Wang's jersey suggests a new New York

There are yet to be any clear uniting themes coming out of New York at the halfway point of the spring 10 showings.

Deconstructed sportswear was the story behind Alexander Wang’s jersey-heavy offering over the weekend.

Jogging bottoms and sweatshirts were luxed up with leather shoulder and hip panels, workout tops were infused with chiffon cut-away panels, while the traditional US college letter sweater motif appeared on a double breasted two tone jacket.

The sportswear theme carried through with racer stripes along the side of body-con dresses and high-waisted silk trousers, while the collection finished off with snow white leotards with sheer-waisted inserts. Fabric combinations were also key with grey jersey paired with tan leather, and lycra cottons with chiffon panels, and an underlying utilitarian feel came through via double-pocketed khaki shirts and loose-fit cotton shorts.

Spring at Diane Von Furstenberg means plenty of bright kaftans, animal prints and floaty floral dresses. Spring 10 continued along the same course, with heavy tribal beading, neon leopard prints, and fringed shift dresses all hitting the DVF spot.

Going slightly off piste with grey jersey harem pants may fail to attract the typical Von Furstenberg buyer, however after that minor blip, the show flowed nicely into some more interesting prints of what appeared to be scribbled florals and record discs, before the eveningwear kicked in courtesy of caramel satin cropped pants and matching three quarter length blazers.
