New York Fashion Week: Best of the rest

At the Marc by Marc Jacobs show, New York’s brightest design light gave us 1970s, 1940s and fun for autumn 13.

Raising eyebrows (as per) rather than smiles was Thom Browne, whose boxy mannish tailoring and textiles were contrasted with more feminine, fantastical elements.

Another designer not averse to fantasy is John Galliano, back from exile helping out at Oscar de la Renta, who presented something darker than his usual uptown glamour.

If it’s glamour you’re after, Diane von Furstenberg had it in spades, revisiting the genesis of her signature style for a printed, boldly coloured riot.

The Mulleavys were referencing their rebellious youth at Rodarte with a late 1980s-tinged odd romanticism/retro mash-up.

It was rebels too at 3.1 Phillip Lim as the designer presented a luxurious take on girl biker gangs, while Michael Kors’ woman went more mannish with a precise yet exciting look punctuated by big colour.

Donna Karan meanwhile revisited her 1985 concept Seven Easy Pieces, completing a circle by incorporating modern fabrics like neoprene to bring things nicely up to date.
