It’s only day three of New York Fashion Week but there’s already been plenty of drama. Blizzard Nemo is wreaking havoc along the East Coast, causing Marc Jacobs to postpone his show and placing a question mark over the current show schedule. Luckily the first two days of presentations went without a hitch, and the RED Valentino collection is a clear NYFW highlight. Inspired by Hansel and Gretel, the Autumn/Winter 2013 designs fuse folkloric prints with girlish silhouettes and super-short proportions.
The collection is cute, but not sickly sweet. I can picture the Fanning sisters (Elle in particular) wearing almost all of the designs, which is a strong sign. RED Valentino have definitely set the bar high, this season, so I can’t wait to see what else comes out of NYFW. Fingers crossed Nemo doesn’t cause too much disruption…
