Summary: The lovehawk season apparently embodies "luxury through vintage embellishment & free silhouettes aesthetically crafted around the artistic expression of reptition and reflection." Translation: adorable, downtown girl dresses with tons of shine - metallic fabric, metallic embroidery, paillettes - as well as flattering draping & layers. Each look was even give a quirky name, such as the "he missed me" tailored vest, an "eleventh hour" minidress, "my glass is full" button jacket, and the "what lies ahead" knit dress, showing a fun romantic touch missing in many of the mostly commercial New York collections. The soft, fluid feel of many of the silhouettes, easy layering, and drapey feel were offset by touches like the oversized pancake-like berets, modified squared-off riding bowler hats, and the funky ponytail holder dreamed up under the guidance of Renya Xydis for Wella. What looked, from the front, like a simple, slicked back ponytail worn fairly high on the head actually revealed something different from the side: imagine a letter "y" a few inches long & then wrap it in leather, and attach to the head, giving the ponytail a "supporting beam" starting low on the head, and the base of the "y" then sprouting a long ponytail of hair. 

Color Palette: black; cream; metallic gold; summer'y cream & apricot print; white with silver half moon pailettes

Details & Textures: paillettes; shimmery gold embroidery; emphasis on the natural waist; layers

Key Looks: drapey antique metallic gold jersey mini with "v" ruching on the bodice; white with gold art deco "v" mini with white tights; black full skirted jacket with large buttons
