With day four under way, Sari Sloane, Intermix’s VP of fashion merchandising, took time out of her busy schedule to recap her favorite picks from the weekend. What will she be buying for fall? Hervé Léger’s knits, DVF’s flapper looks, and Jonathan Saunder’s crisp tailoring.
Hervé Léger showed a complete collection of ready-to-wear, taking his signature “bandage” construction beyond dresses and into jackets, knitwear, pants, and skirts. The color palette was full of rich neutrals, deep greens, blues, and wines. The ombrés, dip-dyes, and color-blocking treatments were subtle but striking. New fabrications like wool and satin translated perfectly into his banded looks. My favorite pieces in the collections were numbers twelve and nineteen, a belted neutral knit coat and an ombré sleeveless dress, respectively.

Diane Von Furstenberg
Diane Von Furstenberg’s collection was sophisticated and glamorous. She showed everything from daywear jackets, full trousers, skirts, and knitwear to printed evening gowns and fully beaded flapper dresses. Layering, the mixing of materials, and an emphasis on embellishment made the looks feel powerful and rich. The color palette was dark with pops of jewel tones.

Jonathan’s New York debut was a stunning collection featuring elaborate construction and tailoring. There was great attention to the details, with tight pleating and paneling seen throughout. Caramel, rust, and teal accented many of the black looks. The pièce de résistance: an oversize fox fur hood on a coat and vest which was both cool and glamorous.
