>> The rain is beastly today, but that didn't keep Trish Goff or Alexa Chung — who arrived with her hair soaked — from the front row; Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi's baby, too, had a front row seat atop a minder's lap. Anna Selezneva opened the '90s grunge-inspired show, which featured dresses in holographic prints, lots of texture in both the fabric and ruffled panels curving around skirts and pieced onto dresses, and a finale full of highlighter pink. Cut-out wedge sandals finished off every look. Now, the question becomes: who's going to dare to wear the metallic silver Barberella-esque bustier dress?

Fans of Yigal Azrouël's cropped leather jackets and layered jersey separates will not be disappointed in the designer's spring 2010 collection shown today in the tents at Bryant Park.
The color palette took a turn for the lighter as Azrouël used mostly muted shades of gray, navy and white (with the exception of a bright orange belted cocktail dress at exit 22). True to form, day looks were layered in draped jersey. This season with the addition of slashed bandeau tops under transparent white tanks and tees, and blouses embroidered at the shoulder with faux military epaulettes.
For evening, Azrouël focused on slashing his signature jersey into bold graphic shapes, using metal hardware to connect the top and bottom of an exceptional party dress and connecting strips of raw jersey to create a stone-colored sleeveless shift.
A thick heather gray vest stood out as must-own, as did the complete look in model Tao's last exit - an antique lamb jacket, slashed tee and linen trousers.
The men's collection also carried over some of the most successful elements of Azrouël's designs - striped tees, asymmetrical cardigans and always those buttery leather jackets. The noteworthy additions here were washed cotton jackets with leather details, a trench coat with removable sleeves and casual burlap totes.
Jen Kao lightened up fall's moody palette this season with a collection that largely stayed within neutral tones of rose, gray, and white. While colors were paler, Kao continued to please her tough-chic fans with cropped motorcycle jackets, geometric bustier dresses and sharp cut-outs. As Kao explained, "The collection is feminine, but still very structural. The clothes are free and draped, but still very complex in the way they are built."
The detailed construction was evident in the graphic paneling of a suede mini skirt, a silk kimono with chain embroidery, and a sharply tailored white suit with strong shoulders. Eddie Borgo cuffs and earrings were a nice hard-edged contrast to the collection, as were Tania Spinellie's chain mail fringe heels. Each inspired, according to Kao, by medieval face shields and all styled expertly by Keegan Singh.
