>> Geometry played a big part in BCBG's Fall 2012 collection, via colorblocking, carefully constructed details like sheer insets and leather trim, and a focus on proportions. It was an artful collection thanks to rich mixes of even richer colors — paprika, merlot, rust, and coral — and simple, streamlined silhouettes.

>>This Fall, Rachel Comey's quirky indie girl is all grown up. What's she wearing? '60s-tinged separates in super-modern fabrics — laser-cut cotton, wax-dipped felt, metallic jacquard — and a toned-down palette of gray, black, and white. If that sounds subdued, don't worry. These ladylike pieces still have just the right amount of slouch, and there are plenty of interesting prints to get excited about. Our favorites? A stamped-on grid print in black and white and a vibrantly hued lounging-lady floral collage. "You got to still have some fun," Comey explains.
>> Last night's amfAR gala to kick off Fall 2012 Fashion Week had it all. There were superstars (Julianne Moore, Sarah Jessica Parker), icons (Carine Roitfeld, Roberto Cavalli), and way too many supermodels to count — Heidi Klum, Cindy Crawford, Molly Sims, Erin Heatherton, and Anja Rubik, just to name a few. Cavalli, who was honored at the event, offered insight into his newfound passion: social media. "I discovered I love to write. It's a new emotion," the designer explained. "I love to watch when people write me back, it's such love." See images from the evening — which raised $1.4 million for AIDS research, prevention, and education — here.
