Francesca Liberatore fall/winter 2017/2018 collection New York Fashion Week, February 11, 2017, Skylight Clarkson in New York. These photos were taken from my seat.

Francesca Liberatore has outdone herself this season! Every season I look forward to viewing Francesca Liberatore’s collection at New York Fashion  Week. It is always inspired and fresh; yet completely wearable. For fall 2017, her collection has gone a step further. She has taken her collection and made it more luxurious for fall. I am in love!

For the fall/winter 2017/2018 season, Francesca Liberatore took her inspiration from Hyde Park. Not just Hyde Park, but two distinctly different Hyde Parks. One in London in the 1990s with a nod to iconic music group Oasis, and one in New York which is home to the library and residence of Franklin D Roosevelt. Love this!

The collection was filled with powerful stripes in shades of rich blood orange, brick red, magenta, lime, grey, and black which “harken a progress parade on the world’s stage.” There were also shades of champagne, ivory, and pewter. Liberatore used beautiful fabrications which includes velvet and embroidery. Her collection took inspiration from the powerful and popular; how their words can effect society, and how society can shape or destroy them. A nod to current affairs.

The navy and champagne ensemble pictured above was my favorite look from the runway. I felt like it not only embodied her show’s vibe, it had a romantic air about it which I love.

Wearing: ivory tassel earrings / Chanel spring lipstick / black scarf, brand unknown, also love this one on sale / Suede Coat c/o Thacker NYC / dress c/o Thacker NYC (on sale!!!) / Chanel spring nail polish / black and rose gold watch / Givenchy handbag / leggings c/o Thacker NYC / black booties last season, also love this pair

Day two of New York Fashion Week was super busy! I attended Dan Liu, LANYU, Hakam Akkaya, Concept Korea, RtA, and Chromat. After the shows, I met up with fellow GenX blogger SimplySylvia. In order to survive a busy day like this, I needed to wear something comfortable!

Thacker NYC is a fabulous clothing brand based in New York City. Thier concept is to create a capsule wardrobe which can be mixed and matched, season after season. I love how this coat, tunic/dress, and leggings were perfect paired together for fashion week. When I get back home, and start heading into the spring season, I am looking forward to separating the pieces and mixing them into other outfits. They are so versatile! Love that!

I already wore the coat before fashion week. You can see how I styled it online here. This dress/tunic is great because it can be worn as a tunic over leggings or skinny jeans. It can also be worn as a dress. It will be really cute this summer with high heel sandals for dinner on a patio! Love!

With the athleisure trend in full swing, more on that from me later in the month, these Thacker NYC leggings will be front and center. They are made from extremely high quality fabric, and are so comfortable! Love!

You can find more versatile pieces for your wardrobe by Thacker NYC online at ThackerNYC.com.

Stay tuned! I will be reworking these pieces throughout the spring and summer seasons!

RtA held a cool presentation with a downtown vibe for fall/winter 2017/2018 at Industria Studios in New York during New York Fashion Week on February 10, 2017. The outfits were casual chic; with jackets and coats which gave off a boyfriend vibe. The collection was effortless, cool, and something to covet for fall. Love!

I fell in love with every coat and jacket in the collection. The striped turtleneck RtA features for fall is a must-have too. There were also overalls, a huge street style trend right now, and RtA made them fabulous.

You can get your hands on RtA’s current collection online here. Look for it this fall online here too! I plan on getting the turtleneck, followed by a few of these fabulous coats as soon as they hit the stores! Love!
