Designer Runway Uniform - Spring 2008 RTW

Every fashion junkie in the world knows that it's New York fashion week for Spring 2008. For those of you who aren't aware of this fact, you've either been living under a rock for the past two weeks or you haven't been reading Vogue, Style.com and a ridiculous amount of fashion blogs like I have.

Needless to say, every angle of fashion week is being covered by a number of bloggers and publications, so I've decided to forgo any runway collection posts on this blog. Trust me, there are many more people out there that can analyze, summarize and review these recent collections better than I can. I find all the clothing a bit overwhelming, which is why I prefer to look at what the actual designers are wearing.

In general most designers keep their outfits simple during their shows (exceptions include John Galliano, Betsy Johnson and Anna Sui). In fact, there almost seems to be a designer day-of-show uniform.

Black and white:

Narciso Rodriguez, Doo Ri, Carolina Herrera

Blue button-up with jeans:

Marc Jacobs, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, Derek Lam

Classic white shirt & khakis:

Jeremy Laing, Peter Som

Black cardigan:

Phillip Lim, Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte

i always love seeing what miuccia is wearing.
it just goes to show that one does not have to dress fashionably to express style.
