Today was one of the most anticipated days of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014. Not only Victoria Beckham and Diane Von Furstenberg where scheduled, but also DNKY and Thakoon were included (fashion heavyweights of the week). These designers are exactly who gave the most when it comes to innovation and true design. Let me show you a little bit of what they presented today. Go to see the schedule for the Spring/Summer 2014 season here.

EN ESPAÑOL:
Hoy era uno de los días más anticipados del Mercedes Benz Fashion Week verano 2014, no solo era la presentación de Victoria Beckham y Diane Von Furstenberg, sino también de DKNY y Thakoon, nombres pesados que ya han sonado desde hace algunos años en New York. Y fueron precisamente estos diseñadores los que más aportaron innovación y sorpresa el día de hoy. Para ver el calendario completo de NY, Paris, Milan y Londres, verano 2014, da click aquí.

Victoria Beckham started five years ago with her fashion line always thinking about the woman's body, no only the shape, but the shape of it underneath the clothing. Today she's designing clothing for woman of the world, women who travel, who are in top of her game, who mix and match preppy and sporty style, but this collection, for sure, went a little bit more for the sport-chic arena. And its totally ok, since sport-comfy clothing is what women are looking for in the stores right now. If you don't believe me, go ask Alexander Wang who's been designing sporty clothing since his very beginning at Parson's. I love the transition of the color palette of this collection, she's well-known for her black and white fixation, but she smartly introduced a beautiful scheme of dark wine red, bloody, and hot pink. ¡Adorable!

Here's another example of how big of a deal the sport-chic trend is right now. DKNY went from hybrid-blazer-hoodies to Gym jackets mixed with line A min-skirts. It's like they just get out of the gym, put on some office clothing (over the gym clothes) and went to work. I love the color palette because of the hot orange balanced with the black-and-white ensembles. And look at the shoes! Donna covered everything.

A couple of the most powerful supermodels in the world walked for Diane in her show today, to cover a little bit the lack of innovation and strength that gave Diane a name in the business back in the day. Of course this collection has every nowadays trend out there, from the crop tops, to the tangerine, to the white on white ensembles, but there wasn't nothing that speaks for the collection on its own, it felt like she borrowed something from every designer of the New York Fashion Week and mixed everything together in her collection. She made into my list because well, Naomi Campbell closed the show. lol.

Remember "The September Issue"'s Thakoon? Anna's Favorite? Well, he's been the designer "to look up to" even since at the New York Fashion Week, and even when he is not the most innovative, he's definitely trying to do something out of the box. Once again, the trends are there, starting from the crop-tops, but look at that metallic accent, the vinyl skirt and top, or the head to thigh boots-sandals/whatever the fuck that is. The essence of this collection was quite hippie-ish-grunge that you even dare to say that some of the girls need to take a shower, but he managed to pull a decent collection, and very commercial, too. I guess he learn that from Anna.
