The season has been progressing so far with the most delightful and powerful collections, and it's getting better. Today at the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, Spring/Summer 2014 designers such as Ruffian, Alexander Wang, Prabal Gurung, Lacoste and Monique Lhuillier presented their collections giving an extra empowerment to the word: femininity. From the soft-delicate colors, to the beautiful silhouettes. A couple of them very glam-chic-evening driven while some others kept exploring the sport-chic universe. Click here to see the rest of the schedule for this season.

The collection was definitely the highlight of the day. Prabal Gurung proved that he knows how to dress a woman differently with each collection, he respects his DNA as a designer but goes further exploring new textures, colors and silhouettes. This collection kinda remains me to Lanvin because of the beautiful pencil skirts and the colorful prints. I'm in love his the eyewear as well, it kinda complements the entire take giving it an extra 80's look-and-feel to the clothing.

There's something in Lacoste than never stops to amazing me. It's a very traditional american brand who has to appeal to people into sports (such as tennis itself, of course) but that always have to propose something new and different with each collection introducing everything trendy at the moment. We saw crop tops, cut-outs, see-through fabrics, washed colors, yet the simplicity and the sport spirit was still there (in fact some of the girls came out wearing gym shoes). This was also very Calvin Klein-ish right? It's not something bad, it's just that the entire look-and-feel has something of that other brand.

Alexander Wang did it again with his sport-chic, all day wearable DNA, exactly what made him famous, but it was kinda tired and dated at the same time. He is in charge of Balenciaga right now and you'd expect from him something a little bit more elaborated and innovative, putting a "Parental Advisory" in from of a sweater is not gonna do the job. Some of the ensembles looked cheap as well (such as the denim ones), but I guess the entire collection is gonna sell well and that's why he made it into my list because he's business driven.

How adorable was this collection? It was colorful, fun, wearable, and meant for summer, I just love how the prints and the graphics are kinda related to Latin America, I could easily see some designer from Colombia make something exactly like this. It's kinda refreshing to see bright playful colors on the runway after seen so much washed colors the past few days.
