We are half way through the madness of NYFW( yay!!!) and we can foresee one very important trend for the upcoming Spring. It's "Liquid Metal"!! Liquid metal is the key in many collections from daywear to evening gowns.(Altuzarra, Jason Wu, Helmut Lang), it bring us back to the 90's rock star/disco days with its glamorous shine. This hot trend deserves a whole new post for it, so stay tune.(All images via

Collection : Reem Acra
Reem Acra brings a glamour disco party to the runway this season. The models look playful in their bias cut dresses in houndstooth print or polka dot pattern. And the ultimate sex goddess with her one shoulder draped liquid metallic red-carpet gowns or the silver bias dress with cut-outs. Acra knows how to make her girl stand out in the crowed.

Collection : Kaufmanfranco
Kaufmanfranco is the couturier in sportswear in my opinion. The women in their clothes are wrap with luxurious fabric in a very sophisticate cut. The bandaged top over loose skirt, a cut-out top pair with a leather shorts, or the perfect fitted trench coat. They all seem so effortless but with an edge. 

Collection : 3.1 Phillip Lim
Back to Mother Nature is the inspiration behind Phillip Lim's Spring collection. Where he took the Earth's most natural element geode's formation, embroidered with crystal-like threads on bomber jacket, skirt, and sweater in a beautiful shades of blue. And apply the geode-like prints on silk pants and dresses. Lim has a great skill of balancing the commercial need and conceptual want to his audience. And he did it here by keeping the silhouette clean and simple.

Collection : Ohne Titel
The American sportswear are looking brighter and more interesting thanks to Flora Gill and Alexa Adams of Ohne Titel. They use the modern day knitting technique to create this undulating lines and narrow fluted stripes for sweater dresses, which compliments women's shape so well. And the use of blue, tan and pale pink colors lift up the heaviness of the knitted outfits.
