There are plenty of allover prints, including starbasket, blue connector, strata and triad prints. The collection is detailed with tufted chiffon, embroidery and beading. 

Braided hair by Thomas Osborn + Adrianna Papaleo for Catwalk by TIGI were absolutely amazing! The smokey eye looks were by Lottie for Maybelline NY. Nails were by Alicia Torello for Zoya and jewelry was by Erin Considine.

Backstage at Charlotte Ronson Fall/Winter 2015 at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

Charlotte Ronson Fall/Winter 2015 is inspired by the serenity of nature coupled against an abstract urban setting. The collection is a play on the purity of the late 60's sportswear construction mixed with ultra delicate and feminine materials. The palette features navy, burgundy, military green, granite prints and blurry florals. The collection was accessorized with jewejrly by Anndra Neen for Luxcartel, Tights by Hue and Shoes by Quipid.

Desigual Fall 2015 at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week


Desigual Fall 2015 reflects on many cultures coming together - from folk crafts and lush landscapes to works of art from North, South, East and West. Desigual's canvas this season pulls from an abstract painting, a swatch of upholstery, a photograph in a book about Africa, a historic trip through Renaissance Northern Europe and a flush landscape full of flowers. 

Fall 2015 features black and white geometric prints, multi-hued embroideries, Oriental carpet motifs and vivid abstract Baroque tapestries. The collection anchors around medieval gemstones, contemporary paintings and exotic flower bouquets, all rendered on printed tulles, jacquards, embossed hair, and duchess satin. 

Among my favorites are a chunk-knit, ethnic print sweater, Nordic-print sweater coat, black-and-white pullover sweater paired with a black-and-white geometric tube skirt, faux fur bomber jacket, and sheer folk embroidery motif blouse. I also loved how the looks were accessorized, with pompom hats and bright, yellow suede ankle boots. I always anticipate how Desigual mixes contrast prints together. You can always count on Desigual to be fun, playful and vibrant.
