Fashion Week: Meskita

What: São Paulo born designer Alessandra Meskita debut runway collection for New York Fashion Week. A collection inspired by 1950s Hollywood, the aesthetics inspired a dose of glam and nostalgia. 

Take away: day to night sportswear in neoprene - traditionally used for wet suits -  mix with wool, chiffon and leather. Bodycon dresses carry the signature fall palettes of mauve, blue, black, turquoise and winter white.

What we love: a neoprene cut coat that opened the show, a black silk embroidery mini dress, mauve neoprene circle skirt with black leather tee shirt.

Fashion Week: Custo Barcelona

What: tribal patterns re imagined in soft, feminine silhouettes. 

Take away: déshabillé dresses in shimmery tribal prints are paired with beautiful coats. Despite the array of beautiful colors, the effect is subtle yet elegant, thanks to the heavy use of Lurex thread fabrics that give the clothes a nice sheen. It's wonderful to see the label moving away from its signature print dresses or tees to do something more sophisticated, such as a tailored jacket in intricate prints. This is a strong collection that appeals to a wide range of personalities - from the meek to the vivacious. 

What we love: the tailored jacket and overcoat in a beautiful tribal print. A kimono sleeve dress in a gorgeous hot pink print.
