NYFW Day Two: Monochrome gets fancy
Think monochrome is only for dull work wear or unoriginal party dress? Think again! The Olsen sister’s The Row, Jason Wu and Cynthia Rowley all showed some seriously sophisticated monochromatic pieces and interesting use of texture.
Cynthia Rowley packed floral, brush stroke and paint spatter prints into her black and white creations, which were also embellished with leather meshing, golden geometric shapes and elaborate embroidery – busy but interesting. Despite cinched in waists and feminine dresses, the collection retained an air of chaotic coolness making it seriously wearable and desirable.

Meanwhile the Olsen Twins’ fashion label The Row restricted itself to white – only. The emphasis was on texture and the beautiful craftsmanship of the garments with a mixture of structured pieces with Japanese influences as well as loose flowing forms, especially wide trousers with drawstring waists –effortlessly cool.

Jason Wu went pastel crazy for S/S 12 but also impressed with some sexed up work wear, pussy bow blouses, retro shorts and floaty polka dots. We like this new type of power dressing.
