New York - Autumn/Winter 2007-8, Day 3

Lela Rose - Boxy but sometimes sweet dresses and blouse/skirt combos.

Reyes - More uniform dressing, but this time with a utilitarian/military (current! not antique!) details. Less sweet, less my style.

DKNY - I wouldnt consider myself a Donna Karan fan, but she always seems to whip up exactly what I want to wear. I guess she's got the understanding and experience of making clothes that actually sell. The color scheme is nothing short of gorgeous - all charcoals and purples - and the tweed dresses and suits are so covetable.

Naum - The avant dresses and coats are impressive, but the rest was too Flashdance-ian.

United Bamboo - Proper pieces with paper-folding-technique tailoring.

Sari Gueron - Loose drapings, easy-to-wear Winter office gear. Very Sophia Coppola.

Luella - I think she's pushing us to fox-hunting or into forming a band. She's always so very cool. Stuffy suit jackets and coats, with wacky twists seem to be another theme for Fall.

Philip Lim - A little frumpy and bland, with some nice jackets and skirts mixed in.

Tracy Reese - Metallics, tans, dusty pinks, and black. Super smart dresses that rank with the sophistication and prettiness of Chanel to me.

Erin Fetherston - Pretty, dreamy dresses and ruffles! Love that dove grey, with a little shimmer.

Diane von Furstenberg - A harder, more cerebrally sexy look than we're used to from DVF. I'm not sure I'm won over.

Issa - Modern woodland prints on simple dresses make for a nice theme. Something is a bit dungeons and dragons here that I cant place, but I do like.

Naeem Khan - Romantically regal. Sophisticated and sexy. Exactly the gala wear you'd want in this weather.

Tuleh - The sexiest trousers I've seen. That's quite a lot of fur though.

Matthew Williamson - A little too heavy on the 70s Mrs Roper. Fun injections for the Winter, if you're the brave sort.

I want that purple dkny coat now! today!

And I agree, the Tuleh trousers look flattering and comfortable at the same time....
