Alexander Wang Gets Sacrilegious
Showing marijuana leaves and stripper poles in a church is such a Fashion thing to do. That's right, Alexander Wang sent 90s-tinged street looks featuring drug references, strippers, and prison down the runway at Saint Bartholomew's Church in an explicit denunciation of the line between sacred and secular. It's the kind of borderline offensive thing only one of New York's favorite designers could get away with, and judging by the amount of Instagrams and Snapchats of the show, it was a huge success. You just know those stripper sweaters are going to be everywhere come next Fashion Week.

I Want Everything From J. Crew
Once again, the J. Crew presentation gave me plenty of outfit envy as well as styling inspiration. Somsack Sikhounmuong, the new head of womenswear at J. Crew, is off to a promising start with a collection full of bright colors, print clashing, and awesome layering. I'm happy to see J. Crew return to its preppy cool roots; it's at its best when it's not trying to be something else. Also, as long as they try to answer the eternal question "What would Jenna Lyons wear?" J. Crew's gonna be all good.
Delpozo Wows Again
Josep Font has become the most consistently exciting designer at NYFW. His collections for Delpozo are fun and inventive and breathe life into what can get to be a rather redundant week of fashion. These clothes aren't for the faint of heart, but they are gorgeous, with an attention to detail that few non-couture designers give. I said this on Tumblr, but I think Josep Font could be a great fit for the head designer job at Christian Dior.
Are We Ready For the Return of the Tracksuit?
