“The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.” - Agnes De Mille

My initial enthusiasm after seeing the images from Peter Som's show is now waning...next Fall/Winter (from a NY perspective at least) is looking dark...tacky dark at Alexander Wang (who is going to wear crocodile biker shorts...who?)...deja vu dark at Rag & Bone (as all the pieces seemed horribly familiar)...and an 80's darkness at DKNY (the color palette was bright but the pieces themselves screamed "1985 suburban department store" and were therefore about as satanically black at you could get).

Even though her color palette was muted, a bright spot was provided by Karen Walker...not that the collection had the quirky ebullience that I'd usually associate with Walker...but it included several looks that I can appreciate from an inspirational perspective (as 95% of the parts that make up the whole are currently residing in my closet). Ah, budget-friendly "closet shopping"...you have to love it.

    I can think of people who will wear crocodile bike shorts if Wang's name is on them :-)
