Today's online NYFW observation is about Thakoon, who I hadn't heard of until I watched The September Issue - i'll freely admit it.
There was more fur on the catwalk than you could shake a stick at, so that should make Wintour happy. This collection sees Thakoon taking a brave stride into the cool kids club, with his previously romantic collections being over shadowed by bold statements in fur and yep, velvet.
I think I've just found a new crush

So Alexander Wang hit NYFW last night (UK time), a show that was highly anticipated by fashion journalists and fans the world over. I, like anyone else who found themselves in on a Saturday night, caught the whole show as it was live streamed on Show Studio - cue nasal tones to my boyfriend "please may I watch the Wang show streamed liiiiiive?" It worked and I was enraptured.
Wang said the collection was about "growing up, about progress", Style.com's Meenal Mistry called it "more precise, less street chic manner, slicing away extraneous elements". Fabrics included leather, velvet, beading and sheer. Dresses were gloriously draped, knitwear was chunky and modelled by Agyness, heels were also v chunky and layering was still very much in the picture Oh...and now backpacks are well and truly back, FYI, Wang co-signed that.
The front row featured Geldofs, Hollands, Tavis and many a New York hipster as well as le grand dame Anna Wintour.

Former Chloe designer Phoebe Philo unveiled her first collection for Celine last year to much critical acclaim, as you can see from the photos key pieces include leather t shirt and muted colours as well as some killer open toe wedge.
Susy Menkes from the Telegraph says:
After a four-year maternity break, Philo has had time to gain clarity about what’s missing from fashion: solid tailoring, fantastic coats, well-cut trousers, a way of no-fuss dressing that exudes dignified good taste, and makes a woman feel sorted and sexy with it.
Menkes goes onto inform us that the prices at Celine have now gone into the 'luxury' bracket ie not affordable in the slightest!
Luckily, Banan Republic have created a fab collection for ss10 which features muted tones, an interesting take on the trench coat, denim shirts and open toe wedges which each item coming in at less than £100. Check out the below pictures from BR's website or check out the Banana Republic stores on London's Regent Street or at Brent Cross.

It's New York Fashion Week, so let's start with Preen and hold our breaths in excitement about Wang showing in a mere few hours.
Both Hilary Alexander from the Telegraph and Meenal Mistry from Style.com have praised Preen's show as a great turning point for the brand who have been relying on the body con dress for quite a few seasons now. Today's show saw Preen introduce masculine tailoring into their range as they collaborated with womenswear label Gieves & Hawkes.
Quote from style.com:
But let's not call these "boyfriend" pieces; "husband" seems more appropriate. The designers softened the harder edges with airily sophisticated silk and cashmere dresses, along with cocoon coats so cocoon-y you could spend an entire winter in them, especially if you are lucky enough to have one in fur cleverly cut to look like croc.
Here are some of my favourite looks:
