Fashion Week: The Usual Suspects at Luca Luca, Rebecca Taylor, Charlotte Ronson
|The usual suspects|
Rebecca Taylor, the New Zealand designer who is a favorite among young actresses and socialites, changed things up this season big-time. Instead of the flowery-patterned short skirts and silky spring blouses, Taylor exhibited lots of grays and neon green (more neon green!). We found it to be modernly casual, a sort of futuristic aesthetic -- the models sported slicked-back hair with a streak of blue and green eyeshadow. Ironically, the runway show playlist consisted of '80s tunes. We love how Taylor has transitioned from using florals to using tribal patterns, and garnished each outfit with a string of beads.
We're always excited to cover a Charlotte Ronson show, because it's never short of drama and/or hype -- and usually carries out both. Seen in the front row were Kelly Osbourne, Peaches Geldof, Patricia Field -- with corn-rows and an over-sized gray blazer -- Russell Simmons, his niece Vanessa Simmons a row away, Nicky Hilton, Joy Bryant, Margherita Missoni, and a bunch of other regulars. Apparently, buns are in, as every other woman was sporting one atop her head.

Like always, Charlotte's sister Samantha provided a lively, hip soundtrack made up '90s alt-rock, and it went perfectly with the beautifully crafted grungy-chic collection. Ronson showcased remarkable sets of navy blue crochet tank-tops and long skirts, though we weren't fans of the denim color-block shorts and jacket. Ronson knows how to dress young girls, but we've seen her develop a sense of maturity, and this collection exemplifies that.
