Fashion Fantasies on a Saturday Night

Helmut Lang

BCBG Max Azria

Rag & Bone

Rachel Comey

Since I can't be at Fashion Week and no longer have a life to speak of on weekend nights, I will have to suffer through this lonely night with a few inspirational highlights from some favorite designers' shows this week. (RIP, Alexander McQueen)

I first realized the appeal of Helmut Lang when I worked for They do a lot of seemingly simple black. I mean a lot of black. But then you try a piece on and realize how perfectly slick and downtown cool you look. I kind of need those jeans with the zippers down the thighs.

Intriguing dress from BCBG in a color combination that I'm easily drawn to again and again.

I love the artful layering from Rag & Bone. Their clothes are impeccably made and the tailoring is always amazing, so it's a nice bonus to see the effortless feel that this collection imparts.

Rachel Comey always does beautiful feminine pieces with just a hint of urban sensibility. Very wearable, too.

I look forward to seeing what next week's designers bring. Marc Jacobs is live-streaming his show on Monday at 8pm EST (5pm PST), which is awesome. I also look forward to seeing what next Saturday night has in store for me. Perhaps some See's chocolates to go with my glass of wine? Dream big...
