New York Fashion Week SS 2012 Favorites

I know... This is just like those fashion week-related blog posts popping out in the web the past weeks but I can't help it. Something tells me to put something out for the blog so that years from now, I can look back and trace the styles I was drawn into and maybe tell a bit of who and what I was.

So anyway, (I'm not even sure if the previous paragraph even makes sense...) I scoured Style.com for runway photos and grabbed the following ones. I might have missed some that I would actually like (I hope I didn't!) but my mouse-clicking superpower apparently is not that super. So!

New York Fashion Week SS 2012 Favorites Diesel Black Gold - Jason Wu - Marc by Marc Jacobs - Suno
The "street-ness" of the first 3 appeals to me while the prints on Suno are up on my alley.
  New York Fashion Week SS 2012 Favorites Anna Sui
Anna Sui's one of my favorites because she has fun with prints which I love. I like that the girls down the runway looks to be having fun. (Anna Sui-related posts here and here.)

New York Fashion Week SS 2012 Favorites Band of Outsiders
I like the easy-breezy-cool vibe to them, something I need in my wardrobe.

New York Fashion Week SS 2012 Favorites Cynthia Rowley
I *love* floral prints that's for sure and that black dress with gold shoulder detail spoke to me.

New York Fashion Week SS 2012 Favorites Erdem
If I haven't said it enough, I love floral prints. When something reminds me of birds chirping in the morning, gardens, afternoon teas and running in the field, it's all pretty to me.

New York Fashion Week SS 2012 Favorites Helmut Lang
Again, easy-breezy-cool. And oh I wonder how soft the fabrics are...

New York Fashion Week SS 2012 Favorites Lela Rose
There's that lime yellow again but no, I'm not complaining. What I'm actually quite fancying about here are the shirts. And to be more specific, the sleeves. If shirts and sleeves can woo me, this is it.

New York Fashion Week SS 2012 Favorites Nicole Miller
I've been looking for a pair of leggings that sort of resembles this Nicole Miller one and I hope it doesn't elude me much longer. That 1st look I totally dig, man. If only I wouldn't look frumpy and all...

New York Fashion Week SS 2012 Favorites 3.1 Philip Lim
What you say about the leather sleeveless trench? It just kicked me in the arse.
  New York Fashion Week SS 2012 FavoritesRachel Comey
I think the knit print is clever - if real knit's too stuffy for summer heat, then why not this. And yes, I'm drawn to "I don't care" and "mismatched" styles.
  New York Fashion Week SS 2012 FavoritesRodarte
I love the Mulleavy sisters even more because of this! Van Gogh FTW!

New York Fashion Week SS 2012 FavoritesThakoon
Printsss! Somebody please save me! On a second thought, NO. And the hair are all sorts of crazy!
  New York Fashion Week SS 2012 FavoritesY-3
I. Love. This. Period. If I can't have my florals, at least I still have the Japanese street aesthetic to run to.

So those are my favourites from NYFW, what are yours? I'm excited about London FW (next post!) - Mary Katrantzou! Meadham Kirchhoff!
