>> A note to Gap: rather than collaborating with designers like Doo.ri, Rodarte, and Thakoon — who I love, but they're totally not your style — consider Rag & Bone. They've got the right neutral color palette and the casual cool aesthetic going on; in short: both very you. Or who you strive to be, at least.
Plus, their tailoring is really starting to come of age, especially on the outerwear. I could tell from yesterday's show, even as far back from the runway as I was. The stellar quality of these clothes doesn't translate nearly as well into the photos, but trust me, these are what good staple clothes look like, with a bit of a Britishy twist.

>> We get knocked down, but we get up again; and that's just what happened to Anabela Belikova at BCBG yesterday. The poor girl took quite a tumble as she neared the end of her runway loop, causing the crowd to collectively gasp — one woman on the front row even reached down to try and help her.
Anabela finished the last few feet of her turn, and then disappeared backstage holding her lower back in pain. Ouch!
We're backstage at Lyell right now at the National Arts Club in Gramercy. It's a beautiful old building with creaky wooden floors and haunting portraits of people that are not fashion designers or journalists. The models are stuffing their faces with pizza, as any good Lyell girl would, while the rest of the crew lines up the Ferragamo's and loiters around the stereo. This year, Lyell designer, Emma Fletcher, won an Ecco Domani award. Her designs are willowy and delicate, the kind of pieces that compliment starched trousers, porkpie hats, and wingtips.
