I dropped off our Fall 2013 collection in New York last week. And I'm so excited because we have some new bag styles that are so fantastic, cannot wait to wear them, photograph them, & share them. I don't go to fashion week for the shows, I go for showroom appointments, but thankfully I get to go to a few on the side because I get to see firsthand the loveliness and the spectacle of it all.
All photos taken not so stealthily with my iPhone. Clockwise from top left: Bryan boy and Rumi from Fashion Toast; the backsides of Jenna Lyons and Anna Wintour at J. Crew presentation; Linda Rodin and a very cool lady in pink next to her; phalanx of photogs at Honor; the girls walk Honor; Garance Doré outside Lincoln Center; ladies walk Karen Walker.
That's me (one person away from blogstars the Manrepeller and Bryan Boy!) front row at Karen Walker, which I thought was brilliant and I'd wear almost every piece in the show - including:
KW signature amazing sunnies which top off this tweed coat with cute pleats and
this amazing wool trench with the wide leg trousers and 
these orange loafers!! I want and need.
These were the tomboys at Steven Alan's presentation. I love a blazer but maybe even more than that, I love high water pants. Add a silk scarf and I'm so ready...
I love this bill board on 10h Ave. with all different versions of Me+You, You-Me, and Me+Me and You +You, all of which amounts to the same thing. It was a perfect Valentines day spotting.
Hotel Americano in Chelsea has become one of my favorite spots to stay - always a cozy, calm and chic place to rest and regain energy for the next day pounding the pavement of NYC.

That Karen Walker coat is all kinds of fabulous. It's nice to get a more natural/everyday glimpse of fashion week. It's refreshing! I'd love to know which bag you've got photographed in the last photo - it's exactly what I've been looking for (black without the black lining!.
