though it is hovering in the fifties today, summer is on the horizon, which means that ankles will be showing their pale selves sooner than you can reach for your jergen’s natural glow. with that in mind, i’ve been thinking about ankle cuffs; they’ve been subtly appearing on the runway for some seasons now, but mara hoffman solidified my lust with her fall 2014 collection where her models donned those by fililí

in preparation for its annual, week-long scadstyle celebration, the savannah school of design enlisted some top designers to describe their latest collections, day-to-day life, personal style, and so on. within the short pre-event film, alexander wang explained that his spring accessories “were inspired by his friends who have trouble keeping track of their belongings when they go out partying at night, also known as “party chicks.” i don’t doubt that they thanked him mightily for the practical go-tos, which feature lighter cases on shoes and retractable key rings on the handbags.

something cool that happened during fashion week? opening ceremony revealed an upcoming collection inspired by the works of rené magritte. featured in the form of both clothing and footwear (birkenstocks and fans included), “the range takes twelve of magritte's iconic paintings and translates them directly into fashion.” basically, it is awesome. while i am scared of the prices that will accompany these pieces, you can expect me to be scurrying into the nearest o.c. in may when they become available.

pale pink isn’t just for pepto-bismol anymore, it actually makes an amazing color palette for a wardrobe, as perfectly demonstrated by kaelen's semi-monochromatic fall 2014 collection. i want all of it on me right now — and i don’t even like pink.

it’s been a couple weeks since new york fashion week, but i still can’t get public school's fall 2014 collection out of my head. for someone with a slightly minimal, slightly tomboyish personal style (me), it was absolutely glorious and a very impressive first line-up with regard to womenswear. basically, everyone is going crazy over this brand, which really jumped onto the fashion industry radar when designers maxwell osborne and dao-yi chow were initiated into the cfda incubator; i have a feeling this is the tip of their iceberg, so definitely put them on on your “to watch” list.

i am a sucker for a good coat and band of outsiders never lets me down in that department. its fall 2014 range is one for the ages and i’d really, really love it if the three shown above (and the rest of those outfits) delicately insert themselves in my closet.

for the first time, yestadt millinery displayed a range of gloves at its fall 2014 preview. the styles were the perfect counterpart to molly’s quirky-femme headgear.

during new york fashion week, i look forward to seeing what milk studios has cooked up; the location is more like lincoln center’s bad-ass cousin with a flask in her back pocket. if you weren’t aware, milk studios plays host to many of the more “indie” designers during the week, ones who crave creativity and innovation in fashion over retail sales.

on a related note, aldo also sets up shop at milk displaying its latest ‘aldo rise’ collab with an emerging designer and fall 2014 will be all about ostwald helgason. expect to see the eye-catching accessories shown during that runway show in-store next season.

note: milk, ostwald helgason, and aldo rise are all on tumblr. follow ‘em, stat.

thanks to calla and its fall 2014 collection, i hope to live in a plaid paradise come autumn. in addition to these amazing looks that i need/want to have, designer calla haynes dedicated much of the season to her chow chow lilybear, which is amazing.
