Y-3

Actually sporty sportswear is having a major moment. And it's only fitting that the adidas x Yohji Yamamoto collaborative Y-3 is celebrating its 10th anniversary at the apex of the trend this New York Fashion Week. In honor of the benchmark year, Yohji went back to an adidas x Y-3 stand-by: the classic triple racing stripe. It's an iconic design element of the adidas streetwear brand that's most commonly seen on their tracksuits and shell-tops as popularized in the '80s by Run-D.M.C., but an anniversary is an opportunity to look back but also show growth, so Yohji takes the triple stripes and reimagines them for modern sportswear. The end result is fresh, athletic, and even a little collegiate.

Rag & Bone

When we think Rag & Bone, we think layers. Like, layers upon layers upon layers. Basically, the design duo behind the NYC-based label, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville, are the masters of piling it on. If you remember last season's collection, they painstakingly put together one visually stunning mixed pattern ensemble after another, but for spring 2013, they decided to go for a much simpler, sleeker and stripped-down look. Their athleticwear-inspired shift dresses, slouchy miniskirts, and bomber jackets all have a hint of sportiness to them—whether it's the addition of an unexpected cargo pocket here or the use of jersey mesh fabric on a sculpted dress there. Even the slicked-back hair suggests the life of an active girl-on-the-go. Although the exterior emits a strong and powerful look, the black lace trim peeking out beneath a set of sculpted leather shorts or a barely-buttoned up blouse add a soft, feminine feel to the overall edginess of the ensemble.

Kendall Kylie Jenner Sherri Hill

It feels like just yesterday that both Kendall AND Kylie Jenner were making their first-ever runway debut at New York Fashion Week (Kendall at Sherri Hill and Kylie at Abbey Dawn), but really it's been a year since we saw the Kardashian kin strut their stylish stuff. WHEW. While the time feels like it's flying by, the Jenner sisters have certainly been WERKIN' it in the meantime, and we've noticed! The ladies looked flawless in their glittery, prom-ready gowns during Sherri Hill's spring 2013 show on Friday evening. Kendall sported a super sleek high bun, smokey eye and nude lip for her return to the runway, while Kylie traded in her punky pink tips from last year for gorgeous Old Hollywood side waves that we looove.

Models strutted their stuff in Google's futuristic glasses at NYFW.

The future is nearly here, and we got to take a glimpse into it at Diane Von Furstenberg's Spring 2013 show at New York Fashion Week today. Google has been slowly but surely giving us more information on their mysterious Project Glass for a while now, but there are many questions left unanswered, and for a lot of people who aren't diehard tech junkies, this might be their first look at the project within a larger context. First, a little more info: Google Glass is a device that's worn much like a pair of glasses, and might one day even be able to be worn attached to a pair of prescription shades or sunnies, that functions much like an iPhone or digital camera but is totally hands free. At the end of her runway show today, DVF herself was wearing the device, and could be seen mouthing "I'm filming you" to the lovely people in the front row (which included Sarah Jessica Parker and Bravo's Andy Cohen) as she took her bow accompanied by Google co-founder Sergey Brin. Honestly, though, we're not entirely sure how the glass works, and neither, it seems, are fans of both the glass and DVF, who, when the designer posted photos taken with it to her Google+ page, kept asking about the user interface. Do you talk to it, like Apple's Siri? CAN IT READ YOUR MIND? What we do know is that it takes pretty great photos, and the designer and her staff have been using both the photo and video functions to record on the runway and off, to be released as a short film on Thursday September 13th. Check out more photos seen "thruglass" as DVF's hashtag so poetically puts it, after the jump.

Christian Siriano New York Fashion Week

Unlike Christian Siriano's dark and vampy fall 2012 collection, his spring 2013 runway was filled with tons of light pink, baby blue and seafoam green pastel pieces that screamed summer. His line included everything from work-ready pearl-accented peplum dresses to button-up brocade jumpsuits to flowy landscape print frocks. Between the tutu silhouettes, soft high buns, and blaring remixed classical music during the show, the inspiration behind the collection was clear—it was ALL about the ballet. When we caught up with Christian backstage, he told us this season's looks were about being "romantic and pretty" and inspired by the American Ballet Theatre's Dream Ballet. "It's kind of an adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream—so very dreamlike, very whimsical," he said. "The whole collection really has that kind of ballet dancer feeling." Ah ha! We knew we were onto something.

Nasty Gal

It's no secret that we LOVE Nasty Gal here at MTV Style. From off-kilter back-to-school buys to early trend trys the Cali-based online retailer is a definite go-to around these parts. You can imagine, then, how ECSTATIC we were to be invited to the burgeoning brand's New York Fashion Week party - a celebration for both the Nasty Gal debut collection AND the launch of their print magazine Super Nasty! We EVEN got to chat with founder Sophia Amoruso (our collective idol and girl crush) about all the exciting news. #DEAD

Alexander Wang

Alexander Wang is a notorious boundary-pusher in fashion and consumate showman. Remember his last New York Fashion Week presentation? Not only did he have top models like Gisele Bündchen and one-time House of Style host Shalom Harlow closing out the show, but he also showcased a new collection of clothes that dared to take materials to places they don't often go (i.e. leather bubble vests, mesh turtlenecks that extend up to the nose, etc.). You'd think there was no way to top a show as shockingly austere or as entertaining. And then you watch this Spring 2013 showing. WOW.

There’s nothing like summer camp as a kid (I mean, the LiLo Parent Trap remake? Salute Your Shorts? Pick your poison), so we could hardly hold back our giddiness walking through Rachel Antonoff’s Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week presentation. Amid a winding path of astroturf and hedges, models played badminton, caught pretend butterflies, and lounged with picnic baskets in the designer’s collection of striped seersucker skirts, pleated shorts and breezy blouses. Transluscent oxfords and sandals, patterned visors and white, geometric nails completed the looks, all of which could head straight for the country club.

Mara Hoffman

We're BIG fans of Mara Hoffman at MTV Style. The bright colors (even in the gloomier months!), the printed realness, the brain-petting symmetry - it's all totally our steez. And with her bringing in a varied crowd from Queen B Lil Kim, to her BFF Pamela Love, to our bb gurl Holland Roden, her designs are clearly widely appreciated. Naturally, her New York Fashion Week shows are hotly anticipated events for our entire staff. This season, with its luxe cording appliques, flirty cuts, and fresh Polynesian inspiration, was no exception. PLUS, there were Ukelele girls!

Charlotte Ronson

Summer as we know it this year may be slowly slipping away, but I know, come February, after Punxsutawney Phil predicts six more weeks of winter, I'll be shaking my fists, burning my tights, and daydreaming about this Spring 2013 Charlotte Ronson collection. This season for Ronson reads like a New York Fashion Week love letter to breezy beach afternoons and downtown summer nights. And when you shared a womb with a world-class DJ (also Roc-A-Fella Records' first rock act *dusts shoulders off*), your twin hooks you up with the perfect soundtrack to your designs. Samantha Ronson put together a careful playlist of tracks that use a majority breathy, ethereal vocals to channel the breezy summer air vibes of her twin Charlotte's pale color palette and floaty fabrics, but also driving baselines and nostalgic step-clap rhythm sections to complement the nods to classic bad girls (think Pink Ladies).

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
