New York Fashion Week Trends Day 1: Oxblood
Today marks the second official day of New York’s Fall 2013 Season of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and we were pretty excited to catch up on the collections that kicked off the shows. There are always trends that dominate the runways and we definitely keep a keen eye out to ensure we’re on top of it all but this little craze couldn’t be missed if we tried…especially since this is now it’s second season dominating the catwalk – oh, Oxblood, how we love you so. The deep red hue basically took over the magazine pages just a few months ago, we couldn’t get away from shades of wine, burgundy, maroon and the like – bags, shoes, jewels, furs, leathers – everywhere we turned. Well it appears this baby is still going strong and although the name makes us cringe (Lucky Magazine really nailed it with their “19 Euphemisms for Oxblood“), we have to admit, we’re pretty into you. Especially with BCBG’s laser-cut leather and Yigal’s head-to-toe cape. The unanimous vote on NYFW Trend Takeaway Part 1: Oxblood has our hearts beating harder for sure.
