You will be surprised on how many designers opted to kick start fashion week a day early. Mostly menswear and RTW presentations were held today to start the week long festivities of party hopping, and countless fashion shows. While the snow and rain may steer most fashion folks away, at the Lisa Perry F/W 2014 collection today you would not  have guessed that it was cold and snowy outside. Presented at her studios on Madison Ave, standout guests included Ken Downing and Simon Doonan who watched the presentation as 19 looks went by.

Although I love color and a variety of prints, I can’t help but wonder if this is really a Spring 2015 collection. I know that most designers like to get spring-happy when creating their fall/winter collections, but it would have be great to see some realistic fall/winter clothing. I know that we all want warm weather to come soon, but I have to say-sometimes it’s hard to buy into a collection when the reality is further from the concept. Which can work on exceptional occasions, of course.

I think this collection is fairly gorgeous and eye catching, but for a spring collection.

What say you? Spring or Fall?
