Bodkin, Fall 2011 PresentationWe're huge fans of Bodkin at hearty, and in her first fashion week presentation, Bodkin designer Eviana Hartman presented a clean wearable collection. We like! Hartman also presented Bodkin sweaters for the first time, cable knits and cashmeres, one of which made our favorite looks. Subdued army greens and oatmeals, making not so subdued appearances, did it for us. The over-sized winter white jacket was also a favorite.

Karen Walker Fall 2011 Fashion ShowMaybe one of our favorites of the favorites, for her Fall 2011 collection, Karen Walker, looked to the Northern-soul scene of the 70s for inspiration. Working class kids would put on their Sunday's Best and hit Northern Britain's clubs to spend the weekend dancing away. Come Monday they were back at their jobs working hard labor. Floral-print made a big appearance in this collection and big impact on us, along with loose sweaters and a print used on a flowing dress and a pair of trousers, that features souvenir patches that the kids used to collection.

Showing all three lines that fall under the Band of Outsiders brand--Band (menswear), Boy (menswear-inspired womenswear) and Girl (a more feminine womenswear line)--Scott Sternberg presented an eclectic offering at his fall '11 show.

Rodarte Fall 2011 Fashion ShowInfluenced by the 1978 film Days of Heaven and the American Plains, Rodarte presented a neutral palette with prairie references for their fall '11 collection.
