Some of my favorite looks so far from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Spring 2014

The spring season will be featuring an inevitable amount of sportswear and convenient clothing. Surprisingly, it's not exactly the most colorful season, but there are exceptional vivid palettes like Coral, Fuchsia, Cobalt Blue and Yellow in juxtaposition to the harsh black and white tones presented on the runway. The themes were stripes, light pastels, vivid hues...and minimalism....Joy. Obviously prints do their justice in making an appearance in most collections from world-wide designers as well as laser cuts and subtle details or crochet and weaving. I don't want to be a grump, but once again its the same thing all over again. I appreciate fashion and I'm always looking forward to the newest looks, but it really get tiresome to see the repetition of designs that could have maybe a little more appeal. I guess I can't be complaining, because there are designers who sticky by their creative integrity and do as they please most of the time. It's all a balance between marketability, artistic expression and trend. It's not rocket science, it's just that every one seems to give the impression that collectively all of these shows are making a big deal. Luckily, there have been multiple looks that have caught my attention from the various spring collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
Let's have a look shall we?

10 Crosby Derek Lam: The piping lines are quite animated. Looks very comfortable.

Alexander Wang: Typical Half Shirt Too Cool to Function Look.

Victoria Beckham: Clean and quite fun. She really stepped up her design aesthetics this year.

Carolina Herrera: Printed sun dress that could only look good with specific skin tones.

Carolina Herrera: If you look closely, you'll see the immense detail put in on the sheer fabric.

Carolina Herrera: Very simple silhouette, bit the pattern is quite eye-catching.

Christian Siriano: The cape should stay, the splatter of the florals on the dress should be less obvious.

Crosby Derek Lam: I love this print, the electric yellow hues really emphasize the subtle colors of grey and black.

Crosby Derek Lam: Modern day high waist pant turned into an overall.

Derek Lam: I love the detail of the thin loose weaving on the bottom.

Derek Lam: Maybe this look is a little too much, but maybe that's because the shoes don't do this look any justice.

Helmet Lang: I'm loving the layout of the squares and sheer midriff.

Kate Spade: Finally some color!

Zac Posen: Best look on the runway.

Prabal Gurung: Those pants look delicious, I don't care if it's a little Miami Vice. I live for this look.

Prabal Gurung: I really don't think that the top and bottom clash with one another. It's so over done, that's the point.

Red Valentino: The print is actually quite whimsical. It isn't vulgar or weird. And not many accessories are needed to complete this look.

Threeasfour: The laser-cut aesthetic here is quite impressive, the leggings scare me a little, but the simple proportion of shapes don't make this look as intimidating as it might have turned out.

These are my choices for now. To be honest, I'm more excited about the previews for fall after seeing most of the collections...
