I know I've been quiet for the past few days, but I've been wading through photos from the New York shows. Fashion Week has come to an end (at least in NYC), and the one message coming through loud and clear is that disco's back, baby!
Fall may be all about the refined lady of the '50s, but spring 2011 is hearkening back to the languid glamor of the '70s. Think fluid wide-leg jumpsuits, high-waisted trousers and billowy tie-neck blouses, with some hot pants and gold lamé thrown in for good measure.
Marc Jacobs was, no doubt, the leader of the pack when it came to harnessing '70s inspiration with his flowy pant suits and striped knits. And the spot-on styling (frizzed out hair, matte orange lips, and dark, glossy eyes by François Nars) didn't hurt either.

Others who took on the disco era this past week were Naeem Khan with his embellished caftans...
and designers like Bagdley Mischka, Derek Lam and Tracy Reese who took a crafty spin on the era with a whole lot of denim and macrame.
So which do you prefer - this fall's '50s refinement or next spring's groovy glamor?
