Top Looks From New York Fashion Week

The fifth day of spring 2013 Fashion Week made it abundantly clear that the name of the game for this season is tricky transparency: sheer and semi-sheer fabrics layered and overlaid to clever and beautiful effect. The standout collections contained some names that we’ve long expected—Carolina Herrera, Donna Karan—and a couple of younger but similarly brilliant designers, Chris Benz and Wes Gordon.
 
At Donna Karan, we saw the classic understatement and quiet sensibility we’ve come to expect, and Herrera similarly delivered an astonishingly elegant and gorgeous collection. Both were notable for the masterful way they handled whisper-thin silks and chiffons, creating garments as winsome as they were gossamer.
 
The pieces at Chris Benz and Wes Gordon were more substantial, though no less interested in the interplay of textures. The Benz collection showcased multiple layers of sheer fabric, along with crochet, all forced together in a messy, exuberant harmony. Wes Gordon, on the other hand, chose to take the transparency theme and use it to showcase the brilliance of his drapery.
 
All four shows were undeniably stunning, but which of the top looks are you currently coveting most?
