Skirts swing long and gentle on the runways in New York. Well over the knees and in some cases even covering the ankles. Fluid layers, with tulle, trimmed slits and colourful ribbons. It’s dressed up elegance all over the place, reminiscent in most cases yet with lots of refreshing personal twists.

BCBG lowers the waist, where Rodarte contours. Hilfiger goes liquid, where Marc Jacobs sculptures in modern tech materials. Nothing boring about long skirts, as long as they are embellished with elaborate crafted details, layered in mixed translucence or just made in plain yet lovely materials.
