N.Y. Fashion Week Update: Anne Klein is A-Okay!

Show receives standing ovation from fussy editors

Style snobs can eat their Birkins. One show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York that received a standing ovation from fussy fashion editors was the presentation of fall looks for Anne Klein. Yes, Anne Klein. The label better identified with resume-toting college grads than fashion forward females has the talented designer Isabel Toledo at its helm.

The results seen on the catwalk were smart, chic and eminently wearable. Separates were key, with a bias for wide legged pants and chic knits. A cherry red skirt and jacket set with dramatic lapels brought venerable style icon Kate Hepburn to mind. The shimmery evening dress in midnight blue would draw applause on any red carpet.

In a world in which an “it” purse costs $1,600 and fashion designers cut with a size 2 in mind, Anne Klein is our new heroine. Get thee to a mall.
