So NYFW was the circus it usually is, with a great mix of designers and lots of stuff happening both on and off the catwalks. For SS14, there were a lot of designers doing the same thing, which I find incredibly boring. This season, they decided to all simultaneously do black&white. Since I feel this combo is kinda unrefined and passe, I skipped the designers that went for that look (which were basically 13 per dozen). There were of course plenty of other designers with interesting use of colors, and here's a roundup of my favorites.
DELPOZO - My absolute favorite from NYFW. Delpozo are into their second season of rejuvenating the brand, and I'm in love. They're playing with interesting silhouettes, elegant color combos and still keeping it feminine and wearable.

Kate Spade - Kind of a high street brand, but I've always loved her use of color. It's a fresh combo of classic with a twist and a dash of humor. The color palette was interesting and refined. Very wearable, and potential future wardrobe classics.
Lulu Frost - I'm a sucker for Lulu Frost's jewelery, and Neon Baroque for SS14 did not disappoint. The beyond fabulous tulle skirts and tops were by Mary Kahle (I want it all!!)
Mara Hoffman - Hippie luxe, awesome prints and fresh colors. So many fun pieces, and such a strong personality throughout the whole collection. Very refreshing to se a designer trying to make it-pieces, but rather a strong and individual collection.
Monique Lhuillier - Love, love, loved this dress! Fantastic hot color combo, with lots of potential to play and have fun with accessories.
Ostwald Helgason - I did notice a lot of mixing patterns on a general basis, but there was something fun and refreshing with this look. Kind of geeky cool.
Tanya Taylor - Stripes are always hot, and I really loved how Tanya played with colors and patterns in this look. Super elegant and chic.
Trina Turk - I love Trina Turk, much because of her fun and relaxed personality. This long caftan is just begging to be a part of my wardrobe! :D
Naeem Khan - I have a feeling about this cut and shape, and I think we'll be seeing more of it. Not only for dressing up, but also for more relaxed settings AND work.
Oscar de la Renta - He always makes pretty dresses, but this green one? Out of this world!! Absolutely loving the candy colors. :)
Ralph Lauren - Ralph usually has a very subdued and classical (read: boring) color scheme, but this season he went to town! Some of the dresses didn't really do it for me shape wise, but this blue dream is a killer! Pretty spectacular. I love how the classical and more traditional brands are being more colorful for SS14!
Anyways, that's my roundup. Which ones were your favorites?
