Voluminous skirts, giant sweaters, and exaggerated collars came together in Nina Skarra’s stunning “Frosted Circus” collection. Beautifully tailored wool coats appeared in rich colors like plum and cobalt, creating a lovely contrast with various ivory blouses and skirts. Several skirts, dresses, and an eye-catching red trench coat included a flared peplum or trumpet shape.


There were a few dresses with a pleated detail along the front, creating the most beautiful shape in a very simple but unusual form. Chiffon and silk created soft, romantic texture in blouses, skirts, and pleated gowns. A few chunky knitted sweaters embraced the more wearable looks of the season, with oversized sleeves and lots of texture giving the sweaters a new feel.


Romantic buns were worn alongside big, almost triangular, bobs, and Edward Cruz for Make Up Forever created possibly one of my favorite make up looks of the season. Models were in bright red lips paired with a dash of turquoise under the eyes - a touch of glitter and long, fluttery lashes kept the blue/red combo from being gauche.


I really loved how the makeup and hair kept with the “Frosted Cirucs” theme without being over-the-top or drawing attention from the clothes themselves. Nina Skarra’s morning presentation, held at the Lincoln Center, perfectly matched smart tailoring with mimosas for a very memorable display.
