A big theme I keep seeing in all the collections during fashion week is the new vibrancy of the color purple. It's no longer for that hot little man Prince, nor just for the name of Oprah's new Broadway show. Purple this Fall is now playful, softer, edgier and a lot more fun. This Nanette Lepore dress above is my top favorite. (You can also check out Nanette's Blog on Glam!)
Feminine elegance in purple lavender with lace from Monique Lhuillier.
I love Vivenne Tam and how her collection always infuses Asian design. This chengsam is perfect for a night on the town.
Betsy Johnson had more demure and sophisticated but always fun looking pieces in her collection including this purple tie front coat. I love the pairing with these cute red shoes.
Derek Lam pairs in a romantic puffed sleeved purple top with strong gold trimmed black pants.
Of course Anna Sui is just being herself and using her brand color. Her collection was amazingly vibrant in bold colors and prints. I like the casual look of this dress.
Oscar de la Renta's cute Audrey style dress.
Finally, Carolina Herrera glams up silky purple with fur trimmed sleeves.
