· Michael Kors went on another safari, this one not as luxe as last spring.
· Nanette Lepore turned out to be the week's brightest (read: retina-burning) show.
· Jeremy Scott's light washed denim, pink chaps and assless skirts make us cringe.
· Phillip Lim created multi-function pieces with lightweight, colorful fabrics.
· Milly shifted some of its famous prints into colorblocking, but the real showstoppers were the coats.

· Reed Krakoff's pieces had a cellophane finish, with very conservative cuts and draping.
· Anna Sui channeled the 40's, the 70's, and the era of marabou stoles.
· Wayne featured lots of drapey black and white, with occasional pops of blue.
· Proenza Schouler took inspiration from Googie architecture and the 50's for a truly unique collection.
· Ralph Lauren returned to the glory of The Great Gatsby.
· Calvin Klein showed very romantic, very minimal dresses and suits—with not a crazy print in sight.
· Made in Africa had bright prints and amazing original accessories in the name of clean water.
· Marc Jacobs presented drop waist silhouettes in a variety of materials, including cellophane and silicone.
