New York Fashion Week Runway Review: TOME Fall 2013 Collection

The Girl in the Check Scarf reviews the TOME Fall 2013 collection at New York Fashion Week

From the moment I saw the first outfit (a straightforward red gown), I knew TOME Fall 2013 would be something special. TOME launched in 2011, and won the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation award this year, further establishing it as a brand to watch. This collection uses simple-but-precise cuts for a really dramatic, avant-garde effect. The beauty of the collection really lies in its choice of cut and fabric. Who says that you need to have a ton of bright colors and embelishments in order to stand out? These pieces are so well-planned that they make a loud statement just by being minimalistic.

A few pieces really stand out in the collection: an iridescent, floor-length gown and a jacket in shiny gray and blue, respectively. Iridescence was a huge trend for spring, and it looks like it’s following us into fall as well. The collection really hit the trend in terms of hot fall colors; burgundy and gray have been here, there, and everywhere this season. With its column dresses and eye-catching coats, TOME’s collection is incredibly wearable — and I hope to see it in lots of stores come fall.

See some of my favorite outfits from TOME’s Fall 2013 collection in the gallery below. Visit Woman’s Wear Daily (here) for the full collection.
