Alexandre Herchcovitch used his Spring 2013 collection to make a playful tribute to Boy George. While guests sang along to "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?" and "Karma Chameleon," models walked down the runway in clothes that called the Culture Club's signature style to mind. Heart shapes, colorful checks, and lots of plaid covered the oversize shirts and dresses in the collection, while jumpsuits with menswear-inspired lapels pawed at gender identity. The final looks of the collection were classic George: vibrantly colored dresses were paired with big bowler hats jauntily tilted back on the models' heads.
Glitter nail polish is full of fun and fantasy, but it's rarely the sort of look that's instantly synonymous with sophistication. But at Alexandre Herchcovitch's show, manicurist Wanda Ruiz created a sparkling manicure that nailed all three qualities. After applying CND Air Dry top coat to clear nail tips, Ruiz sprinkled a fine white sparkle on top — with a little more down the middle for good measure. The resulting "sugar babe" look was sweet, shimmery, and one of the easiest DIY manicures we've seen at Fashion Week so far.
Fashion Week's penultimate day was a restatement — and in some ways a restructuring — of the trends we've seen all week. New, softer iterations of textured, ratted hair, dramatic eye color, and braiding came down the runway, with a little naturalism to balance things out. It was one of the week's most wearable days, so check out our picks and see which looks you'd be excited to try for yourself.

We just had to put the Alexandre Herchcovitch Spring 2009 show on our front page today, despite all of the requisite holiday excitement and shopping madness. The Herchcovitch collection was one of our favorites from the Spring 2009 season and presents us with an opportunity to shoutout the blossoming of a trend. Patchwork. It's not our favorite look in the print registry but it is indicative of a greater trend that we're wholeheartedly embracing come spring. Refinery 29 coined it, 'The Summer of 89' and you can find more examples of it in the Opening Ceremony Spring 09 look book.
