It's not always easy to appreciate an all black collection, but with the snow drifting down outside of the New York fashion week tents it was easy to find visual warmth in Dejchat Sriyoopum's capsule showing, beanies and all.

Designer Kati Stern's Hungarian roots might explain it, but her label Venexiana feels more suited to the catwalks of Europe then it does to the catwalk of New York fashion week. It feels glam, perhaps even at times over-the-top, and this city has so far offered up far more largely subdued offerings. And yet here it is, often shiny, seldom subtle, typically detailed, and giving this week's fall 2011 showings a decidedly European feel.

A mix of the sleek and the sumptuous, Derek Lam's autumn / fall 2011 collection took to the runway of New York fashion week with look after look streaming out onto the catwalk with such frequency that it hosted up to four models at any given time. It's unlikely that most would have noticed, however, with each look clearly capturing the focus of the crowd. Where others have turned to excessive detail to do just that, Lam's next collection is one of subtlety. At times minimalist and at other times classically detailed, Lam opted to to avoid any one aesthetic. Instead, throughout this collection, different looks and feels are tied together by overt quality and an obvious wearability that ranged sumptuous furs to jumpsuits with a sheen.

There is, though, one component of the collection that stood out amongst all else: its free flowing gowns. Streaming down the catwalk it was easy for the models who wore them to do them justice, the hemline of each moving majestically as the gowns were driven on by the inimitable walks of the likes of Karlie Kloss.

The Witchery winter 2011 range is inspired by timeless beauty and individuality. Everything from the military inspired trousers through to knitwear and coats gives off a classic feel. We love the combination of leather pants and heels with a chunky knit. Also watch out for the hip-length pea coat in this range which is great for warmth and to texture a winter ensemble.

Max Azria's fall 2011 catwalk didn't so much begin as it did pound into life, the bass of the catwalk track reverberating in my ear drums in much the same way I can still hear a long night out in the confines of a small European night club long after it has ended. Not subtle, but then most things associated with the Azria surname tend not to be. But such is the cost of becoming best known for defining precisely how sexy a bandage dress can be.

In reality, however, the Max Azria label (designed by husband and wife team Max and Lubov Azria) has been anything but overt of late. Take a look at their last autumn / winter offering: minimalist, delicate, and with flow. And so it was that at New York fashion week, on a catwalk of temporary floorboards walked some of the best models in the city, and draped loosely across their frames was a collection that was precisely the opposite of what springs to mind when you think 'Azria'. What was unveiled is a collection whose hems are modest. A collection whose fabrics are spun in greys, blacks and olives. Detailed yes, layered yes, but overt no.

What, then, did it offer up?

Not much of what you'd expect. In fact, not only was there not a little black dress in sight, there was barely a little dress to speak of. Instead, the Max Azria collection you can expect for the coming season opened with block tailoring, and continued those two elements throughout many of the other pieces. Where it wasn't tailored and it wasn't blocked, it was loose with the collection's tonality applied to odd, un-Azria feeling pieces such as jumpsuits and work overalls.

But there still has to be some flash of skin in order for it to truly be a Max Azria collection. And so the was. Yet instead of coming in a figure hugging shape, the flash of skin came courtesy of thigh high splits applied to skirts cut below the knee, and also courtesy of the slightest use of sheer cloth within the range. That, however, is slight in the sense of repetition given this Azria label closed on a look designed to stick in one's mind: model Jac taking to the catwalk in a sheer maxi dress. But even then the impact was reduced courtesy of the dress being paired with a heavy winter overcoat.
