  NEW YORK Over eight days in February, hundreds of designers revealed their collections during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. The trends in the Fall 2013 collections were a mix of recycled fashions from previous seasons and contemporary design visions. Redolent to seasons past, leather items, fur accents, and a nod to 90’s grunge-wear were runway repeats and seen at A lexander W ang , B C B G , and C harlotte R onson among others. However, we saw minor tweaks to each trend. Lea-ther partnered with unexpected silk and satin fabrics, bir-thed a new trend of fabric blocking, fur was doused in colorful dyes, and the 90’s redolence looked less grunge and more grandiose. Outerwear got a refreshing update with the influence of the cape, notable at runway shows of C atherine M alan drino , D erek L am , and others. Sequins commanded our attention on maxi dresses by R achel Z oe , tank tops at Vera W ang , and tops at C zar by C esar G alindo . Geometric lines and shapes appeared to be the pattern trend of the season, appearing in M ara H offman , M illy , and H elmut L ang ’ s collection among numerous others.This upcoming season sees a sharp and contemporary update.
