Red on the Runway

Red was out in full force at the New York fall shows, sometimes as a kicker to a mostly black-and-white ensemble, but more often as the main event. First down the runway at Chado Ralph Rucci was a neon-red Mongolian lamb jacket worn with a matching hooded dress, gloves and over-the-knee boots. Soon to follow were a scarlet-and-black chinchilla coat and a gold-and-carnelian paisley jacket lined with red mink. Michael Kors's all-crimson suit paired a dyed-fox coat with a jersey bodysuit and high-waisted wool-crepe trousers. At Marchesa, the candy apple-colored numbers included a puff-shouldered trench and lacy cocktail dresses. Ralph Lauren favored more romantic, wine-tinted hues, sending out a duo of bordeaux velvet dresses and a burgundy tuxedo jacket (while accenting the black looks with red-heeled shoes). Oscar de la Renta's collection delivered a Park Avenue meets Silk Road feel, showcasing a fuchsia and plum chiffon-trimmed alpaca coat, a bordeaux cashmere-jacquard cardigan atop a laser-cut suede skirt, and plum fox-brimmed hats. It seems that seeing red will have a whole new meaning this fall. Chado Ralph Rucci, 212-819-9066; michaelkors.com; marchesa.com; ralphlaurencollection.com; oscardelarenta.com.
