NYFW: Back from the Future

Looks like nobody got the memo about paring down for the recession, because, at first glance at least, this season's New York runway fashions are looking bigger and more bodacious than ever. Despite the looming threat of PETA demonstrations, several young designers dared to show fur for the first time, while longtime PETA target Donna Karan went fur-free. Marc Jacobs did big-shouldered neon '80s looks, It boy Alexander Wang stitched up leather harem pants and bandage everything, and on the ultra-cheap end of things, McQ for Target's pop-up store offered the masses zip-up mesh cardigans, weathered grey denim biker jackets, and neon-patterned bike shorts. On the up side, anyone who lived through the '80s the first time, and thought to keep their clothes, will save a fortune by re-wearing their graffitied Stephen Sprouse items and wasp-waisted leather blazers.
