Lucky Magazine Reviews Organic by John Patrick for 2011 New York Fashion Week

Organic by John Patrick's Fall Presentation

We're thrilled to present our favorite Lucky story here on Fab!

My fashion week started off with a (freezing) bang with the Organic by John Patrick presentation. I walked in and immediately noticed the models rocking what seemed to be an homage to Laura Ingalls' character on Little House on the Prairie in their long, floral-printed chiffon dresses — so Kristen McMenamy early '90s grunge. The rest of the looks had a very laid-back vibe with a hint of prep school — seriously similar to the staffer style here at Lucky.

There were crisp oxfords, buttoned "librarian style" (i.e., all the way up), under heavy, cropped sweaters, high-waisted shorts and textured knit thigh-high tights. The footwear was all provided by Hunter, and what a departure from the rubber boots that I have seen all too much of this wet winter. There were cropped ankle booties with a modest heel and tall lace-up boots that were very wellie-meets-Victoriana and, dare I say, sexy enough to be worn even on a sunny day. Overall, the collection was wearable, stylish and eco-friendly. What's not to love?
