I knew when I glanced at the run of show titled "Crystalarium" the Vena Cava show was going to sparkle. That it did, in the forms of holographic sequins and metallic fringe. But a few jackets also sparkled for me. As hinted, the Fall offerings were inspired by a trip to the American Museum of Natural History's Hall of Gems and Minerals.Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai conjured up a brilliant mix of a silver foil print rayon cardigan (pictured), motorcycle jackets (taupe leather pictured), and wool cropped jackets. The black asymmetrical wool blazer was unique amongst a sea of Fall blazers — P.S. they're not going anywhere — and atop a hypnotizing rainbow sequin skirt it was galactic chic. Worn over VC's girlie-but-not-too dresses and tame ruffles, these jackets beckoned me. This avid jacket collector will be waiting for these standouts come Fall.
