New York Fashion Week show reviews for fall/winter 2017 collections

Dressy was best: a cropped fisherman sweater over a bronze distressed slither, a dramatic lace back number and a swishy floral lace applique slip dress. And lack of optimism aside, there was a joyful moment when Smith dashed at full speed down the runway with cutie-pie kids Sofia and William in tow. (Anne Bratskeir)

Helmed by Jane Siskin, the label has made a big splash this past year at stores like Bergdorf Goodman, Saks, Neiman Marcus and Intermix. And no wonder: The line is alive for fall with a mix of sweet flutter dresses in burnout velvet, colorfully embroidered jackets and eye-catchers like a rum brocade “ember coat” with wide fur cuffs.

The name — that’s “five to seven” in English (think haute happy hour) — refers to the early evening hours in a chic fashionista’s life when the sun is setting and the night is full of potential. It’s the perfect time to slip into the flouncy velvet dress with embroidered cardigan falling casually off one shoulder, or the brushed terry “I love everyone” sweatshirt (a bold statement in these divisive times) and fox coat.

Serving up a selection nibbles from Le Coucou’s kitchen — caviar, veal, lobster — was a nice reminder that the brand can take you from brunch to happy hour and beyond. It’s like a trip to Paris, sans jet lag. (Joseph V. Amodio)
