Sketches from the world's top designers show a movement for spring 2014 collections toward island prints, airy fabrics and flowy silhouettes - a stark change from the darker hues and overarching Russian themes found in the fall collections shown in February. When models hit the New York runways beginning Sept. 5 for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, many will wear garments with decidedly tropical influences. The islands inspired Annapolis native and "Project Runway" alum Christian Siriano's collection, for example.

Whoever coined the phrase "this is a man's world" clearly never visited Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Here, women and their wears, reign supreme. There are exceptions though. Award-winning American designer, Joseph Abboud, has been a fixture in men's fashion for decades. He's dressed everyone from Wynton Marsalis to baseball great Nomar Garciaparra. He'll lead off the festivities today with a show at New York Public Library. I'm excited. He knows what looks good on a guy. Lucky for you Baltimore readers, you can find his creations at J.S. Edwards in Pikesville.

WASHINGTON - DaimlerChrysler AG said yesterday that the Justice Department is conducting a criminal investigation into allegations the company's Mercedes-Benz subsidiaries took part in a price-fixing scheme among New York-area dealers. The No. 5 carmaker said in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that the case is connected to a 1999 proposed class action lawsuit against two Mercedes-Benz units, Mercedes-Benz USA LLC and Mercedes-Benz Manhattan Inc.

In a year where spring collections were dominated by the usual suspects - trends such as pastels, animal patterns and ethnic prints - superior silhouettes, fine fabrics and choice of color helped designers stand out from the masses. Top designers such as Diane von Furstenberg, Christian Siriano, Tracy Reese, Vera Wang and Badgley Mischka focused on finishing touches as opposed to the flash. As a result, collections appeared to be cleaner and more polished than in some years, giving them a timeless appeal.

It's the dead of winter, which means that while the rest of us get ready for spring, high fashion is already showing us fall. Photos from recent shows in Europe left us mostly breathless - except for a disaster from Chanel. From the monochromatic patterns by Marc Jacobs, and floral frocks of Prada, to the iridescent garments from Alberta Ferretti, Bottega Veneta and Louis Vuitton, designers ran the gamut of colors, textures and shapes. Expect nothing less in New York City this week for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, which runs Feb. 7 through 14. September's spring shows brought us collections filled with airy fabrics, metallic-dipped materials, pants and flared skirts.
