Bill Blass and Marc Jacobs among clothing labels inspired by bygone eras at Fashion Week

There is a bit of a vintage vibe at New York Fashion Week, with many designers mining bygone eras as inspiration for their new fall collections. The outfits are distinctly feminine, although there are many menswear touches. The brown, moss and gray backdrop is made richer with plum, berry and blue.

Suze Yalof Schwartz, Glamour's fashion editor at large, was keeping an eye out Tuesday for tulle overlays over printed fabrics and oversized embellishments. "I call them rocks. They're heavy, chunky and very cool looking," she said.

Previews for stylists, editors and retail buyers continue through Friday, with heavy hitters Michael Kors, Vera Wang, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren still to weigh in. Tommy Hilfiger also returns to the schedule Friday after taking a several-seasons hiatus, reports AP.
