Ripped Tights, Military Jackets, Cozy Sweaters at Charlotte Ronson

At the Charlotte Ronson runway show on Saturday night, the NY Observer was approached by a couple attempting to buy their tickets. As a result, they've already pronounced Ronson as one of the hottest shows of Fashion Week, and they have a point; our seat neighbors were a 10-year-old girl (child bloggers?still trendy) and a French man who bragged "I only do the Paris shows and don't know why I'm here" to anyone who'd listen, which was really only the 10-year-old.

Ronson's show was deejayed by her sister Samantha Ronson, who was but the first of many small cameos of the event. The youngest Ronson girl, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, was applauded down the runway and followed by Irina Lazareanu. The look was what we'd call prep-school-girl-gone-rebel-by-shopping-at-military-surplus. Maybe it was all the ripped tights. Olive green, charcoal and black dominated, with a few small flashes of muted plaid and golden yellow.

While continuing the emerging trend of wide-leg trousers and tailored coats, Charlotte made sure her entire collection was extremely wearable, with a cozy oversizedness to most of the pieces and a young aesthetic that'll keep her devotees smiling.
