Musette's Fashion Week Fun, Installment One.

Musette follows all that is hip & happening at New York Fashion Week.

'Oh Boy!'

The blazers come boxy and the shirts, buttoned up. A boyish charm is in the air and we are soaking it up. Think prep school meets country club, boy meets girl, 90's meets now.

Karen Walker's cropped khakis prove to be the must-have pant of the season, and they can't get any cuter when paired with a smart shirt and a crisp coat.

Kirsten Dunst did a stellar job of modeling the Boy by Band of Outsiders' Spring collection. The result was old school office chic - reminiscent of a time when mobile phones came with battery packs, and shoulder pads were essential.

Rag & Bone infused a little rockabilly to their range, hitting us with the odd set of suspenders and collared shirts done up to the neck. Here, tweed is terrific, and comfort is not sacrificed in the name of a matching suit.

Alexander Wang injected some bright bursts of colour to this Spring season. His fun, cool, and effortless looks left us with the realisation that you can hit up the beach club straight after work.

*Stay tuned for more, more, more on this very special sort of week!
