Fashion Week Recap: Day 5

Tough biker-inspired looks at Phillip Lim, brocade dresses at Zac Posen and "healthy" cookies from Karlie Kloss and Momofuku Milk Bar.

With just two days (okay, three including the Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren shows on Thursday) remaining, beleaguered Fashion Week attendees were energized by 3.1 Phillip Lim's "biker" inspired collection, a spectacularly luxe presentation by The Row (staged in an Upper East Side townhouse), and—perhaps best of all—news of Karlie Kloss' healthy "Perfect 10" cookies for Momofuku Milk Bar.

The fashion industry loves a chic new treat—as evidenced by Reed Krakoff's jet black macarons for Laduree. Tomorrow, Momofuku baker Christina Tosi is teaming up with supermodel Karlie Kloss to pass out free gluten-free "Perfect 10 Kookies." [Fashionista]

The Olsen twins staged their most elabroate presentation ever for their shared label, The Row, by renting an empty Upper East Side townhouse and filling it with art objects and furniture. []

For Fall 2013, fashion darling Wes Gordon found inspiration in a Sargeant Pepper-themed "harem," complete with punchy printed gowns and goat hair accents. []

At an exclusive preview for its forthcoming "Punk: Chaos to Couture" exhibit, the Costume Institute showed edgy looks by rock n' roll royalty Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and Rodarte with a classic '70s punk soundtrack playing on loop. [Stylecaster]

Phillip Lim took inspiration from "biker girlfriends" with a collection that emphasized tough outerwear, knee-high leather boots and itty bitty mini skirts. []
