Diverse designs and textures made their way down the SyleWeek runway Thursday night, with collections from Susan Troy, Tatiana Cueva and MEN.

Susan Troy demonstrated a strategic use of fabric and color for a ready-to-wear (as in: Where can I buy it, like, today?) collection for the everyday woman. The mauve sweater and dip-dyed tights paired with a versatile eternity scarf would be great for a chilly spring or fall day.

Her more polished looks, including a red cocktail dress with a rose-like pattern on the chest and a wistful floral printed dress, were simply stunning. Needless to say, we loved Susan Troy and look forward to seeing more from her.

Tatiana Cueva sent more complex sillhouettes down the runway, all of which would look exceptional on the right woman -- namely, a petite fashionista or leggy runway model. Her gold and black gowns were effortlessly chic, fusing feminine cuts with edgy fabrics.

Last to head down the runway was MEN, a collection by Brooklyn friends Masha Davydova, Emily Shaw and Natalia Burakowska. The first few looks resembled 1960s luxury sleepwear, made complete with rolled-down nude stockings and messy bedroom hair. The silk, velvet and fringe felt nostalgic, and it would have been a treat to see an entire streetwear collection inspired by the boudoir. But instead the collection took a stark turn, focusing more on the whimsy and dropping any ready-to-wear quality. Look close at the center design and find plastic babies dangling from a normally workplace-ready tweed skirt. Perhaps a statement on the complications of career and family life for the 1960s woman? I don't know. But it certainly was unexpected.
