BLACK? IT'S SO . . . DONE

Times Staff Writer

One of the most amusing things about going to Fashion Week is seeing runway hangers-on pushing the season -- Anna Wintour wearing the green nymph-print skirt from Prada's spring collection with a fur-trimmed coat, another Vogue editor wearing wedge sandals with gray wool tights.

Well, color is undeniably the most important trend for spring, so it was no surprise that the typically all black-clad fashion crowd turned it on in February, with pops of pink, blue and green all over the front rows at Bryant Park and beyond.

Spring's hottest hue, yellow, was everywhere -- from lemon drop to loud neon, the color came through like rays of light on a scarf and the beads of a necklace. Some women embraced spring's artsy trend, sporting multicolored brush stroke dresses and mosaic print tops by Marni and Thakoon.

Even accessories were bold and bright. One woman wore a silk scarf in a Balenciaga floral print peeking out from the neckline of her heavy coat. Another left her "it" bag at home in favor of a multicolored '80s patchwork leather bag with a door-knocker closure. And when it was cloudy and rainy -- which it was practically the whole week -- you could count on plenty of bright patterned rain boots to keep spirits shining.
