Mikio Sakabe went both futuristic and retro this season. "The concept is coming from new fabrics combined with a classical elegance," Sakabe explained a couple weeks before his show. Still, there's a seasonality issue as well. After a sweltering summer like the one we just had, tweedy duds could be a tough sell. The label, designed by Mikio Sakabe and Shueh Jen-Fang, started things out with some simple patchwork dresses with both a Mod sensibility, Chinoise collars and some with sequined trim. Then, the duo used a cellophane weave fabric and worked into a series of jackets and skirts. The cropped blond wigs added to the 'Lost In Space' on the way to Chanel vibe.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
