Ports (1961) of call: Scotland

It was fitting that the collection for Ports 1961 was at night, when there was a chill in the New York air. Creative director Tia Cibani found inspiration in the country of Scotland.

Of course there was plaid, but it was a welcome twist to see it on the runway as a muted cotton bustle skirt paired with a rich blue cable knit sweater.

Tweeds abound, as well as thick cable knits, felt, velvet and cotton. Wood is an accessory in brooches and handbag handles.

SPOTTED: Eliza Dushku, Aisha Tyler, Sophia Bush, Mandy Moore, Rose McGowan, Amy Smart

I'll be talking to Matt & Ramona on 107.9FM from Fashion Week at 6 p.m. on Tuesday. Tune in!
