But Lepore did it yet again at her A/W '14 runway show on Wednesday Feb. 12, creating a bevy of wearable feminine frocks for just about any smart fashionista. was on the scene to view the collection in person.

Always one of the few designers who show looks in striking colors, Lepore worked with a palette of deep reds and purples as well as neutrals. The show started with a simple bordeaux low v-neck dress and showed several office ready looks including a striped purple suit with gray cashmere turtleneck, a cranberry pantsuit with leopard belt, and a simple gray pantsuit.

There were fun skirts (patterned a-line pieces, minis, and more) and tops (sparkly cashmere sweaters, slouchy crop sweaters) and dozens of silky dresses covered in creative colorful patterns (think zigzags, stripes, and dots).

Outerwear standouts included a black wool and leather coat with black fur, a fuchsia large breasted short peacoat, and a charcoal knee length coat with black leather sleeves and lining. Highlights included a coal patterned double breasted skirt suit, a gray wool coat with plush red fur front over skinnies, and a glittery embroidered vest top paired with slouchy gray slacks.

Accessories were also playful with dozens of patterned and black leather belts and brightly colored suede heels (all shoes were paired with ankle socks, of course).
