Vera Wang debuted a very different Fall 2013 collection at New York Fashion Week on Tuesday, with a combination "of texture, pattern, color and proportion that embrace sexy, easy glamour," the designer wrote in her show notes,

Wang truly did play withs shapes for her Fall 2013 collection based on "classical dressmaking" techniques, starting off slow with an exaggerated caplet on a jacket before moving to even more outrageous shapes and silhouettes like giant peplums on vests, dresses and jackets, extreme dolman sleeves, cocoon skirts and bubble sleeves.

"Different scales, different proportions, different colors -- that mixture was for me sort of a new way of looking, in a much simpler way," Wang said backstage after her show.

The palate was heavy on beige and black with pops of purple, shimmery blue and bronze, particularly in floral and fall paisley brocades.
