Luis Antonio might not be new to the fashion seen but he is new to New York Fashion Week. Antonio has been designing in Puerto Rico for the past 20 years but made his New York Fashion Week debut under the tents last Saturday. His spring collection, which he named Maritime, was all about the nautical looks and effortless chic styles. He combined bold colors with bold patterns.

The first look down the runway had me going gaga. Look after look I was just so excited and interested in seeing more. This whole collection had this vacation/resort feel. I loved the abstract prints paired with the stripes. There was a sense of playfulness with in the collection with the use of prints, such as the abstract rope prints. It's hard to say what pieces were my favorites as I loved the jumpsuits and the abstract print gowns...but the long tulle skirt with the white shimmery top totally stole my heart...from the way it flowed and shimmered down the runway...SWOONS.

It's always important for a debut collection to make an impact and I really think this one made a statement. When asked which collections I've seen has been my favorite, this one is on my list.

What did you think of Luis Antonio's debut at New York Fashion Week?
