New York Fashion Week is finally upon us and so far has not disappointed! For the Fall 2015 shows, designers are setting trends showcasing a variety of exciting designs that are hard not to fall in love with.
So far we have seen influx of luxe leather and quirky furs, along-side bright hues of oranges and burnt tones teamed with a variety of metallic tones, just to name a few trends! Here are our NY Fashion Week highlights so far:
Creative Director Marissa Webb's direction for Banana Republic definitely impressed us as the label showcased its first stationary presentation as part of the official NY Fashion Week show schedule.
The collection consisted of beautiful layered pieces in a variety of autumnal tones such as dusty grey, deep blue, khaki green and burgundy, that were all styled and layered up perfectly.
Our next highlight of NY Fashion Week so far has to be Victoria Beckham's AW15 collection - both wearable and stunning with an emphasis on winter textures and layered styles.
The collection consisted of a subtle and contrasting colour palette of deep navy's, cream, olive green and mustard yellow, and played with oversized silhouettes, teddy bear style coats, intricate tweed and woollen textures. The standout pieces were the gorgeously textured and shaped coats and high-necked sleeveless tops, which are fast becoming a top trend for 2015!
Alexander Wang’s ready to wear collections are normally colourful presentations of urban street wear, but have now been transformed into what the fashionistas have been craving - an almost-entirely black collection.
There was a rock metal aesthetic teamed with a cool Rihanna style theme to the whole collection. With severe hems, oversized fits and heavy draping of materials, you would expect the collection to be slightly odd and unappealing, but Alexander Wang proved that he can make any weird and wonderful combination into a amazing and exciting collection. A pleasant surprise!
Prada’s star-studded get-together has been a definite highlight for NY Fashion Week so far for its new ‘iconoclasts’ installation.
This latest installation in a long-running stream of exhibitions that were inspired by an avant-garde style after-party for the high-end, with a little party and a lot of glamour incorporated. The Oscar-nominated and extremely talented costume designer Michael Wilkinson and his partner Tim Martin both composed and directed the impressive installation.
Known for playful and fun accessories, the Kate Spade AW15 collection certainly did not disappoint and stood out to us a top runner. Designer Deborah Lloyd described the inspiration of the collection as "magical world of fairy tales", which featured gorgeous and unique chocolate box clutches, studded and stone encrusted shoes, and plenty of brightly coloured faux fur with the odd faux studded animal.
