Now that the fashion wave has made its way to London, I can give you the breakdown on NYFW’s hottest runway looks.
The Sass and Bide collection was described by the designers as « polished confusion, » a perfect description for the mixing and matching of different textures and styles. PS: Mark your calendars–the brand’s flagship will finally be up and ready in November, on Broome St.
Marchesa never ceases to amaze me in the way it captures the princess fairytale look to perfection. Floral, lace and lingerie vibes were beautifully intertwined to craft a romantic and bohemian collection.
Marc Jacobs played more on the wild side of life than the clean, minimalist looks that have been conquering the runways. The collection was dark and Victorian with hues like maroon, dark greens, blacks and browns taking over the scene.
Reed Krakoff flaunted clean and minimalist looks–sheer nudes and asymmetrical hemlines created the ultimate looks of soft femininity.
Calvin Klein wooed us with his collection that broke from the norm of his typical looks. Francisco Costa labeled the collection as « elevated deconstruction, » in which we naturally concur and salute.
Ralph Lauren had some school-girl looks going, as well as a beautiful red cape dress and other stunning gowns.
Proenza Schouler featured some cutouts in all the right places and a color palette that makes the dresses flow and shine beautifully.
Dion Lee definitely left us with a good impression during his first appearance at NYFW–strong cutouts, futuristic 3D patterns and innovative textiles made for a great show.
Sophie Theallet hit the runways with « sensuality and seduction » in mind for her Spring collection, and with clingy sheer outfits, sexiness was definitely in the air.
Philosophy had a great casual-cool look going. Crisp white attire was definitely a highlight and the easy-to-wear pieces have already made their way into my vacation suitcase…
