It’s been a busy week for many in New York City. With Fashion week drawing to a close we thought it would be a perfect time to re-cap on some of the highlights of this season’s shows. From Alexander Wang to Marc Jacobs closing show there was something for everyone to enjoy, and definitely some interesting runways to say the least.
If you’re a fan of urban, edgy pieces then this seasons show will be right up your street. With tweedy mini skirts, skirt suits with zips, buckles, slip dresses and the classic oversized hoops with a good old beanie,Wang’s show definitely brought a sense of nostalgia to many with his throwback garments.
You could say this collection was some what like ’70s skiwear, are we really complaining thought? With PVC floor length coats, velour tracksuits and bomber jackets, quirky stripes and patterns, and an incredibly retro colour palette Lacoste’s creative director Felipe Oliveira Baptista definitely demonstrated his talents this season.
Michael Kors did lady-like chic right this season, think Clueles, kind of. Feathered denim, mini skirt suits, oversized collars and “I want this now” bags, the show went down a treat. Kors was one of many designers who trialled the “see now, buy now” trend this season, allowing viewers to purchase pieces they spotted on the runway, literally straight away, so you’re not waiting months to be the most stylish around. What a great idea!
This season Calvin Klein collection amazed viewers with a polished opening and finale section of masculine tailoring, with pinstripes galore, flared trousers, midi dresses, and a cool toned colour palette. To the viewers shock, all the fur featured within the show was faux which is something we don’t always see on the runway. Round of applause for that!
This week’s has definitely ended on a high with the closing show from Marc Jacobs. You could say it was a surprise to see, Lady Gaga walking the runway this season, along with Kendall Jennerit really was the perfect team. The show itself was… interesting to say the least, but as always Jacobs pulled it off. The immaculate white backdrop allowed there to be no drama other than the models entering the floor in their enormous plat-form heels, Victorian skirts embroidered with sequins, others lazer cut, feathers on denim jackets, bird cages were even featured within the embroidery. The gothic hair and makeup finished the looked off perfectly!
Finally…can we just talk about the street style spotted over the past week. Photographer for Vogue, Phil Oh, manages to somehow capture street style in the best and natural way possible. The rush of fashion week itself is captured in each image, however every photo is incredibly different. You can get a insight into people’s personal styles and is great for inspiration!
