It’s the most wonderful time of the year – for fashionistas, that is! New York Fashion Week kicks off the fall fashion season with upcoming fashion weeks around the world to follow next. We’re salivating just thinking about all the couture we’ve taken in during the past week fresh from the runways of the Big Apple and are ready to share the top trends of NYFW with you. Fall and spring fashion, let’s get started!
A Little Sparkle
Or more like, a lot of sparkle! One of our favourite shows thus far has been Oscar De La Renta. The couture giant dazzled once again with an absolutely stunning collection featuring enough razzle dazzle to keep up shining bright like a diamond all year long. From glittered dress pants and crop tops to cardigans and long skirts, and all in nudes and metallics, we loved all the elegantly shimmery looks.
Shoulders everywhere, rejoice! You’ve been set free – at least, according to NYFW. From casually styled falling-off-one-shoulder jackets and shirts to fully bare-shouldered gowns, we’re definitely noting that off-the-shoulder is here to stay. Everyone from Brock Collection, Self- Portrait and Hellessy rocked the look.
ProenzaSchouler has been one of our favourite collections so far with its sophisticated yet whimsical prints and patterns. We loved the bold colours and structured dresses for spring and absolutely need the glitter black and blue skirt for nights out on the town. We also loved the head-to-toe patterned ensembles strutting down the runway at Nicholas K. Patterns on patterns on patterns is definitely the slogan of the moment.
Whoever said one shouldn’t wear white post-summer clearly didn’t attend the shows. There were so many gloriously fresh takes on the shade that we can’t wait to rock an all-white ensemble this season. From newcomer Rosie Assoulin’s beautifully feminine white maxis to Phillip Lim’s florally adorned delicate yet structured frocks to Jonathan Simkhai’s ethereal dresses, it was all about a bright white future.
Sweater weather is officially here and we’re smiling all the way to our closets. Gorgeously luxe and seriously warm sweaters made their way into hearts via the runways and we can’t wait to bring them to the streets. Prabal Gurung had exquisite knits over midi skirts while Monse had draped varsity sweaters and Tommy Hilfiger wowed with their signature Americana motif in cosy sweater form. Easily the most wearable trend, we’ll be donning sweaters with everything from thigh-highs to jeans, swanky hats to Tom Ford sunglasses.
