NYFW Highlights

As New York Fashion week has come to an end, we thought it was only fair to recap on our favorite shows from the past week. Plus, what better way to prepare ourselves for the highly anticipated London Fashion week than this. So here are our most loved collections for s/s17.

Victoria Beckham

Laid back, deconstructed silhouettes and longer lengths were the main features of Victoria Beckhams S/S17 collection. Tailored aspects were still as important yet had a much softer approach. Free spirited but still with a luxurious feel. White and neutral colours were favored yet bold pops of mint, orange and purple were injected into pieces. Femininity remained key with floral patterning, pleats, lace and velvet. 

 

Alexander Wang

Detail was key with cut out elements frequent throughout along with a contrast of tailored and slouched pieces. Wang’s collection started of light and then shifted to a darker colour scheme with a focus on neon colours. Bralettes were very popular and were layered with a variety of jackets. A Nineties/surf influence was prevalent throughout which created an edgy, yet laid back collection.

 

Prabal Gurung

A feminine collection that is all about empowerment and sexiness. Modern feminism, in the words of Prabal. Flowing longer lengths were frequently used with added splits for more fluidity, along with varied hems. Soft pastel coloured knitwear and cashmere were draped on models, offering us a much more covered up collection for the spring/summer season.

Coach

 Rebel Inspired with a strong rock, western and 70’s influence. Oversized jackets were contrasted with feminine sheer lace, ruffled midi dresses. Dark floral patterns were also present aswell as heavy punk boots and creepers. It is definitely a collaboration of two completely different worlds packed with a lot of attitude.

 

Vera Wang

Minimalism and monochrome are the two key focuses in Wangs collection. Traditional tailored shapes were experimented with by using layers of fabrics. Short peplum silhouettes were another main element aswell as longer maxi length skirts, with sheer fabrics. Zip front jackets were popular along with more feminine statement pieces, focusing on heavy embellishment.
