The Best Of NYFW
New York fashion week really is one of my favorite weeks of the year because it’s feels like I get to experience an exclusive look into the creative mind of some of the best designers and brands. I’m so inspired after watching all the shows and I already start mentally pulling pieces that I know I want to wear the following season. I rounded up some of the best collections I saw for at NYFW this September and broke down what to expect for Spring 2019.
Jonathan Simkhai displayed his new collection via a presentation this year instead of his usual show. For me, I enjoy the presentations as much as the shows because I am able to take my time studying and admiring the pieces. This time Jonathan Simkhai went a bit softer for Spring 2019 and the pieces had a very victorian-goddess feel about them. The collection was made up of sheer white dresses, lace bodice tops and billowy sleeves. It was one of my favourite collections and I could see myself getting married in one of these gorgeous white dresses!
The Coach show always surprises me as it takes the ordinary fashion show from good to great. Walking in and seeing a big metal dinosaur as the centrepiece prop for the venue was all I needed to know how amazing this show was going to be. The theme for the Coach 1941 show was edgy mixed with bohemian influences, which is the perfect combination for Spring. The collection itself had lots of fringe paired with incredible leather pieces and sheer floral dresses. This show kept me on my toes at how effortless the looks were styled and had me longing to head to the desert with these vibes.
Sally LaPointe clothes speak to me in a certain way, I’m obsessed with her simplicity and attention to detail. This season, once again, she did not disappoint. The collection was so clean and classic, while adding bold but subtle details like sequin and bright colours. I think she does a fantastic job at taking a simple, classic piece and revamping it with a modern twist. I’m never one for too much color but I’m slightly obsessed with these all pink looks! Of course the neutral ones are near to my heart – can’t wait to wear these for Spring!
This year, not only was I fortunate to attend the Michael Kors show, but I actually had the opportunity to collaborate with and style some of their fall pieces throughout the week which heightened the collection and the experience altogether. Michael Kors Collection is one of those brands that has done an amazing job of changing with the times and creating beautiful pieces that suit the female body so well. This year, the theme was a Boho-Western inspired style so there were lots of patterns and bright colours which are going to be huge for Spring. The neon looks were so fun but my love went to these four classic looks that were showstoppers on the runway!
