The Shows: Highlights of NYFW
Watching what came down the runway at NYFW is always an exciting time, sitting there in anticipation wondering what designers have in store for us for the following Fall/Winter season gives you this first date kind of feeling. Although this season had some disappointing collections in my opinion, there were definitely some highlights, scroll below to find out who made the cut.
One of the most wearable collections, with leather jumpsuits, minty hues and layered neutrals. They were sophisticated looks with the perfect amount of edge. I’m always a fan of Sally’s high waisted trousers, her looks create that perfect balance of feminine and sexy silhouettes.
This was my last show of NYFW and by far the most fun! Inspired by his days at Studio 54, Michael Kors designed looks that made you want to move and dance! Oversized boas, sparkly dresses and dramatic coats filled the run way. For the finale, a curtain dropped and out came Barry Manilow singing Copacabana while all the models danced around in their disco inspired outfits!
Coach changed it's venue this season and I thought it was the best decision! This season's show was a much more intimate setting and it allowed the clothes to really shine. The amount of amazing coats that came down that runway are still lingering in my dreams. From oversized shearling coats to leather fringed ones, they were all show stoppers and I loved how they were paired with feminine dresses underneath.
Zimmermann is an all time favorite and they continue to take my breath away with every collection that walks down that runway. The collection was inspired by Nancy Wake, a spy during WW II and the collection was designed around Wake's life and what Zimmerman imagined she would be wearing today. Short bomber jackets, dramatic lace sleeves and leather detail filled the runway.
A collection that paid homage to Ainu people of Hokkaido, one of the oldest tribes in Japan, known for their dedication to living spiritually and in harmony with nature. The deigns were in shades that resembled elements of nature such as plants and flowers. Each garment had such beautiful detailing and tailoring to it.
