After New York Fashion Week a month ago I was left inspired. I felt as excited for the near future with the way I will interpret the trends into my own wardrobe. NYFW might be over but this is not the last time we will see these trends and with many designers adopting the see now buy now model many more customers will be wearing the trends earlier.
Proenza Schouler truly stunned this seanon. Not only was I pleasantly surprised by their almost technological approach to traditional tribal ideas. Vibrant colour was a main aspect of their show mixed with wide neck chokers and tribal inspired earrings the result is an amazing collection.
Tough girls reign with coach. Not only was the tough girl idea featured in all of the looks but coach seemed to remarkably contrast the tough girl aspect with floral dresses and fringe bags. Models walked down th he runway emitting this air of constant tough girl through out the show from the over sized leather jackets to the studded shoes this collection has was the epitome of cool girl clothing.
Urbanwear deluxe is represented at public school. From the sock boots and the distressed sweaters to the transparent hooded coat this collection screams street wear. The public school boys have impressed with this rugged urban show.
Tom Ford has impressed.The extravagant coats are the epitome of luxury.The collection is classy, timeless and incredibly strong. I especially love the coats they seem like the perfect item to complete any outfit.
Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armsien were the official hosts of opening ceremony. They proved banter, humour and commentary to the “pageant of the people” that highlighted issues such as the importance of voting. The clothes featured an inspiring use of ruffles and different colours.
Daydream delight represented by Marc Jacobs. The collection and its overwhelming 1970s look is far too loveable. The girly daydream aspect of the show is strongly contrasted by the colourful dreadlocks worn by each model.
Oversized outerwear was my favourite from the many ideas shown in yeezy. The military feel of the collection was captivating with the usage of his mostly neutral colours idea. Kanye has revolutionized as the nude can exist in more than one shade.
V files and ground zero in particular was one of my favourite shows. From its clear relation to the 90s to the extreme Japanese influence the collection. This show was a huge success to me.
HBA brought out street wear with a twist.Their baggy pants paired with their amazing t shirts just works so well together. HBA created an atmosphere of urban street and it works incredibly well.
Another show that made use of baggy clothing. Vera Wang showcased a beautifully simple collection. Feathering off the shoulders and extremely long sleeves creates a classical look that I more than enjoy.
Soft, elegant and girly are the words I would use to describe rodartes collection. The use ruffled lace and soft colours automatically remind me of The 1800s but Rodarte made the show both relevant and easy to wear. Which I admire.
Casual cool as I would describe this show. The amazing lacing around the stomach is definitely going to be a huge trend. This show is also very wearable and incredibly versatile.
I admire the use of colour and how the look all seem cohesive.
That’s all for New York.Stay tuned for more.- Tapiwa
