New York fashion week was one for the history books. Some of our fave collections included:
Ralph Lauren Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary fashion show was amazing ; the Central Park setting, the celebrity guests, the 110-look collection, the Oprah speech. Ralph Lauren is the father of American sportswear. In the five decades since he began, he has managed to export the allure of a nation in a way no other American fashion brand has been able to. His message always shows in his collections. One which is simple and clear: be true to yourself!
Marc Jacobs His show was a tribute to his obsessions: YSL, Chanel, giant Pierrot collars. And it was grand! While demonstrating his kid-like quality, Jacobs collection was like a callback to the 80s-era Yves Saint Laurent, to Karl Lagerfeld’s earliest days at Chanel and to his own archive, only everything was taken to the extremes.
Brock Collection To those who found Laura and Kristopher Brock’s bustiers and brocades to be little too ladylike, this collection’s for you! There are more eccentric, feather-trimmed frocks, and the most out-there number combined sheer black lace, multi-striped jacquard, and two tiers of fluffy white plumes.
Gabriela Hearst Gabriela Hearst has become the New York resource for a serious, expertly cut pantsuit. Her suits often come in a surprising color, like bordeaux or blush pink, or a novel fabric such as metallic linen, but this season’s most striking was cut single-breasted with slim trousers in dark navy silk wool.
Gypsy Sport An ode to mother nature, the collection opened with a vision of planet Earth printed on a pair of salvaged Levi’s. The models came bounding down the runways with palm leaves sprouting from their hair and cowrie shells dangling from their wrists. Around 99% of the collection was made from sustainable or repurposed materials.
