New York was the first city to showcase their designer's Autumn/winter collection of 2015. Now that fashion week are all wrapping up its time to sum up the catwalk trends. We are familiar with the seventies trend and colour palette and prints from my last post and form previous season. But each cities, like people have different influences both culturally and socially which effects could be seen collectively on the runway.
New York has embrace the Flare. This particular trouser shape has been having a renaissance for a few seasons now. The culotte has transformed from the past fashion faux par to chic ankle grazer trouser that can be warn smart or casual. Calf length ‘shorts’ are length of choice, even in winter. At Tibi, They are sophisticated, tailored and look perfect paired with oversize knits or get a light pair for summer like at Tracy Reese.
Androgyny and gray are a perfect fashion marriage. In true new-yorkers way its cooler to not look like you're trying to look cool. One of the more understated look to come off the runway. Slouched silhouettes, relaxed fit in many shades of gray and slight norm-core nod. Looks like they threw it together last minute but look closer and everything matches and tailored to perfection. Perfect smart casual uniform of the season.
Kanye West proved at Addidas show that body stockings are a real thing. The rest are agreeing on sheer tights with strappy sandals. This is great for going into spring too so stock up! Sheer are great for showing your winter pins without much legs prep. We saw sexy spots tights at Diane Von Furstenberg, textured at Nicole Miller and coloured at Honor and Jeremy Scott. What ever takes your fancy as long as they're sheer and pair with short skirts for 70's rocker chic reference.
Winter aren't all tights and polo necks. The disco is still alive and we will be wearing slip dresses once again. Similar to the plunge neckline phenomenon, spaghetti straps and material that clings to the body screams feminine sex apparel. Monique Ihuillier and Rodarte's slip dresses nailed red carpet ready looks. J.Mendel, Diane Von Furstenberg and Narciso Rodriguez are more relaxed evening look.
