I haven’t had time to catch up with all the New York shows, but I’m doing my best to keep up. I’ve picked five collections I really, really love to feature on here, and I’ll be updating throughout fashion month. I’m excited to see what designers send down the runway, and I’m even more excited that some of the trends so far are so good! Here are a few favorites…
Milly was all about the sheer layers and patterns.Skirts and tops leave little to the imagination, and although some of the silhouettes and pieces have been done before, there’s a lot that feels new. This collection is sexy, revealing, artistic and elegant. It’s for a confident woman, but it will sure make her feel beautiful.
Assembly is the clothing equivalent to the cool older sister of your best friend who you always wanted to be friends with. This collection is minimal in a cool, sort of grungy way. It’s easy, it’s simple, but it’s not boring. Whites on whites and blacks on blacks are perfect for spring especially in easy breezy silhouettes. Definitely a favorite.
The Mulleavy sisters sent out a collection of 70′s pirates and ethereal mermaids. This collection is incredible, and the intricate detailing in some of the gowns is amazing. Lace up boots and netted overlay were some noteworthy details, and jackets with oversized pockets and straps were a personal favorite. Can Rodarte do any wrong? I’m beginning to think the answer is no.
Thom Browne sent look after look of eccentricity down the runway. Oversized hats that seemed more like sculptures were paired with suits and skirt sets in over the top prints. This collection isn’t for the faint of heart or for the timid, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Thom Browne’s latest is for the loud personality who knows how to make a statement in a put together sort of way.PS.. check out that clear raincoat!
Easily my favorite collection thus far into fashion month, Wendy Nichol has crafted a collection that is western, gothic and romantic all in one. This collection has been taken the dark and Victorian themes we’ve been seeing for Fall and updated them for spring. Lace, silk, satin and the perfect all black and white color palette define this dreamy collection.
