Day 1: Thursday 12
I feel the gothic vibe in all the pieces (and hair) because of the shapes and colours, but also some 70´s inspired as everything right now.
BCBG Max Azria
A perfect adaptation of the boho style for the winter by mixing several layers of dresses and turtlenecks. Not to mention the over the knee boots.
Original, modern, young, colourful, casual, sporty... but over all attention grabbing!
Kanye X adidas
I don´t like this, but as everybody is talking about it I should blog about it. Anyway I can see Kanye West´s rebel personality in all the outfits.
Formal dresses but not for a red carpet yet, maybe for a cocktail or fancy party. I really the way it added the hottest trend of the season, the fringe, to a formal dress. Thumbs up!
Creatures of the Wind
I see a little of the 60´s with the mini dress, but still in neutral colours. Simple, but interesting.
Polo Ralph Lauren
If you are a rock star living in the 70´s, you probably dress up like this.
THE new trend, the bandanna neck scarf! There are also bikers, and killer boots, but the scarf is too much!
Layers, proportions, office like... I see this with an overcoat for winter.
You know desigual is famous for its colours and prints, something so characteristic summer of the summer. I think they solved those two things perfectly, now the problem is the cold you´ll catch when the temperature is -0.
Day 2: Friday 13
Bring the 70´s back! I´m so in love with this trend, notice all the fringe involved in this looks (a perfect new trend). AMAZING!!!!
On the other hand, we have the formal but sexy Jason Wu. I mean, look at that dress!
I still can´t get over last seasons swimsuits and now this!
Kate Spade NY
Greatest details so far, I can tell you that chocolate clutch will be on everybody hands next season.
From the 20´s, to the 80´s, passing through the 50´s. But I´ll keep the 20´s glamour of the first dress, don´t you agree?
I had no idea of who was Suno, but after this show, I ´ll keep track of it.
Day 3: Saturday 14
René did it first... why Rene, why? Anyway, I do like the way they keep the classic lacoste pieces and mixed them with an over sized coat, or added a quote on the basic shirt
With that hair, I don´t care about the clothes. Congrats to the hairdressers who did an amazing job! Both thumbs up!
The typical band dress is always there, but this time a little more subtle. What I want to say is that it didn´t show to much.
The sporty vibe with a grunge slice and messy hair and you reached the Wang level. At first sight it might be a little shocking, but if you concentrate on the clothes, it´s so simple, something you would totally wear.
In his attempt to innovate he came across this collection. It´s original, not black, but not full colour, and it´s definitely aimed to an elegant woman.
A cozy collection on the brands modern and casual usual shapes. I volunteer to test it in cold temperatures!
Day 4: Sunday 15
Sporty, a little bit of colour block, big proportions, and as the designer said, "the New York uniform".
A little inspiration from the East, some from the 90´s and paillettes, and this is the result, an elegant, formal, and original collection.
Layers, layers, robes, and more layers. Everything is based on the superposition, creating a modern collection without past routes.
A little sexy by times, a little formal others. The secret is in adding enough dose of provocation to an everyday working outfit.
Her IT item, the dress, made a comeback this season, along with the oversize coats, keeping it monochromatic with special attention to the necklines and the asymmetrical endings. Simple but elegant.
Conservative pieces that layered are not so conservative for a brand that captured the typical winter scene but added some condiment with the short skirts.
Diane Von Furstenberg
Aimed for powerful woman that can rule the world either in tailoring or in dresses, a basic collection that only DVF can make it look sexy.
Inspired by a car wash service, Custo created this collection of mainly mini dresses, a lot of plaid, and an interesting use of materials to recreate his inspiration. The collection looks good, so why are we going to judge his inspiration?
Inspired by a friends photography, the label decided to take us back to a world with little technology and a non-digital camera. What I really like are the colours in black but in contrast with natural beige and whites.
Delicate dresses, but in different materials make them have different label. Leaving behind the skin tight dresses, Gurung created a sexy collection by mixing ideas such as side slits or transparencies.
Day 5: Monday 16
I haven´t seen a Carolina Herrera collection with so much blue in ages, and I´m glad she did a change and got the inspiration from the nature of water and did this incredible collection. As usual, she never forgets about the elegance but from now onwards she´s focusing on the future.
Mr. Tommy is a typical American, and that is no news, but this year he got into the hear of them by making the runway a NFL pitch. It´s no news after his last collection presented on a rock festival look alike space.
3.1 Phillip Lim
For it´s 10th anniversary, a lot of leather, plaid, and the brands original ideas were there emphasised more than ever. Happy Anniversary!
As we can see, it´s clear that she got this inspiration from her beloved New York. The background was even the city at nigh, with the golden lights, just as her collection. Either dresses or suits, both very new yorker.
"The story here is the late 60´s and early 70´s boho with a sexy rock an roll vibe" said Stacey Bendet. I must add the minimal details of bearding.
Zac Posen always has the best red carpet dresses, but they are a little boring sometimes. I like it that this time he innovated with textures and prints, not to mention the finale!
It´s stuck in between a throwback and a futuristic view. It´s simple colours, but interesting shapes. That´s Rag and Bone.
WOW! I had no idea you could include the 70´s inspiration on formal red carpet dresses, but yes you can! I´m in total love with this collection and rate it with an A+.
Day 6: Tuesday 17
Marrakesh meets Chelsea, the African prints on the Brits boohoo. I couldn´t be better.
When you work with Swarovski nothing can go wrong. There were so many good things in this outfits, to list some I could say, the beading, the forms, the cloths, the colours... I could go on but I prefer looking at the pics.
Jil Sander Navy
When you mix the 60´s with the rain, you get mini dresses and high boots, and trust me, it looks good. I´d like to wear something like the following.
Details, it´s all in the details. I´ve never seen such amazing shoes as in this presentation. Prints, flower appliques, and more materials, but despite such good accessories, the clothes were as good as them.
I couldn´t be happier that Rachel is presenting at nyfw. As you know, her shows are a lot of what she wears, but I think that this time she went further, and created a collection with inspirations from the 60´s and 70´s BUT added a futuristic touch.
Marc by Marc Jacobs
Suffragette, unite, solidarity, and more were the words used to explain the politicised world we live in today, that it even becomes part of the fashion industry. This is the reason why you might identify military sings in the collection.
Oscar de la Renta
Peter Coppings first show for the label, the first one without Oscar de la Renta. I must say that the s/s show got me so starstruck I didn´t know how would I get over it, but after seeing this collection I felt so happy that even if Oscar was not with us anymore, the label is still very good.
What can I say? It looks simple, it is simple, but that´s how the designer wanted to show it. I believe that with some accessories, or the things separately it will look more interesting. (the vest with skinny jeans would be a different story).
One of the many shows I feel like they are couture. It has an old Hollywood glamorous side, but also a romantic essence, maybe from the 70´s as everything at the moment, but mainly romantic. It´s worth a red carpet moment. Oh, and he celebrated the 10th years anniversary with a live graffiti.
Always dark (sometimes a bit boring for me), but not this time. A transparent blouse with flower appliques, a shiny leather skirt, the most over sized sweater dress ever, definitely not boring.
Oh, how isn´t this couture? Two different dresses, but elegant, unique, fun. I´m looking forward to seeing them on a red carpet.
Diesel Black Gold
I really like how an oversized sweater has a lace ending. It´s very monochromatic, but the different textures makes it interesting.
OMG! Jenny kills it and kills it every season. I was talking to a friend about it, and we came to the conclusion that summer colours suits her better, but there´s nothing to criticise about this collection either.
Day 7: Wednesday 18
That ladylike dress of the middle is so perfect I won´t be able to sleep thinking about it. I mean a princess could easily pull it off, and so do I. But in general the whole collection is a mixture between feminine shapes and masculine proportions. Whatever you are interested in, you'll find it in this show.
If you are the boss, don´t doubt it, wear a slip dress (for a party) and a suit!
A flower garden for winter? oh yesss! It reminds me of when I was about six that we had to act as flowers, and I had to be the BLACK one! But this dresses are much better.
I think Jeremmy had a flashback on his childhood days and created a collection inspired by it. Take a look at that hair, looks super original.
Are we out of the woods? I don´t think so...but I do think this outfit is not appropriate for camping.
With a clear inspiration in the 20´s I wonder why wasn´t I born back then? This collection is worth watching it entirely if you like couture or party dresses. The details in each outfit is something only Marchesa can do.
I think that what I said before about the 70´s was all wrong after I saw this collection. It´s like seeing a hippie back from that time! It´s so extreme that it makes it matchless with any
From structured knit dresses to chiffon dress, all with cut out tigths.There´s also an interesting use of materials in that chiffon dress, it looks like feathers and metals.
Day 8: Thursday 19
Western inspiration, but applied to glamorous outfits (the one of golden sequins) was the base for the collection. People in the city dress as if they were on the countryside, and that´s what Ralph Lauren tried to achieve.
Calvin Klein Collection
Texture created by bands (it might not be clear to say it this way, but it´s a similar technique to the classic Herve Leger dress) one over another. It´s less simple than any other CK collection, a risk that ended in the good way
Shear, sparkling and revealing necklines and slits...
Dark, but with and intersting mixture of prints and texture such as lace and sequins. If you avoid the make up, the clothes are nice!
-fringe in skirts, dresses, boots. coats, bags, etc.
-layers to keep it warm
-bandannas as scarfs
