It came from New York Fashion Week
There were some trends that stuck out at New York Fashion Week and here is a look at them.
When you take off that beanie you have been wearing all day and your hair is kind of static and stuck to your scalp, well it is now a hair and beauty reference thanks to DKNY and Alexander Wang.
Hide your Neck
Polo necks are all over the fashion scene right now and more so at New York Fashion Week. At DKNY there were neoprene funnels, ball details were seen at Alexander Wang and at Victoria Beckham there were gigantic woolly ones.
Tommy Hilfiger used them for layering and a 60s vibe was created at Edun and a 70s flair at Thakoon.
Celine came out with simplicity and now as fashion moves forward designers have started to update it and undo it with asymmetric hems as seen at Beckham and DKNY, frayed edges as seen by Edun and deconstructed flappy undone zips and layers as seen by Phillip Lim.
At The Row, belted kimono details over beautiful minimalism added a mild complication.
The Saint Laurent Influence
Hedi Slimane’s fondness for rock n roll 60s has infiltrated the catwalks. Edun showed suede go-go thigh boots and sharp leather Carnaby Street tunics. The Saint Laurent influence could also be seen in Diane von Furstenberg’s backstage boudoir dresses.
There appears to be no lightness in footwear as seen by Victoria Beckham’s calf boots that are chunky heel loafer hybrid. Coach had biker boots with shearling tongues. Alexander Wang had an all-black collection with ball and chain details and Frankenstein boots.
The Opening Ceremony
With fashion moving so quickly it can be hard to know what New York fashion stand for. Carol Lim and Humberto Leon caught the essence in the Opening Ceremony collection with an exhibition of unseen Spike Jonze photographs from the 1990s. There were perfect slouch trousers, skater belts, brilliant layering and a Kodak moment colour palette.
