NYFW Spring/Summer 16 | So Far…

by

So fashion month kicked off 5 days ago and we are into day 5 of the exciting New York Fashion Week, time flies right? It feels like it was just yesterday it started. Plus there’s the excitement about London Fashion Week.

Anyway, I finally found some time to catch up on some of the shows from NYFW over the weekend – here are some of the shows that caught my attention at first sight. Can we see any emerging trends yet?

Let’s start with day 2, Cushnie et Ochs

Well what can I say? I do love a good pastel collection, and of course sometimes simplicity wins. Those are just the few reasons why this collection tickled my fashion buds. The use of feminine and sophisticated silhouettes and how they made them look modern really caught my eyes. And, anyone who can make cleavage look as good and classy always wins in my book.

Ahhhh Givenchy

For the first time in its 63-year-history, the iconic French fashion brand left its home in Paris to stage a spectacular runway show at New York Fashion Week. One of the most star-studded shows so far. Riccardo Tisci made sure he invited his friends in fashion to see his first ever show in NY.
From his transparent assembles to his lacey silk slip on’s, it was just a beautiful reflective collection. He left no stone unturned with the details.

The shoes from the collection are already on the wishlist…

On to Day 3.

Mara Hoffman

Hoffman got her inspiration from musician, Willie Nelson, and turned the musician’s music into this beautiful colourful collection. Aside from the bold prints what drew me to this collection was how Hoffman could put a balance between a tomboy and feminine look. She took “classic shirt silhouettes”, boxy suits and popped collars and showed us that covering up can be sexy too. On to pigtail, could this be one hair trend to look out for?

…and on Day 4,

Victoria Beckham

I love how you can always relate Victoria’s collections to herself, she gives us a clear idea of what luxury looks like without having to break a sweat. I love her use of colour mixtures and prints, also lately her signature looks have been quite midi attires and a little more relaxed. There is a ‘blast from the past’ feel to this collection with the mini numbers and sporty print bomber jackets she threw in. We likey Mrs Beckham.

Do you have any favourites so far?
