So with one fashion week down, and three more to go, we thought we’d give you a quick round up of the biggest shows in New York.
VB warmed our hearts before the show by tweeting a photo of a note from her children wishing her luck, not that she needed it. With another collection that’s bound to be a sell-out, Mrs Beckham enchanted us by doing what she does best: slinky, black dresses that look effortlessly chic. She played with hitched up skirts and huge buttons to keep the collection edgy and sexy.
Back on form after parting with Louis Vuitton, Jacobs’ collection was filled with sheath dresses covered in perfect winter patterns- dogtooth, tartan etc. Proving that there’s nothing wrong with wearing navy and black together, Jacobs kept the collection fresh with strips of wet look leather across the skirts and the collection got less traditional as the show went on with a see through dress.
The Velvet Underground comes to mind when viewing Calvin Klein’s show. Playing with textures such as velvet and fur, this collection was about the materials more than anything else. Pleats and panels were also a key feature of many outfits.
The focus at Proenza Schouler was on coats and layers. Spotty tights and tweed were also noticeable trends. Hemlines on both coats and dresses were kept midi length and the key colours seemed to black, navy and a rusty red. Panelling and cutouts were also key to the looks on display.
Oscar De La Renta
The first collection with Peter Copping at the helm. With a FROW full of socialites and celebrities including Taylor Swift, the show looked set to be a promising one. Prim and ladylike outfits sashayed down the runway. Skirts were the noticeable trend here, some were tweed, some were pencil and some were A line, some more flared than others. The occasion dresses were embellished with black florals.
Kors produced everything you would expect to see in an Autumn/Winter collection from fur to the grey and caramel colour scheme. Wintery patterns such as paisley were present as were chunky knits, brown loafers and herringbone. Oxblood, khaki and mustard also worked their way in to the colour scheme which gave the looks a vintage feel. A show that got everyone willing to skip the summer and head straight to winter so they could put on a pretty patterned mustard dress, long wool coat and a chunky cardigan.
