New York Fashion Week AW16/17

From glam rock details, to sweeping shearling coats and sporty jackets – New York City kickstarted Fashion Month off with style. Here is our edit of the emerging trends from the key shows and the most influential street style looks.

Alexander Wang

Alexander Wang had clearly taken inspiration from the dance floor and the nineties as his show featured lots of oversized slogan and hooded sweatshirts, cute mohair slip tops and mini dresses in leather and lace with silver hardware – perfect for the tomboy party girl. The whole look was finished with chunky jackets and boots to stomp to work in the next day – all worn with plenty of attitude.

Proenza Schouler

Proenza Schouler looked back to the seventies for their collection, which featured plenty of shearling and floor length coats. Patent fabric was everywhere in their collection and it looks to be edging out embroidery as leather’s most popular finish. Several of their pieces were available to buy straight off the catwalk – a growing trend from this season’s fashion week.

Streetstyle

The trend were not just made on the catwalk – the street style looks were just as inspiring. David Bowie’s passing influenced the fashion pack with a glam rock attitude, think plenty of stripes, patent boots and metallics. The sportswear trend is still going strong, with plenty of bomber jackets and hoodies seen on models and fashion editors alike, though this time the look was updated with pretty dresses and flowy scarves. With the freezing temperatures dropping to well below -12, faux fur was seen everywhere as everyone tried to keep warm on the streets outside the shows.
