New York Fashion Week Report autumn/winter 2015

New York Fashion Week

An array of staged perfection was seen throughout AW15, embracing all things American, Tommy Hilfiger curated every man’s dream of an indoor football field and Marc by Marc Jacobs added a fashion chicness to AstroTurf, that beautifully contrasted his collection – however, we stripped back and focused on our favourite collections, that exuded in minimalism, avoiding distraction from their clothes that focused on nude tones, that will be a clear wardrobe must-have for AW15.

 The Row

The brainchild of these stylist twins, The Row focused on clinical whites juxtaposed with dark and twisted shades of moss and intense navy. Oversized jackets, tailored to perfection graced the catwalk – taking inspiration from Mary Kate & Ashley’s signature style aesthetic.

Subtle textures of soft silks, gave a seductive edge, encouraging a lingerie outerwear effect – which we loved.

Our key must-have piece, a leather kimono, adding an extra touch of texture to the softness of their collection, styled perfectly with a loosely fitted pair of white trousers, that stays true to their ethos of AW15.

Kendall Jenner, the current talking point of all things supermodel, introduced the show – with a symbolic monochrome wrap dress. The connotations of this are clear, the empowerment of all things feminine.

With clear sightings and adaptations of Diane’s signature piece, we were shocked with a structured white bomber jacket, with added blocks of wool-like haven, alongside a colbalt blue, tailored two piece suit, cleverly reflecting back to her signature look, as it subtly tucked in with the waist – a feminine twist.

An array of gradual colour ways were seen, with an introduction of monochrome, followed by intense colbalt blues, seductive reds and cleverly finished with staple black evening gowns – as if Diane’s collections were to start the full circle again.

Our key must-have piece, the monochrome jacket, displaying a paint like splash of dark whites, embedded on a dark navy jacket, tailored to perfection – Diane’s adaptation of the traditional black and white combination is flawless.

Victoria Beckham 

Victoria-Beckham-AW15

Accentuating the body with a combination of textures and hues was noted, as Victoria Beckham showed of her AW15 collection. Aside, from the oversized jackets that draped the models, a mixture of heavy and soft knitted dresses, encouraged women to introduce style within the boardroom – this collection, was an array of key investment pieces, perfectly wearable for every woman.

With the emphasis of knitwear fashioned with neutral tones, Victoria gave the impression that she excelled in keeping bold brights out – with the exception of subtle orange hues, of a statement jacket and skirt.

Our key must-have piece, the patchwork dress, a combination of intense colours and textures, the silhouette exudes all things lady like – with a loose hem, signature drop waist and knitted roll neck – a symbolic Victoria Beckham dress that every woman has space within their wardrobes for.
