Today I am doing a post on what I thought were the best collections at New York Fashion Week. Hope you enjoy it!!
Marc Jacobs – The Autumn/Winter 2014 Marc Jacobs collection was very different from his previous ones. It was soft, modern and very neutral. Pieces included sixties inspired tunic dresses worn over ribbed leggings, wide v-necked boxy jumpers, dip-dyed fur bomber jackets, crystal beaded swirl print tunics, hand-painted organza dresses and loose woollen trousers. Colours were muted and pastel toned. Models at the show were accessorised with woolly headbands and razor-cut bobs to give the show more of a sixties feel.
Ralph Lauren – In contrast to Ralph Lauren’s playful Polo line, his womenswear collection is all about uptown luxury and elegance. This winter collection colour palette consisted mainly of whites, creams, soft mauves, pinks and the lightest shades of grey. Pieces in the collection included turtlenecks, side-split column skirts, silk jersey gowns, pale pink lamé strapless evening dresses, off the shoulder silk tops, shawl-backed sheath dresses, masculine tailored coats and suits, loose trousers, cashmere jumpers and mannish fur overcoats.
Michael Kors – This collection was almost like an evolution of Michael Kors’ Spring 2014 collection. Inspired by people on the streets of New York, he created a charming, romantic and luxurious collection for A/W 2014. Duluxe cashmere sweaters, printed dresses belted at the waist, simple cotton shirts, A-line skirts, chunky cardigans over slip dresses, fringed skirts and fur coats were just a few of the items in the show. Colours were restricted to browns, black, greys and creams. The clothes were both casual and dressy. There was something for every occasion.
Diane Von Furstenberg – 40 years ago Diane Von Furstenberg created the iconic wrap dress, and now was the time to celebrate the dress that created her fortune, with this collection being all about the wrap. Pieces in the collection included wrap dresses, wrap blouses, wrap cardigans, along with other garments such as bias-cut maxi skirts, cocoon coats, long jersey trousers and sweater dresses, all with a seventies feel. The collection was heavily printed with love knots, rose buds, stars and clouds in colours such as black, gold and silver.
Victoria Beckham – Victoria Beckham created a very fluid and tailored collection for Fall, which isn’t really what you expect to see from her. Everything was clean, crisp and a little bit masculine. The collection had a monochrome palette with a splash of bright red to add some colour. Pieces in the collection included pleated chiffon-cashmere coats, cowl-neck knits, pleated goddess gowns, cashmere camisoles, midi skirts, long narrow trousers and halter-neck tunics, most of which were adorned with a chunky gold chain fastening.
