We’ve only just left Summer behind and yet the world of fashion have already planned what we will be wearing next summer! Time flies when we’re having so much fun with fashion. As New York Fashion Week SS15 draws to a close and the fashion pack crosses the Atlantic to get ready for centre stage in London, we at Asian Fashion have picked our 5 favourite collections that have just graced the New York runway.
Marc By Marc Jacobs
Giant monochrome polka dots were seen on the runway at Marc By Marc Jacobs, along with loose and almost androgynous silhouettes. Asymmetrical pieces formed by clashing fabrics, joined in a haphazard manner created a rebellious, street vibe along with the skin-tight, latex pants. The overall tone was muted, complimented with occasional flashes of neon yellow, fuchsia and aqua blue.
There was a definite 70’s vibe on the runway at Tommy Hilfiger and quite a hippy yet rock ‘n’ roll feel to it. Although there was plenty of colour, the shades were somewhat dark in tone and often in the form of stars and horizontal stripes (coincidently elements from the American flag? how patriotic). There was a certain fluidity to the silhouettes with the star printed transparent kaftan worn by Kendall Jenner being one of our favourite pieces. Outfits were teamed with 70’s inspired knee high, metallic leather and velvet boots.
Victoria Beckham opted for utilitarian chic with a predominantly monochrome and sandy beige palette, with a dash of camouflaged colour. Cinched in waists with leather belts, large pockets, and clean and crisp silhouettes were noted at Beckham’s show, as well as the cowboy inspired flat but pointy shoes with the same camouflage floral print as seen in her designs.
On the runway at Donna Karan, the silhouette was very feminine and reminiscent of the 1940’s, where the top half was slightly bouffant, the waist was tightly cinched, and where hemlines stayed conservatively below the knee. There was a strong sense of ethnic influence in the colours and prints that Karan chose for her designs as well as playing with various fabrics and textures.
Alexander Wang was another designer that chose to go for a monochrome palette with flashes of primary colours for his sport luxe inspired collection. Hemlines were short and flirty, often A-line or pleated, and pants were tailored with a defined seam down along the centre leg. Leather piping, mesh panels and geometric lines were just some of the key elements seen at the Alexander Wang show in New York.
