Trend Spotting: NY Fashion Week Recap

Calvin Klein
Light weight fabric in fab loose fitting dresses,  a lot of neutrals, colours were mainly pale palettes of blush orange, black and white. Some 70’s inspired pieces with the flared pants. Spotted a couple of flared cropped pants and nicely structured jackets. Some of the dresses had the chemise inspired  look of the 20’s which has been quite popular lately.


Micheal Kors
This collection went from  military inspired theme with a lot of pieces featuring Khaki to brightly coloured sarongs in bold colours to pieces with loads of prints. Some pieces had one of this seasons hottest look animal prints. Colour palettes were  browns, tans and green and a couple of pieces featured orange and 
red which have seen quite frequently lately.

Proenza Schouler
This collection showed a lot of detailing and tailored look. Loads of prints, some geometric looks and  colour- blocked pieces, particularly love the colour blocked print pieces very edgy, and the gorgeous colour blocked wedges worn by the models. Loads of bright colours, yellows, orange , blues and greens. Overall fantastic collection.

Ellie Tahari
Glamorous pieces in palettes that looked minimalist compared to what we have seen so far. Love the sophistication of the collection a lots of glitzy pieces in gold, loads of light weight fabric.

As the New York fashion week came to an end we can comfortably say hello!!! To Prints, Graphics, Bold colors my personal favourite is Orange, and a subtle approach to colour blocking.   

Fingers crossed lets see what London and Paris weeks will foretell.

Trend Spotting: NY Fashion Week Day 3,4 & 5

Alexander Wang
Wangs collection had a tough girl's theme going, with drawstring rompers and shorts, some pieces with oversized pockets. I particularly love the tough biker girl pieces. Dominant colours were blues, blacks and a sprinkling of orange, and pink.

Carolina Herrera
Elegant chic dresses in nature inspired theme of greens, black and white sheath dresses. Again some 70’s inspired theme with the light chifony fabrics. A couple of ethnic pieces, Colours were nature greens, mustard yellow, chic white and red. I totally love this collection, one of my favorites so far and totally wearable fab …fab!

Monique Lhuillier
Elegant form fitting dresses,  some pieces had a mix of laces and leather, which is quite edgy. This collection also had a show of bold colours, colours here were electric blues, reds and yellows with a dose of graphic patterns.


Bold bold... prints in screaming reds and blue,  very bright, colorful the overall look is typical DKNY.

This label has been been committed to producing luxury clothing using sustainably sourced and recycled materials and promoting trades in developing countries since its launch in 2005 . It supports factories in Africa where 37% of the women’s line is produced. The collection was a mash up of floral prints with tradition African prints, this fusion was so well done that it down plays the tribal look a bit and gives the collection a more contemporary feel, no wonder this brand has a huge celebrity following.

Diane Von Furstenberg
This was everything from simple chic dresses to loud floral jumpsuits. The theme was evolutionary and colour palette ranged from earth tones to blues and pinks. Overall fabulous and totally wearable.

Victoria Beckham
Sexy form fitting dresses conveyed in rich details and absolute sophistication which just conveys a sense of subtle luxury. Very wearable straight from the runway, again a good dose of colours and geometry.

Its looking like we are going to be seeing a lot of Orange, yellows, blues and pinks, Yay!!!  to colours , Prints and Geometry.
