Just when you thought the fashion week talks were over and done with, we pull you right back in for trends. Which is perfect timing as you Instagram feed is no longer spammed with blurry, discolored images of models strutting down the runway in what seems to vaguely resemble a dress. Or jumper. Or skirt and wide legged bottoms. At this point who can really tell?
Anyway, back to pulling you in with trends, which we love and hate simultaneously. It’s a great constant revival of some era or overdone inspiration, but it’s also an important indignation of what’s hot and what’s not for the upcoming season. And though I yawned more often than I’d like to admit to the creations draped across those multi-million dollar silhouettes, there were a handful that truly caught my fancy. This week we focus on New York Fashion Week and all its big apple glory, starting with “Walking Masterpiece”.
You know, those designs that seem more befitting for a work in a museum than as fashion, but somehow eerily works. This season designers played with patchwork, linear looks and Native American influences to create these masterpieces. Some stuck with the common black and white, this allowing the details to enhance their medium like Cushnie et Ochs and J. Mendel. While others opted for contrast layering and vibrant colors to demonstrate the beauty that is art, like Custo Barcelona and J.Crew.
Weighted in wools, furs, raw silks and heavy cotton, don’t be surprised to see overall richness added to many wardrobes later this year.
