New York Fashion week set the bar high this season on and off the runway. From hypnotising animal prints by Tom Ford to Robots at the Philip Plien show. Dramatic shows and iconic front row moments like Cardi B and Anne Wintour side by side at the Wang show. Eighties revival seemed to be rather consistent on the runway this season. A return of glamour and fantasy.
Shoulder pads, sequins and animal print formed the core of Tom Fords collection. Rock n Roll eighties glamour was clearly inspiration behind each look. Each look was distinctively Tom Ford, a brand known for its glamour and sex appeal.
Marc Jacobs proved why he is a forced to be reckoned with in fashion. In line with the eighties theme we have been seeing on the runway. Marc Jacobs brought fantasy and 80s nostalgia back together. Each piece brought drama and excitement to the runway.
Calvin Klien transformed the American Stock exchange into a snowy other worldly destination. Aided by the designs of Raf Simmons, that were weird, classic, and beautiful. The colour palette remained in line with the aesthetic of Calvin Klien.
Vivienne Tam’s looks were travler inspired. Using a varied color pallete and a multitude of textures to achieve each look.
Coach 1941 stuck to the coach asethic that is vintage inspired. The collection was grunge with some old western influences.
Anna Sui looked to the 60s for this collection. The hippie elements were evident in the styling and color palette of this collection.
Alexander Wang was dark, sexy and strong. Each look seemed to be inspired by the 80s working woman with a futuristic twist. And ofcourse with lots of black as is Wangs signature.
Dion Lee was a beautifully cultivated collection . The looks were fluid and cohesive with a neutral colour palette. The looks seemed to take inspiration from professional/military styled blazers in conjunction with lingerie. The looks were strong yet feminine.
