Although New York Fashion Week flew by in the blink of an eye (as per usual ;)), many designers have introduced to us ideas that will continue to inspire throughout the year and beyond. From flowing dresses with eye catching silhouettes to sharp lined knits and jackets, this year’s shows kept us excited from beginning to end.
With the recent departure from minimal silhouettes at DKNY, designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osbourne had no issue diving into a new world of color and silhouettes at Public School. Paired with monotoned boot-sneaker hybrids, the duo put all their focus on the exploration of layers, draped tops and bottoms, and use of quilt-like material. We are truly inspired by the combination of DKNY’s signature street smart look combined with fresh interpretations of feminine silhouettes.
The introduction of Raf Simmons into the iconic American brand had crowds on the edge of their seats and for good reason; Simmons did not disappoint. The Calvin Klein show was all about clean lines and classic looks that played with shapewear in the form of sleek knits and boxy blazers. The offbeat incorporation of knits had our hearts craving for more.
Victoria Beckham’s easy and effortless attitude when it comes to fashion has been seen time and time again at her shows. “I’ve never really worn a blazer with a skirt,” says Beckham in terms of her own fashion choices which echoed in this seasons break from the norm. Pairing flowing chiffon skirts with sharp edged blazers is unfamiliar territory that was shown to be worth exploring. From slouchy, red knee-high boots to clean collars, we all got to see glimpses of Beckham’s beloved signature style with a twist.
