NYFW DIAL UP THE COLOURFUL GLAM AGAIN
This NYFW season was overlapping with Oscars, so a bit of red carpet feel was super necessary. Exactly because of it, NYFW went all the way to Los Angeles with Tom Ford moving his show there for Oscars weekend. I sadly couldn’t make it, as I was committed already to NY, but have religiously followed mr.Ford’s catwalk from afar. My NYFW is as per always a bit jet lagged and very busy, visiting my favourite shows such as Zimmermann, Oscar De La Renta, Vera Wang, Veronica Beard, Jonathan Simkhai, Carolina Herrera, Longchamp and many more.
Overall few trends that are peeking from this season are cape silhouettes, vivid and vibrant colours, sustainability, the return of glamorous big shoulders. Most of street stylers were in pop colours with prevailing of camel, sand and cream with knits and blazers layered.
Enjoy my outfit combinations during my 15th NYFW.
NYFW brought fresh attitude
I am sharing some of the most impactful show impressions with you.
Carolina Herrera stays minimal as per now. Prevailing prints that she was using until now are changed with full colours such as yellow and black and bringing an oversized jacquard in blue or orange. Creative director Wes Gordon’s designs “contrasted nicely with so much glass and steel”.
Jonathan Simkhai’s treasure lays in his international cultural heritage. This season he expressed himself through discovering of his youth again . He did not experiment very much and stayed faithful to his Iranian roots, so he emphasised slip and trench dressing. Apart from it, Simkhai accentuated lavish knits and used a soft, sherbert palette. I loved the open back on a covered-up look. In my opinion this was his strongest collection so far.
Longchamp creative director Sophie Delafontaine is very very French, but from her very first show in New York during spring 2019, she was with American the bigger the better mentality at the amazing venue 25th floor of Hudson Commons. It was amazing to see glass walls with 70s vibe.
Rainy days at New York Public Library are only good when Oscar De La Renta Show is happening there. From floral prints on velvet dresses and knits, and very glossy silk shaped over corsets into bubble skirts. Towards the end we could see gowns in firework colours.
Vera Wang showed deep colours of green and black with that edgy look. She also celebrated 30 year anniversary of her brand this season and brought a lot of attenuated silhouettes with that “romantic fragility”.
PIECE OF BOTTEGA HEAVEN
I had quite a bumpy start of this NYFW, but everything turned out all right at the end. This was my first time after a long period to be on my own, without any help during NY Fashion Week. However I managed to deliver all I have committed to and that has given me a special feel of confidence.
Hope you enjoyed this outfit journey as much as I did creating it.
