New York Fashion week is over (sad face). Of course I watched the shows on the NYFW app so I could keep up with all of my favorites like Coach, Jil Sander Navy, Tibi, Marissa Webb, Oscar de la Renta, Derek Lam, and Tory Burch. The Spring collections are always my favorite. Even when the temperature drops you can look at these clothes and imagine warmer days. My personal style correlates with these designers, that’s why I fell for every piece almost immediately. The Coach collection was filled with loose skirts and tops covered in floral prints along with subtle leather pieces that pair well for the fall season. I need to go out and pick up a few mini leather skirts before the snow comes. Overall I like the collection for the earlier fall months when the breeze is subtle and it’s still slightly warm.
I have this new interest in over sized clothing and Tibi has so many pieces I’m drooling over. When I was watching the collection I thought this is the epitome of spring with loose light fabric in neutral and pastel colors. Towards the end of the show darker colors appear on the runway. Perfect for a day to night transition.
TibiMarissa Webb stuck to her masculine/feminine theme of clothing that works so well for her. Her theme was based off of 1950’s photographs of her grandfather dressed head to toes in military fatigue. A lot of the jackets and vest definitely have that hard military feel but she pairs it with a soft blouse or dress. I love her as a designer and her work is always incredible.
Peter Copping did an AMAZING job with this collection. His eye for color is phenomenal and that showed with every piece that made it’s way down the runway. Part of Peter’s inspiration came from Oscar meeting Ava Gardner’s lover who was a bullfighter in the 1950’s. The red that was included in his collection was also inspired by the red carnations that are thrown into the ring after a bullfight.
Derek Lam’s collection had a bohemian feel which works well for the fall. I love a good sweater dress and this floor length one paired with wooden accessories a great combination. It doesn’t look too heavy so you can wear it during the early fall months. Second is a more formal dress with quarter length sleeves and a flared bottom.
These pieces are GORGEOUS!! According to Tory, she says “beauty found in unexpected places . . . enhanced through time and nature” was her inspiration for the show. Okay, I officially LOVE Tory Burch! Give me this whole collection!
