There is an abundant of designers from New York Fashion Week that we all look forward to seeing each season. However there is always a few that stick out. Before we go into that, we’ve put together a small round up of some of the stand-out designers at NYFW AW15.
Proenza managed to be the talk the town this season, thanks to Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez abstract prints and tribal textures. There was so much attention to detail in this collection, with a red and black hard-hitting color scheme and the experimenting in mixing textures. The show illustrated a stunning success of tribal designs in bold and daring prints with masses of texture with, fur-trimmed chiffons, slashed viscose knits, feathers, sequins and shredded shoes. The red and black mixture was a striking color combination and the collection had a soft touch of the pale grey.
Tailoring was very strong Jason Wu’s third collection at Boss as he illustrated the true Boss lady in chic yet domineering fits. It seems as though military is not going out of season any time soon, with navy, khaki and olive colors already on trend in previous seasons and oncoming ones too. The Boss AW 15 collection was a mix of military inspired shapes in structured coats, and jackets. As Jason Wu is known to be chic in his own collections, at Boss he add a touch of feminity to the military tailored numbers with shimmering sequins on the slick suits. In other words, Jason is making the military trend, a little subtle with sleek and minimal detail. A twist our wardrobe can appreciate.
Marc Jacobs’ closed NYFW AW15 where he showcased Victorian glamour, with prints in shimmering snakeprint and gothic hues – sturdy greys, blood reds, dark metallics and de-saturated raspberry, with black lace floor length skirts, floral full skirts that can be traced back to the 1940s, sheer tulle peeking beneath tunics, over-elbow gloves, with a touch of the emerging 70s trend, and Peter Pan collars and v-necked tank tops. There were bondage elements with straps across body and thigh-high leather boots (we predict these will be a big trend next season). Marc Jacobs’ real standout was the shimmer – the sequins, jewels and embellishment which adorned everything on the catwalk. A strong season for Marc Jacobs, and is due to stay prominent throughout the season.
