Black and White
Even with a wide array of spring hues to choose from, a plethora of designers chose to go with black and white this season. Brands including Givenchy, Public School and DKNY all agreed on the fact that the simplest colors have the biggest impact.
Schoolgirl fashion is back. Thom Browne, J. Mendel and Public School dominated their collection with unique pleats, proving to the public that they can be creative in different cuts and colors.
No one was afraid to show off their shoulders this season. Calvin Klein, Derek Lam and Victoria Beckham included bare shoulder dresses and tops. Make sure to put sunscreen on those shoulders to avoid odd tan-lines though.
Shining brighter than any accessories this season, sequins dominated the skirts and dresses at Marc Jacobs and accessories at J Crew.
Spotlights for the best floral pieces were seen in Diane Von Furstenberg’s billowing silk blouses, Calvin Klein’s crisp coats and at 3.1 Philip Lim in sporty streetwear.
Ohne Titel, Anna Sui and Alexander Wang showcased stunning fringe pieces during NYFW. Their use of fringe deviated from the norm, using out of the box designs including chains and leather. Designers proved that fringes are no longer just for hippies.
Ralph Lauren, Public School and Alexander Wang used stripes of all different varieties. Lauren’s pieces emphasized elegance while Public School’s stripe pieces had more of a casual street look in wide pants and boxy button-ups. Wang’s vertical and horizontal stripes held a similar high street look.
Robes are not something you simply put on after a shower. Givenchy and Thakoon Addition challenged that norm with their takes on the luxury loungewear.
