NYFW sets the stage for the next season of fashion and as a stylist, it’s important to keep my eye on emerging designers and overarching themes. Here is a NYFW recap, what went down on the runways and a peak into what we will be wearing for Spring/Summer 24’ based on the most notable collections.
TRENDS FROM THE RUNWAY
Many of the trends from SS24 seem to be carried over in some variation for fall, either in slightly different forms or exaggerated versions we are seeing this season.
RUCHING strategic scrunched fabrics and draping on dresses and tops.
DROPPED WAISTLINES as seen in maxi dressedsand gowns from Staud and Christian Sirano showcase off the waistline and hips in low rise styles.
LACE IT UP – Lace up corset tops but also expect lace ups styles to appear in other pieces like pants and skirts.
SHINE – metallics, sequins and high shine fabrics will be carried over into next year
SHEER – Lingerie style lace and sheer fabrics.
SCULPTURAL – sculptural shoulders, peplums and 3D floral motifs proved that futuristic/3D appliques are of the moment for spring.
SHADES OF YELLOW – butter yellow is hot for fall but expect to see all shades of yellow for spring from muted shades to high impact brights.
Khaite – Bold statement looks went down the dark and edgy runway. Showcasing strong jackets and outwear, leather and fringe counterbalanced by softer silks in flowy cuts and dramatic sleeves.
LaPointe – Sally LaPointe took over the streets of Soho to debut her first show post-pandemic. Futuristic glam dresses, coats and suiting heavy in metallics and leather with fur and feather accents.
Kate Barton – Modern, sculptural, futuristic and sustainable. Engineered materials were used in metals and chrome to create avant-garde draping and shapes in a standout collection.
Diotima – Crochet, beading and lace work were interwoven with more classic pieces like blazers and trousers to create a unique dichotomy.
Peter Do (for Helmut Lang) – The designers highly anticipated runway debut showed classic button downs and full suiting with interesting color blocking details and cuts mixed in with a Helmut Lang logo print shown in seperates.
Noticeably missed from NYFW this year? Attendees taking a lot of fashion risks. I’m not sure if hot weather played a part or if classics were just reigning supreme, but many guests opted for more subdued looks than in years past. Power blazers, monochromatic dressing and neutrals took center stage for much more wearable outfits. Individuality and “out there” fashion took a back seat.
Until next year!
