Now that NYFW has officially wrapped, we’ve recapped five shows that stood out to us and the trends that were prominently displayed at each.
Revival with Tommy Hilfiger
His first runway in 3 years, TH debuted a new logo and a capsule collection with Richard Quinn. The Warhol themed show brought together art, fashion, music and celebrity culture. Overall the looks were quite androgynous playing with tons of layering, oversized proportions and use of the new logo print. The juxtaposition of mixing punk & leather with the classic staples like knit and plaid felt 90’s throwback w/ a fresh take.
Sporty with Telfar
Telfar, known for their tote bags ended NYFW with a sporty, ready to wear collection. Taking influence from an Olympic collection the designer created for the Tokyo games, the show featured sweatshirts, trackpants, and skirts made from basketball jersey material. Telfar continues to elevate sportswear but at an affordable retail price point.
Color w/ Prabal Gurung
Dubbed a different direction for Gurung, this collection was an explosion of both sheer and color. We saw mint, fuchsia, cobalt and chartreuse used in flowing silk-chiffon, tulle and feathers coming down the runway. Lingerie pieces, latex tights and black long gloves were added to bring a little edge to the softer pieces of his collection.
Cutouts with LaQuan Smith
Smith is best known for his bodysuits and form fitting dresses, however this show debuted more daywear and diversity in his design. We saw cargos, trousers and miniskirts on the runway but most notably I was drawn to the interesting way he incorporated cutouts across many of the pieces. Body plates and vinyl added to the high voltage sexy looks.
Shine with Brandon Maxwell
Late 90’s/early 2000’s inspired looks dominated Maxwell’s latest collection. Softer colors, like pastels and lavender were prominent featured in materials like silk, satin and sequins that produced a high sheen on the catwalk. Flowy materials were well balanced by blazers, trousers and mini skirts.
Until next year!
