September is prominent in the fashion world for many reasons. First, it marks the launch of many notable magazines launching their tome-status September issue (have you grabbed our Spring issue yet?), and second, New York Fashion Week. Enough said.
Typically, NYFW sees dark, light, pretty and grunge, become intricately woven together. Meaning: it is notoriously difficult to pick out a few noteworthy moments from one of the biggest Fashion Weeks globally.
This year, we've done our very best to pull out our favourite trends try now, stand-out shows, and tidbits of style advice we gleaned from NYFW's runways. So, sit back, relax, and get ready to do some serious damage on your credit card this season.
A brazen colour pop emerging from unexpected places, is certainly a good place to start. What comes to mind in particular is fashion line The Row, by Mary-Kate and Olsen, and Victoria Beckham's line, both which strayed from their 'safe' colour scheme and stunned the fashion elite with a range of uplifting shades.
Now, sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley are known for their attraction to neutral shades - which still featured in beige and cream coloured floor-sweeping coats. However, the concentration of colour in their show gradually moved from wine to sweet pink skirts, and lilac or raspberry elongated dresses. They even went as far as branching out to rose pink coats, sure to make a statement about their break-away from tradition. The duo's soft, draping collection caresses the body and produces an air of elegance, extra appropriate considering their breakfast show was held in the opulent Carlyle Hotel.
Fashion royalty Victoria Beckham also took a slightly different path, adding shades of pretty pastels to her traditionally dark fashion line. However, don't be fooled, the androgynous shirts tucked into burnt orange, turquoise, and pink pencil skirts, created a dynamic finish. Beckham uses her fashion line as a sounding board to communicate woman need to be taken seriously in the business world. This girl boss doesn't need to be dressed top-to-toe in black or dark hues, but rather, she can have fun with colour!
Speaking of girl bosses, Kendall and Kylie Jenner presented a cheeky and eye-catching mix of designs in their show. Sleek bodysuits, leopard print playsuits, corseted t-shirts, and neon mesh tops, all pay homage to the sexy vibes these sisters consistently radiate.
With only a few days left of NYFW make sure to keep up-to-date with the fashion lines remaining like Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Delpozo and Bonnie Young still to present on the runway!
