It may be all about London now, with designers models and fashionistas flocking to the shows in the UK capital this week. But what kind of fashion blog would we be if we didn’t spend a bit of time reflecting on all the amazing creations which were sent down the catwalks at New York Fashion Week just a few days ago?
We’ll start with the frankly amazing Marc by Marc Jacobs show which saw Brit designing talents Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier revealing their debut collection. The look was youthful, edgy, dynamic; in short everything we love and drew inspiration from sources as varied and eclectic as anime, race car driving and Wednesday Adams. As usual our eyes were firmly focused on the footwear and the stacked trainers did not disappoint.
Speaking of footwear, we spent much of last week drooling over Marchesa’s collaboration with shoe god Christian Louboutin. The futuristic heels almost threatened to overshadow the clothes, especially an intricate pair of red velvet lace-up wedges and some beautiful beaded evening shoes.
We also loved seeing Victoria Beckham’s line. Like Posh herself, the clothes were chic, classic and elegant. They were largely in her favourite shade; black, but there were splashes of red to liven up proceedings and one multi-coloured midi skirt we’ll definitely be searching for a high street version of.
As usual we could go on for hours about all the stunning designs we were wowed by at New York Fashion Week, but why not take a look for yourself at some of the highlights?
Trends to take from NYFW
If you want to inject some New York glamour into your wardrobe, here are a few key trends from NYFW.
1 – Glitter; metallics and sparkles as seen at Marc by Marc Jacobs and 3.1 Phillip Lim.
2 – Daring necklines; designers seemed to be competing to see how low they could go with plunging necklines. Invest in some double sided sticky tape pronto if you plan to embrace this trend.
3 – White; avoid messy foods in autumn/winter 14 as the hottest colour of the season is pure sparkling white.
