Two more days to go at NYFW. There’s time yet to solidify a few more trends. Another round of what trends we should be expecting next Spring:
- Monochromatic layering
- Floral prints
- Rock’n’roll references
- Roomy silhouettes
- Lounge-wear inspired pieces (think, silky camis)
- High-waist pants
- White, white, white
Beautiful crochet and serape elements in cool hues started off the show, before expanding on the intricacies of woven fabric both with form and print. Neutral tones closed off the show, with a delicate embroidered silver feather on the front of a simple dress, proving that play can certainly be part of a working uniform.

Polo Ralph Lauren
The actual show almost stole the spotlight from the clothes at Polo Ralph Lauren, where models walked on water in the middle of Central Park via hologram projections. In terms of clothing, Polo delivered trusty Southwestern inspired pieces complete with fringe and prairie dresses and a hint of French flair, a relatable component of the brand.

A wildly imaginative and very targeted collection.

An over-all elegant and refind collection which perfectly appeals to women who have class pinned down perfectly.

Marc by Marc Jacobs
Latex, plastic, polka dots and a strong, independent attitude ruled Jacobs’ runway this season. It was a show of tearing apart and fusing together. Bold pieces justaposed against softer more casual fabrics. This tension and fusion was aptly displayed in patched together dresses consisting of similar but different personalities.

Although slightly confusing in terms of cohesion, Naeem Khan succeeded in delivering an abundance of beautiful evening-wear. Perhaps the confusion arose due to Khan’s introduction of youthful separates that appeal to a different crowd than the one seeking his gown masterpieces. No complaining there, since the clothing held an enormous amount of casual appeal without losing any attention to intricate details.

Back at the helm of Theory, Lisa Kulson cemented her role as provider of “chic, simple, luxurious clothes.” Her approach in evolving Theory is to focus on simplicity and style rather than fleeting trends.

The presentation marked the first time Maison Kitsuné showed at fashion week. The theme was pitched as ‘effortless French’, though in a tongue-in-cheek sort of way. The clothes were cute and very wearable. The feel was cohesive. Overall, there was a lack of oomph, resulting in some boredom when viewing the clothes.

Pedro del Hierro

Citing Marilyn Monroe as the influence, Jenny Packham delivered on sultry, close-fitting silhouettes in a confident and feminine color palette. The frocks were delivered with modern touches and cuts, despite harking back to the past. The particular standouts in the collection were the sleek, intricately beaded and embellished gowns that Packham does extremely well, and the simple pieces focused on enhancing the figure rather than showing off tiny details. The looks falling in between these two extremes seemed out of place and a bit too busy.
