Ralph Lauren is always known for transporting us to another world with his fashion shows and this season was all about wearable glamour that comes together with big, clean lines and iconic silhouettes. The looks featured ample amounts of contrast, from crisp white-on-white to stark black and gold, wide-legged pants next to body-hugging dresses and crop tops worn under oversized blazers. Even the most glamorous pieces made from gold lamé felt somehow effortless and it all stayed very true to Ralph Lauren’s dreamy and timeless vision. The standout piece was definitely the dramatic gold cape that closed the show.
As always, Ulla Johnson’s clothes are defined by the way she combines bold patterns and statement colors so well, and this show was no different. The pieces were feminine and flirty without being too fussy, making each look decidedly wearable. Earth tones crafted in crochet and silky styles with ruffles, puffed-sleeves and pin-tucking details throughout felt true to Ulla Johnson’s unique spin on ready-to-wear. Dresses with oversized sleeves and the shearling statement coats absolutely dominated the show.
The Khaite show took us right into fall in the best way possible. Each look felt like an elevated take on classic American style, think: looks we’ve all worn before, but better. Pieces were cut from wardrobe staples like cottons, wools and a ton of leathers, but updated in more modern silhouettes. Everything was so beautiful, especially all of the oversized sleeves and shoulders that added drama and femininity to the styles. Suede fringe was an unexpected touch and the entire collection felt like a perfect crisp, fall day in the city.
