As we watch Milan Fashion Week from afar, we are still analyzing our favorite shows that closed NYFW! So here we are for our quick hits #3.
Oscar de la Renta
Plaid for fall is like floral for spring, not too groundbreaking, but we’ll gladly welcome it back year after year. Oscar de la Renta’s plaid looks were unique, full of texture and eased us into the rest of the collection that was quintessential “fall.” Quilted styles and amber hues were memorable, but nothing as memorable as the dresses that walked the end of the show. As to be expected, the gowns were total showstoppers!
The silhouettes that walked the Michael Kors runway were heavy with vibes from the 1970s, think: jumpsuits, flares and slinky dresses. Men and women walked the runway, which added a unique twist and ode to the era. Both sexes wore a rendition of a Studio 54 graphic top, incase it wasn’t obvious (it was!) that the famed club’s prime was the inspiration for this collection. Looks were accented with metallics, feathers and boas for playful touches that got everyone in the mood for a good night out.
Bright, silky looks usually reserved for spring were out in full force at Prabal Gurung’s fall runway show that was inspired by a recent trip to India. Oversized ruffles added drama and deep cutouts were fun elements that showed off Gurung’s ability to master proportions. The electric hues were the most memorable in the perfect shades of reds, pinks, blues and yellows.
Oversized plaids made their mark on the opening looks of Staud’s fall collection. The outfits were uniquely wearable and had a sense of ease about them. The colors were upbeat and playful, adding to the cheery vibe of the entire show. The looks were accessorized with memorable handbags that are on their way to achieving cult status as we speak.
