TOP TRENDS FROM NEW YORK FASHION WEEK 2016
The NYC runways have been flowing with fiercely fresh collections, as our beloved designers raise the bar on themselves and reimagine the possibilities. These are the trends that top our list
The Cold Shoulder
Perhaps taking cues from what was popular in the retail world this summer, more than a few designers showcased tops and dresses with cold shoulder silhouettes for Spring 2016.
Velvet, a timelessly luxe fabric, showed no signs of going away this season. Most notably, designer Phillip Lim gave velvet a refreshing spin by combining the (typically) stand-alone fabric with a printed silk material. Labels like Monse and M. Martin experimented with shades ranging from blush pink to olive green.
The Puffy Shirt
Designers clearly were catching up on “Seinfeld” reruns while conceptualizing their spring lines, given the fact that white ruffled blouses—reminiscent of the show’s infamous “puffy shirt”—made numerous runway appearances.
The Oxford shirt got a much needed revamp this season with feathers, slashes and embellishments.
We saw it last spring, we saw it this fall, and it looks like it’s sticking around for spring 2016. We’re referring to fringe, which several designers employed to trim skirts and dresses. The beauty of this trend lies in its softness—think the ends of a velvet scarf or macrame rather than western-style fringe.
70′s are back with the bang. Experience and experiment with the bursts of color in tie dye pieces. We loved the dyed prints in Altuzarra collection. They are multicolor but tasteful and work great as statement and everyday pieces. A more understated tie dye clothes can be found in Trace Reese collection. Sophisticated and subtle as tie dye can be.
Compared to seasons past, designers seemed much more self-aware in terms of branding and logos. At DKNY, Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne showed tees and deconstructed oxford shirts printed with “Insert Logo Here,” and at Alexander Wang, models walked out with shirts emblazoned with words like “tender,” “girls” and “strict” that recalled Supreme’s famous box logos.
We love the idea of wearing sequins just because. No need to have a special reason or occasion. Sequin tank dresses are a hit but you can also rock the jackets, the skirts, or simply clothes with sequin elements all day everyday wherever and whenever you feel like it. We are loving this freedom fashion.
