Missed New York Fashion Week? Catch up on the latest with our cheatsheet on all the action on and off the runways.
Our favourite shows….
Proenza Schouler offered some serious chic daywear accented with lacing and thick ribbons (continuing on from spring).
Victoria Beckham made men’s wear fabrics sexy by transforming them into form fitting bustier dresses.
Marc Jacobs sent out glamorous goths – think feathers, sequins, dramatic volumes all in a dark palette of black and grey.
Calvin Klein’s masculine tailoring was the best of the week while the digital fur prints and coats were super chic and made from faux fur.
Altuzarra turned gypsy chic on its head. His signature tailored jackets and skirts were covered in paisleys and florals while his sparkling evening gowns were the best of the week.
Rodarte brought fantasy back to fashion with a dreamy collection offering everything from couture-like embellished dresses and ruffled lace gowns to multi coloured furs.
The big trends…
Fur (both real and faux), preferably decorated with prints.
Masculine-meets-feminine especially when it comes to mannish tailoring (there were lots of suits in men’s wear fabrics including tweed…)
Bomber jackets, although they have been around a few seasons.
Patent leather which was given a more polished edge when mixed with luxe fabrics like shearling as seen at Proenza Schouler.
Camel, although black and white is still proving to be a strong contender.
Metallics which sparkled on suits, dresses and even jumpsuits.
The neck and the shoulders as the new erongenous zones.
Meanwhile everyone was talking about…
Kanye West’s Yeezy show which was held at Madison Square Garden to a crowd of 18,000 people including the Kardashians dressed up in yeti coats. The models, many plucked from the streets, stood still for over 40 minutes while Kanye’s new album, the Life of Pablo played in the background.
Rihanna’s debut for Puma, which apparently was way better than Yeezy in terms of clothes you want to wear (and was talked about more on twitter!)
Lady Gaga walking the catwalk at Marc Jacobs (and looking awesome).
Buy Now looks. After big announcements from Burberry and the like it was only a matter of time before more designers offered pieces to buy straight off the runway including Michael Kors and Rebecca Minkoff.
Former Dries Van Noten alum Sander Lak who debuted his Sies Marjan collection (even Anna Wintour attended his show).
