The new suiting, Americana for a modern era and fresh takes on femininity. This is the best of New York Fashion Week.
It’s getting dark.
An army of models in a sea of black and grey. Alexander Wang AW 17 saw leather pants, boots, jackets and a new hair cut for RUSSH girl Catherine McNeil.
The first show under creative director Raf Simons. Double denim, plastic coating and prints injected a jolt of modern electricity through the otherwise structured work attire.
Crushed velvet, grey-hued yellow silk pieces and coats of all shapes and sizes. Gabriela Hearst’s AW 17 collection was a true mix of sensibility and desire.
Beauty defined by tumbling waves and fiery shadow. It was eyes to kill at Simon Miller AW 17.
Lace me up.
Inspired by the Renaissance. Heavy detailing, corset features and rich fabrics, delivered through supreme tailoring.
The shocking slash of bright red lipstick, the ease of brushed up eyebrows. The barefaced beauty with a bold lip look at the Jason Wu show was a realistic inspiration for the coming colder months.
Masculine and feminine collide. Strong silhouettes and architectural shapes, earthy tones and surprising hints of patent leather.
Deceptively simple and inarguably romantic. Refreshing ease for Brock Collection AW 17.
In her eyes.
Well-groomed eyebrows stole the show. With a smear of blue-grey eyeshadow making an occasional appearance, simplicity is still Beckham’s secret weapon.
Featuring shearlings, earthy tones and plaid, Coach’s fascination with America holds true for AW 17. Welcome to the Old West.
Chains, velvet and surprising pops of colour graced the Dion Lee AW 17 runway.
Feline eyes, flashes of red and metallic nails. We’re going out tonight.
Metallics, animal print, voluminous leather and deconstructed tailoring. Hear her roar.
3.1 PHILLIP LIM
Feminine strength. Strong lines, romantic gatherings and an array of boots that stole the show.
OSCAR DE LA RENTA
All about the eyes. Two-toned and layered up. It’s time to play in the shadows.
The last NYFW show for the iconic duo. Wrap-style dresses, vinyl, metallic and cut-away shapes for Proenza Schouler AW 17.
Liberty in the city.
Make America New York. Street style sportswear meets political statement for Public School AW 17.
Sculpt the eyes. From electric blue to forest green, architectural shapes are key – the only accompaniment being a light rub of rouge.
Earthy tones and textures characterised Ralph Lauren’s AW 17 collection. Sophistication and fluidity for the new nomadic woman.
Fluid lines and warm hues. Area’s AW 17 collection spoke of a casual, confident sexiness, illustrated through uncomplicated silk slips, thrown on fur jackets and asymmetrical clothing.
Bare it all.
Faux or free. Eyes were framed by large false lashes or nothing at all. It was the skin that mattered most on these clean, fascinating faces.
Curves of colour and line, distinguishably feminine. I’m every woman.
Zimmerman AW 17 upped the edge, but kept the romance. Striped suiting, lace, ruffles and metallic splashes.
