Honestly, we waited quite a bit with our first fashion week report because few collections seemed to blow our minds. New York and London have never been the most exciting amongst fashion weeks… but this year it seemed to be worse. Or is it just a personal problem we’re coping with? The same old ruffles, flowers, streetwear gone wrong or boring black & white combinations passed by. It almost made us yawn. Thank the Patron Saint of RTW that there were actually some highlights.
Our dearest Marc was one of the brightest stars the past week. And it made us smile to see that the Godfather of funky American design is back after a few weaker seasons. Color blocking, streetwear elements, turbans, flower prints, sequins… brought in his very own way. We liked! Looks: Roksanda, Delpozo, Victoria Beckham, Derek Lam
We’re not her biggest fans. Which doesn’t mean we totally dislike Victoria Beckham or her collections. She just never managed to make us totally fall in love. Nor did she this season but we have to admit, there was a spark. The traditional secretary look got a tailored, slightly slouchy upgrade. Soft pastel shades got mixed with the basics and an occasional flashy touch.
Look: Victoria Beckham
Raf Simons built further on his All-American story for Calvin Klein. We were a big fan of his fw17 collection so we still are now. However we did miss a few new elements. Look: Calvin KleinLooks: Marc Jacobs, Versus Versace, Erdem
Clean, yet not too basic, sober but not boring. Delpozo was all about the keeping a balance. Designer Josep Font got inspired by Maria Svarbova’s Swimming Pool series and Spanish-American bandleader Xavier Nugat. A not so obvious pairing that turned into a beautiful result. Definitely one of our fashion week favorites so far. Look: Delpozo
