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.

Marc Jacobs

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! SS18 runway looksLooks: Roksanda, Delpozo, Victoria Beckham, Derek Lam

Victoria Beckham

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.

Calvin Klein

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. Calvin Klein SS18Look: Calvin KleinSS18 runway looksLooks: Marc Jacobs, Versus Versace, Erdem

Delpozo

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. Delpozo SS18Look: Delpozo
