14.02.2019

Fashion Month is well underway and New York Fashion Week has just brought the freshest breath of fresh air on the fashion scene. A stage for emerging talents, a platform where diversity and inclusivity are promoted and turned to USPs, this is where to come to witness the trends that will take next, and will stick!

We have collected the best moments as well some of cutest New York Fashion Week StreetStyle looks.

Alessandro Trincone’s tulle opulence

When singer DreamDoll closed the show for Italian designer Alessandro Trincone we did have a bit of deja vu feeling, and Viktor&Rolf’s ‘fashion statement’ presented during Paris Fashion Week came to mind. In his ‘FW19/20 “Anveilmi” the designer, who grew up in the outskirts of Naples, put all of those layers of tulle the Dutch brand used as canvas for their ‘statements’ (read more here), and turned them into voluminous dresses, jumpsuits, skirts and head pieces.

More Tulle for Tomo Koizumi

Japanese dress/costume designer Tomo Koizumi went too for the light volumes of tulle but inspired by his heritage and following his aesthetic, he shaped the light and sheer fabric into soft flowers. His dresses have a bit of the architecture of ancient royal costumes and the tones of Rothko and O’Keeffe paintings, all traits celebs of the like of actress Gwendoline Christie have embraced.

And even more Tulle at Christian Siriano

Did he go a long way after winning the fourth season of Project Runway? Yes, simply put. His label is now worth millions and he is now a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. What was on his catwalk for this New York Fashion Week show? As you have probably guessed already, plenty of tulle, as in mega skirts you’d see on some very princess-like wedding dresses, except Siriano’s garments were far from white fairy tales wonderlands pieces; he chose violet, purple and an array of bold colours to celebrate femininity.

Neutrals plus mustard yellow for Noon By Noor

Bahrain based label has reached international fame thanks to the talent of cousins and friends Shaikha Noor Al Khalifa and Shaikha Haya Al Khalifa; their understated luxury doesn’t lack vibrancy, which is conveyed by clean and polished lines, flowy pleated skirts and satin dresses, the palatable fashion treats for any woman out there. Their vision for FW2019 collection was to match black and neutrals with the boldness of mustard yellow, and the final result was delightful.

Jeremy Scott is still fashion’s last rebel

Moschino’s creative director has proved to be yet again one of the most irreverent designers in fashion history with his collections of ‘Headlines’; black and white newspapers lettering as ‘scandal’ or ‘The End is Near’ featured on black and white punk-ish garments, matched with Dr Martens combat boots.

Zimmermann’s Eye Spy

“I was thinking about the world of espionage and came across the story of the Nancy Wake, who grew up in Australia, and later became a spy in Europe during WW2. Known as the White Mouse – because she was so hard to catch – Wake became a leading figure in the French resistance, assisting the escape of the thousands of persecuted people and later working as an operative of the Allied forces. For me the work of a spy evoked a mood of subterfuge and sabotage’ stated Creative Director, Nicky Zimmermann

What was NYFW Streetstyle game?

What to wear in NY? What to wear in NY when it is fashion week? These two questions alone would give anyone wardrobe nightmares, yet, when you go snooping around to see what’s been worn up and down the streets of New York, it all seem so damn effortlessly. As in this super cute oversized jumper, completely covered in … you guessed, tulle.

Does this look like a middle of February outfit? Nope. But Aimee Songs has got fashion to worry about, not what temperature it is she might risk frostbite. Those boots and that skirt are the symbol of New York Fashion Week streetstyle; urban, edgy and feminine.
