NYFW SS 16 DAY FOUR

Monday, September 14, 2015

We're halfway through NYFW and my mind has been blown far too many times to count, which isn't at all shocking. I am permanently the heart eyes emoji during fashion month, it's a known fact. I am constantly amazed by fashion and how designers bang out two collections a year with the same cohesion, yet a discernible difference to keep it interesting.

Looks 4 and 8 from Victoria Beckham
If I hadn't seen the name of the designer when I clicked on the slideshow for this collection, I would have never associated Victoria Beckham with this collection. It's so vastly different than her usual runway presence. It has a relaxed feel with loose, flowing fabric. It's casual, cool comfort as opposed to the cocktail chic vibe she tends to lean toward.

Looks 4, 7, 8, and 17 from Rachel Zoe
Rachel Zoe might just be my aesthetic. Her looks are always so clean cut and put together, yet manage to have that chill California feel. The teals, pinks, and yellows used to offset the neutrals in this collection reminded me of mermaids, sort of like the jewel toned shades for spring.

Looks 7 and 20 from Thakoon
Tie-dye and acid print was alive with the sound of music in Thakoon's spring collection. There also appeared to be runway ready pajamas, which I am 100% in support of. #ALLTHEJAMMIES

Looks 5, 9, 15, and 38 from Diane von Furstenberg
Wrap me up in DVF, honestly. My thrifted DVF shift dress is still one of my favorite things that I own today. Diane has a way of making you look and feel like the most luxurious and fabulous woman in the world. Everything down to the hair and makeup for this show was on point. I loved the mixed patterns, the inclusion (but not overwhelming nature) of the iconic wrap dress, and the grecian elements thrown in at the end. What a show! I would've killed to see this one live.


Looks 4, 8, 10, 19, 26, and 34 from Jenny Packham
Jenny Packham's show had its fair share of spring florals, embellished dresses, and voluminous skirts. I loved the mixture of cheeky dresses, long gowns, and the ever-so-chic pantsuits.

Looks 2, 34, and 36 from Prabal Gurung
The Prabal Gurung show seemed to play with fire, in the color scheme sense. With brightly colored yellow, orange, and red garments, the runway ignited with separates, gowns, and body-skimming ensembles I'd love to see over and over again.

Looks 7, 11, 15, and 19 from Opening Ceremony
I need every pair of sunglasses that appeared in the Opening Ceremony show, okay? Everything about this collection had me going. There were some incredible pants, both tailored and billowy. There was some incredible structure to some of the tops and I loved the overall tan/white/black/yellow motif throughout a majority of the first half of the collection. Colors typically associated for fall, like navy and burnt orange, took front and center toward the end of the show. It was incredible, through and through. 

What were your favorite looks from Sunday's shows?
