NYFW SS 17: 11th & 12th

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

Tome had this Queen of Hearts vibe throughout the entire collection, making good use of geometric prints, a unique plaid and floral combination, and stripes from thin pinstripes to Beetlejuice lengths. Dramatic ruffles appeared alongside metallic foiled fabric, making wrinkles fashionable (one could only hope...). In their fifth season, the men behind Tome stuck to their black and white routes, adding in pops of punchy colors when needed.

Victoria Beckham stuck to her usual modest hemlines, sending models down the runway in metallic silver garments and crushed velvet in every hue. Accordion pleats appeared alongside bubble skirts for sleek and often asymmetrical cuts.

Proenza Schouler took to the spring/summer collections with primary colors and simple geometric prints, adding on feathers and ruffles to make it look like a very high-end and glamorous elementary school project in the best way possible. Between structured garments with rippled fabric, knots and bows, licorice colored leather, boxy and easy shapes, each piece had a unique simplicity to it. The pieces, already art themselves, also featured graphics of actual pieces of art, ornate marble statues and busts printed onto the fabric.

Rag and Bone gave off a sort of university vibes from the 90s, with varsity sweaters, oxford tunics, schoolboy blazers, tapered jeans, baggy jackets in red, white, blue with some touches of olive green.

Oscar de la Renta showed off figure skimming garments shown with handkerchief hemlines, grecian gold accents, beading, thick cut lace, sheer gauzy sleeves, tulle, feathers and frayed chiffon for plenty of volume and texture.

Carolina Herrera stuck to classic elegance, using simplistic colors in sharp and smart cuts. Pops of color came in with subdued and demure floral prints on gorgeous silk and medium wash denim with bright white stitching.

Erin Fetherston reverted from flirty cuts to more relaxed long and loose garments. These easy looks went down the runway in gorgeous silver and blush shades, in silk, beads and sequins, using chartreuse alongside black and white to inject some color into the collection.

Jenny Packham said cohesion be damned and used her distinct creative elements and style (embellishments on embellishments on embellishments) to create a "collection" to fit the mood, tone and idea of different types of women.
