NYFW SS 17: 13th & 14th

Thursday, September 15, 2016

Well guys, we made it. It was the last two days of New York Fashion Week and all I have to show for it are these blog posts. I'm totally kidding. I love watching runway recaps, I love scrolling through Vogue Runway to see new collections, I love seeing the GIFs on Twitter...I just love everything about it so I'm definitely sad to see it go. However, theres's still about three weeks left of the main spring collections, so there's plenty of collections left to see! But let's not get too ahead of ourselves here! First we have to talk about the last two days of NYFW!

J. Crew dressed the normal woman with their spring collection. I loved that the garments were shown on different types of women, from different ages to skin colors to styles and everything in between. It reminded me of 13 Going On 30 when Jenna wants to rebrand the magazine where "real people" are featured on the spreads rather than models. Pom moms adorned garments and accessories alongside frayed tulle rosettes embellished onto garments. Denim made its spring appearance with the ever-so-popular vertical stripes that have appeared in nearly every single spring show thus far. Shoelace details on the waist of knit skirts showed up in the collection with wide legged trousers, monochromatic pink with a splash of tan for a perfect springtime combo. The best part? The shoes. Models wore colorful block heels with satin ribbon wrapped precariously around the ankles like the perfect ballerina pointe.

Whistles combined bold patterns, knit, suede, fringe, tassels all in muted, earthy shades to curate their spring collection. Paperbag waists were feature with embroidered mock necks, cold shoulder knits and kimono wrapped jumpsuits.

Rosie Assoulin's beach backdrop for the spring collection couldn't have been more perfect. Everything seemed to be vacation inspired, from louse, free flowing silhouettes, off-kilter off the shoulder tops and dresses, and all around relaxed fits. Garments consisted of fuchsia and red hawaiian prints, beading and patterns that resembled the top of a beach umbrella.

Vera Wang took monochromatic to a new level, using only black and white to in her simple silhouettes. Everything was very simple and edgy, with dramatically low off-the-shoulder tops, intricate beading to add some depth and detail, peplum hems, trains, sheer full bodied skirts, exposed zippers and long (long long) sleeves. It appeared to be a bit lifeless, from the lack of colors to the model's expressions, but it still made for an interesting show at least.

Alice + Olivia didn't let down in both intricacy or color. The collection featured pieces adorned with floral embellishments, butterfly prints and patches and block stripes. The collection was overall colorful, fun, and punchy with the perfect balance of quirky.

Delpozo filled their spring runway show with garments blown up to dramatic proportions, featuring oversized everything that seemed to double as walking art. Floral print, thick block stripes and solid pastels worked together to create a very voluminous collection full of architectural pieces.

Rodarte injected their typical witchy, super edgy aesthetic into yet another collection. Sheer fabrics were laid with almost gauzy, textured fabric that sort of resembles the fake spider web, studding with fringe that gave off an edgy western vibe, ending the collection with various shades of purple and a gorgeous gold/cream/black combination.

Well, thus concludes New York Fashion Week. See you very soon for London Fashion Week! I'm going to truck along through fashion month!
