This was Alexandra Wang’s last show on the New York Fashion Week calendar. The show took place at the old Conde Nast offices in Times Square, the place where he showed his first collection.
The collection featured tailored 80s style suiting, leather bodycon and trench coats. This minimalist monochrome look, with injections of hot pink, was worn with sheer hosiery and stiletto shoes. There was also a Matrix edge with small sunglasses worn with Wang’s sportswear.
The collection represented the state of America and models came down the runway walking on popcorn. America was described on 50 keywords which included the phrases “firefighter,” “freedom”, “civil” and “war.
The collection included prairie-style dress, western shirts, knitwear with motifs of iconic cartoon characters Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote. Lumberjack checks fabric was use for slip dresses and floor-length gowns had American quilts sewn onto them.
Tomas Maier’s collection featured multicolored wool dresses, which were embroided and cut away revealing two layers underneath, chain embroidery with a check print and silk jewel-toned pyjamas.
This was Victoria Beckham’s last collection at New York Fashion Week, she will be swapping New York for London with her next collection.
There were very simple silk dresses that were asymmetrically pleated. Other pieces shown were more complex with multiple layers and textures, with waists drawn in and exaggerated shoulders. The leopard-print coat was one of the standout pieces.
Using herself as the muse, Anna has taken bits and pieces from almost every collection she has showed and juxtaposed them together. The show featured embroidery, beading, knits, custom jewels and sunglasses.
The standout looks were slim jumpsuits in black or neon yellow, a red cardigan with a white blouse and a red beaded skirt, and a draped white top with black trousers. Also, knitwear and a belted blazer, both worn with denim jeans.
