New York Fashion Week is underway and we couldn’t be more in love with what the designers had to show for Spring-Summer 2016. We think it will be a crazy season, able to offer something for every taste and preference. Because images from the shows are still freshly imprinted in our memories, we’ll make a point of underlining what we think it’s essential for all the brands that just got off the #NYFW runways and are present in our curated gallery of designer sunglasses.
Celebrating the label’s 10th anniversary, Phillip Lim cited all his signature designs while still presenting them in a way that felt fresh and new: he took sporty and/or masculine looks and infused them with a sense of romance in the most poetic way.
Karen Walker developed a folksy, seemingly ethnic collection, mixing them with high-tech, innovative interventions, all centered around 80’s glamour. Her main source of inspiration, as she put it, was a stack of random old photos. “We came across these photos, taken in the ’80s, of this unmarked town just north of Moscow called Star City, that was a secret military training base for the Soviet Union’s space program. And there were all these photos of these funny, folksy, chintzy Russian sitting rooms but with space suits and space gloves.” Karen Walker expressed herself with no limitation while still designing a wearable collection.
With Thom Browne there isn’t much space for interpretation. He’s all about silhouettes, embellishments and presentation. For #SS16 he made us fall in love with a hypnotizing show of Japanese schoolgirls dressed with whimsy and wit in the most refined fashion.
For Prabal Gurung, #SS16 was all about reminiscing of the 7.9 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal on April 25 this year. Together with the Shikshya Foundation Nepal, he managed to raise a million dollars to help the quake’s victims. The designer confessed to being inspired by the work of artist Laxman Shreshtha which he alternated with minimal looks in a most sensational and brightly colored collection.
Just imagine watching TV, answering emails and glossing Instagram, all at the same time. This is exactly how we felt watching Jeremy Scott’s latest collection with its digital trippy prints. The eye-popping collection that follows a line of classic shapes, has an aesthetic approach that was built as homage to the sixties sci-fi and B-movies seen trough the club-kid flash lenses so characteristic to Scott.
With a life full of nonstop travels, Victoria Beckham designed for #SS16 a fresh and carefree collection, making things all about attitude. In an utterly discreet manner, Beckham dressed the runway in a sophisticated, yet understated fashion, with luxurious, smooth and flowing fabrics and textures.
As always we’re curious to know what is your favorite collection from those listed above. Are you classic or eclectic, feminine or minimalist, or maybe a little bit of everything depending on the mood? 😉
