Today, I bring you New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2013-2014 and a look at some of my favorite shows from the Big Apple...
Marc Jacobs RTW Fall/Winter 2013-2014
After a black and white clear-cut collection for Spring/Summer 2013, Marc Jacobswanted to dive into the greyer areas of life for Fall/Winter 2013-2014. The designer showed a collection that mixed and matched the simple with the elegant and even the wild, as models walked the atypical catwalk in mohair sweaters and silky tops or glimmering sequins and fox furs over high-waisted hot pants.
Tommy Hilfiger RTW Fall/Winter 2013-2014
“Savile Row meets Ivy League” was the theme at Tommy Hilfiger Fall/Winter 2013-2014 as all types of prepster patterns took stage. In menswear suiting materials and English heritage fabrics, London tailored looks had an American feel as the schoolgirl style blended into a structured workingwoman’s ensemble.
Victoria Beckham RTW Fall/Winter 2013-2014
Victoria Beckham presented a standout collection at New York Fashion Week this season. While maintaining Posh Spice’s iconic sex appeal, models in menswear inspirations and longer lengths than usual had vibrant block colours and prints splashed over the dolman-sleeve tops that have been spotted across many runways for Fall/Winter 2013-2014.
Diane von Furstenberg RTW Fall/Winter 2013-2014
Models with fresh, pretty make-up, hair loose at their shoulders and smiling faces walked the catwalk for Diane von Furstenberg Fall/Winter 2013-2014. In suede, leopard print and bright colours Diane von Furstenberg reverted to her roots, paying homage to her famous wrap dress.
Prabal Gurung RTW Fall/Winter 2013-2014
The warrior women of Prabal Gurung’s Fall/Winter 2013-2014 collection were buckled head-to-toe with harnessed chests and legs wrapped in belts. Mixing and matching fabrics the designer presented a hardware heavy, military-inspired collection.
And a bonus collection that I particularly enjoyed...
J. Crew RTW Fall/Winter 2013-2014
Synonymous with American preppy staples, J. Crew designer Tom Mora found a way to add some eclecticism to the classic cuts. Inspired by a recent trip to Morocco, his collection of girly embellishments with boyish cuts for Fall/Winter 2013/2014 appeared in vibrant colours, Moroccan rug prints and sparkling arabesques.
