New York Fashion Week SS17 - My Highlights

It's started, the semi-annual, month-long fashion showcase. London Fashion Week is in full swing and New York has come to an end. Here are just a few of my personal highlights from NY Fashion Week which might just be making an impact on my wardrobe.

Prabal Gurung

His philosophy has always been modern, luxurious, style and glamour which he continues to give us season after season. I adore the mixture of thin textured knits and plush silk, particularly on the blocked dresses with the slightly off matching colour. Also, the shoes, THE SHOES.

Victoria Beckham

Her latest collection appears to be more relaxed. The wide legged slacks, deconstructed collar lines (my personal favourite detail in the collection and one to watch for the season), casual pleated skirts and colourful knitted dresses. Several of the pieces appear to be versatile with the ability to layer them and that for me, is a complete bonus.

Carolina Herrera

Deconstructed shoulder lines, nipped in waists and tiered skirts or dresses...Carolina Herrera picks up on some key themes scene across the week. With hints of that classic 80s androgyny in the silhouettes of several pieces whilst holding a feminine elegance. I'm a sucker for a staple wardrobe and a girl can't do without a classic summer dress.

Oscar de la Renta

They may have lost Peter Copping as Creative Director earlier this year, not long after Oscar de la Renta's passing, yet those at the helm closing the gap for when Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia start were able to stick to the roots of the fashion house - beautifully striking evening gowns. The exaggerated ruffles, layers and playful sleeves are something to adore.
