Alas, my friends, another New York Fashion Week has come and gone. Today (September 11) marks the final day of this grand event, meaning that Fashion Month is now officially in full swing. But before we al turn our eyes towards London, I wanted to take a moment today to share just a few (trust me, there are more) of my personal highlights from this NYFW:
Mesh Galore at Sachin and Babi: There was plenty of mesh and perforated detailing to be seen this past week, but my personal favorite example was at Sachin and Babi. This up-and-coming husband and wife team managed to make the sporty detailing not only über-chic but also surprisingly feminine. Sign me up!
Buckles at Derek Lam 10 Crosby: Derek Lam gave spring’s military motif an equestrian vibe with his heavy usage of leather buckles. I don’t know about you, but this collection had me wishing I owned more belts…
Gingham at Diane von Fürstenberg: Although I would generally turn up my nose at this elementary school-esque print, DVF gives it an incredibly sophisticated vibe when done in a breezy maxi, a pair of shorts, and, of course, a classic wrap.
Dress Heaven at Oscar de la Renta: As per usual, the Oscar de la Renta runway was home to a plethora of stunning dresses. This season, his variety of silhouettes and fabrics was what left me yearning for more. Now if only I had somewhere really, really nice to go…
As much as I am looking forward to seeing what comes out of London this coming week, I cannot help but feel a twinge of nostalgia over this past New York Fashion Week. It most certainly was a good one, with dazzling collection after dazzling collection being paraded down the runways. As hard as it may be to let go of what has been an amazing week for the fashion world, at least we still have another three weeks of Fashion Month left! London, Milan, Paris, here we come!
What were some of your favorite moments from NYFW? Are there any shows in particular that you can’t wait to see in the coming weeks?
