NYFW: Our Favourite Collections

Happy Sunday everyone!

Last week we talked our favourite street style looks from New York fashion week, so it's only fair to round up the week with 3 of our favourite shows and collections each. Believe us, it was so hard to narrow it down to only 3 each, so read on to see what we were loving for NYFW!

Kate Spade 
A rainbow of colours and embellishments made up Kate Spade's S/S17 collection. As well as their holiday wardrobe inspired clothing, I fell in love with their accessories. As a tassel embellishment lover this collection was an instant win. In true Kate Spade style many pints and patterns featured in the show from feminine floral to fun stripes making this collection guaranteed to inject some personality into your wardrobe.

Vera Wang
 Vera Wang’s monochrome collection added some stylish edge to NY fashion week. The off-the-shoulder silhouette trend that is circulating the fashion world was prominent in the collection, the peplum waist also made a few appearances. This collection stood out to me as many other shows featured vibrant and neon colours making this collection somewhat more striking, and who can go wrong with monochrome?

Michael Costello 
Michael Costello has come a long way since his project runway days, his Spring Summer Collection theme was “Midnight Botanical Bash” the rich colour scheme of deep purple, red and green bought life to his theme. The ultra feminine collection included lace bodices, flowing fabric and floral embellishment; the collection was complete with oversized flower crowns. This collection will make anyone want to up their evening wardrobe.

Rebecca Minkoff
I’ve loved Rebecca Minkoff's bags for years now and only really looked at her show because of this, but I’m so glad I did!  Her use of staple pieces and classic shapes in dark colours is brilliant (despite it being a spring/summer collection - if you’re like me and wear black all year round, then you’ll approve too!) as you can really imagine yourself wearing these clothing and bag designs. Minkoff used the backdrop of a SoHo street for her catwalk collection and paid homage to New York using the personalisation of leather jackets which was such a cute idea.


J.Crew showed their signature style in this season’s collection, with menswear-esque tailored shirts, wrap-around skirts and relaxed, draped material in a white, blue, pink and khaki toned palette. I personally love this muted palette with pops of bright pink (those pom-pom bags are so cute!) and bold use of denim in the first look. They have the balance just right for mixing up tailored and relaxed styles, making this collection ultra ‘shoppable’. Models included family and friends of those who work at the company and shown in the informal style that J.Crew love, in a relaxed presentation rather than a catwalk.


Marchesa are well known for their rose-tinted, fairytale vibe dresses and whilst not exactly a clothing brand anyone can pull off for day-to-day wear, but one that I always look out for when red-carpet season rolls around. Marchesa always create beautifully detailed and feminine collections, and this season’s is no exception, with ethereal and subtle colours in tulle (lots of it) and embellishment. Inspired from a "dawn til’ dusk” colour palette, all pieces in the collection follow this pattern of the rising sun: starting with iridescent pinks and ending in black.

Now that New York fashion week has come to an end, fashion's busiest month continues with the runway shows and presentations now in full swing in London, and we can't wait to share with you our favourite collections from some of the best British designers. 
Until Next Week,
