They're in! The slip dress trend is back from the 90's and the fashion industry just cant get enough of them. Rodriguez's theme of neutral and basic colors was intriguing due to the fact that the outfits were wearable on a daily basis, not just on the runway. The excution of the layering in this outfit is perfect, as the slip dress underneath reveals the model's figure, but it also provides extra coverage with a sheer midi-dress over it.
Alexander Wang never fails to exceed expectations and always brings a refreshing light to his audience. As one of my personal favorite designers, Wang used mainly various toes of black and navy, and he made it work perfectly.
The grid black and white plaid is also making a return. This also goes along with an increase in women's tailored items, such as pants. These looks are so modernly edgy, and they're hard not to love!
It's the most important and influential week for the fashion industry. Some of the world's most creative artists come together to showcase their new clothes, as well as new trends! These are my personal favorites from the New York City runways.
I have a great appreciation for outfits based around minimalism that can also be stylish at the same time. Narcisco Rodriguez provided prime examples of how to stick with the basic colors while using different textures and contrasting colors to give off your own personal statement. This all-neutral outfit is not even close to boring. Rodriguez paired an unsurprising grey and black together, but used them beautifully to draw the eyes to the unique shoes. The contrast of the grey wool and the camel-colored suede is used to pull the whole outfit together in the end.
Coach took more of a high-fashion and avant-garde approach. Through many of their outfits, it can be concluded that bomber jackets, patches, and floral will continue to make a statement in fashion. I absolutely love the mix of vintage and modern trends on Coach's runway.
Jonathan Simkhai absolutely killed the runway. His line was definitely in the top, as he created a Victorian style in the form of modern wear. The details in his work are astonishing and are not easily replicated. The use of cutouts and shapes in Simkhai's clothing are exquisitely tailored, and the lace is beautifully placed in a well-thought-out manner.
