Favourites: NYFW AW13

Saturday, 16 February 2013

After recently going on a 10-day trip to New York and falling in love with the city, I would have done anything to be back for New York Fashion Week! I didn't manage to watch any of the shows online however, I did trawl through websites and blogs looking for my favourite collections. I've put together 3 of my favourite catwalk looks for several designers below...

Alexander Wang
This collection certainly looked very cosy with range of balaclavas and hoods. I loved the use of grey, leather and fur together. I can't wait to see what happens over at Balenciaga in Paris at the end of the month.

Tibi's A/W 2013 collection was gorgeous - lots of leather, big knits, turtlenecks, monochrome and khaki. Lots of the pairings seemed so wearable too... can't wait to be wearing some of these trends this Autumn.
The Row
The Olsen's line didn't disappoint this season. Again, lots of monochrome and ivories were debuted and of course, fur trimmings and coats. Wardrobe staples were reworked and the silhouette was loose, comfortable and had a pyjama loungewear element to some of the looks.

3.1 Phillip Lim
To me, this collection was really exciting. Slouchy leathers contrasted against looks of fitted tailoring and different textures were paired together. We saw strong separates in traditional plaids, furs and leathers.

Proenza Schouler
Clean cuts and straight lines were the focus of this season's collection. I love the use of monochrome and the all white looks which are fresh and minimal. There was a wide use of texture and the touch of feathers bring an unusual shape to some of the looks.

I'm going to do a post like this for London, Milan and Paris over the next few weeks too. Oh how I wish I was in London right now, soaking up the atmosphere outside Somerset House and watching some shows but i'm ill and have a huge pile of History and Art coursework to get done for next week.
