New York Day 4

THE FOURTH DAY PRESENTED ITSELF IN FULL BLOOM, TAKING US TO THE PEAK OF NEW YORK FASHION WEEK. WE SAW A REVIVAL OF 1970’S VIBES AND ALL AMERICAN GIRL ATTITUDES THAT WERE THE BIGGEST FOCUS OF THE DAY.

Victoria Beckham kicked off the fourth day of New York Fashion Week with a collection that was made to feel fresh and carefree. It introducing elements of abstraction and simplicity that set it apart, perfect for any confident women who does not need to show off luxury in an obvious way. Combining playfulness with sophistication, the Victoria Beckham client will be happy about this season’s offers.

Derek Lam found inspiration in the television role of Nina Simone, in “What happened Miss Simone?” an independent American documentary. Inspired by this role he presented timeless classics, such as trench coats, but Lam knew how to spice it up and showed modern midi knit dresses and layered silhouettes that added a more experimental approach to his usual luxe sportswear aesthetic. In the meantime Thakoon called his lineup a vision of the “New Bohemia” that consisted of bleached denim, printed silk and shimmering plissé. It was a very elegant approach to the hippie look and definitely a new one. And what is not to love about breathing new life into our wardrobes? Thakoon’s the new bohemia is definitely worth a try – not only for daytime.

Diane von Furstenberg staged an all-american girl attitude and started the show with a signature wrap dress. Karlie Kloss, her curly hair decorated with floral brooches, was sent down the runway in a dress with eccentric prints that provided for a happy go lucky attitude. Interrupted by sheer and shiny surfaces the show went on with summer tweeds and raw linen. Without challenging its signature, Spring/Summer 2016 felt refreshingly new for the house of DVF. At Edun, Kuba Kingdom costumes were the starting point for Danielle Sherman. With a strong focus on bringing sustainability to high-fashion, the label is manufacturing and producing in Africa. Contrast stitching and African inspired kaftan shapes went hand in hand with the off shoulder trend, which has features heavily across runways recently. Standout macramé dresses and pocket details provided for a tribal vibe.

After the April earthquake in Nepal, Prabal Gurung was faithfully raising funds for his home country and thanked his customers and fan base for their support with “a personal gesture of gratitude”. His Spring/Summer 2016 collection shone with vibrant sunny hues from citrus yellow to burnt orange that were inspired by his childhood memories in Nepal. His collection was also set apart by the use of Nepalese jewellery and handmade knits from Nepal. What a graceful show of thanks it was.
