New York Summary Day 5

IT SEEMS THAT SPRING/SUMMER 2016 IS THE SEASON OF ANNIVERSARIES. AFTER HERVÉ LÉGER’S 30TH AND ALEXANDER WANG’S 10TH, PHILIP LIM’S TURN TO CELEBRATE A DECADE IN THE BUSINESS CAME ON THE FIFTH DAY OF NEW YORK FASHION WEEK.

The day started effortlessly elegant with Carolina Herrera, who staged her show at the Frick Collection, an art museum that has never been open to fashion shows until now. High-tech materials met discreet yet flirtatious dresses and underlined Herrera’s modern approach to her well-established Upper East Side chic.

Downtown, on the contrary, 3.1 Phillip Lim celebrated a dirty bash. A seed in a mound of compost, symbolizing both rebirth and new beginnings, was Lim’s starting point. Earthy hues and olive shades set the tone and known silhouettes from past collections were slipped in. A standout white wrap dress with twisted details went next to draped tops and skirts. This collection was, in fact, a wrap.

The first look at the Thom Browne collection revealed a uniformity that was somewhat exceptional. And whereas this collection was dedicated to a meeting of Japanese schoolgirl and Geisha aesthetics, Reem Acra showed us that exotic inspiration can also be flamboyant. The Lebanese designer invited her audience on a journey through her own life, presenting a collection that combined her past and present life. With a main focus on belts, a personal collector’s passion from earlier days, the collection had a heavy Aladdinesque touch brought to the next level and into this decade.

Zac Posen had a quite surprising lot in store for the upcoming season: „We’ve had so much red carpet, it got to the point that I wanted to give a proposition for my friends and customers during the day“, the designer explained and started to infuse his label with a new direction without ever renouncing evening wear.
