NYFW: Highlights

So as much as I would love to sit and review every single collection showcased at fashion week, its just not very realistic, so here our my personal favourite highlights!

Alexander Wang
Dual soundtracks, corrugated ceiling, towering white scaffolding, and an audience split into conflicting sides - the idea being that Wang wanted to discover how differently his collection would be conveyed to each side listening to different soundtracks, one playing calming tones and the other playing 'down and dirty beats'. A colour palette of no more than black, white and cool grey with just hints of baby blue and pale pink. Everything had a crisp masculine edge, with cropped boxy shirts and swinging pleated skirts, to laser-cut leather branded with the designer's logo the duality of masculinity combined with a savvy feminine finish made Alexander Wang's collection a catwalk favourite.

Marc by Marc Jacobs
Despite the transition from one designer to the next, Marc Jacobs pulled out all the stops with his latest collection. Starting with a strong swinging sixties influence moving into a definitive nineties feel, op art prints on slinky jersey fabric were combined with boyish tailoring, pyjama suits and ponyskin hi-tops, finishing with sporty jumpsuits and skater dresses that appeared to have a contradicting hint of Eastern European influence.

Peter Pilotto
Sticking to their signature peplum and ruffle designs, this pair created a collection that oozed bold silhouettes and colour choices taken from volcanic inspiration. Layer upon layer or orchid lace created full flared skirts as part of separates as well as the addition of matching jackets, all created with digitally printed fabric and exquisite embellishments. Once again, a truly beautiful collection described as having 'cinematic perspective'. The show also came with the announcement of a collaboration with the American retailer Target, a line that will be launched in February to include womenswear, swimwear and accessories.
