New York Fashion Week September 2012
Fashion designers, ahead of their time, look forward for the spring in NY before they head for London.
Fashion designers, as always ahead of their time, look forward for the spring 2013 this September at NY Fashion Week. Almost 100 previews are scheduled for retailers, editors and stylists over the next eight days, before they head for London, Milan and Paris.
This year the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week takes place at Lincoln Center, with a smaller second “home” in Manhattan’s Milk Studios. Of course some designers, like Tommy Hilfiger, Donna Karan and Ralph Lauren, had their shows in other locations, which keeps the crowd active.
Some of NYFW highlights include:
BCBG delivered high contrast on the catwalk, combined with leather harnesses and lingerie lace. The collection was aimed to capture the allure of femme fatales and the sharpness of Helmut Newton’s photography.
Tadashi Shoji filled the collection with dresses capturing a modern, clean femininity with a little bit of pageantry to them. The remarkable blue boatneck dresses and the chiffon-and-lace blousoned gown, were reminding lovely vases from the Ming Dynasty.
Joseph Altuzarra show, the “no makeup look” was inspired by “Catherine Deneuve in 1975 meeting Mr. Yves Saint Laurent.”
This season we also see the return of bouffant hair. At the Oscar de la Renta show models’ hair was streaked and swept up into a bouffant, also a 60s-inspired bouff was the focus for Marc Jacobs Creating “an updated Edie Sedgwick” and the high hairdos were trending this season.
At Tommy Hilfiger, the inspiration had one foot in being minimal, and the other in feeling quite natural, fresh and sexy but a very beautiful, minimal and wearable look.
And of course we have Naeem Khan, whos fall collection was reminiscent of India, this one, named “The Duchess of Windsor: Exotic Gardens, Fiery Skies and the Arabian Sea,” drew heavily from Morocco, with geometric patterns taken from traditional art, floral imagery and fiery desert sunsets.
