New York fashion week is by far the most exciting yet craziest and busiest weeks in the industry. With it coming towards the end lets take a look book at my favourite collections so far.
~KATE SPADE NEW YORK~
No matter the season, you are always guaranteed to see a bright, fun and extravagant collection from Kate Spade, and she definitely did not disappoint us this week. With floral and leopard print incorporated into her colourful designs, Kate has brightened up fall and made it exciting. From embellished sweatshirts to candy pink cigarette pants to floral print blouses there is definitely something for everyone in this collection.
Although I adore the clothes, her creative and quirky accessories definitely stole the show for me. With everything from a chinese take out box bag to fan clutch, Kate managed to transform her clutch bags into a chinese wonderland. Love it!
~ALICE + OLIVIA~
This seasons Alice + Olivia collection definately pulled out all the stops - the mystical backdrops and dark designs mirrored that of an old fashioned fairytale. The collection showcased a variety of victorian-esque items alongside more modern fashion pieces which created a wonderful overall look. The influence for the presentation brought everyone back to their childhood as Disney characters such as Rapunzel and Cruella DeVil were seen incorporated into the designs. Metallics and fur alongside black items of clothing kept the overall look sophisticated and feminine. Such a creative way to display a collection.
~ ELIE TAHARI~
Elie always provides us with casual yet sophisticated outfits for every season. The inspiration for the collection was "Lightness through the darkness. Only through the darkness is when we can see the light", which was beautifully demonstrated with the use of clear umbrellas as a background contrasted by the dark autumn / winter ensembles.
Some outfits are emphasized with a dash of a bright colour to make them more lively, although most of the outfits are neutral in colour with black and grey as the main theme. The collection is great for the modern day woman as it is comfy, wearable and stylish all in one. From chunky hand crotched sweaters to beautiful statement coats and jackets, Elie has once again given us practical, stunning clothing and footwear to keep us warm whilst looking fab this season.
