3 Trends From New York Fashion Week
As always, New York Fashion Week brings with it the inevitable forecasting of the new season’s trends. One of the most handsome dates on the calendar, it is that time of the year when the big brands and top designers introduce the new style trends that inspire and dominate global fashion.
There are many new lines that grace the catwalk during the week and its still early days in terms of seeing what looks will take to the masses. To give you a helping hand, we’ve identified 3 particularly strong looks from the week’s fashion spectacle, which we feel will take off in this Spring 16’ period.
The Power of Prints
The week revealed some interesting print pieces. Calvin Klein (left) showed off some interesting graphic wave pieces, while the rising NY hipster trio (Timo Weiland, Alan Eckstein and Donna Kang) went for the lo-fi look. Their look (centre), channelled an interested square print, pixilated static graphic. We also saw Richard Chai’s prints follow a similar suit, with vintage prints of abstracted indie album covers.
What is clear is that these interesting box prints are predicted to come in this season. It all about catching the attention of the eye and with our new arrivals of Drink Beer Save Water tee’s, you can easily achieve this look.
The Sports Luxe
Sportswear was heavily displayed and represented in the new fashion collections. With the continued crescendo of health conscious minds, fashionable sportswear is something we are seeing more and more of, as people want to portray the fit and healthy lifestyle they live by.
Michael Maccari, the Perry Ellis designer, took inspiration from the gym goers and incorporated compression leggings, cleverly layered underneath baggy apparel (left). Rag & Bone (centre) showcased the concept of freedom in movement via a film of parkour enthusiasts moving without restriction in their range. Ralph Lauren Polo (right) took the opportunity to present its new athleisure collection, which further supported the focus on the sports luxe look that is set to stay. You can affordably replicate this sportswear trend by taking inspiration from our recent ‘gym wear that works outside of the gym’ post.
The Man Bag
The city scenesters’ of New York favour a tote bag and come next season, its highly likely we will see toting’ being taken to the next level with the luxurious reversible versions shown by Michael Kors. Should they be looking for something a bit different, there were also some quirky, streetwear options. Robert Geller showed off some fascinating duffles whilst Greg Lauren sent out some artful canvas side satchels. Having those unique accessories are the perfect way to accentuate your outfit. Its all about those little details so get ahead and infuse our latest men’s bags into your style to complete the New York Fashion Week look.
