Review: New York Fashion Week AW12Wednesday, 15 February 2012
I've had a bit of a busy week which explains the gap between posts. By Friday I think I might be posting everyday from Fashion Week if I can get a decent WiFi connection. I have some exciting posts to come and I can't wait to share them with you all.
I thought I would come up for air from thinking about London and take a look at some fashion from over the pond. Looking through some of the shows I have been really impressed, there are some great trends already emerging. I'm just going to pick out some of my favourite collections so far and share them with you all.
I really liked this collection - leather, leopard print and buttoned up shirts. To me it seems to have many stand alone pieces that would work well away from this Catwalk look. The red and pink hue look in the middle has to be my favourite - the jacket has the perfect 'biker' style fit, I like my leather jackets to have a bit of room. Can you see anything here you'd like to be wearing next Autumn?
It is good to see that the cable knit will still be alive and well come this time next year. I think the short length shown here looks great with the high-waisted trousers - this is one look I will be sporting next season. It is also nice to see the aviator making a return - mine has been a solid investment. Rodarte has managed once again to mix the hard with the soft, the floaty dresses paired with epic black leather heels look amazing. What do you think to the collection?
Timo Weiland had so many pieces that I liked - I found it hard to pick just these three. The dress Charlotte Free is wearing looks like an amazing fabric, the print is so pretty too - the coat gives the look a little more edge too. I love the way they have styled the cable knit jumper here, the maxi dress and jumper combination is a favourite look of mine. How awesome are the trousers on the right? Such a statement piece and will look great teamed with any plain back shirt. Did this collection stand out to you?
