NEW YORK FASHION WEEK F/W’2015: DAY 9
The nine day New York extravaganza finally came to an end with acclaimed American designers putting their best foot forward when it came to setting trends for NYFW Fall’2015. From a talent showcase of Japanese designers in Tokyo Runway Meets New York to Calvin Clein’s minimalist yet edgy collection, here are some of the designers that showcased their collections on Day 9:
Tokyo Runway Meets New York: The show highlighted the limitless talent through Japanese designer collections on the runway. An assortment of trends for Fall Winter’2015 were displayed. Sought after winter must-haves like biker leather jackets, shearling coats and others with exotic fur lining were showcased that stood in contrast to classics like plaid, stripes and classic suits. The era of 1970s’ made a comeback with metallic colours and polka-dot dresses. The combined collection was the perfect example that incorporated classics with contemporary trends.
Calvin Klein Collection: The classic American label known for its minimalism colours and cuts delivered the same but with an elevated sense of opulence. The colour scheme was kept limited to white, cream, black, apricot with dashes of deep red here and there. There was an evident influence of the 60’s era with the thigh-high leather boots and the silhouettes showcased. A variety of exotic skins like calfskin, pony skin and comfy knits like metallic cashmere or ‘lurex’ were used. Models donned ribbed mini-dresses with frontal zips, an ankle-length double breasted ivory trench-coat, leather top with patchwork leather skirts and much more. Overall, the collection was slightly edgier than usual with bold necklines and lots of leather.
Sherri Hill: A sartorial collection presented by the designer showcased a collection of evening wear gowns that seemed perfect for any red carpet event. Elegant and regal, the garments showcased had a subtle touch of the bygone decades. Some of the outfits that stood out today were: a semi-sheer neutral gown with an elegant design, a bias-cut gown with baroque inspired detail, a ruby red embellished fishtail gown, and a daring thigh-slit embellished gown. The collection was the perfect amalgamation of opulence and feminine beauty.
