Missed all the New York Fashion Week coverage? Here’s what you need to know.
Longchamp brought Paris to New York
For its second season showing at New York Fashion Week, Longchamp added a touch of Parisian girl chic to the Big Apple. There were studded leather mini skirts, pussybow blouses and printed midi dresses. Kendall Jenner, the face of the brand, was sitting front row. She explained what drew her to the brand, ‘I think something that I really appreciated about them was their sense of Parisienne style but also they find a way to bring in those New York aspects, and of course the whole equestrian thing is what drew me to it, but also the timelessness of it.’
She was joined by Emma Roberts, and Kaia Gerber walked the show.
Barry Manilow started the party to Michael Kors
Over at Michael Kors, whose collection was inspired by Studio 54, Barry Manilow serenaded the crowds with a performance of his cult hit, Copacabana, and the crowd went wild. Models – clad in gold lamé, sequins and feathers – even went on stage to party with him.
Kate Spade paid tribute to its creator
There was lots of buzz around this show at New York Fashion Week, and it was the second collection by new creative director Nicola Glass since the brand’s founder Kate Spade passed away in June of last year. The result was as uplifting as you’d expect. There were heart-shaped accessories perfect for Valentine’s Day (whether on purpose or not), and cute basket bags. The collection itself featured dreamy pastel shades and cute prints.
Tomo Koizumi took ruffles to the next level
Tomo presented his first show at NYFW, after being discovered by stylist Katie Grand. Dreamy was the order of the day, with ruffles galore, in all the shades of the rainbow, as modelled by Gwendoline Christie, Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski. Obviously, Instagram loved it.
Paris Hilton made a proper comeback
If you’ve ever been into The Simple Life, you’ll love the fact Paris walked the runway at The Blonds, wearing a decidedly Paris outfit (silver, tassels, sequins).
Street style set the tone for fashion month
If you weren’t on board with tonal dressing, you will be soon, because the micro trend was all over the streets of New York Fashion Week, and even Duchess Meghan is getting in on it.
Head-to-toe browns, camels, khakis, whites, pastel pinks, blues… Anything goes, and it always looks chic.
