When you talk about hot designers of today’s street wear you can’t do it without talking about Alexander Wang. This season collection was inspired by heavy metal and not only that but Wang adds that his customers are always asking for things in black. So he decided to go with an all black collection-excluding a few pieces like the red plaids coats. With the mixer of the heavy metal- rocker theme and the all black look, the runway was bound to look edgy and gothic with pieces of hardware like Ball-chain trim decorated the velvet revers of a tuxedo jacket, and it also lined the curving seams of sleeveless dresses with cutouts at the shoulders. There was silver snaps-across boxy jackets, and wallet chain attached to the waistband of cropped trousers. Pieces like quilted vest and bullet-proof ones hit the runway with fitted top and long skirt trimmed with chain fringe at the hem, fur-trimmed parka, and velvet crop tops. I think this is my favorite collection for this season!
Nicole was inspired by a picture of a forest and after that she decided she wanted to go a little deeper “more mythic arts, symbols and illustrations” she says. In the collection there are lost of embellishment feathered hemlines, floral appliqués, metallic beads and fringe for detailing. Multicolored fox-fur and leopard-print mohair coats were a just a few outerwear looks. Silk blouse patch-worked with digitized forest, crystal prints paired with rainbow-printed leather skirt, andcamo blazer with floral side panels. Not to mention the forest green gown embroidered with all sorts of animals plus Miller’s popular ruched dress that had no embroidery on it what so ever.
The name Monique Lhuillier is best brought up when you think couture bridal gowns and red-carpet dresses. This season Monique went for a different route in the with her evening-wear collection, instead of going girly with princess skirts or tulle she went with a more fitted look. For the silhouettes; slinky, curve-hugging, and cut on the bias was the theme of the collection this season. Liquid copper, burnout velvet looks, plus some allover beading, and camouflage-floral jacquard gave a bit of glamour. Long trains, cutouts and asymmetrical on some of the silk satin looks were a bit over dramatized but still looked fabulous with the rest of the lineup!
An ode to the Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe autobiography called “Just Kids.” Rebecca had an impulsive vision to design and came out with her 2015 fall collection. It was a rock-rich hippie journey of looks “redelivered” for today’s younger generation in a today’s stylish world. Outerwear was in rich fabrics like suede, hair calf, tweed and this seasons fashion week favored it fur: shearling. There wear a variety of coats from fitted maxi trenches to slim cropped jackets, some with a cape, and car coat. Metallic chiffon peasant tops, long slit skirts, and a few mini skirts. The vintage feel came from the runway being adorn with fringe, suede motos, knee-high boots, and the tunic sleeves gave to lineup its bohemian vibes!
A young designer establishing his career in fashion, Wes Gordon is making sure that he stay Consistent with his aesthetic of the nineties minimalist look. The collection was modern grung with rib-knits tops ,combat boots(Manolo Blahnik), column skirts, and dark blue denim. Then went a little Art Nouveau-esque with floral prints on pieces from short to long dresses and some trim to close the lineup. This collection what downtown girls will ear and what uptown girls want to wear!
Chic, glamorous, and seductive is what I would call Wu’s fall 2015 collection. The lineup consist of cashmere coats that’s double-faced, midcalf skirt or ankle-length trousers, fur vest, zip-off sleeves, and detachable linings. the color combination of olive green, shades of grey, and coal black fit in with the New York fashion week trend. The collection is sleek and elegant with a bit of drama to it to give off that super strong woman feel!
