Not everyone is lucky enough to acquire an all-access pass to the most coveted seats at runway shows during Fashion Week. Happily, the team at Fashionista.com was able to report on their findings from inside the tents, and have revealed their Top 10 Trends from New York Fashion Week. Here are some of the highlights:
Karate-inspired Garments. Fashionista says that “White-to-ivory, starchy layers were belted dojo-style and paired with coordinated slouchy pants,” on many a runway at Fashion Week. Designers like Calvin Klein, Proenza Schouler, and Dion Lee dressed models in this “high karate” style that offers unique silhouettes and a bold look.
“Quirky” Pattern Pairing. We recently wrote about the trend in using “quirky” models, but many designers also opted for the unusual pairings of different prints and patterns on the runway. Seeing clashes of atypical floral prints, patterns and stripes at shows like BCBG by Max Azria, Tanya Taylor, Honor, and Creatures of the Wind, was not uncommon. Fashionista calls the look “a little bit sexy secretary, a little bit naughty librarian…but definitely more off-kilter.” This trend definitely allows for more creativity within your wardrobe.
Picnic Prints. Fashionista described the picnic-inspired prints at Fashion Week as being fun and playful. “These pack-a-basket-and-go prints bring to mind a summery Saturday excursion into the country. Ginghams, bandana prints, and Pierre Deux-inspired mini-florals factor prominently, as do high-contrast colorways.” With color trends leaning towards yellow, gold, light blue, and white, it seems like springtime apparel is going to be light and crisp!
