New York Fashion Week in Pictures

Monday, 08 September 2014
After a weekend long of catwalk shows during New York Fashion Week, there have been several stand out presentations that are leading the pack for the Spring Summer 2015 season.

Hood by Air, a new casualwear line that has been making a name for itself in urban menswear, presented an interesting look for women with relaxed tailoring, deconstructed shapes and long-over-long layering.

Victoria Beckham, usually associated with high octane, opted for a short and boxy silhouette, with plenty of flat shoes on show from her new footwear collection. Utlitarian detailing made their way onto trench coats, safari shirt dresses and 70s style suiting.

Alexander Wang stayed true to his black, white, grey colour palette, with new injections of lime, cobalt and orange. Wang's sporty aesthetic is about modern luxury, and there aren't many designer who can make a Nike-inspired Flyknit dress look desirable. Not straying far from athletic inspiration, Wang reinterpreted the technical aspect of sport shoes, such as Nike, Adidas, and Stan Smiths as his leitmotif and reimagined them into body con dresses, high heeled pumps and sporty accessories.

Utility and function was also seen at Peter Som, where transparent technical rainwear was worn over a bathing suit or two piece. Nautical influences came into play with broad horizontal stripe double-breasted blazers and a colour palette that featured navy, cream and red. Key items include a relaxed trouser and shirtdress.
