Here’s a handy-dandy pocket guide to New York Fashion Week - Favourite runway looks, trend predictions and the stuff that didn’t go over so well. I’ll be doing one for London, Milan and Paris every week so if you like this, make sure to check back next Friday for more catwalk overanalysis.
- Red – and LOTS of it.
- Pattern clashes – intricate patterns based on maths/science (as seen on Preen with their uniform polyhedra prints)
- Polka dots – as at Marc Jacobs.
- Texture tastic – not only will we be mixing patterns, we’ll be mixing textures as well. As seen at Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler,
- Thigh-high split skirts - my legs say no, but my brain says YES!
- Sheer tights – Is it just me or are they a bit, erm, Maggie Thatcher?
Fur – on everything – on cuffs, on hats, skirts, everything. I guarantee that someone will manufacture fur underpants and make a profit. My personal stance on fur is pretty non-committal but the sheer amount of fur on the catwalks in NY seemed incredibly self-indulgent. Some of the most original collections didn’t use fur at all.
