Georgine’s collection takes mainstream styles of clothing and shakes them up with an abstract element: blue wash denim suits, complete silk office wear, metallic arm warmers, and optical illusion dresses paired with mismatching garments. Forest green is a focal point of the collection as well as lavender hues, sunshine yellow and cherry red. The obscure themes are accented by heavy bright eye shadows that complement the quirky collection.
Diane von Fürstenberg has always been a creator of clothing with bold prints, a passion which doesn’t falter with this season’s NYFW collection, ‘The idea is always to celebrate women to be individual so that they dare to be themselves; be a woman they want to be.’ With this inspiration, her collection dabbles in textured gold fabrics, embroidered tulle, Grecian-style gowns and garments saturated in popping colours and prints. This collection plays with the elements of fashion and appeals to the adventurous æsthetic of the urban woman.
Derek Lam drew inspiration from ’70s-esque fashion, evident in his elaborate, loose flared trousers, wide bell sleeves, crisp shirts and knitted vests, as well as the typical suede and tassels. Lam’s traditional focus on the feminine ideal is evident in this collection; however, he has clearly emphasized a particular moody theme through his dark choice of colour palette.
