The words divine, graceful and dream-like do not begin to describe the glamorous wonderland that Tadashi Shoji’s collection belong in. From everyday pieces to evening gowns every look emerges with timeless tranquility and ethereal elegance. In black and white, purple and green, tulle or silk, embellished or translucent each piece expresses a unity between art and femininity through minimalist detail and flawless silhouettes.
BCBG Max Azria, always a favourite of ours each New York Fashion Week, showed a collection with wonderful statement patchwork coats, along with romantic dresses, with details (including the leather trim) and prints inspired by beading and handcrafts.
Rebecca Minkoff channelled a 1970s vibe with a collection inspired by Patti Smith, with fringe (of all lengths), leather, suede, wool, and knee-high boots, all while managing to look light, thanks to the mixture of fabrics and decent styling. We loved the jackets and vests, neatly layered, as well as the long Sherpa coats. Blacks, whites and browns all made appearances, the last colour reminding us how in that decade, brown could be made to look fashionable—and Minkoff did just that with her boho chic fall collection.—Eleanor Wright, with Lucire staff
