Every fashion week is very exciting but in the same time stressful – running from one show to another, trying to see everything and be everywhere, even though we realize it is impossible. As New York fashion week recently ended we would like to present you a review of the best tendencies in fashion of Autumn/Winter 2015.
Carolina Herrera presented her Autumn/Winter collection by again staying faithful to herself and the idea of dressing a feminine, elegant and confident woman. For this particular collection Herrera found inspiration in the ocean and her stunning dresses were a reflection of the movements and power of the waves.
The designer Donna Karan delivered an eastern style with her collection for the next season. The models, dressed in beautiful kimono jackets and anthracitic trousers with high belt on the waist, were proudly walking on the stage of New York City. Black and gold were the primarily colors in the collection, with accent outfits in olive green. We were totally in love with Donna Karan’s new styles. A style that is also eco friendly and good for the environment. See examples of Donna’s fashion here at huffingtongpost.com
Michael Kors’ collection for autumn/winter 2015 looks inspired by the business ladies. Perfectly sewed trousers and shirts, complemented by woolen jackets and fox neck-pieces. Simple, clear lines in neutral colors. Michael Kors has one more time done a great job!
The idea of the artistic director of Boss (Jason Wu) for the next season is concentrated in the clear cuts and geometrical lines. Binding of female and male, this collection chooses the “timeless” textiles of the male wardrobe and transforms them for the females of 21 century. Contrasts of anthracitic, black and bright red are in the foundation of the color pallet of this collection. Mix of wool and jersey is the textile for the slim costumes with trousers and skinny dresses, made for today’s confident and strong woman.
Hervé Léger by Max Azria found their inspiration for the autumn/winter 2015 collection in the La Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona. The designer couple kept their original foundation of dresses from bands, made from Herve Leger and presented their exquisite geometrical silhouettes, implementing leather and rich decoration of capsules. Many of the dresses were with long sleeves, for the ones that prefer to be more covered, the jackets in Spanish matador style. The whole collection was screaming – sex and power.
Alexander Wang’s autumn/winter 2015 collection was concentrated in black, as most of the other designers. In an interview Wang says: “The customers desire black. Why shouldn’t I make a collection of entirely black outfits”? The silhouettes were brilliant. A lot of leather, woolen textiles and metal accessories, together with those sparkling transparent dresses, which were the center of the collection, we think, looked great.
One more New York fashion week is over and every designer presented their new style and interpretation of beauty, power and confidence. It is always interesting to see how the different masters of fashion think of today’s needs for both women and men. We can’t wait to see what London, Paris and Milan has prepared for the next season.
