The next season’s fashion kicked off with New York Fashion Week last week, giving us a good chance to check out the designers’ offerings for spring/summer 2017. The amount of shows does mean a crazy amount of fashion moments, theatrics of all kinds and the opportunity to spot incredible street style. It’s our responsibility to round up only the best moments for you, so here you go:
Alexander Wang designed a range of sportswear-inspired pieces such as streamlined dresses, off-the-shoulder sportswear hoodies and lots of lace-up tops in both athletic fabrics and metallics.
Creating a contrast between softly draped and gathered dresses, and boxy structural sleeveless jackets, Jason Wu displayed a visual juxtaposition in cool blues and warm reds.
Lacoste‘s take on athlesiure included tennis-skirt style pleats, tailored tracksuit pants, oversized sportscoat jackets, and plastic raincoats.
Together with his muse Gigi Hadid, Tommy Hilfiger showed a collection of nautical-inspired pieces. Popular pieces included leather trousers, patterned bandannas tied around the neck, and oversized bomber jackets in retro knits or satin, all emblazoned with anchor motifs.
Victoria Beckham presented a range of elongated loosely draped garments in gorgeous silk fabrics of single hues. Known for her love of black, she experimented with colour this season to great effect.
Zac Posen took us to a 1950s dance with full skirts and metallic accents. Strappy sandals and floral prints completed the summer feel.
Extended sleeves, cocooning skirts, carefully placed pockets, stand-out zips and a multitude of inky black fabrics made up Vera Wang’s spring/summer collection.
Thom Browne’s retro range included three-piece suits, colour co-ordinated pencil skirts and modest elbow-length jackets worn by perfectly poised models.
Combining drawstrings, exaggerated collars and platform sneakers, DKNY has made it cool to wear oversized suits, both formal and track, for this summer.
Rodarte introduced soft romance and dark grunge with ruffles of all sizes, fringed leather jackets, layers of spotted tulle and a smattering of silver studs on belts and lapels.
Dion Lee presented oversized shapes in neutral colours, with softness from pleats, cut-outs and exaggerated collars and cuffs. Garments were emphasised with hardware such as large buckles and exposed zips.
