NYFW HIGHLIGHTSWhat's on
New York Fashion Week has got the SS2020 show season off to a fresh start, from Seventies Day Dressing to Gothic Prom and we’ve been keeping a close eye an eye on all the top looks.
From the emerging trends to the standout pieces, captivating shows and live performances, find out which collections made it to our annual show review…
A LIVE PERFORMANCE BY SAVAGE X FENTY
Rihanna had a strictly no-phone policy during her latest show at New York Fashion Week this season, ensuring all eyes watched the extravagant live performances.
The show was streamed on Amazon Prime and featured our favourite talent from Gigi and Bella Hadid to Cara Delevingne, Joan Smalls, and Slick Woods.
There was a big focus on body movement and dance, as opposed to a traditional catwalk strut, with a mix of singers, actors, and dancers including: Migos, Halsey, DJ Khaled, Fabolous, A$AP Ferg, Big Sean, and even Rihanna herself!
The new pieces include bra and underwear sets, as well as bodysuits, sexy lingerie, tank tops, and slips which are all available online.
TOTALLY MARC JACOBS
Nearly 60 models walked in Park Avenue Armory building’s 55,000-square-foot Drill Hall, which one of the largest unobstructed spaces in the city and such was the location for Marc Jacobs latest collection.
For his spring/summer 2020 collection, Jacobs was in a reflective mood to reflect his 2001 show had taken place the night before 9/11. “It has been 18 years and a day we will never forget,” he said. The clothes were high-fashion meets Annie’s Miss Hannigan, dressing up box chic that made for a maximalist whole and veering from 60s shifts to an 80s-style pinstripe powersuit to a Stetson.
A 70s thread, which echoed the “flower child” direction of Jacobs’ 2001 show, saw model Kaia Gerber dressed in a floor-length, statement sleeved dress decorated with florals enough to rival a Kew greenhouse!
OSCAR DE LA RENTA TRIBUTE SHOW
For spring/summer 2020, Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia paid tribute to the house’s late founder and his native Dominican Republic.
While baskets of fruit and palm trees lined the catwalk, the clothes represented a carefree, holiday feel with super short hemlines, a bright colour palette and more than a few ruched and ruffled ballgowns, which will no doubt be a hit with the A-list crowd come award season.
A very colour-heavy New York Fashion Week continued with Coach as Stuart Vevers presented his men’s and women’s SS20 collections, where he took his customer into much more of a city look than we have seen previously.
The collection was an ode to NYC style, making the newest section of the city’s High Line the perfect location to show. Pink trench-inspired dresses and silver leather featured alongside sweatshirts printed with the pop illustrations of Richard Bernstein.
