New York Fashion Week was filled with ruffles, frills, and thrills and certainly wasn’t a let down. While these collections won’t hit the stores until this fall, here’s a sneak peak at some of the top trends that hit the runway last week!
Ruffles resurfaced into the fashion scene a few seasons ago and they were sure to make a statement as they went down the runway. Both Marc Jacobs and Brock Collection had dresses full of ruffles; others, like Tory Burch and Adam Lippes, took a more subtle approach to the look.
While jewel toned colors dominated the runways, royal purple reigned supreme. Sies Marjan showed off this rich color in a monochrome suite. This color was also featured in the new collections of popular designers like Derek Lam, Michael Kors, Anna Sui, Kate Spade New York, Claudia Li, and many more.
In a time where more and more designers are turning away from real fur, the attention is turning towards feathers. Cushnie and Marc Jacobs both stunned critics in full feather dresses; Oscar de la Renta and Dion Lee opted for more subtle accents of this bold frill.
We saw the classic 70’s patch work get a face-lift that hit the runways last week. Michael Kors and Oscar de la Renta both showed off this vintage trend in long trench coats while both Bode and Eckhaus Latta took the more colorful route in men’s wear and casual dresses.
With plenty of outerwear options, fleece made its dominating presence. Veronica Beard, Coach 2941, and 3.1 Phillip Lim all offered up cozy variations of this outerwear.
