NYFW | Day 5

AND done. All caught up and I have to say I am impressed with myself for getting it done so fast.

Tommy Hilfiger

Is it college football season again? No, but this runway would make you think that it is. Game day apparel got a luxurious facelift with Hilfigers new collection for fall. the models walked down the football field runway in 70s inspired silhouettes decorated with pins and lettering that made me want to watch Grease. The styles featured fabrics like fur, velvet, wool, and cashmere to bring the game to the high fashion world and I think it was a winner.

Alice and Olivia

Stacey Bendet described the newest collection from the brand as "late 60's early 70's boho mixed with sexy rock and roll", a concept that hasn't been a stranger to the runways this past week. The prints and dark colors are what really took the stage with this collection, with florals, wide diamonds, and floral jacquards. Some of the patterns were just used in one piece of the look, like a pant, or they were used for a dress and matching boots. Overall, it was a glam take on the intersection between rock and boho. 

Zac Posen

I could go on and on about how much I love what Zac Posen creates. His clothing always feature the most amazing drape work, some of which the designer will do himself. It was red carpet glam with a little punch with evening dresses to stun and everyday wear to go with it. The everyday looks featured the Posen flair with bold colors with sequins, cashmere, and swingy jersey dresses. The staple of the show is the one sparkling ball gown he produced worn by Naomi Campbell. The modern Disney Princess dress was a show stealer and any other gowns would have been dull in comparison. 

Rag and Bone

Another familiar theme of the runways, menswear tailoring and athleisure was a main focus on this runway. The ever popular style of the 90's was very apparent in the slip dresses, puffer jackets, shiny nylon, and vinyl coated wool coats. Even the styling was reminiscent of the 90's with pants and shirts under the slip dresses, I'm pretty sure I used to put my clothes together like that.
