It’s officially Fashion Week season and we’ve got Fashion Week fever! Kicking off this season is of course, New York City! While press and the industry get a pass into the tents, for us mere mortals, we’re not so lucky to get a front row seat! Never worry fashionistas, for we’ve got all the news from New York Fashion Week you’ll need! Here are two of our favorite shows this season that we can see on the streets of Paris! Enjoy your New York Fashion Week fix!
“Delicacy can be strong” words from the former Spice Girl herself before her show. Victoria Beckham has come a long way since her days as Posh Spice, showing her talents lie elsewhere, in truly stunning fashion. Showing how commanding soft and delicate fabrics can be appears to be a trend and key theme to the New York shows this season, Beckham’s collection being of no exception. As of late, VB has been moving away from her originally signature look of skin tight pencil skirts and shift dresses and this collection has pushed all of her boundaries. Almost every piece in her S/S 18 collection is tailored with a slouchy feel, garments hanging off the models with nonchalance. Alongside the harsh tailoring are soft details such as crushed ruffles and pierrot collars. We particularly love the cut of one striking red dress that falls so elegantly, as well as Beckham’s version of a grown up candy striper outfit, complete with masculine shirt details. A couple of designers we thought we would share from NYFW.

This season, Dion Lee has merged together his personal links with both the fast paced nature of New York City and the laid back nature of the Australian beaches. His relaxed approached to tailoring is something we can really see taking off in Paris, not to mention his overuse of gray, perfect for the classic Parisienne. Incase all that gray was ready to put you to sleep, Lee also threw in some serious salmon pieces and muted violets to liven the collection up. We particularly love the asymmetric cuts in the tailoring and the mix of feminine and masculine.
