The stars are shining bright tonight.
If you’re seeking some wardrobe inspo for the warmer weather ahead, you can’t look past the runways of New York Fashion Week, which we’re currently in the midst of. Coming in hot off the catwalk this year is big hair, vibrant prints, relaxed tailoring and loads of colour – think the swinging 60s meets boho. So, ladies, this summer pull out your sense of adventure, because it’s all about being bold and making a statement.
Take inspiration from some of our favourite NYFW looks below.
“Plastic is fantastic,” was the summation of Scott’s SS16 collection. Taking us on a journey back through time, the 60s and the 80s were prominent themes among this year’s designs with plastic, shiny jewellery and dresses, cartoon patterns, and pop art.
Diane von Fursten
Embroidery, clashing prints, metallics and relaxed tailoring took centre stage at Diane von Fursten’s SS16 show. Drawing inspiration from Fortuna, the goddess of luck, the models donned Grecian gowns, silks and plunging necklines. Interestingly, fuchsia pink stole the spotlight, establishing itself as a base colour for quite a few of Fursten’s designs.
Did someone say, Bob Marley? At this years Tommy Hilfiger show it was all about the island vibes with crocheted dresses, string bikinis and flora prints. Maxi dresses look set to make a comeback, as does the patchwork print, with Hilfiger combining the two – as can be seen on Gigi Hadid below.
Vera Wang proved that orange is definitely not the new black with her SS16 collection. Keeping colour to a minimum, Wang worked an oversized boyfriend feel into her collection, debuting an assortment of large jackets and tanks, loose trousers, short shifts and cut-out pieces.
