My mind is currently spinning with the number of fashion shows I have to keep up with... and we're only halfway through the month. Even though the two oldest fashion capitals are still in line, next season's trends are already beginning to surface. Cropped tops... floral prints and embellishments (Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking. But no, I really mean it because it's quite interesting how some designers translated this constant trend)... Sheer... But let's save those for another entry.
While I wrap my head around what's going to be big next season, let me present to you some of my favorite outfits from New York fashion week...
Look # 1 brought to you by Prabal Gurung: a transluscent PVC raincoat with a rose motif. What a great way to marry an edgy color combination with a very feminine detail. It's perfect for the abundance of rain we've been having over here in Manila... On a side note, his collection was divine. Raf Simons' collection for Dior was an obvious inspiration.
Look # 2 brought to you by Monique Lhuillier (Filipina pride!): a hot pink bandeau paired with a draped ball skirt in persimmon. This look has femininity written all over it... and the bandeau and the full skirt was the perfect juxtaposition between contrasting hemlines. This striking color palette, a rarity in this New York fashion week, trickled down to each and every look.
Look # 3 brought to you by Jason Wu and Karlie Kloss (of course). Designers sure love to drape their highlight piece on this supermodel. I guess it's because only Kloss can manage to make this dress look alluring, feminine, sexy, and mysterious all at once. Swathed in gray, this dress' fitted top and drapey bottom demands the perfect movement. I'm beginning to sense that designers are loving the contrasting look this season...
And that was just three of the thousands of looks that have been presented over the past two weeks. There are more to come. I think we're quite spoiled when it comes to choices and inspiration. And that's not necessarily a bad thing.
