Fashion Week is now over until September. As always it was a whirlwind of creativity, theatricality and style. After Nyne’s Caitlin Gorman has cast her critical eye over the entire spectrum of shows and has selected her own personal highlights.
NYFW Michael Kors
The hugely talked about A/W15-16 show constructed by Michael Kors demonstrates the trendy colours of camel, tan and Chamoisee in a whole new format. With colours of teal and gold collectively contributing to the amazing show, a sense of neutral, yet bold colours guides us to the perfect A/W15-16 wardrobe. With the feature of gabardine trenches and statement knits, it’s hardly surprising that the Micheal Kors’ show was favoured by many from NYFW.
LFW Jonathan Saunders
The greatly talented Scottish designer Jonathan Saunders used optimistic technicolours on his A/W15-16 collection with op art prints riffing on Sixties influenced attires. The huge variety of colours and patterns presents a perception of diversity, abstractness and optimism. The heterogeneous collection including a range of high-funnel necks and alluring lace-up, over-the-knee boots was an evident success and key highlight of London Fashion Week.
MFW Roberto Cavalli
The presentation of all-inclusive moments of wildlife and military within the infamous Roberto Cavalli collection has created a trend set to be appreciated immensely in A/W15-16.
The recollection of Cavalli’s starting point with denim in the early 70s among fur-hooded khaki pony skin parkas and glamorous silk jumpsuits emphasised the theme of romance portrayed throughout the collection and its metrical, ruffled bibs on elegant blouses. The elements of dark Chartreuse Yellows, black and white, among other colours presents the utmost sophistication and romance throughout the collection.
The exceedingly raved-about show of the season featuring the infamous Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, reprising their Zoolander roles made the Valentino the hot topic of PFW (along with the incredible designs, of course).
With the inclusion of op art in monochrome prints of feminine details and medieval fairytale romance being emphasised on elegant capes oscillating down the catwalk. Along with the colour scheme of reds and peaches, among many others, a fantasy of a catwalk was creatively produced in the monumental Valentino catwalk of A/W15-16.
