New York Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week is full of great designers and shows. Since its hard to stay up-to-date with that many shows, we love to keep you posted. Check out the entire schedule of all fashion weeks here.

Marina Moscone

Maria Moscone only exists for 3 years now. Its true breakthrough took place last season. However, we can conclude things got even better during her New York Fashion Week show. This female designer explores the boundaries of femininity and translates them into innovative silhouettes and garments. Who thought knotted cummerbunds would be on trend again? Well, we didn’t. But after seeing this show, we have to revise our opinion.

Moscone shows you can be a true trendsetter, while keeping it clean. As opposed to big names in the scene such as Gucci and Balenciaga, who make everything bigger and bolder. Moscone’s sobriety is very welcome in this hysterical world.

Ryan Roche

Ryan Roche’s Spring/Summer 2020 show at New York Fashion Week made clear that blue will be next Spring’s focal color – preferably worn from head to toe. Ryan Roche shows that minimalism isn’t gone at all, just as Marina Moscone did with her new collection.

The way in which Roche pays attention to minor extras is extraordinary. From pearls used as buttons to thoughtfully finished details. Furthermore, Roche introduces a slightly new silhouette, with wide-legged trousers and bermuda shorts (!) worn low on the hips. We truly embrace this trend.

Dion Lee

The leather goods in Dion Lee’s shwo reminded us of Jil Sander’s harnesses from a few years ago. However, the show is very innovative compared to other minimalistic brands. The use of leather straps placed on unconventional parts of the body and the eye for detail make these outfits stand from the crowd.

Looking crisp and relaxed at the same time felt impossible until this collection. Lee also showed that it’s cool to be creative with scarves again. So watch that YouTube tutorial and you’re back on track.

Marc Jacobs

While unsuspectedly waiting for the first model to arrive on the runway, the entire hall of Park Avenue Armory got filled with an army of high end models, wearing the Spring/Summer Marc Jacobs looks. Jacobs knows how to close New York Fashion Week with a big bang.

There are two words to describe this collection: frivolous and colorful. Frivolous because of the great imagination of the designer and, well, colorful speaks for itself. Jacobs proves to be innovative season after season. Unlike others, he made the show full of big surprises – the models’ entry, the versatile collection and the bold mix of very differing looks. From checked tailored suits to ’80s T-shirts and full-on gowns. Nothing was too crazy for mister Marc. A smashing closure of NYFW.
