New York Fashion Week is full of great designers and shows. Since its hard to stay up-to-date with that many shows, we keep you posted.


Bevza stands for sophisticated minimalism with Ukrainian roots – which was expressed very well during its Spring Summer 2020 show.

The collection felt a bit as Maison Margiela back in the days. Some garments were deconstructed and indeed very sophisticated, as the brand claims to be (and definitely is). We’re huge fans of the fan-shaped bags. They might not be that practical, but elevate every outfit for sure. Later on, the looks got more naughty when bare skin was shown on unexpected places of the body. All looks had a minimalistic aesthetic, while very statement worthy.

From the 23rd look onwards, Greek goddesses seemed to have formed the inspiration, after which the shoulders got bigger and bolder and the looks more business-like.

Bevza’s show was fully packed, which is not surprising. While the label gets bigger and better, Emily Ratajkowski and Gigi Hadid (among other models) are huge fans. And whether you like it or not, this is the best PR for your brand to sell.


Longchamp’s show felt like a very modern Western movie with a hint of sporty chic. In a time in which you might think you’ve seen it all, Longchamp’s designer Sophie Delafontaine invented an innovative parka dress, combined with a prude looking polo – however, the entire look is everything but prude (this mag also be due to the fact that Kaia Gerber wears the look).

The opening look is followed by a couple of leather outfits (again: very neat, but not prude), when suddenly the first pastel outfit enters the runway, followed by many different looks and styles. At first, we’re a bit confused. Soon after the show, however, Delafontaine explains that her Spring Summer 2020 collection features a bold mix of the ’70s and ’90s. Aha. It’s a combination of hippie, sporty, chic and everything in between.

Overall, we can conclude that the collection is very feminine. Hence, it’s very refreshing that this collection does step away from the brand’s stiff heritage. The very small edition of Le Pliage bag caught our eyes. According to Delafontaine, you don’t need to carry anything else than a lipstick and a credit card in it. Because women are independent en fierce. We couldn’t agree more.
