I have been admiring the New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 Collections from behind a computer screen this past week, but I have full intentions to return to NYFW in February!
As some of you may know, I used to attend NYFW regularly, but after several seasons of the same chaotic atmosphere and what seemed to be looking like the same collections over and over; coupled with the restricting of the event, I decided to take a leave of absence from the jungle that is Fashion Week. But thanks to social media, I was granted a glimpse of what the revamped NYVW is like, and I think I enjoy what I ‘ve seen.
There is no longer a main venue for runway shows like Bryant Park or Lincoln Center, and the shows seem to have taken on a more creative approach making it more about the brand as a whole, and not just the clothing. I was extremely impressed by many of the collections this season and I am excited to see what designers come up with for February.
Check out 7 of my favorite NYFW SS16 Collections below:
This collection was fun and flirty with hints of 70s safari inspired pieces.
Christian Siriano –
Christian Siriano is one of my all-time favorite American designers. And it’s not just because we were basically wearing the same shoes the day we met at his adorable little boutique in SoHo. This collection came with clean lines, fabulous structure, muted colors, and as always, hints of drama.
Kate Spade –
Kate Spade represents the fabulous girly girl that lives in us all, and I pretty much want everything in this SS/16 collection!
Another one of my all-time favorite designers, Tadashi has the ability to create such effortlessly elegant pieces. His SS/16 collection was able to mix elegance with sporty with lots blues and whites. Just absolutely beautiful!
Jenny Packham –
This collection with sleek and sexy, and fun and flirty. There were a mix of pieces for every woman.
Yeezy Season 2-
Let’s be real. On the runway, we all know the collection resembled apocalyptic hobo chic, but separately all of the pieces are very wearable. The bomber jackets paired with jeans, or the bottoms with an easy tee – why not? I personally think this collection has great potential and was somewhat inspiring despite its negative reviews.
Custo Barcelona –
This collection was made up of perfect prints! Several of the pieces are light and airy; like a sexy beach party and the 70s were invited.
