Marchesa, Calvin Klein, Misha Nonoo & Marc Jacobs: NYFW Highlights

I know New York has been and gone already and LFW is in full swing, but I thought I'd follow on from my previous post and share the rest of my highlights from the week just passed.

Marchesa AW 2015-16 Ready-To-Wear

O-M-effing-G! I am obsessed with this collection. Channelling 1920s Hollywood glamour, these gowns are magnificent. Actually having an excuse to wear one of these dresses is unlikely, however I am mesmerised by them nonetheless. With frills and tiers and beads and tulle, the detailing is exquisite in every piece and it really shows. Marchesa has taken the Gatsby trend to a whole new level, and reinvented it at that. Designers Chapman and Craig managed to bring a spectacularly decadent, sultry and dream-like production to NYC, making it a show to remember.

Calvin Klein AW 2015-16 Ready-To-Wear

Three words: Ponyskin, leather and Lurex. I cannot contain my love for this collection. Calvin Klein is by far one of my favourite designers ever, I just love the simplicity and the style of every collection past and present. I love the 60s references with thigh high leather look boots and mini dresses. However, the coats were the statement pieces of this collection and you can see why, they're amazing! Overall, it was the perfect mix of simple and sexy, I just loved it - can you tell?

Misha Nonoo AW 2015-16 Ready-To-Wear

Now this is how you do ready to wear! To be honest Nonoo has only recently been on my radar and I'm so happy she is. The collection is sophisticated but youthful and I love the use of metallics and oversized tailoring. I would genuinely wear the majority of this collection in a second (if I could afford it!).

Marc Jacobs AW 2015-16 Ready-To-Wear

Ok, so I don't  really know where to begin with this collection. There is so much going on here - fur, fit and flare silhouettes, pantsuits and moody florals. I love the monotone furs and that muted pink pantsuit is amazing. I just really liked the darkness and sinister vibes of the whole show. What a great way to end the New York run.

You can expect the first half of my LFW posts early this week as I've already started compiling images for it and am engrossed with practically every show so far. I can't keep off social media, it's becoming a bit of a joke really. But, hey ho at least I've just about managed to forget about my hangover with the distraction of pretty clothes! All this fashion week business is giving me a serious shopping bug.
