Wang, Gurung, Altuzarra & Wu: NYFW Highlights

NYFW has well and truly arrived! Fashion week is my favourite time because my Instagram is blowing up and I really can't get enough. I always look forward to the colder months because I find the fashion is more my cup of tea and I just love nice coats and boots etc. So, as you can imagine I look forward to these shows. I thought I'd take my morning off as an opportunity to share some of my highlights of my favourite collections so far.

Alexander Wang AW 2015-16 Ready-To-Wear

I always look forward to Alexander Wang and his sportswear street style. This year he explored a more feminine territory and I absolutely loved it. I am not a huge fan of colour and so his choice of black palette suited my taste perfectly. This collection was more dressed up and gothic than what we've previously seen from Wang and I was pleasantly surprised. I especially loved the mix of hard textures with a focus on fringed hippy skirts, sheer metallic midi dresses and studded knits and mini dresses. Also, the models look badass with their chunky boots and grunge hair/makeup.

Prabal Gurung AW 2015-16 Ready-To-Wear

I absolutely love mixing heavy coats with delicate, feminine dresses and Gurung has done this so elegantly. I adore the neutral colour scheme used throughout this collection (although he also featured a few fabulously bright pieces that I haven't shown here). Slinky details paired with heavy duty furs are just my favourite thing, so no wonder I loved this collection so much.

Joseph Altuzarra AW 2015-16 Ready-To-Wear

Day 3 of NYFW got off to a mesmerising start with Altuzarra. I cannot contain my excitement for this collection, it captivated me from the get go. With structured coats, 70s style pantsuits, fox fur aplenty and the most beautiful evening dresses paired with over the knee boots; this collection is the perfect mix of glamorous, sexy and feminine.

Jason Wu AW 2015-16 Ready-To-Wear

I love the clarity and grace of Wu's collections, and am particularly pleased to see he has incorporated a stronger selection of outerwear this year. The clean cut lines and textured details make for the perfect working woman's wardrobe. Wu really knows how to master the demure everyday look.

So, there's my favourite four shows so far. It's worth noting that this post was written late last night and as I've been in work all day I have only managed to catch a glimpse of today's shows, so I'm looking forward to seeing more of those. 

Although fashion week has barely begun, I thought these designers deserved appreciation. I think I'll carry on with these posts, showing the most blog worthy collections, etc. I'm super excited to see what's to come as my favourite designers have yet to take to the catwalk. I'm hoping for lots of 70s vibes as I'm really into that at the moment and will be looking for lots of inspiration for Autumn/Winter this year so that I can give my wardrobe a reboot come September.
