Think of all the best bits in fashion for the past years, now toss ’em all in some magical machine, and ta-daaa: take a step back, sip that latte (or wine, why the hell not) and watch the most beautiful looks ever roll out in front of you. It’s gonna be a great spring/summer 2017.
After watching some collections straight off the runway at NYFW Spring 2017 I gotta say a few thinks aka trends stand out for next year: a lot of white, trench-coats (or bath robes), bras as tops, athleisure or sports-mania still strong, a lot of blue, some 50s silhouettes, 80s accents, slouchiness, romanticism, garbage-grunge.
You might have thought I fell off the face of the earth, but nah-ha, I was just absorbed into the sartorial world of next year, and I can tell you this much. I am obsessed with some looks from designers I never thought I’d love so much: hello DKNY, and Lacoste.
I guess all my gym life is rubbing off on my fashion life.
Things I loved about NYFW Spring 2017: that sports in fashion trend is not dead, in fact it’s quite strong and Alexander Wang’s & Adidas collab stand testimony to that. Amen! And his collection was absolutely amazing. I loved Lacoste for all the same reasons and all the long trenches inspired by long retro masculine bath-robes. Shut the front door.
I loved the mix of masculine with romantic vibes from Zimmerman, all those white shades of white and lace and see-through. So all-white looks will be a massive trend. Can I also speculate on summer nude thigh-high boots?!
If you think crop tops are passé think again. We’ll be baring just a little more than our midriffs: bras are the new tops. Probably by 2020 we’ll all go topless or something.
Slouchy is the new sexy. So maay power suits with a bit of grunge meets 80s Detective Colombo vibe. With a dash of sporty.
Ultra feminine and hot as fuck was Altuzarra’s collection. If I could choose one set of clothes to die in or live in for eternity that’d be it. Maybe a bit of DKNY here and there, and I’m done.
Of course I will have to keep some room for Marc Jacobs, and Michael Kors par example. But we’ll see.
Things I liked less about this NYFW Spring 2017: that I missed the Kanye wave, so I can’t really articulate much on that. And THAT I hate. But, from what I’ve seen the clothes, as bland as some might say they were – I LOVED. I’m just really into all this laid back sports sexy hobo chic with a dash of urban fashion right now. You know, fashion that’s suppose to look like £100 when in fact you’re splurging at least one or two zeros on top of that.
I wasn’t too impressed with designers’ collections I used to adore in the past, like DVF, or Victoria Beckham. Zac Posen didn’t do much for me either. But what the fuck do I know. My sartorial barometer work by how much my heart stops or skips a beat at the sight of a collection. Yeah. Didn’t really happen to the ones above.
Of course I don’t have the best and most functional emotional system aka heart out there, but I always kinda followed it. My brain tags along sometimes but more often than not it’s quite a few steps behind.
So here are my fave looks from NYFW Spring 2017. So far.
Have a great day my loves and please share yours in my Facebook comments.
