New York Fashion Week Edit

I am keeping a close eye on all the parades at New Work Fashion Week. There is always so much to love and as always I am anxiously waiting for some of the amazing pieces to arrive next season. Read about my favourites so far:

J Crew showed their range on friends and family of all shapes and sizes. This won me over immediately and reflected the fact that J Crew is a brand that serves a wide range of consumers. I love to see a range on real women. The range emphasized the J Crew basics showing signature chinos and menswear inspired shirting with a palette of pink, white, blue and khaki. We also saw a J Crew version of very wearable evening wear including shorts in pastel satin, voluminous gossamer trousers, khaki toned tulle, sequined sweaters. My favourite being the floor length wrap skirt with ruffles in men’s striped shirting. I love this range because it’s full of clothing a woman is happy to wear every day.

Rosie Assoulin contrasted the realities of our less-than idyllic world with a fantasy beach vacation setting. Assoulin reimagined childhood classics such as her families well loved beach chairs and umbrella as striped lurex sundresses, cotton separates, smocked separates and sleek sundresses with ruffles and fringing. Assoulin’s version of a signature tee was printed with a psychedelic postcard scene with the text “Wish You Were Here” studded across the back in Swarovski crystals. She also included denim and safari inspired day dresses and suiting for the woman that have real jobs. Love it. This is my favourite Rosie Assoulin collection so far and I cannot wait to get my hands on one of the dresses from the collection.

As always Victoria Beckham’s collection spoke easy elegance and unspoken sex appeal. For spring Beckham made a point about ease by washing and crushing silks and velvets and deconstructed clingy knit dresses exposing knit bras underneath. Beckham’s expert draping revealed just hints of the body and exposed shoulders that real woman could wear and feel comfortable in. The colours were divine and carefully mixed with print. My favourite being theĀ  peppermint and lilac crushed silk velvet. The range was very wearable, relaxed and felt like summer. I cant wait to saunter through summer in a piece of Victoria Beckham crushed velvet.
