New York Fashion Week SS16 Edit

New York Fashion week is now in full swing showing SS16 collections from many of the worlds biggest labels. Spring Summer Fashion week is by far my favourite event on the annual fashion calendar with parades for four weeks across four countries. I guess being from Australia Spring Summer collections appeal to me the most because it doesn’t get particularly cold here. 

There has been so much to love already and I am enjoying waking up early each morning to check my Vogue Runway App and look at the parades that have happened overnight. My favourites so far have been Zimmermann, Victoria Beckham and 31 Phillip Lim.

Zimmermann is one of my favourite labels and their SS16 collection, Master and Mischief, is as always feminine, beautiful and easy to wear. I loved the prints, high victorian collars, lace sleeves, dusty pinks and ivory lattice. I cannot wait for this range to hit the stores.

Victoria Beckham’s range was more relaxed, fresh and carefree than previous seasons and did not feature any hourglass silhouettes nor evening wear. To me the collection looks extremely wearable whilst still being luxurious and feminine. I loved the surf prints, gingham prints, midi lengths, swing dresses and flats. This collection would work extremely well for the Australian lifestyle.

This is 31Phillip Lims 10th collection. 31 Stop and Smell The Flowers is a cool and easy collection and I love the colour combinations of earthy neutrals, greens and blues. The floral prints are divine as are the mid calf height shoes. The Wrapped Shirt Dress is my favourite piece from this collection. Phillip trucked in mounds of compost to the runway that he and his team had been making from thier own food waste and had been storing it for months. He said ” he was thinking about where things start, from a seed. They start from dirt”. The compost mounds will now be delivered to local parks, thus symbolising both beginnings and rebirth.

Back to the shows!
