NYFW Pre-Fall; My Favorites Part 1

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! NYFW blew my mind this year, so much I am posting my favorites in parts. Enjoy!

Prabal Gurung

Prabal really DID THAT this year. A political show gone painfully right, his models were sent out at the end of the show with plain t-shirts reading “Revolution has no borders,” “I am an immigrant,” “Nevertheless, she persisted.” and ended with Gurung himself advertising “This is what a feminist looks like.” The main focus of his pieces were on effortless silk dresses with blazers fastened and unfastened, mixed in with beautiful intarsia furs and translucent overlays decked out with 300,000 hand-embroidered floating crystals. My favorite however, was the belted velvet dress, with the buttoned keyhole adorning the front. Flawless.

Tome’s Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin were, like many, fueled by this year’s Women’s March, but took a minimalistic, creative take on it. The looks included women’s silhouettes and everything we know and love about female anatomy. The aesthetic was filled with jersey dresses, fur, blazers, and a beautiful, airy , pink dress.

 

Public School

“Make America New York” was the brilliant slogan of Public School’s show. The brand’s recent leave from DKNY has proven to make more space for creativity. I love the streetwise look of this collection.

Wang truly never fails to create an amazing show, this year the collection was exclusively black and aimed towards a menswear/moto/brilliant look. Catsuits, leather jackets and pants, fishnets and suit shirts,  this is nothing particularly new for Wang but if it’s not broken, dont fix it. I LOVE it.

Jonathon Simkhai proved that crystals and fur are a girl’s best friend with this elegant showing.
