We cannot resist the excitement each time fashion weeks come. This first ready-to-wear fashion week was all about NEW YORK and its FALL / WINTER 2015 -2016 collections.
Anything that happened in this wonderful city fashion wise, now we are ready to LOVE, embrace or at least appreciate with our sensitive hearts; because whatever happened reveals what is going on around us; how ‘we’ (meaning the world) are evolving and transforming… Isn´t that fantastic? Fashion has to do with everything!
Here some gorgeous trends to have in mind and, may I suggest you, to take into consideration in our very personal fashion world…
Exquisite METALLIC pieces in light, medium or dark hues infused a very powerful sexiness and panache to many of the collections. The ensembles built around this dazzling trend spoke up pure fashion magic! (Images: Naeem Khan, Boss, Zac Posen & Marc Jacobs)
Definitely one of my favorite trends for next fall / winter seasons! The elegance, confidence and great style involved in every furry look were simply breathtaking. Either as a trim, neckline, wristband, waistband or as a full furry piece; let us get ready to move and show our best tasteful selves in cozy FUR!

Art is always present in fashion; because fashion itself is art; and it was clearly stated in the TEXTURED MELANGE seen in these runways. New York established designers built artful pieces and looks by mixing wonderful TEXTURES such as silks, wool, leather, paillettes, feathers, fringes and keep counting… Delightful craftsmanship I call that! (Images: Marchesa, Bibhu Mohaparta, Proenza Schouler & Ana Sui)
Ladylike, powerful silhouettes were among the most beautiful trends. Some full but mostly midi skirts and dresses reflected the oh-so-tasteful vibes on New York’s catwalks… A more than perfect combination of classic & modern… Sensational! (Victoria Beckham, Narciso Rodriguez, J. Mendel & Ralph Lauren)
HIGH BOOTS, around the knee and up became one of the most precious companions of easy, casual and even very elegant looks; especially when midi dresses and skirts were involved. How amazing it is to mix statements in fashion… Mmmmmm… Pure style! (Images: Tory Burch, Marc Jacobs, Boss & Jil Sander)
Turtlenecks, wide-bottom pants, low or very high waist lines, big buttons, wide belts, hippie lightness, straight and simple A lines silhouettes and mostly the MINIS were very present in New York’s runways; clearly inviting us to live those relaxed and irreverent vibes of the 60’s. Lovely!
Next stop, LONDON!
LIFE IS A RUNWAY!
