NEW YORK FASHION WEEK, SPRING / SUMMER 2017 READY-TO-WEAR COLLECTIONS…

It is always so exciting to see what the NYC based designers have for us each upcoming season. I have to say that this 'see now, buy now' new way has turned off the excitement for me a bit; but hey, our Sex & the City plus Gossip Girl plus Devil Wears Prada plus Suits plus… The line goes on & on… Inner girls inevitably get butterflies in their stomachs, waiting to be fill with inspiration after the Big Apple´s runways. Mmmmmm…
 
Here some very covetable trends seen during these days. Definitely, none of them to be ignored…
 
KNOTS ARE HOT
 
There were very cool knots destined to create a mélange of asymmetric silhouettes; as they were strategically placed on necklines, waist, hips, sleeves and/or hems on dresses (especially shirtdresses), tops and skirts. (Carolina Herrera, Adam Selman, Proenza Schouler)


 ULTRA LONG SLEEVES
 
Flowy or structured, many bell-shaped, ultra-long sleeves became one of the top favorite designers´ statement detailing. They spoke up about charming irreverence, something very hard not to fall for! (Vera Wang, Jenny Packham, Sies Marjan)
 
 
PLEATS TO PLEASE
 
Beautiful pleated pieces: maxi and midi-skirts, dresses, flowy tops or stand-out pleated details; clearly stated the still very alive appreciation for honest femininity. (Victoria Beckham, Dion Lee, Jason Wu)
 
 
THE PUBLIC BRA
 
Lovely ensembles with fearless displays of bras were all over these runways. A trend to be interpreted with care and fine style, but not for that less super gorgeous. (Altuzarra, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Tibi)
 
 
THE SLIP DRESS STILL STRONG
 
Still strong and conveying the perfect mix of sexiness and sophistication; the silky slip played a very important role in numerous collections; many embellished and especially paired with edgy pieces. (Johathan Simkhai, Prabal Gurung, Narciso Rodriguez)
 

 SHIRTDRESSES FOREVER
 
There were lovely long, midi and short shirtdresses full of beautiful ladylike modernity and comfort; so perfectly convenient and desirable for our warm-weather routines. Because looking fabulous is a habit! (Christian Siriano, Akris, Marissa Webb)
 
 
BARE MIDRIFF
 
A little more covered up than ´the public bra´, sensual and glamorous cropped tops accompanied gorgeous all-length skirts and pants of varied volumes and fits; one for every youthful style. (Rodarte, Jill Stuart, Jeremy Scott)

 
THE WHITE JACKET
 
The biker, the bomber, the rock & roll or the classic-cut on denim jacket in white added an exquisite modern pizzazz on fabulous mostly all-white ensembles. (Zac Posen, Carolina Herrera, Boss Women)
 
 
THE COLORFUL STRIPPED KNIT DRESS
 
Wonderful knit dresses with vibrant colorful stripes of mixed widths, mostly in primary and secondary colors; injected a playful but on-point special easiness. (Opening Ceremony, Rosie Assoulin, Proenza Schouler)
 
 
FLAMENCO VIBES
 
Delightful red flowers, rich ruffles on tops, dresses and hems; ultra-feminine skirts; all in bright red, crisp white and/or elegant black became the proof that flamenco vibes are very on! (Tome, Jenny Packham, Marchesa)

 
MARINE SOPHISTICATION

A superb tasteful marine sophistication was wonderfully felt in the catwalks through navy blue total-looks; blue and white stripes, tailored marine-inspired pieces, big gold buttons, red accents and impeccable silhouettes. Fabulous! (Oscar de la Renta, Sies Marjan, Jason Wu)
 
 
Next stop, London town…
 
LIFE IS A RUNWAY!
