Fashion Friday: NYFW S/S 18
NYFW comes to an end and it has been an inspiring week of fashion and street style.
Attending a NYFW show is definitely a dream, but for now we are happy to watch the live shows and marvel at all the designers creations, each piece telling a story.
Millennial pink seems to be forecasted The colour trend of the season S/S 18. It is a dusky shade of pink reminding girls of their childhood-soft & feminine. I personally love it and it matches every skin tone.
Here is a round up of our favourite looks from our favourite designers:
1. The BROCK Collection
This husband & wife duo is dynamic. Their S/S 18 range is mind blowing. I could literally wear every single piece from their collection. The collection was filled with feminine flare & flow. The models hair were all in union-soft twisted buns. The make up was flawlessly natural. Satin & lace inserts, florals, sinched in waists-all creating elegance and linear perfection. I loved the black lace dresses-the exaggerated puffy sleeves and the sleekness of the transparency. The greenery and leaves on the runway was the cherry on top *insert standing ovation*
2. Zimmerman's range is bringing romance to life. 'The range was inspired by images from the 60s + 70s of the sunny beachside strip called The Gold coast in Australia. Beachside suburbs like Surfers Paradise were developed into glamorous holiday spots and became the must visit honeymoon, destination of the time.' The colour palette chosen was fresh with a mix of blues, purples, pinks and lemon yellow as a key hue. No detail was left out and lets all take a minute for the range of rafia belt bags and bold ear pieces. We are dreaming of Spring '18 already.
3. Self Portrait is one of our favourite ready-to-wear, therefore, we always have high expectations of their seasonal ranges. We loved how they added a bit of an edge to their range and not only offering the expected Spring florals and flow. Han Chong added an element of tailored trousers, ruffled tops and ruched skirts which is different from his signature lace ensembles, but it was warmly embraced. I'm swooning over the lemon floral dress that blew my mind and would be welcomed with open arms in my wardrobe.
4. Ulla Johnson's range filled my fashion love tank to the brim. Firstly, the runway was spring at it's best-blush and green florals, including amaranth and delphinium lined the runway and it made us wish away the upcoming winter as it's beauty made us yearn for Spring. It set the tone for an equally perfect range. A Fashionistas dream-no detail went unnoticed-what I would do to examine these pieces as I can only imagine the hours of workmanship that went into each garment. In her show notes, Johnson addressed her inclination for "pure and open" creations. Such designs reflected this desire and in doing so, she achieved a sense of freedom through her art.
5. Jill Stuart celebrated her 25 years in the business with a jaw dropping range. She went through her archives and instead of updating old pieces, she drew inspiration from them, rebirthing them into a fresh new range. "This is a new collection"-she noted backstage. She enhanced the soft florals that she is known for, added beautiful ruffles, puff sleeves and romantic fabrics. She added a rock & roll edge to reinvent herself and her well known feminine pieces.
