// Best of NYFW Spring/Summer 2017 //
With Instagram experiencing a flood of street style and behind the scenes pics from New York Fashion Week Spring Summer 2017, let’s not forget the good old runway photographs to see what’s really in store for the up and coming season! Turns out that everything from romantic ruffles down to clean cut cleavages go! From teeny tiny cropped tops over the good old striped boxer shorts down to sportive velvet suits – the choice is all yours:
Floaty dresses, 70ies meet 90ies silhouettes, super mini cropped tops and waist belts: Altuzarra’s Spring/Summer 2017 show was all about the fashion fun. His flirtatious designs wow-ed the fashion crowd and while we can not wait for textured and striped dresses and skirts to hit the stores, we are in the meantime going to stock up on extra large earrings, preferably the hoop kind!
One of the most anticipated shows of the season, or let’s just say each season: Victoria Beckham. The singer turned fashion designer delivers yet again, producing never seen before combinations. This time working velvet and silk to perfection. We are talking pleated skirts, soft tops, oversize two-piece combinations and sporty suits with a twist aka tiny bralets – with a sporty twist. Pairing her easy yet elegant styles with cut-out flats and wide boots, Victoria Beckham takes sporty chic to perfection! Not to forget the bag of the season: We are going to be carrying our pastel creations in one hand starting next season! Highlight of the show: Miss Beckham’s appearance – in flat (!!!) sandals! Definitely a first!
Yesss! They are back, Alexander Wang’s one of a kind striped boxer-short styles. This time around paired with cropped blouses, jackets and feminine wrap around tops. Wang’s whole collection is a selection of summer must-haves. From colourful silk tops and skirts with black lace detail – that are best combined in different shades of colours – over the finest ripped denim combinations down to sparkly sequin skirts in maxi length (modelled by girl of the moment Kendall Jenner). Alexander Wang’s collection is so very wearable, 2017 and my absolute favourite of them all!
As of next year, you won’t have to think twice about which look to take on vacation – Jonathan Simkhai just answered all your needs with one collection! Over thirty styles, mostly all white dresses and two pieces featuring boho vibes with a fresh twist. The New York based designer is all about lace, a plunging neckline and soft materials with a high emphasis on structure. Let’s book a trip to Greece, pack the whole collection and simply wear one outfit a day…
Cushnie et Ochs
It’s all about the monochromatic look with a a few coloured outfits in between. Cushnie et Ochs’ collection for Spring/Summer 2017 is strong and bold. Tiny straps on floating silk dresses, elegant two-pieces topped off with clean cuts and cut-outs seen on everything from swim- to day-wear make for a strong collection. Think city business women on a night out and there you have your Cushnie et Ochs collection down to a T.
Plenty of ruffles, powerful flower prints and elegant cheques mixed in with lace detail and wide, buttoned up pants: Zimmermann always (!) is a girl’s wildest dream come true. The Australian fashion brand is s secret favourite of mine, not least thanks to its seemingly effortless looking frocks that serve the viewer – and wearer – with that extra bit “kaboom”! For Spring/Summer 2017 Zimmerman has yet again upped its game. And what can I say, bar to the brands’s amazing swimwear, I am now a huge fan of their latest ready to wear collection aka western-meets-boho vibe.
