A few days have passed since Fashion Week was over in New York and there followed a highlight after another. I don’t want deny of you the highlights of the shows, therefore a review of the NYFW 2017.
Finally, it’s off to Fashion Week in New York. For me it is the first time that I have been invited to the New York Fashion Week. That’s why a bit of nerve kitzel but also huge anticipation was announced.
These days, I was at shows like Verdad, Nicholas K, La Petite Robe and Anastasiia Ivanova. I would like to show you the highlights of these shows.
Verdad is a brand of the L.A. designer Louis Verdad. The inspiration of his latest collection comes from the streets of L.A.’s – dresses in a series of dark colors, long knitwear, blouses, voluminous tops and artistic layers. The classic Verdad design signatures include a bomber jacket and a plisse skirt – and I’m a real fan of these two combinations. I love the combo between chic and edgy.
DJ Rob Swift filled the room with deafening 90s hip-hop beats. The collection was also inspired by the decade of the golden age of hip hop. Since I was only 4 years old at the beginning of the 90s, I did not quite know this decade. But when I was a teenager I’m more into Hip Hop. That’s why this sound and the collection has made me really nostalgic.
“It’s a kind of glam street look” so the two designers Nicholas and Christopher Kunz.
This collection of Chiara Boni sprays in me a glamorous vibe with the urge to travel around the world. As inspiration, Boni took the chic woman of today. Frequent flyers, international globetrotter, guest of the most beautiful hotels, and all these with style.
Materials on the dresses such as mat and patent faux leather or velvet create beautiful graphics. With zippers, necklines and peplum the body of the woman is even more feminine.
The collection of Anastasiia Ivanova is an ode to love, inspiration, freedom and independence. Long dresses with fluttering sleeves, elegant necklines and a variety of patterns include her collection.
My absolute favorite dress of this collection is this sleeveless dark blue dress with floral pattern. It is very feminine and playful, but can also be very wild with the right combination (for example with a leather jacket).
