Starting off our weekend round up of New York Fashion Week is the ever cool downtown designer Alexander Wang. Loved the world over for his easy-to-wear urban silhouettes and formal loungewear, Wang failed to disappoint once again with his Fall 2011 collection.
With sleeveless parkas, luxe fur jackets and others in leather, black and grey separates, metallic footwear, satin pants, leather panel detailing, multi-split tunics, open toe leather boots and tassels galore, his autumn offering is perfect for that achingly cool Nineties inner city girl.
Next up was our own home-grown British designer Victoria Beckham who, despite recently announcing her fourth pregnancy, didn’t let the bump get in the way. With impeccable tailored eveningwear in abundance, Ms. Beckham delivered a truly classic collection of trademark pencil dresses that we’ve come to know and love – not to mention a tweed grey, burnt orange and cranberry colour palette with the occasional pop of sunshine yellow seen across cocooning minidresses, laidback loosened silhouettes and draped fabric shawls – the epitome of chic, wearable every day staples.
Last but not least was Diane Von Furstenberg with her eagerly anticipated vibrant ‘Goddess’ collection, where the signature colour-injected stripes and floaty separates simply oozed feminine fantasy. With bold graphic prints, sun-infused patterns, metallic accents, gladiator sandals, signature ‘broken cloud’ detailing and neon green and yellow splashes of vibrancy, the collection was undoubtedly the picture perfect backdrop for summer.
