And that’s a wrap! Year after year, the entire divine.ca team waits impatiently for the fashion week shows, but New York is always our favorite. From discovering the newest trends to getting a glimpse inside the lives of artists and models alike, New York Fashion Week is the yearly celebration of fashion, and we’re here for it. Take a look at our 6 favorite runway shows of the week.
Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2018 ready-to-wear collection saw the (dim) light on a narrow runway. The blown-up designs are reminiscent of 80s haute couture, with a fierce combination of bold shoulders and pleated trousers. Marc Jacobs has never been scared of playing around with colors, and did not disappoint this season either.
Every fashion writer and their mothers could not deny the TheMatrix-esque designs of Wang’s fall 2018 collection. Partly athleisure, mostly edgy, and completely Wang, the collection reflects the designer’s continuous growth as a designer and as a citizen of the fashion world. Wachowskis approved.
Is that popcorn, you ask? Yes it is. Calvin Klein’s fall 2018 ready-to-wear collection was a dream-like combination of both modest Tenenbaum-like jackets Wes Anderson would probably wear himself and intricate dresses. I still can’t get over the one foot deep popcorn floor, though.
The ‘into the woods’ theme of the Coach runway was equally depicted through the clothing, the makeup, and the set design. With Selena Gomez as their muse this past summer, this period of reinvention is seemingly never-ending – and we don’t want it to end. Stuart Vevers’ ‘ladies of the woods’ walked – floated? — down the runway in gorgeous gowns and winter paisleys.
Oscar De La Renta
Flowers, embroideries, and a lot of jaw-dropping, Oscar De La Renta’s Fall 2018 collection embodies the idea of ‘art inspired by art’. From the most stunning dresses ever (and I mean it) to the most detailed accessories, it’s hard to not love the label whose aim is to make women look and feel beautiful.
3.1 Philip Lim
“I think that idea of turning discarded materials into something beautiful really speaks to the immigrant experience”, Lim said after the show. The whimsical and unisex pieces oddly give off an extremely romantic aura. The designer has never been scared of mixing patterns, but the highlight of the collection are the bold colors.
