New York Fashion Week coverage provided by The Fashion Spot
We're halfway through New York Fashion Week and already trends are appearing. Spring will see a big focus on the midriff, with crop tops, cut-outs and bra tops aplenty (start doing those crunches now!) Here are highlights from 3 of the best shows of the past few days.
Laser cutouts were the name of the game at Alexander Wang this season as the designer proved he is worthy of all the hype. Showing lots of structured but loosely fitted silhouettes that stood slightly away from the body, nearly every look was finished with laser cutouts for a more fashion-forward direction than we've seen in years past.
This collection might as well have been called 'a fashion editor's dream.' Joseph Altuzarra has many fans within the industry and he certainly catered for them this season. The CFDA award winner was under a lot of pressure this season and few would say he didn't live up to it. He demonstrated his tailoring skills with exceptional flare and the collection was incredibly well played. There were separates for day, easy looks for night, and looks in between that would cater to everyone from a 25-year-old fashion girl to a 45-year-old CEO.
Victoria Beckham has said that years of being photographed have taught her the importance of garments looking good from every angle and it's clear she has taken that to heart with her label. Showing yet another stellar collection, this season Beckham added new silhouettes. In addition to the fitted over-the-knee dresses she has already proven she can perfect, she introduced some longer and looser ones as well as some shorter tennis-like skirts. The lineup was clean, streamlined, and modern and, in an interesting twist, Beckham opted to have her models wear Manolo Blahnik flats instead of the sky-high heels she is best known for.
