#NYFW S/S 17 New World | Day 8+9

Another season and a whole load of new collections. Do I care about the seasons? Maybe not so much. But a girl loves the fashion and the perspective in becoming a woman perhaps. New York, we’re coming for you first and I’m going to tell you what I think! Delpozo Have I told you just how much I adore Delpozo already? Josep Font, the man behind Delpozo has other ideas in mind that keep spinning and spinning. His bizarre perspective of beauty works. Whilst there are clothes that make women ‘femme fatale’ – dangerous, confident and somewhat demanding, Delpozo designs for the woman who’s grounded yet out-spoken – or shall we say, quietly outspoken? She’s friendly to the eye, non-piercing but still alluring through her beauty and perspectives. It’s definitely a fresh approach compared to the femme fatale muse, at which I need to ask – what’s the deal with being dangerous anyways? Font continued to explore this season in a more proportional manner. He divided the body into seemingly different shapes whilst still allowing it to be pleasing to the eye. Nothing too crazy …

#NYFW S/S 17 Rock ‘n’ Rolla | Day 6+7

Another season and a whole load of new collections. Do I care about the seasons? Maybe not so much. But a girl loves the fashion and the perspective in becoming a woman perhaps. New York, we’re coming for you first and I’m going to tell you what I think! Proenza Schouler There is no stopping this design duo! The only way was up as they amplified the volume of their staple cuts, innovative fabrics and colour palettes. It was only appropriate to continue watching (not just out of respect – although yes) but because it was really that good. The show began with volumes in an A-line silhouette – though not in its typical sense with asymmetric play (although let’s be clear – there is nothing typical about Proenza Schouler). These volumes then burst into further definitions – stripes, deeper and bolder colours…and not least, beautiful, beautiful pattern-cutting. There was the criss-cross paneling which we can associate to being Proenza’s signature, that was cut closely to the body. This criss-cross notion then followed into a stripe outfit (not shown) that maximised …

#NYFW S/S17 Classy Woman Explores | Day 4+5

Another season and a whole load of new collections. Do I care about the seasons? Maybe not so much. But a girl loves the fashion and the perspective in becoming a woman perhaps. New York, we’re coming for you first and I’m going to tell you what I think! Dion Lee Every season during New York Fashion Week, I look forward to a few names and Dion Lee is amongst one of them. This time around, the Australian-born was inspired by refracted light which translated into ‘sliced fabric’ that was quite extraordinary and somewhat futuristic. The trench coat was a particular starting point that was deconstructed and reconstructed into one-colour-one-tone outfits. The trench coat was dissected at intricate points such as the collar-bone or the ankle. Such attentive decision affirms great designer sensibility. Dion Lee loves to play and re-modernise and this was no exception. Victoria Beckham Last season, Victoria Beckham confessed to having grown into her own, and perhaps with that in mind, she relaxed and played a bit more this season. You might also argue that …

#NYFW S/S 17 Growth! | Day 3

Another season and a whole load of new collections. Do I care about the seasons? Maybe not so much. But a girl loves the fashion and the perspective in becoming a woman perhaps. New York, we’re coming for you first and I’m going to tell you what I think! Red Valentino It can be daunting for a young person to view fashion, especially if they’re not quite at the age of womanhood just yet. It’s a strange, grey area between adolescence and true adulthood but the advantage of this, is the ability to have fun experimenting whilst still doing it right. Red Valentino offers such options with easy-to-wear A-line silhouettes which are every bit flattering whilst still keeping your youth. There was a new take on a ‘sun and beach’ theme  in the form of colour blocks and not your average sun-ray stripes. The wide-legged denim jumpsuit was particularly my favourite because…who says you can’t wear a full outfit of denim on the beach? Novis A relatively new brand who are into their sixth season already, …

#NYFW S/S 17 New Romantics | Day 1+2

Another season and a whole load of new collections. Do I care about the seasons? Maybe not so much. But a girl loves the fashion and the perspective in becoming a woman perhaps. New York, we’re coming for you first and I’m going to tell you what I think! Adeam I read the label name Adeam and immediately think of ‘a dream’. I look at the collection and I also think the same…’a dream’. Perhaps the label name is a real play on words but the products are not a joke – these are clothes that bridge the gap between girl and woman. A romantic affair through lack of flesh showing because romance is a feeling after all. What was most impressive was the use of fabric in volume and fluidity all at the right spots. The shoulders were particularly central to the collection. Adam Selman Do you ever reminisce what it means to feel young? Well, Adam Selman has the young ones’ minds at heart. Think surfer girl times skater girl with a touch of ‘boyfriend’. Our …
