Fashion Week Favourites: New York and London

February 24, 2017

Another Fashion Week is upon us, this time focusing on Fall 2017 trends, and we have gathered the best looks so far form New York City and London. Common themes to some of our favourite collections have been statement outerwear and floral prints which have become classics for Autumn/Winter looks.
Check out some of our favourite moments below:
1. Preen: Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi were inspired by the nineties London art scene and the suffragette movement (according to The Business of Fashion), resulting in statement outerwear pieces, ruffled details and floral prints for a delicate feminine touch that contrasts with the punk tough feel most of the looks have to them. The colour scheme was mostly black, white and monochrome with some colourful accents.
2.  Prabal Gurung: The collection's main themes were mostly metallics, statement outerwear and florals. The tone was initially quite neutral but it became progressively more colourful and diverse. The show closed with a political statement from the designer, that used the classic slogan tees to send out messages of support to minorities, women and refugees. A nod to social justice in the current political landscape.
3. Creatures of the Wind: feathers, fur and statement outerwear were the common themes to the collection that had a vintage and authentic feel to it. Designer duo Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters was inspired by concepts of community, friendship and shared ideals.
4. MM6 Maison Margiella: Margiela's diffusion line presented very wearable looks (with the exception of phone chargers as belts, perhaps?) and classic pieces like tailored blazers, denim jeans and pinstriped sets of long coats and loose fit trousers.

5. Maryam Nassir Zadeh: by far one of our favourite labels at the moment. The collection showed minimalist footwear and accessories, neutral tones, pops of colour and tailored pieces.

6. Frame: Loads of denim and classic pieces, feminine blouses and leather casual wear. Another favourite of the season! Flared trousers, crisp ruffled white shirts and velvety suits are some of the looks that caught our eye.

7. Topshop Unique: Topshop's most exclusive line presented us with a mix of textures and a contrast between casual wear and feminine pieces: long flowy trench coats paired wth skintight minis, mohair coats on top of delicate tule dresses and oversized jumpers paired with silky skirts.

8. Christopher Kane: Inspired by "tough femininity", the designer paired old school fabrics with futuristic styles and silhouettes and styled them with fur lined Crocs and sponge-lined heels.

9. Marques ' Almeida: Last but definitely not least, MA showed us a super energetic collection with loads of patterns and colours added to the mix. Yellow, electric blue and pink were some of the accent colours. All this to the sound of Nina Simone and featuring Sofia, one of BOAW's girls!
