Concepts & Inspiration from New York Fashion Week

Highlights from the F/W 2017 New York Catwalks

The Fall 2017 edition of New York Fashion Week brought forward an array of exciting concepts for the upcoming season in womenswear apparel, including innovations in material finishes and colour application. 3.1 Phillip Lim and Lacoste experimented with juxtaposing palettes, merging shades with masculine and feminine connotations through heavy layering techniques and sharp colour blockings. Materials were enhanced with a sports luxe aesthetic in Calvin Klein and Proenza Schouler’s collections, playing with fluid sheens and spongy matte surfaces for technical imitation effects.

Back to the Future – Lacoste

Titled ‘Back to the Future’, Felipe Oliveira Baptista drew from Lacoste’s heritage to create ‘Modern Classics’. The streamlined looks of the collection came from the head to toe mono-colour concepts. Lightweight parachute nylon with light bouncing qualities in warming tan made an impact for its innovation material use and forward thinking colour usage.

Lilac Wash – 3.1 Phillip Lim

3.1 Phillip Lim used a hot pink magenta as the backdrop to the New York Fashion Week Fall 17 show. Colour was evenly distributed throughout the black, white and tan looks. The first of 39 looks down the runway, highlighted a soft focus lilac. The colour clash of the overcoat set against the vivid flooring is a striking combination.

Neutral Premium – Prabal Gurung

Prabal Gurung gave a politically charged catwalk finale to a seamless Fall Winter collection. Muted tones at first were amped up with bursts of lime, forest green, petrol teal and volcanic red. Woollen bulky sweaters and knotted outerwear gave a ‘Neutral Premium’ quality to the collection.

A Fragmented Puzzle – Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham introduces a fragmented take on traditional colour blocking. A dusted navy base solidifies the skewed geometrics, adding a sense of structure to these off-beat placements. Fashion colour highlights give a nod to softly retro palettes, uplifted through shots of sunflower yellow and hockney blue.

Softly Sculpted Militant – Calvin Klein

The Fall 2017 collection by Calvin Klein sees silk borrow surface qualities from technical materials for a sophisticated, urban aesthetic. Matte finishes and softly structure drapes add density to these traditionally light handles. A striking contrast of primary red against purist white strengthens the modern military mood presented in the silhouettes.

Wrapped-Up Biker – Proenza Schouler

Proenza Schouler expresses the essence of New York City through their New York Fashion Week Fall 17 show. An oversized chopped-up aesthetic runs through the collection, with a strong biker influence apparent in the wet-look leathers and rubberised wire arm bangles.
