As New York Fashion Week Fall 2015 draws to a close, we take a look at the trends the style pack will be wearing this Autumn.
The new grunge look incorporates luxury fabrics, sophisticated cuts and feminine lace. Oversized gingham overalls and shirts were paired with lace-up booties and leather at Phillip Lim (right). At Alexander Wang (middle), we saw clunky, studded boots worn with perfectly tailored separates, chokers and punk rocker hair. While Rodarte (left), sent embellished preppy cardigans paired with leather, lace-up boots and studded accessories down the runway.
During their New York debut, KTZ (left) sent bold, colourful and unapologetically cool tribal patterns down the runway. At Tory Burch (middle), patterns were understated in warm autumn coloured knits and dresses. At BCBG Max Azria, tribal embroidery was paired with colourblock knits, camel-hues and fur for a more wearable take on the trend.
At Diane von Furstenberg (left) perfectly tailored waistcoats were paired with delicate blouses and accessories. At Tory Burch (middle), suits were sharply tailored in folksy fabrics and understated colours. At Narscisco Rodriguez, wide-leg trousers were paired with over-sized coats.
Shades of orange
Various shades of orange were sent down the runway this season. Jenny Packham (left) sent orange down the runway in several incarnations from sequin-embellished knits to an ombre embellished maxidress. Karen Walker’s 70s-inspired pieces (middle) featured orange in retro prints and fabrics. And a zesty colour-block creation from Prabal Gurung (right) energised an otherwise dark and moody runway.
Another popular hue that was featured in nearly every show was olive. Every piece in Jason Wu’s military-inspired fall line, from fur stoles, to leather separates, was presented in a classic olive tone, while Jenny Packham (left and right) experimented in various hues of olive and green.
It’s not very practical for the chilly season, but the prevalence of ethereal tulle skirts did not go unnoticed. Donna Karan (right) sent wispy skirts paired with over-sized blazers down the runway. At Lela Rose (left), barely-there skirts were embellished, worn over underskirts, and paired with luxurious knits. Marissa Webb’s midi skirts (middle) were paired with perfectly tailored blazers, opaque tights, crisp shirts and ties to create a perfectly on-trend androgynous look.
Fur featured in nearly every collection this season. At Prabal Gurung (left), fur coats were paired with knits in understated camel hues. At Jason Wu (right), fur stoles were draped luxuriously around shift dresses. Reem Acra (middle) incorporated fur in a more original fashion, drawing emphasis to shoulders.
At Lela Rose (left), fringe skirts featured on tulle shift dresses. Sally Lapointe teamed fringe skirts with over-sized knits and accessories, while Rebecca Minkoff added a more subtle fringe treatment to boho waistcoats and boots.
From Zac Posen’s elegant beaded separates (left) to Rebecca Minkoff’s fur-embellished tulle ensembles (middle) and Thakoon’s heavily textured tapestries (right), style has never been more tactile.
With an increased focus on utility and androgynous silhouettes, lace featured in most ranges as a cheeky challenge to the status quo. At Tome (left) lace pencil skirts were sent down the runway. Marissa Webb’s lace blouse (middle) was one of the highlights from her ultra-fem show and at Altuzarra (right), lace took center stage, paired with knee-high boots.
