Trend Report: New York Fashion Week Fall Winter 2015

Text by Wyanet Vaz. Celebrity images via Instagram

From an elaborate fur story to the 70s throwback, New York Fashion Week saw a gripping take on fashion, as well as Kanye West breaking his no-smile policy

We’re thankful to NYFW for schooling us on how to pull off the 70s look in a more worldly manner, without looking like we’re dressed for a costume party. Taking retromania seriously, you can expect high-waisted tangerine bottoms with sheer blouses and streamlined silhouettes. Those who want to defy structure, can explore bohemian fashion. Massive prints teamed with tousled waves, and loose fringes swayed across the runway. And, because it’s winter wear, you cannot afford to miss the darker side of layering with gilets, capes and of course, the use of Shearling and fur that dominated the collections. Boots were big, culottes were key, and comfort-wear found its rightful place on the scene.

Verve handpicks some of the best looks straight off New York Fashion Week Fall Winter 2015.

    We love: the brand's artistic approach towards water. The ripple-print silk organzas met their match with piercing red lip colours.
  • Delpozo

    We love: the really cool fluorescent yellow. Even though the silhouettes were simple, and the colours basic, the art-inspired collection turned out to be every editor’s pick and every blogger’s #OOTD.

    We love: the reinvention of skirtsuits. A prominent number was the glamorous flower-embroidered maroon gown with intricate lacework.
  • Tibi

    We love: the concept of more-is-more. Don’t miss the 70s-inspired shapes and their signature inset trims.
  • Calvin Klein

    We love: Marc Jacobs’ strong response to political instability. The militant and industrial mood found a voice amidst crisp prints and in-your-face branding.
