New York Fashion Week: Trend Report Day 4

[title subtitle="Featuring Tracy Reese, Vivienne Tam, Moncler Grenoble & Jonathan Simkhai"][/title] Day 4 of New York Fashion Week had a lot of stand out moments that may go down in Fashion history. Starting with Moncler Grenoble’s Fashion Week presentation held at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom. The presentation was complete with singing, a 4-level structure and hydraulics. If you weren’t there to catch it live, watch it here! And how did our team fair on Day 4? Well even with some mishaps (missing charger, mic and a sick team member) we received full coverage per usual! We are also happy to report that Maryna is feeling well and back on the scene today for Day 5 coverage! Let’s check out the trends seen on the runway.

[title subtitle="Color"]The Trends[/title]

Most of us know our complimentary colors; orange and blue, red and green, yellow and purple. Instinctively these color pairings go together. But what about orange and grey? A color combination not thought of often, but when Jonathan Simkhai puts them together you remember.  Tracy Reese showed us that outerwear in bold, warm colors is the way to go for Fall! Her red bolero cape, and yellow overcoat are the perfect accessory to any look.

The forest or “in the woods” prints seem to be a popular choice for designers this season.  Tess Giberson showed off a silhouetted forest Day 2 and Tracy Reese featured a forest at dawn print on a few of her looks.  It truly was a gorgeous print and looked amazing coming down the runway.  VivienneTam also had a unique variety of prints from animal prints (and not animal print like cheetah but prints with animals on them) to more mosaic patterns.

[title subtitle="Style, Cut, & FIT"][/title]

Who says you have to be covered up in tons of fabric just because it’s cold?? Definitely not Jonathan Simkhai.  Jonathan went all out to show that sexy is in, even in the winter! A continuing trend across all 4 days of Fashion Week has been the asymmetric hemlines in tops and bottoms.  Jonathan had a very cool asymmetric sweatshirt with a zipper.  Vivienne Tam kept her hemlines for the most part at the knee. She also sent out these cool pant silhouettes that would almost be harem style except they weren’t wide at the hips. They were baggy down to the ankles where they contoured down to a tapered ankle.

If Jonathan was all about leather and alligator skin, than Vivienne tam was all about eyelet and embroidered fabrics.

Vivienne Tam enhanced her looks with really fun & abstract printed tights!
