New York Fashion Week may be over but the excitement for the SS17 collections carries on, with trends blooming in await for 2017. It’s the fashion month were all our favourite fashion girls, A-Listers and designers head out to the top runway shows to showcase, or view the collections for SS17 and with that we can have an idea on just what we will be wanting to wear next summer.
Victoria focused a lot around practicality in her SS17 collection, stating that ‘People have to wear the collection.’ Therefore she picked easy to wear cuts, colours and prints a lot for the minimalist woman in mind. White was a colour palette we expected to see in her collection however she contrasted this with bright, almost neon like colours throughout her designs. Another thing we saw that we weren’t expecting to see in her collection was Velvet materials; which according to the street style game and runways this year is set to be the material of the moment.
For the Ralph Lauren show, Ralph himself actually closed a whole street in New York especially for his runway. There’s not many designers that would be able to do this, but Ralph is a man of many talents. Ralph’s collection for SS17 was something completely out of the ordinary for him; almost unrecognisable with a lot of us fashion folk. There were cowboy vibes, crossed with heavy accessorising such as large jewellery, cowboy hats and buckled belts. The whole Native American idea took a different turn and left us with a fresh sense for Ralph Lauren.
Micheal Kors SS17 showed us a bright and colourful collection with some unique styles and prints in which we had never seen before in any of his collections. The pieces are easy to wear and the bright floral designs have that 60s look we always forget we love. Micheal Kors never fails to give us a collection that has all of the femininity we need for summer.
