New York Fashion Week: 8 Things Looking Forward To from Designers

©ourtesy of  graziadaily.co.uk

New York Fashion Week here, with just a few days left before normal life turns into an elbow-jabbing, style-frenzied, cocktail-heavy New York Fashion Week we can’t help but think of the exciting things to come. January has flown past us quicker than Mo Farah, but we’re ready to pack our cold-weather kit and get FROWing. There are many things to look forward – or hope for – during NYFW: we’ll even see the silver lining of the frosty situation as on streets, it does, after all, generate some impressive winter dressing. Scroll down to see the eight things we’re crossing toes and fingers and faux fur scarves for…

1: New York Fashion Week: Kim Kardashian and Kanye FRONT ROW Action.

Especially considering Yeezus is still reportedly on a mission to get KK onto the front cover of US Vogue. May the match-matchy super-stealthy outfit parade commence. Stilettos in sub-zero temperatures shall soon become the norm.

2: Manolo Blahnik and Sarah Jessica Parker’s Shoe Line Will Be Officially Revealed IN THE FLESH @ New York Fashion Week.

A shoe collaboration made in heaven, quite possibly even crafted by little fashion industry cherubs, will surely be the toast of the town. We’re talking of course about Manolo Blahnik pairing up with SJP. Although we’ve already seen the full collection pics online, this is the chance to try ‘em out for real. The actress has famously long been a fan of the designer’s stilettos since her days as Carrie in Sex and the City, so expect snaking queues of superfans when they launch in a pop up shop in Nordstrom on March 2.

The fashion capital’s first ever fashion show for curvy girls showed off couture from plus-size labels.

No heroin chic here! The first ever plus-size fashion week in Paris celebrated womanly curves in all their glory. Dubbed Pulp Fashion Week – the word “pulp” in French conjuring up luscious fruit – the event was organized by Histoire de Courbes, a Paris-based fashion group that celebrates larger women. Weeks after labels like Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Lanvin showed off their Spring 2014 collections at Paris Fashion Week, the Pulp events were a triumph for plus-size-friendly designers and the women who wear them. French labels La Belle Affranchie, Maryse Richardson, Tamboo Bamboo and Femme Fabuleuses were among the brands sported by the models, who strode the runway in styles ranging from lingerie to couture to sportswear. “Now please let’s welcome women with fabulous curves!” the Histoire de Courbes website announced in English. “What better than a real Fashion Show for the Pulp women?” While some in the fashion industry have moved to address concerns over too-thin models – including bans on models who are under age 16 and who  “appear underweight” walking in shows – skinny is still the predominant aesthetic. In September’s New York Fashion Week, Eden Miller became the first designer to show a plus-size label at Fashion Week. Miller’s Cabiria line carries clothes in sizes 12-24.

Marc Jacobs & How Dark is Back

“Just LOVE this ad campaign”

marc-jacobsOn Friday the 13th it was all about gory darkness. After all, who said that Spring is all about light, fluidity and aethereal fabrics? For SS2014, Marc Jacobs’ message sounded loud and clear: Fuck Spring! His mood was irreverent punk meets embroidery winter fantasy, channelled through his rebel wig peroxide blondes (Cara Delevigne, Sky Ferreira, Lily McNemany and more). His mood (which is flirting with the doom & gloom of the day) is clearly mirrored into his collection for yet another season (after all last time he was refusing to get of his pyjamas).

Undoubtedly, there were pieces that will still make the cut, as the above dresses can perfectly coexist with Muiccia’s take on dark tropicana. And with the given weather condition changes that won’t give it a rest, something tells me that fashion afficionados will be into those outfits in no time. The only thing left to see is what he’s going to show on the Louis Vuitton show end of month.

Part II is here, with the no other than Derek Lam! New York Fashion Week is still on in full swing and I can’t keep up!!! I may just do multiple posts and weekend posts to keep up with everything! 

One thing I have to say about Derek Lam’s runway show was the shoes…. oh my gosh the shoes!!!! I instantly fell in love with all of them! Derek Lam decided to go a different route this year and not follow the rest of the designers with monochromatic looks, instead, he went with prints.

NYFW: Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2014

IT’S not often, actually, that fashion gives rise to new items. We’ve seen it, done it, got the T-shirt all before and we’re more concerned with rifling through the drawers of the past than we are setting a new agenda when it comes to the technicalities. Narciso Rodriguez has other ideas and this evening introduced us to the “half skirt”, a skirt and shorts hybrid that is just as suggestive as the mini but has a little more practicality about it. Nice. Elsewhere among the collection and the designer mostly stuck to square cuts, bandeau necklines and flat-looking shapes. From afar it looked masculine, androgynous but close-up there were slithers of shine and layers of pretty lace to imbue a sense of femininity. 5230cc6c2f7cc6e6d5000010
