Big names and budding designers, the New York Fashion Week inaugurated the month of new women’s collections.
Fall/Winter 2022/2023 has had a pretty busy schedule, with over 50 events.
Nevertheless, the absence of veterans like Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs and Rodarte has been inevitably noticed.
The shows by Hervé Leger and Proenza Schouler have been the main events of the first day of this fashion month.
In the coming days, spotlights on Jason Wu, Christian Siriano, Brandon Maxwell, Coach and Prabal Gurung.
New York Fashion Week: looks by Altuzarra, Carolina Herrera and Tory Burch
A nomad mood for the next fall-winter by stylist Joseph Altuzarra, who brought on the stage a crescendo of macro paillettes and metallic applications.
Waists are tight, collars are covered in fur, and skirts have agitane allure with floral fantasies.
Very different the atmosphere on the catwalk of Carolina Herrera, whose aristocratic style has been celebrated by creative director Wes Gordon with simil-couture dresses.
Voluminous silhouettes and wide gown in tulle are characterized by deep neckline, while the jackets are enriched with oversize sleeves.
Bright nuances typical of Latin America are a nod to the Venezuelan origin of the stylist.
Celebrating New York, Tory Burch aims for contaminations between uptown and downtown, with sleek trousers, striped blouses and layerings.
Focus on accessories: belts, purses, colored foulards and squared points mules.
Michael Kors and Gabriela Hearst close the New York Fashion Week in style
Handcraft and upcycling are the key of the next cold season for Gabriela Hearst.
Chloé’s creative director presents a highly artistic collection, with a sustainable soul, thanks to recycled fabrics and handmade works.
Knitwear and pull are alternated to more formal suits to give an androgynous touch.
On the opposite, Michael Kors unveils the true New York glamour.
An essential elegance made of soft fabrics like jerseys, but also made of sequins and paillettes, to shine like a Hollywood star.
Wide coats and eco fur coats conceal cocktail dresses and are alternated with tailleur and geometric dresses for the day.
The cast of this show is extraordinary, with sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, Irina Shayk, Emily Ratajkowski, Natasha Poly and Isabeli Fontana.
Thom Browne and Alexander McQueen are the next in line in the Big Apple
Even at the end of the fashion week, the spotlights are still on the Big Apple.
On May 15th, Alexander McQueen will fly overseas from London to launch, off-schedule, his new collection.
Also Thom Browne will be in town, with his fall/winter collection on April 29th, just before the annual Met Gala on May 2nd.
The new generation at the London Fashion Week
Having missed the January appointment with men’s shows, the London Fashion Week comes back on stage, with collections for him and her.
The British capital has witnessed some heavy absences though, like Mulberry, Victoria Beckham, Christopher Kane and Emilia Wickstead.
Besides Alexander McQueen, who will fly to New York, also Burberry has missed the show, but will be in London off-schedule for March 11th.
So, green light for budding stylists, for many years the heart and soul of the London kermesse.
From Bora Aksu to Edward Crutchley and Molly Goddard, from Richard Quinn to Temperley London, David Koma and Simone Rocha.
In addition to that, the already known Roksanda, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, Erdem, Rejina Pyo and Bethany Williams.
