From the sleek and futuristic to the street art found throughout New York and the pure, beachy flair found on the coast of California, New York Fashion Week not only brought personality but personal inspirations to each Spring/Summer 2015 collection.
This season, Porsche Design’s creative director Thomas Steinbrueck labeled his show “Zentech” and riffed on elemental Japanese minimalism with an enthusiastic does of futuristic style. For the women, a palette full of navy’s and neutrals, he teamed tube tops with flowing, high-waisted trousers, figure-hugging shell tops with plunging necklines and a draped maxi shirtdress. For the men, Steinbrueck fashioned up cargo jackets with collarless white shirts, baggy shorts and attractive ribbed knit sweaters.
From the sleek yet futuristic to the street art inspired Donna Karan collection. “Time to show your colors and paint the town with urban chic.” With black and white scribble print skirts and high-waisted pants paired with structured bras, to the vibrant red V-neck dresses and belted shirtdresses in indigo and ivory – the entire collection looked fresh throughout all the prints and embroideries.
From the east coast art to the inspiration of her glamorous vacations spent in California and the South of France, Nanette Lepore’s Spring 2015 collection provided a glimpse into her pure, beachy, unadulterated fun lifestyle with uplifting colors of yellows, tranquil blues and blush pinks. Channeling a coastal sensibility, Nanette Lepore created a laid-back attitude with zesty opening shirtdress with multiple pockets along with silk slips and sporty swimsuits.

In her new role as Tiffany’s design director, Francesca Amfitheatrof took the measure of the city—its power, energy and daring—and captured it in the graphic Tiffany T.
Born in New York, Tiffany T is an icon for a new era. Amfitheatrof dedicates it to the world’s great cities and the global travelers who gravitate to art and culture—and the edge, where creativity sparks change. The graphic angles and clean lines of Tiffany T create a message that is bold, unapologetically modern and fueled by an American ethos of design. The collection designs a symbol for modern life and the relentless energy that flows through New York and drives art and culture around the world.
Tiffany artisans are the master builders of Amfitheatrof’s brilliant play of angles and curves. Their skill with 18 karat gold—rose, yellow and white—and sterling silver gives Tiffany T the strength of architecture with which it travels from chic to sublime. Minimal bracelets and monumental cuffs perfectly contour the wrist. Multiple chains of varied lengths and elegant pendants drape the neckline. Rings stack seamlessly and earrings move with grace. Altogether, Tiffany T is a rich mix of options, layered in striking looks of pure ease and sensuality.
Shop the Tiffany T Collection at the Tiffany & Co. boutique located on the second level of The Shops at Crystals.
The new Rock Season Collection from Brazilian jeweler H.Stern combines romantic nature with rock n’ roll style.
Animals in varying shades of gold and precious stones revere the richness of color, shape and charm of Nature. Creatures are daringly reinterpreted, employing rock style elements such as spikes and the darkened metal finishing to add an edgy spirit to the jewels. The result is an unusual contrast to the organic shapes.
The H.Stern creative team employed punk rock style elements to add a progressive spirit to the jewels. Music’s counterculture style such as spikes and a darkened metal finishing create an unusual contrast to the organic shapes of the jewelry. The result can be seen in rings, earrings, pendants and bracelets that also bear a resemblance to Victorian style.
