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.

The unofficial rule of fashion is that three marks the trend. With another New York Fashion Week come and gone, we look back to the one thing that was noticed across all runway shows: the color Red!
With plenty of feminine splashes of bold red and pretty in pink shades on the runways at Donna Karan, Nanette Lepore and Porsche Design. We are absolutely in love with these flirty vibrant hues for fall!

After countless amounts of shows, hairspray bottles used, models cat-walking down the runway and 2 of our favorite New York designers’ shows, Donna Karan and Nanette Lepore, New York Fashion Week has come to an end. As we jump the Atlantic sea to London today, we're reflecting on what the Big Apple has served us these past 8 days!
On the catwalk, some trends emerged early:
Donna Karan returned to her urban roots for spring, delivering a beautiful collection featuring languid dresses slung with leather belts at the hips, softly constructed coats and jackets that slipped on like a robe, an inviting palette of sea blues and warm, sunbaked browns.
While Nanette Lepore drew inspiration flowing from Charles Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du mal, Nanette cites with neo-romanticism as her biggest inspiration for her Spring/Summer 2014 collection with deep reds, soft elegant blues and clean chic whites.
