(NYFW, DAY 1+2)

Mary Katrantzou mixed up Victorian maximalism with a Belle epoque essense all in a minimal canvas with contemporary materials. We loved the ruffle finish of the mid-length skirts along with the slick hair and the graphic modern makeup. The Issa collection was kind of familiar, yet it had quite interesting mixed up prints and materials layered up and folded in order to create a rather fresh finish.


Paul Smith's fall coloured, loose geometry was based on the ideas of the latest menswear collection. Wearable attires, completely harmonized with the classic british style always with a modern twist. The Topshop Unique collection was probably inspired by a different decade. The tweed and floral prints, paired with mini skirs and fury jackets made up for beautiful and totally approachable attires which didn't lack the fashion sense or the seasonal trends.


Alice Temperley's designs for Temperley London were based on different patterns and fall-appropriate layering. Total black outfits mixed with bright coloured, bohemian-looking, geometric prints. The orange-y makeup was really fresh with all the attention drawn to the eyes and the cheeks. Jonathan Saunder's  collection had a 70's edge to it with different abstract prints and kind of dull (in a nice way) winter colors, as well as striped pieces and various other geometrical prints.

David Koma's runway was full of form-fitted feminine, yet sexy pieces, with nude and leather details which created the perfect day-to-night collection. The Pringle of Scotland collection was full of Fall/Winter layering in dark -mostly black- tones. The show consisted of embossed details, glam knits and transparencies, which created a beautiful ready-to-wear collection that reached out to every viewer's/customer's expectations.


Pin-Stripped, subtly tartan or abstract printed with a '80's vibe all over, and yes we're talking about Vivienne Westwood's Red Label collection. One of the most intriguing things of this collection was the odd choice of face painting (by MAC Cosmetics) which may not set a makeup trend for this season but certainly was something interesting to watch and talk about, as somehow it worked perfectly with the outfits. If we tried to sum up the Preen by Thornton Bregazzi collection we would probably end up with something like that: Tartan, florals, sutures and a bit of monochromantic nude minimalism. A rather interesting mix of a collection to watch, nicely complemented by the red toned makeup choices for the eyes and the lips.

Lastly we would like to mention a couple collections which were quite opposites to each other.
Margaret Howell's strict styled catwalk was filled with autumnal colours and loose, catholic-school-appropriate lines and was probably one of my favourites to watch. It's totally wearable, even if it's not your kind of style, mostly because we all have those days when we need to be on point but still comfortable, and this collection was all about that. Puffy hair, abstract -almost kaleidoscopic- florals and bright colours complemented by fury details and jackets, and that's all we have to say about Matthew Williamson's collection. It was fresh and pleasurable with beautiful prints, amazing materials and a style straight out of the 70's.


Another interesting highlight was certainly the front row from many shows, as well as the style of the attendants.



Many great presentations took place but our favourite one had to be the one by Sophia Webster (because girls gotta love their shoes):


And lastly a few photos from the amazing European-friendly street style:
