NYFW Highlights: DAY 3

5:53 PM

After a long break, Chromantics team makes a major comeback just in time for one of the most important seasons of the year. As you may have guessed, it's that time of the year again. The one when we all try to catch up with every single show (and sometimes fail miserably). But -as always- somewhere along the way we'll manage once again to bring to you our POV from all our favorite shows, trends and after parties from the first day of NYFW 'till the very last one of Paris Fashion. So, let's dig in the shows of NYFW Day 3.(DAY 1,DAY 2

Joseph Altuzzarra’s escaping mood took us far away from the dirty streets of NY. Inspired by his own Spanish roots, this collection was all about craftsmanship and natural materials. With its natural tones and his attention to detail, this collection was one to love. The few things that stood out to us – even more- were all the patterned attires as well as the all the croc pieces (which we may or may not need in our lives).  Keeping the escapism dream alive, Christian Siriano took us to a glamorous trip to Morroco with his amazing day to night collection.  Starting off with blush, silver and white hues, complemented by geometric transparencies and feathery details the collection took a 360 turn by the end with the airy muted bright, almost tunic type dresses.


There's no one better at urban sportswear other than Lacoste. This season with an Olympian inspiration, most outfits were cleverly crafted in order to reminiscent the victorious moments when the athletes have their flags drapped across them, Certainly a fresh and interesting perspective for a classic sportswear brand. Keeping up with the vibrand colour palette but on a completely different tone the Baja East show, had a contemporary 90's sense to it that somehow looked stylish and harmonized with the eastern details. Maybe it was the looser lines or the nicely, tie dyed looking designs but this collection worked nicely, bonding different elements together in a show that is certainly worth to be talked about. 

Jill Stuart's show was one of my absolute favourites so far. With his flary details, the amazing silk pieces and a colour palette wich included everything magnificent pastels to a few black and red numbers, this collection had the sense of "something old, something older and everything new" as we saw a decade infusion between the 80's, the 90's and the 00's. I can't say that there was a piece that I wouldn't absolutely wear or love, even though a few silky ones might be a bit unforgiving. Lastly, there's not enough words for the bits of outwear we saw on this runway which definetely gave us winter wardrobe goals, even if it's a spring collection. The Monique Lhuillier show gave us a true Spring/Summer colection with vibrant colours, lots of mixing and matching as well as one of my old favourite trends, colourblocking. Florals were everywhere, embroided or not, and sometimes even abstract as the collection turned out to be one of the classiest ones so far. Even though it's a ready to wear, it definetely included a few outfits we'd die to see on a red carpet.


At Tibi the lines became looser and relaxed yet somehow the designer managed to make everything looking feminine. The normocore inspiration ended up looking polished, probably due to the variation of cotton and silk fabrics as well as the colour palette which included a few interesting shades of blue, peach and oxblood among other things. Certainly one of the most intriguing things was the sequin infused pieces which were made feminine even if they originally weren't. I'm not quite sure what was the inspiration behind Alexander Wang's collection but it certainly got us talking about it as it had it all: interesting lacings, loads of strips and fishnets and amazing *MUST HAVE* outwear. A few key points to check out: the alternation between the leather-denim pairing and those fabulous silk pyjama shirts as well as that fringed parka which was a piece to die for.

At Herve Leger by Max Azria the duo took the iconic bandage dress idea to the next level as they presented a collection with NO bandage dresses. With highly geometric, sillhouette enhancing prints the outfits that were presented were either straigh lined or had somekind of flare, making this collection feminine and sexy at the same time. The strict Dion Lee lines were mostly geometric and always precise. With a colour palette which included white, blush and blue black pieces the folds and the new age fringes presented Lee's true talent and craftmanship in a nicely put together collection.


Rebecca Minkoff's collection started off with a few innocent looking, cold toned ivory pieces as it quickly progressed to the sexy dark numbers. With a few spare prints, a bit of geometry and some always returning fringes this show was a people pleaser as it had it all. Mara Hoffman's collection was heavily printed and took us straight to dreamland. With the "Blue Skies" vibe she stayed true to her classic sense of designing with a bit of minimalism and lots of mixing and matching. We absoluterly loved the pairing hair scarves as they represented the amazing styling behind this show.
