At her Spring ’15 show, Donna told me it is not only New York City that is iconic and inspiring. All cities are in their own way. But that didn’t stop her from devoting her collection to her favorite (and native) city. The name? New York Nation. The theme? The globalization of NYC style.
Sporty, sexy, cool: Alexander Wang for Spring 2015 is the Alex I initially fell in love with years ago. While I adore the bundled, androgynous look that comes with Fall, I have trouble fitting the heavy leathers, chunky knits, and menswear-inspired styles on my petite frame.
Derek Lam’s Spring ’15 show kicked off with sexy model of the moment, Anna Ewers, in a look that said it all. This collection is a top-notch reiteration of the easy chic of the 1970s.
Each Fashion Week brings something fresh and exciting, but Spring/Summer ‘15 is especially thrilling for me as the new NYFW host for Phoenix Media!
Working with Victoria Beckham for so many years, you come to realize one thing: There is absolutely nothing this determined and capable woman cannot do. Four children? No problem, whilst running an ever-expanding global empire, no less.
The one thing you can count on for certain when Prabal Gurung unleashes a new collection? Ironically, it’s the element of surprise. With a flair for the deftly dramatic and a gutsy, excitable kind of energy that’s so unique to his vision, you can always expect the unexpected from Prabal.
Jason Wu’s Spring ’15 collection gave way to my favorite show thus far. Simply put, it was beautiful. Sans bells and whistles, no stage antics: the clean, gleaming runway let the pieces, as well as the ladies wearing them, shine as they should.
I kicked off the week with the talented Peter Som, and his subtly Pop Art-inspired Spring ’15 collection felt the perfect way to start. Looking to classic all-American beauties, like Lauren Hutton, Edie Sedgwick, and Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, as his muses, he had women “who embody a certain boldness” in mind.
