Prior to his show, designer Michael Kors explained backstage that his spring/summer 2016 collection was all about the “yin and yang”, contrasting soft romanticism with masculine tailoring for a wholly new relaxed attitude. The clothes swung between two extremes: Belted coats worn over mannish pants and teamed with sandals suggested an easy, pared-back androgyny, while translucent tiered dresses and white shirts matched with full skirts didn’t come up short on womanly charm.
Folksy, ethereal and magical—Josep Font‘s latest offering for Delpozo took our breath away with couture-like volumes, intricate embroidery and Paddle-pop hues on delicate numbers that are every woman’s fantasy come true.
Jason Wu‘s latest outing for German brand Boss is a rosy indication that the Taiwanese-Canadian designer is settling into his role as Creative Director at the German brand just fine. Circumventing pillars painted with a colourful Bauhaus-inspired pattern, models paraded immaculate vest-coat hybrids, louche two-piece suits, pleated dresses and elegant top-handle handbags that not only stuck to Boss DNA of engineering clothes for the working woman, but also prove Wu’s the right man for the job.
Judging by the loud cheers that greeted Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez when they stepped out to take their bow, it’s obvious the audience were appreciative of the thought and effort that went into their newest collection. Bold and confident in their approach, the duo used ruffles, netting and pretty bows with long ribbon trails as leitmotifs to inject a much-needed jolt to New York Fashion Week.
