So that was New York Fashion Week. In a flurry of shows, presentations, dance performances, and plays – what stuck? Which trends will define SS15 and create the most buzz commercially? The Apple’s Watch timely (apologies!) launch marks a new era, finally taking irksome connotations of ‘wearable technology’ away from Silicon Valley and into the covetable fashion space. Whilst the gadgetry grabbed many of the week’s headlines thanks to excellent press-courting, the week also delivered some exciting new direction in wearable-wearables. Here, we share our top 10 trends for SS15.
Colour for SS15 is exciting: the poster paint shades of red, yellow, blue and green felt positively raucous compared to the mute pastels of the past summer season. The all-over whites we’ve been seeing for two seasons have returned, most notably at Michael Kors, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Victoria Beckham, but they felt freshest when paired with slices of sunshine yellow, truest red, high energy blues and grassy green. The bolder took these colours in their own right: a divine pair of billowing green pants at Delpozo, a fringed Yves Klein knit at Milly, Kors’ radiant yellow buckled smock and a traffic-stopping tomato skater dress at DKNY. The graphic combo of black and white attracted a big following: Narciso Rodergiuez, Opening Ceremony, Versus, Rodarte… we could go on, but take our word, it’s a trend.
