Round-up : The Best of NYFW and LFW

New York and London - a cities which are recognised as some of the world's top fashion capitals. As you will know, both NYC and London play hosts to one of four major fashion weeks globally, and the shows and presentations for the spring collection have just come to a close. Nowadays through social media etc. we're able to connect with places all around the world so luckily, due to a bucket-full of Pre-U work, lack of funds and an even smaller number of connections with people 'in the know', we were still able to see the highlights of the week in the comfort of our own homes. Showcasing both new talent and more recognisable designers, NYFW and LFW had a lot of diversity in it's presentation of the Spring/Summer 2016 collections - here are our favourites from the weeks...

NYFW (Arianne's Favourites)
1) Nanette Lepore - I love this collection, as well as the colour/colour scheme and silhouettes are some of my favourites, such as a-line skirts, wide trousers and simple bandeau tops. I am also obsessed with the cheeky slogans and messages which featured on Lepore's designs, as they show that fashion really does not have to be taken seriously.
 2) Sandy Liang - Out of all of the SS16 collections I have seen so far, this is the one of the few which I see as wearable off the out of the show space. Liang stuck to minimal designs, such as culottes and shirts, but added a modern and edgy twist by using small details such as fraying, sheer panels and embellishment, as well as nice textures such as leather, fur and denim.
 3) Alexander Wang - Wang brought out an amazing collection (no surprises there), which was filled with both more sporty and more grungy looks, two things which I really like about the Alexander Wang aesthetic, complete with darker tones and fabrics such as silk and denim.

LFW (Vera's Favourites)
1)  Amanda Wakeley - This collections caught my eye as there is an interesting combination of shapes and textures within Wakeley's designs. I also love the fact that she has included aspects such as low necklines and exposed shirts to add a bit more originality and making the SS16 collection more youthful.
 2) Joseph - I really like the minimalism and simplicity of the monochrome and pale colour palette, yet the different fabric textures, such as plain combined with shinier or sheer elements, make the collection so much more unique.

 3) Paul Smith - The new and revived collection from Paul Smith really caught my eye as I am in love with the combination of contrasting colours and rich hues with eccentric structures, similar to ones of Issey Miyake (one of my favourite designers).

  5. I really loved Joseph's & Amanda Wakeley's collection although I admittedly, shame on me, never heard of either of those designers! I love how minimal and monochrome they are (which combines my two favorite styles) and am really glad to see this trend continue into 2016! Gives me something to really look forward to :)
