Runway Report: NYFW S/S 2019 Roundup of my Favourites!

Wednesday, September 12, 2018



It’s the most wonderful time of the year! 

Fashion month is upon us and the first stop in New York City did not disappoint! Every year, designers release their new ready to wear collections for Spring and Summer to give insight into where the fashion world will be heading with industry elites in attendance. For all of us mere mortals who are not apart of this crowd, New York Fashion Week is this dream world where all of your idols come together to celebrate the thing you love the most! 

From the beautiful fabrics, accessories, and of course the models, we all need to appreciate the fantasy world that it creates for a week before it moves onto London, Milan, and finally Paris. Of course I had to share with all of you my love and adoration for fashion month, and what better way than with a post dedicated to some of my favourite looks from the runway! 

I’m sure I’ve mention this before, but fashion week holds a special place in my heart. I used to sit in class listening to lectures while live streaming some of the runways at the same time. Probably not my best moment as a student, but I felt like in that moment I could feel like I am apart of the magic that is fashion week. For just that bit of time, I could be somewhere else, and during that time when I was unhappy and felt confused about what I was going to do with my life, this was my escape. This was my way of being able to let go of those stresses and just get wrapped up in it all. 

Now enough about me, you’re here for the fashion. Like I mentioned, these collections are for Spring & Summer collections and yes florals are involved (incase you thought maybe we wouldn’t continuously wear florals from season to season). 

I’ve chosen 4 collections that struck a chord with me and were a standout from the rest.

Let’s get into the fashion!

Rag & Bone

Rag & Bone really hit the mark when it came to off duty street style. The collection really had a variety of pieces that showed the true transition from the colder months to spring. From the hoodies under jackets, to oversized and muted tones. Among these looks, the collection also had models wearing utility jackets and athletic inspired items like pants with a side stripe. All of these pieces are fundamental to creating the perfect streetwear wardrobe. The collection also included some of the key trends that we're all loving right now. Like the snakeskin knee high boots which you can see in the photos above. Another key trend was the pop of red which the fashion world has been shining a light on for the last few seasons. Rag & Bone made it the bold colour of the collection used for outerwear or accessories. 

Key Concept: Off Duty Street Style is not going anywhere, mixing comfort with structure is key to achieving this look. 


Tibi

When I see masculine clothing and a collection of pieces which are inspired by menswear, I have to have it! Tibi had masculine cuts and oversized fits in items like trousers, shirts, and outfits which seemed gender neutral. Many of the looks within the collection also paid close attention to the natural waistline by emphasizing it with fabrics which wrapped around of the hips. The collection overall stayed away from anything high waisted and instead opted for a natural waist (again creating a more masculine appearance). As for the colour palette I loved the cool tones with the pops of pastels. Overall it was a runway filled with contemporary pieces that were uncomplicated in their design and fit. This collection is filled with simple yet effective pieces that you could easily build multiple outfits out of with a few combinations. 

Key Concept: Simple designs that you can invest in. Menswear is only gaining momentum in the fashion world, with a sharp contrast between gender neutral outfits in baby pink or light blue. 

Carolina Herrera

This collection was probably my favourite of all, because it embodied everything that's joyful and fun about spring while pairing it with classic designs and fits. Caroline Herrera started with pieces like a plaid pant suit and then a skirt suit, taking on the hot trends of the moment with brighter and bolder colours in the prints. The collection overall was very vibrant and colourful with bohemian inspired florals in dresses or even in the suede embroidered boots. I loved how the collection took on the joyful and laidback nature of bohemian prints and pieces and then paired them with stronger structures like a blazer with a strong shoulder or more tailored pieces like blouses and trousers. Together the collection was playful and preppy, but not childish. I think it's a great way to inject something fun and interesting into our mostly neutral wardrobes, especially when we're moving from one season to the next. 

Key Concept: Bold colours with classic designs. Finding the balance between fun and sophisticated, it's all about injecting a pop of colour while keeping some structure. For head to toe colour, it's all or nothing, find feminine flirty pieces. 

Zimmerman

Now for a collection that I consider to be completely different from the other 3 collections I've previously shared with you. Zimmerman is known for its feminine details like ruffles and airy fabrics, and this collection definitely does not stray away from that! With classic Zimmerman elements such as the ruffled hems on the skirt and blouses made of luxurious fabrics. What this spring collection also brought was an element of sexiness and what I would consider to be an edge. With the deep V blouses, mini shorts, or cut outs, the message was clear. Now I definitely don't see myself ever wearing those mini shorts, but there's something about the eclectic prints and feminine ruffles that spoke to me. As most of you already know, I can't say no to a good ruffle!

Key Concept: 70s inspired fashion is going nowhere, and it's adopting the eclectic prints and tones and combining it with ultra feminine elements like ruffles. The fit for this collection is all woman, whether it the length to show off the legs or belting the waistline of boxier dresses to show of your shape. 


These collections embodied all of my favourite aspects in fashion. They capture the fantasy yet classic moments while making it all so contemporary. It’s everything I’m tying to build my personal style around.

Do you keep up with fashion month? Which trend are you most looking forward to for Spring & Summer?
