Top 10 fashion moments of #NYFW

New York Fashion Week delivered eight days of back-to-back shows underscored by talks of welcomed industry change, including diversity on the runways, new social media strategies, and the influx of street influences. Here are ten top moments selected by NOWFASHION:

 

DKNY

Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osbourne took a playful stab at resurfacing logomania, using the finale of the show to parade graphic sweatshirts mimicking acrostic variations of the DKNY letters: think “Designers Don’t Know Yet,” “Dazed Kids New York,” and “Don’t Knock New York.” It was a clever strategy that filled everyone’s social media feed on Wednesday afternoon.

On the coldest night of the year (try -13 Celsius), Moncler transformed the outside plaza of the Lincoln Center into some kind of military-esque base for an army of blue-dressed marchers. The performance and carefully choreographed formations were mesmerizing but would’ve been more enjoyable had we not lost all feeling in our fingers.

ALEXANDER WANG

In line with Wang’s overtly rebellious message this season — along with his effort in defying standard definitions of beauty — he transformed 18-year-old Katherine Moore’s long blonde locks to match the ruggedness of the show. The dramatic transformation resulted in a bright red cropped style with super short fringe.

TOMMY HILFIGER

The folks at Tommy Hilfiger, who are constantly embracing and engaging with digital technology, used their fall 2016 show to launch Snapchat. Tapped as the brand's global ambassador, social supermodel Gigi Hadid broadcasted a bunch of inside scoops from rehearsals to backstage sneak peeks.

YEEZY

It wouldn’t be a round-up of the best moments if the Yeezy performance-cum-presentation wasn’t included. While the event was full of bizarrely odd highlights, the top takeaway was probably that his new album, “The Life of Pablo,” is actually pretty decent, and that perhaps monetizing fashion week and opening it up to the public isn’t such a bad idea after all.

DVF

The meaning of #squadgoals reached new heights on Sunday, as Diane Von Furstenberg opted for an unorthodox and somewhat interactive presentation featuring top models such as Kendall Jenner, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Aldrige, Karlie Kloss, and Gigi Hadid dancing around her store on 14th street like it was some kind of disco party. That was indeed the point, along with the theme for DVF’s Fall ’16 range, which was injected with the right amount of nostalgia from sexy slip dresses in her signature prints.

MARC JACOBS

With diversity a big message this NYFW, you could say that it’s fairly diverse to include a singing millionaire among an expected cast of seasonal models. As was such at Marc Jacobs last night, who sent the one and only Lady Gaga down the runway in towering platforms, an oversized coat, and a pussy bow blouse. The show was a grand close to such an eclectic week, fusing dark gothic circus vibes with a 40s-inspired costume sensibility. A much needed injection of creativity among a fairly commercial week of fashion.

DELPOZO

Creative Director Josep Font never fails to deliver a touch of magic at Delpozo, and fall was no exception. The seamless fusion of art and architecture was accentuated through sculptural silhouettes and decorative paillettes, creating armor-like embellishments indicative of Font’s inspiration for the season around the sci-fi film Metropolis. The color palette was boldly refreshing, incorporating unexpected accents of primary yellow, deep wine, and royal purple.

RODARTE

Celebrating their 10th anniversary, sister and design duo Kate and Laura Mulleavy presented a very different type of show that generally isn’t witnessed during New York Fashion Week. With a nod to art nouveau and Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather, their fall ‘16 collection was the ultimate lesson in craftsmanship. Delicate and intricate embroidery, geometric fabric splicing, angular lace ruffles — every look epitomized the definition of texture. The dark undertones and stern color palette were contrasted with romantic sheers and botanical accessories such as fresh flowers as statement earrings and hair jewels.

It’s likely that Stuart Vevers is to Coach, as Hedi Slimane was to Saint Laurent. Presenting an Americana-inspired collection of melancholic favorites, Vevers is turning the luxury brand — once known predominantly for their handbags — into a ready-to-wear favorite among the millennial girl. Collegiate jackets were emblazoned with playful patches, while coordinating skirt sets were updated with shearling insets and press stud detailing.
