Have a look to DRY’s pick from New York Fashion Week
Text by: Annarosa Laureti
Fashion Month has already begun and among several and several shows that took place last week in New York City this is what DRY loved most…
There’s no doubt… Tom Ford woman wears the (silk) pants in her family. Self-confident and very chic of course, she shows off pure lines and oversized fits.
For this FW 19/20 Collection – from 90s echoes – the keywords was indeed tailoring. Elegant suits for both women and men are declines into cold and pastel tones except for that two remarkable red and purple looks wore by Mariacarla Boscono and Gigi Hadid.
The turtleneck becomes a sexy item to wear under shirts and jackets, as well as the hoodie. Oversized faux fur coats interchange with sporty puffer jackets while scarfs and hats are the accessories that cannot miss.
The ankle-strap peep-toe platform pumps give a more feminine touch to every single outfits.
Finally, for nightwear Tom Ford has chosen long and glamorous dresses from glossy, but also darker, tones of silver, cold pink and black.
For this FW 19/20 the American designer brings fake news to the catwalk. Completely declined in black and white tones, the collection shows off newspaper’s patterns on every single piece: from trench coats to mini party dresses, from tops and sweaters to voluminous tulle skirts.
Working with the artist Aleksandra Mir, Jeremy Scott launched an attack not to the media world but to that idiot mania to believe in everything we read on the Net.
To best represent the Web’s aggressiveness and faux outrage, the designer put on clothes very triggering words such as scandal, killer, danger and chaos.
Despite the monochrome color palette, the collections presents a scale of several details: fringes are applied on jeans like scraps of paper, sequins are added on dresses and patches are attached on coats in different techniques.
A star is born… that of Tomo Koizumi was surely one of the buzziest event. Maybe because the little known Japanese designer has took New York Fashion Week yet at his first debut, creating an incredible show not only joined by top models – such as Bella Hadid, Taylor Hill, Joan Small and Emily Ratajkowski, just to name a few – but also by the fashion Gotha itself.
A color explosion of pastel, and florescent as well, tones invades the basement of Marc Jacobs’s store letting the guests live in a truly fairy tale for a while: the voluminous and geometrical dresses made with polyester organza left everyone astonished.
Complex and very different are the designer’s inspirations and references: from the cartoon world of the heroine Sailor Moon to the hanawa, a Japanese funerary banner with plastic floral designs, from the style of the Italian designer Capucci to the Australian performer Leigh Bowery.
Finally the name behind this incredible success is that of Katie Grand: she discovered the Japanese designer on Instagram and, once fall in love with his crazy creation, she decided to give him the possibility to show in New York.
The design duo of Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta continues to dazzle us. Their brand always focused on sustainability, shown off a gender fluid collection from architectural shapes.
The color palette includes earth shades of orange and brown as well as cold and darken tones.
Beads details enriched tops and huge belt wore over sweaters while shoes were made in partnerships with UGG brand.
Finally color-blocked knits ends a very inclusive show of a brand that tries little by little to move from the streetscape to a more luxurious world.
