It is the madness of Fashion month and you can’t open a blog without being bombarded with images from the various fashion weeks. I’m sorry but I’m going to join the pack with my own personal Top 10 of the fashion weeks. So here we go with NYFW:
My 10 of The Best at NYFW ss14
The Show I Would Have Most Liked To Have Attended
For sure it would have to be Opening Ceremony, they made their preview at NYFW in style! Held in an underground carpark the models entered the catwalk in their own Fast and Furious style sports car. Having a guilty pleasure of watching the F&F films coupled with the sheer coolness of the show and the vibrant Korean influenced collection this would have been my show of choice.
As you might be able to guess I like a bit of the theatrical, and I love when designers let their creative juices flow through not just in the clothes but also on creating a scene and atmosphere to show their collection. My favourite from this years NYFW was Marc Jacobs dark, post apocalyptic , playground/ beach. What do you think about fashion show sets, do they add to the clothes or distract?
I’ll have to go for the celebrity/musician option, which will have to go to Rebecca Minkoff for using the insanely stylish Janelle Monae.
Best Front Row
The front row is now as frequently photographed as the actual collection that the front rows are attending, so who had the best front row in my option…Alexander Wang. With the likes of Kanye, Solange, Terry Richardson, Zoe Kravitz and Courtney Love it was a who’s who of rock and roll.
Best Instagram Coverage
The larger than life stylist June Ambrose amused me with her antics with her BFF Mr Jay while providing images of the clothes that she favoured at the shows. Follow June here and also check out #juneandjay for more of the duo’s craziness.
Best Hair and Make-Up
When looking at hair and make-up for Spring/Summer, I consider what I can see us here in the South of France wearing and also how it can be interpreted on different types of hair and skin colours. Donna Karan summed this up for me with her metallic tones, flushed cheeks, focused lips and easy off the face hair.
Handbags are such a big thing and with designers making the most of the shows by taking the opportunity to show us their takes on the next it bag, this was a difficult one. Michael Kors is the accessory king and did not disappoint with his collection of South of France ready oversized straw clutches.
I like these Proenza leather gladiator style heels and flats for wearing in the SoF
Best…Hhhmmm, don’t think that I’ll wear it to my local french market
As much as I love the theatrical and costume shows which I think are the real inspiration of opening your mind to dressing outside the box, practically sometimes they don’t merge very well with everyday life-like these designs by Threeasfour.
Best Most Likely to Wear in the South of France
This was a difficult one with perfect South of France pieces by Micheal Kors and Diane Von Furstenberg, my vote goes to Rebecca Minkoff for my South of France SS14 inspiration.
So that’s my round up of NYFW SS14, next will be London SS14. I would love to hear what your best and worse were and what you think of my round up.
