With New York Fashion Week coming to a close today, let’s take a look back at some of the collections that came to the runway this week.
Saturday night, Christian Siriano debuted sixty-seven new pieces in a collection aptly titled “Victorian Matrix.” Blues, blacks, and plenty of shimmering designs were on display. Siriano even created a piece for Instagram-famous Italian Greyhound @tikatheiggy! Model and TikTok sensation Coco Rocha closed the show wearing a hooded gray ensemble.
On Sunday morning, the runway saw a collection from Dennis Basso.
Basso said that the inspiration for this 2022 collection is “New York Moments,” and it featured a number of different furs, bright pink outerwear, and several off-the-shoulder gowns in every color from black to turquoise to florals. Basso says, “Fashion has always been very important to the people that love clothes, but more than making you look good, it is so important that clothes make you feel good.”
When asked about this season’s collection, designer Laurin Cabralissa says, “Especially as of late, people need something to lift them up emotionally and spiritually. Our clothes make people shine on the inside and outside. Life is too short to wear ugly clothes.”
Tory Burch’s ready-to-wear collection debuted Monday night twenty-five stories above the city at Hudson Commons.
On Instagram, Burch described her inspiration for the collection as “the uniquely expressive style of women on the streets of New York.” The collection featured vibrant, color-block dresses, new bags, and unique shoes.
On Valentine’s day, Coach and Stuart Vevers showed off a nostalgic collection designed to revisit some of Coach’s most-loved ideas. Upcycled leather, shearling coats, flannel, and crochet dresses all played a large role in bringing the idea to life. The show took place at Pier 36 and featured a minimalist, warm-toned, suburban set.
Tuesday saw a striking monochrome collection by Michael Kors accented by a performance by Miguel. Beginning with tan ensembles–outerwear, belts, bags, skirts, and pants–the show eventually ended with the antithesis: a glittering black gown worn by Gigi Hadid.
Not even human, LG AI personality Tilda created a collection for Fashion Week with designer YounHee Park. Using patterns designed by Tilda, Park launched this collection, the first of its kind, this week with intense outerwear and knit-wear.
