With bloggers sitting front row at every show, and the plethora of social media platforms, I sometimes feel like I see one show 800 times. Like why would I spend my time looking at the Michael Kors show when it was just literally everyone and their mother’s Instagram story???
If you don’t have @kylizzlemynizzl on snapchat then you need to add her now because she has the most entertaining snapchat account ever. AND you’d know that today Kylie’s online store went live and her clothing line is now available for purchase. Kylie is two months younger than me.. and has built an empire for herself at the age of 19.
From bare stomachs to oversized puffer coats, the street style of NYFW 2017 has been all over the place thus far. While some fashionistas are choosing to ignore the icy NYC conditions, others are embracing the cold and bundling up in their winter’s finest. A few notable trends have been emerging from the street style thus far, and I’ll be interested to see what the rest of this week has in store.
H&M is at it again with their yearly designer collaboration. This year the popular retail store has teamed with Parisian fashion house Kenzo. The collection will be launched in H&M stores next month, but they’ve just released the highly anticipated line for everyone to do a little browsing before taking on the crazy shoppers.
Say hello to senior Theresa Ancira. Well, not her exactly, but her drop dead gorgeous bag and the must-have essentials in it. From her fuchsia leather Gucci card case to her Kylie matte liquid lipstick, Theresa’s bag is nothing short of fabulous. What other essentials does her Polka Dot Chanel bag carry? See for yourself, and take a note or two.
Paris Fashion Week brought it home last week, leaving us all inspired and wishing it was Spring 2017 already. But let’s start wearing this ish now! More and more designers are jumping on the “see now buy now” trend and eschewing the fact that these clothes were made for next year. They also realize that whatever they make will show up in Zara in 2 weeks. Therefore, it is really in their best interest to design transitional clothes and get them into their stores lickity split.
Gone are the days when Snapchat was exclusively used to send ugly selfies to your BFFs. Snapchat officially dominated the social media arena at Fashion Month this season, after its steady rise to the top over the last year. Instagram has long been the preferred social media platform for the fashion set, likely due to its “artsy” nature, but in New York, London, Milan, and now Paris, Snapchat reigns supreme.
Before everyone begins analyzing London Fashion Week (then Paris…then Milan…) we thought we should go through NYFW with a fine-tooth comb. At our meeting this past weekend, we discussed our favorite shows and each member picked their end-all-be-all favorite look.
I was thankful that we we continued to move further and further from the “normcore” and “sporty” trends of seasons past, and continued with the “more is more” mantra of last season: voluptuous silhouettes, sequins on sequins, dresses over pants, textures galore…the list goes on. Aside from the irritating abundance of off-the-shoulder tops, designers seemed to beat to their own drum. This is how fashion week should be–and is evident in our picks below.
