Highlights from New York Fashion Week AW15

 New York Fashion Week has closed on Thursday and as always the city that never sleeps provided lots of groove and exciting moments. Turtlenecks, wide leg pants and feathers were some of the most seen trends on the catwalks. Alexander Wang showcased an edgy and almost all black collection inspired in heavy metal. Dashing clothes with a lot of attitude. Emphasis on the sheer chain mail dresses. The platform creepers accentuated the edginess of the collection. The black top and long skirt with chain fringe at the hem featured on Kendall Jenner was absolutely stunning.  Altuzarra presented a sophisticated and seductive collection with his signature thigh-high slits. This time the designer included pantsuits in 70s silhouettes and Prince of Wales check in beautiful and tailored coats and pants. Lots of fur in collars and coats elevated the sumptuousness of the collection. Thigh-high and knee-length boots and leather bags in saddle shapes complemented divinely the looks. The velvet devoré dresses were truly dazzling. Victoria Beckham showed a refined collection with a subtle sexiness. Knits, cut-out dresses, structured coats and midi skirts were the main pieces in a color palette dominated by black, white and navy. Beautiful, modern and chic tailoring. A collection that definitely reflects the designer’s own wardrobe. Tommy Hilfiger to celebrate the brand’s 30th anniversary presented an amazing show inspired in American football and in the movie Love Story.  It was a mix of Jenny Cavallery heroine (Ali Macgraw’s character in Love Story) with 21st century cheerleaders.  Bouclé plaid, fur, leather and satin were the main fabrics in collegiate and sporty silhouettes. Details like stripes and pins accentuated the sportiness of the collection. The football lace-up boots will certainly become a hit. Michael Kors showed an effortless elegant collection. Luxurious fabrics like fur, cashmere and tweed in great and simple tailored pieces.  Amazing outerwear such as the check and camel coats, beautiful knits and midi skirts dominated the range. Many looks were accessorized with muffs, stoles and collars made of fur which gave a lavish touch. Beautiful and wearable clothes that will be on the wish list of many women. Marc by Marc Jacobs presented a strong and rebellious collection with a military mood. Long combat-style skirts, moto jackets and skinny trousers worn like uniforms dominated the collection.   The range had a very Union Jack color palette like blue and red. The William Morris prints (known for his floral and quirky prints), tartan and black PVC added friskiness to the collection. The berets are sure to become an it piece.  This edition of New York Fashion Week was one of the most attended by celebrities. To brave the freezing cold, coats were the favorite garment amongst the fashion pack.
