If you’re like us and live for the moment the tall, slender, and Slavic ladies and gentlemen hit the runway, then this article is a must-read. Our insiders have been on the ground at New York Fashion Week 2015 and we’ve got the scoop on everything you’ll be wearing, buying, and styling this year.
If you were watching NYC Fashion Week last season, you’ll know that designer Charles Youseff was quickly named ‘the one to watch’ after debuting his collection. This season, Youseff brought out a chic collection of easy-to-wear garments with an architectural influence. Think chic, structured zig-zags with a quirky, sexy twist. We’ve got our eyes firmly fixed on this guy.
Hair-wise, it’s all about being comfortable with what you’ve got and showing off those gorgeous tresses. Dale Delaporte and the Prema team (who have salons in New York as well as at home in Surry Hills and Bondi Junction) were behind the stylish blow dries at Charles Youseff’s showings. According to the team, the look is easy to achieve: ‘Take sections in left-over hair and softly use your curling tongs. Instead of curling up each section into your tong, alternate your direction throughout, and stretch that wave out with the heat. The point of the look is that is has a disturbed base structure to keep it fresh’.
Bell Of The Ball
Yep, you heard us—the bell-bottom trouser is back and ready to change your mind about your dedication to the skinny jean. Fear not, it took us a while to come around to the wide-legged culotte, so we’re sure you’ll be loving the flared trouser in no time. Pastel-coloured ‘baby’ bell-bottoms were spotted on the runway from Coach, while Hellessy debuted a leather pair that we’re lusting over.
This is one trend that has had massive growth over the past few seasons—the fringe. The beauty of the fringe is in its versatility: you can wear as much or as little as you like. Whether it’s a subtle fringe on your crop top, or a complete 1920s flapper-girl look, the fringe frenzy is a trend we’re really getting on board with.
Coloured suede dresses were showing up all over the runways at NYC Fashion Week this year, but probably not in the way you expect. This NYC Fashion Week trend is making use of those feminine springtime pastel shades we love, and has us whipping out our credit cards faster than a model’s metabolism.
We could not be more excited to inform everyone that the ultra sexy and always fun bright lip is here to stay. We saw a lot of rich and juicy berry colours slicked on lips during NYC Fashion Week and it made us both hungry and keen to get our hands on a tube (or seven).
