NYFW FALL/WINTER 2017 Recap

Fashionistas from all around the world flew into the NYC snow on February 9th for Fashion Week, which ended this past Friday. Here are some of our favorite collections and trends to come from the runways.

CALVIN KLEIN FALL/WINTER 2017 BY RAF SIMONS

This Calvin Klein collection marks the debut of Raf Simons as the designer for the brand. Simons manages to keep the classic Klein Americana tropes – dark denim, western shirts, chinos, fitted blazers, wearability, red, white and blue color stories – while bringing the creative edge he's become known for in the fashion world. 

MARC JACOBS FALL/WINTER 2017

We're getting modern-day-Clueless meet cute with 90s hiphop vibes from Marc Jacobs. The combination is equal parts streetwear and Gossip Girl preppy – a combination we'd love to see more of.

ALICE AND OLIVIA FALL 2017

Alice and Olivia's newest collection brings together Italian renaissance, Indian embroidery, and western world modernism in the most romantic color pallet. The result is the wardrobe of a power and strong global jet-setting woman.

PHILOSOPHY PRE-FALL 2017 BY LORENZO SERAFINI

This collection wasn't shown during NYFW, but rather a month earlier, but the #goals were too strong to not include it in this post. Lorenzo Serafini latest creation for Philosophy is a romantic homage to the 1960's – a purposeful decision to revive a more carefree and joyful decade during a current state of political turmoil.
