Earlier this New York Fashion Week Tommy Hilfiger made sure his Tommy Pier and the consumer’s ability to shop his catwalk clothes right away was trending. Today the other all American designer brand stepped into the same see-now-buy-now territory. A completely new move for the preppy brand that shut down the block on Madison Avenue and had both Julianne Moore and Jessica Alba witness the spectacle. Yet as modern as this decisions was, as classic appeared the Ralph Lauren collection. Buffalo checked shirts and heavy leather jackets, Navajo printed pieces and long fringed dresses topped off with cowboy hats. The fresh faces of catwalk stunners like Bella and Kendall seemed to be the only key to tell this was actually a 2017 collection. And why wouldn’t the designer stick to his winning formula? He divided his show into Western and Art Deco parts. And to make sure his show would be one to remember Ralph Lauren sent out a vibrant finale filled with satin and sequined dresses in bright colors. Not all the most desirable unique and contemporary pieces you’d want to get your hands on straight away. But the real RL-fans can eat there heart out tomorrow morning when the designs hit the stores.

Although the whole world seems to talk about just one thing (Bella taking a tumble) Michael Kors actually had an extremely wearable collection to present this week. A perfectly balanced s/s collection with all the right ingredients. Formal shirts, belted cocktail dresses, a floral printed bikini, perfect tailored classical trenchcoats, LOVE sweaters (that immediately went on sale), a crispy white tuxedo, pleated midi skirts and a number of floral printed evening dresses with a powerful attitude followed each other up on the runway. In a palette ranging from bright pink and vivid Kermit green to navy and sand hues. Holiday vibes to bring back to the city. Nothing jaw dropping or eyebrow raising, just a beautifully tailored upbeat selection of easy to wear designs. An uplifting fashion message in a time where the world is upside down and undoubtedly a success collection for a designer like Kors, who seems to be appealing to a bigger (mass) crowd every season. Consumers who are not just looking for an affordable designer bag or smart watch, but want the complete package. And if it’s up to mister Kors they can dress up in his brand, from head to toe, all days of the season.

Clicking through the Delpozo S/S2017 show images it’s hard contain your excitement. Again, Josep Font, delivered a fairytale like collection leaving us completely mesmerized. His fresh faced models and crispy white mesh backdrop were the perfect match to his lighthearted, luminous definite spring collection. A collection filled with dreamy dresses, sugar sweet coats, wrap tops and tulle skirts. Evert single look as picture perfect as the one before. We can not even begin to sum up the diversity of the architectural looks, let alone the amount of handcrafted hours that went into this ultra delicate collection. Ruffles, pleats, bows and embroidered floral appliques turned every ensemble into a show stopper. And then there were those hypnotizing larger than life earrings, which despite their size, appeared highly desirable. Font’s image for spring/summer is positive and optimistic, both feminine and girly, original and fresh. We’re obsessed.

Rodarte Catwalk Fashion Show New York SS2017

Laura and Kate Mulleavy grew a lot of sunflowers over the summer. Sunflowers that attracted a lot of bees, which ultimately led to their bee-inspired summer collection. Looking at the clothes from a distance you’d probably just see a bunch of delicate and beautiful dresses, but taking a closer look you could see the bee inspired details. Like the honeycomb-ish layering on a piece of tulle, a beehive bodice decoration and lots of floral embroideries. Details on a selection of feminine and delicate cocktail and evening dresses with a focus on the shoulders. An abundance of jewelry (including large earpieces worn in just one ear) added extra grace. But it wasn’t all dreamy and sweet. The designer sisters added some tough touches too, in the shape of leather belts and boots. The last look: a floor sweeping wedding gown for the bride to bee. Then it was time for sparkling rose drinks and rooftop dances at the Jane.

Coach Catwalk Fashion Show New York SS2017

A line up of rusted cars awaited us at Coach 1941. A sign we were in for some tough love. Inspired by beatniks, rebels, and all-American dreamers designer Stuart Vevers came up with a extraordinary ranch of richly styled looks. Sheer floral dresses and studded leather jackets formed the collection’s main image. A mix of femininity and toughness given a dozen interpretations in the form of prints, decorations and accessories. Elvis Presley could be seen printed on a series of tees. Black leather jackets read ‘bobcat rebel’ on the back. Other jackets had multiple pockets, metal studs and fringes. Dresses were given extra layers of lace and leather straps. Choker necklaces, fingerless gloves, scarves tied around the models wrists and small chain bags added an extra dose of rebel attitude. And then there were the lug soled creepers full of studs and spikes. Best not mess around with the Coach girl next season.

Sies Marjan Catwalk Fashion Show New York SS2017

He received raving reviews on his debut collection, but a designer is only as good as his latest collection. So in order to prove he is not an one day fly Sander Lak had to wow us again with his second collection. And the upcoming Dutch designer (who formerly worked at Dries van Noten, Balmain and Philip Lim) made sure he delivered. In an utmost optimistic palette of baby blues, tangerine, khaki and neon lime (“The color palette dictated what this whole collection looks like,” Lak said backstage) he sent out his range of fresh, easy going, grunge inspired creations. Liquid dresses, bias cut pants, pleated skirts and T-shirt tops in shiny satin, patent leather, fluffy furs and easy knitwear made up for a surprising contemporary collection. The audience seemed to love every bit of it. Now let’s see if today’s customer is up for some Sies Marjan style when Sander Lak’s first (fall/winter) collection hits the stores.

DKNY Catwalk Fashion Show New York SS2017

The hoodie is having a big moment in fashion this season. And if it’s up to DKNY designer Osborne and Chow that trend is to stay around a little longer. For spring/summer the designer duo introduced a sportive ready to wear range full of activewear. Their model pack, lead by Bella Hadid, looked extremely tough in next season’s boiler suits, slouchy hoodies, DKNY branded sport bras and sheer jackets. Done in a palette of khaki, taupe and navy the items looked suitable for hitting the concrete jungle, NYC, where the all American brand, that was sold to a new company in order to start making profit again, has it roots. We’re not sure if the original DKNY costumer is up for this kind of streetwise fashion. Yet this youthful range will definitely appeal to a fresh young customer. And that might just be the key to the brand’s revival. At least Donna Karan, who sat front row at the show (with a broken foot) was all smiles.

Proenza Schouler Catwalk Fashion Show New York SS2017

Vibrant and quirky, that’s probably the best way to describe Proenza Schouler’s summer collection for next year. Designers McCollough and Hernandez brought color back into their energetic line-up. Using a bunch of new handcrafting techniques they picked up from their recent visit to Paris the duo presented a youthful serie of voluminous, asymmetric skirts and dresses. Fashion pieces with graphic prints, peepholes, pleats and lots of layering. Materials were a mix of knitwear, faux fur, woven leather and ostrich feathers glued into long strips of fabric. Funky platform shoes, handbags and oversize conceptual earrings topped of the looks that appeared almost 3D. Oh and did you see the white and yellow ear make-up? Boxy tees added an extra dose of urban coolness and wearability to the very conceptual but fun spring/summer collection.
