STYLE REPORT: New York Fashion Week 2017

The recently wrapped up New York Fashion Week Fall 2017 highlighted what America is currently going through. The change of government administration was clearly incorporated with the collections of most celebrated fashion houses, and new generation of young designers.

From variety of races and sizes of models gracing runways (Gypsy Sport, Michael Kors), expression of various political statements (Prabal Gurang, Public School), and fashion houses incorporating cultures (Marc Jacob’s take on Hip Hop)and moving on to international market (Proenza Schouler’s move to Paris), America is still the land of opportunities, immigrants and philosophies.

And from there, the Art we call Fashion can still be expressed with the key trends from various collections.

So here are our favourite picks:

Naturally Neutral

A great way to approach this year’s fall season is appreciating the natural vibe it gives by wearing neutrals. Doesn’t mean you have to look bland though. Take a cue from these naturally beautiful pieces!

Shine bright!

If you rather take the cheerful road, opt to incorporate an enhanced colour of a neutral shade and go for a muted or bold yellow gold. Either way this will add life to the fall season later this year. Be inspired!
