NYFW Round Up

Wow the world has made it through to the middle of the most chaotic and innovative event in the fashion industry. Lucky for you (who may be worlds away from the main event - like us) we've been scouring Instagram, Twitter, and the Snapchats of our favourite fashion enthusiasts to bring to you the prospective outlook of fashion for the next season. 


Here's what we've found;


1. Youth and quilt work
Bright colours for spring? Ground-breaking! What about if we say quilt work that is one seasonal step out of your winter woolies? Fashion and design house BCBGMAXAZRIA is rolling out the goods this year with their summer/spring 16 collection featuring patchwork bucket hats and pieces of maximum movement and fluidity. Its a more structured bohemian look, if you get our flow. We have heart eyes for the fringe details this year with the tassels appearing on shoes and necklines with the line accentuating all things young, carefree, surf, skate and good times. 

2. Cultural awareness
When activism meets fashion, you know you're a brand to be watched. Debuting their first collection Pyer Moss has set out to respond the the police brutality of the recent, and making #blacklivesmatter bigger and spreading it wider. Absolute commendable. The line incorporates fine lines, classical masculine pieces of a neutral pallet which is another thing we've noticed: the gender blender. All things unisex is appearing more and more- WE LOVE IT.


 
3. 90s necklines

Yep, this century is still very much nostalgic for the good' ole days and NYFW is no exception. This time round we're seeing the all too familiar shaped bodices and thin straps. Victoria Alfaro is a key player paying homage to this classic design and throwing in the reinvented vest for good measure. The lethal combo lends itself for a trendy yet mildly conservative number - GOT VEST ENVY. 

4. Collaborative Prints


Mr Adam Selman the very bubbly embodiment of this brand collaborated this year with graphic designer Miguel Villalobos to bring out some retro prints not unlike your Aunty's table cloths. This look is especially exciting with the abstract shapes and pastel colours. Not only this, Selman shows off his DIY skillz with a lil' converse sneakers cameo. Well, partial cameo, because they are cut up. They are converses but nah, ja feel?
5. Geometric shapes and designs
Lisa Perry has an all to chic line for her summer/spring collection featuring pieces like white blank canvas, artfully dotted with geometric shapes like a 90's music video. Prmitvworld also has the same idea with their graphic shirts and basics making a significant splash in the print department. MosesGauntlettCheng is a threesome power house with these design students straight from education with their debut collection. Look out for Clueless inspiration and well distressed pieces- disclaimer: It won't be hard to miss. 


That our wrap up for the first few days, look out for part 2 soon!

JTONE Launch @ David Jones // Adventures

 David Jones sure knows how to pamper the JTONE girl with a new set of Pjs (complete with kimono), male models serving cocktails, a confectionary servery and... Dumplings! Sister goals when you choose her as your “bestie” plus one to DJs private event (try topping that Michelle).


Champagne already in hand as we ride the elevator up :P


JTONE is DJ’s new exclusive line of all things made to be comfy – undies, sleepwear and workout attire. Running around the house, sleeping and gyming has never looked better. 


 


No FOMO (fear of missing out) for the Vogue Night Out happenings downstairs when we finally rode the elevator up. Well what else do you think when the doors open and you see strobing pink lights, derby gals, a ceiling of pink balloons and the periodic shirtless male strutting through the crowds (second mention was necessary). We kinda felt like Kayture’s Kristina Bazan lost in all the lights and exclusiveness etc (hopefully this isn’t the last :P).


So what’s to see besides pink? OPI nail painting, tattoos and hairdressing to your right, bar straight ahead (as it should be hehe) and candy land on the left. Did I mention a photo backdrop with hanging donuts – what is life?

Next level soft serve toppings: peanut brittle, rocky road, nougat and macarons!



 So the night’s itinerary involved canap├ęs and drinks until Montana Cox and Allison Simpson graced the room for photos and to officially allow everyone to enjoy themselves sum mo’.

 

Now for me to put a “cake in it” or rather a donut because the night was for photos (and snapchat) and who wants to read my banter of the night anyways! Enjoy the montage!
