Kate Spade New York brought change to the catwalk
For the first time ever invited actresses, influencers and models – across a range of body types and ages – to walk the show and unveil the Spring 2020 collection. For her fifth collection as creative director, Nicola Glass was inspired by a city safari, translating into timeless travel-inspired silhouettes in ultra-feminine fabrics, prints and colours (main image).
DKNY turned 30 in style
What better time than New York Fashion Week to celebrate your 30th birthday? The guest list was as extra as you’d expect, with Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse, Kendall Jenner and Ashley Benson joining Donna Karan herself to party the night away to a set by the Martinez Brothers. Campaign star Halsey also performed.
Zendaya and Tommy Hilfiger proved the 70s are still the coolest style decade
The second collaboration between the actor and the designer remained inspired by the 70s, and what a good thing it was. There were a lot of tailored pieces and feminine shapes, in luxe fabrics such as vinyl, velour and silks. Statement pieces included pussy bow blouses and snake print suits. Gorgeous.
Longchamp brought two decades and cultures together
Like last season, Longchamp showed in New York and as such incorporating a bit of US culture into its French DNA. Creative director Sophie Delafontaine married two different decades for her collection, mixing the maximalism and feminism of the 70s with the minimalism and sportiness of the 90s. The result was colourful, paired back and oh so chic.
