September to the fashionista is what January is to most of the rest of the world, a fresh start full of new possibilities, and this commences with the start of the Spring Summer fashion shows. New York kicks of the fashion calendar’s favorite season and the latest event has just come to a close. We saw many highlights from Kim & Kanye’s £6.5 million non-disclosure clause for their models to Tennis superstar Serena Williams’ debut collection. The LuxPad takes a closer look at the stand out catwalk trends that we expect to be mirrored across interiors next season…
Holding on to the coattails of A/W 70s vibe the SS shows were awash with fringing. Showcased at Serena Williams debut show, the long and short tassels were seen as the perfect accompaniment to clothes and accessories ranging from classic black to brightly patterned pieces. The shredded finishes have been seen at Givenchy, Ralph Lauran and Vera Wang, amongst others. For the home look to soft furnishings with fringed edges, from throws to cushions across brands such as Desigual and Sluiz Ibiza.
Things are hotting up for next SS with the influx of fiery tones, especially orange. Perfect for the Spring Summer vibe, the warming hues of orange were seen in bold pops at Marissa Webb and Ohne Titel, with lace and straight lines also factoring within these shows. Prabal Gurung opted for lots of two tone orange looks and fluid lines and shapes. Look to classic Orla Kiely pieces for the home, where she uses lots of burnt tones in her retro designs from furniture to decorative accessories. Try Roberto Cavalli’s latest home collections for glamorous soft furnishings in this spicy shade.
Stripes are back and no fuss classic styles are the order of the day. Alexander Wang incorporated stripes and classic blue hues into his show, and this classic pattern was also seen across models at Ralph Lauren. Reinvent the stripe at home by reverting back to classic palettes for a refresh. Gant have a wide range of bed linen and soft furnishing that match the stripes and maritime palette as demonstrated by Wang.
So we’ve all dreamt about wearing our pyjamas to work (haven’t we?!), well now this could become a reality thanks to the influx of pyjama and bathrobe-esque styles seen on the SS16 catwalks. From silky pyjamas to bathrobe styled dresses the shows were awash with loungewear on a luxury scale. Givenchy incorporated silk robes to match their emphasis on the slip dress –another favoured style championed at this weeks’ shows. At home maximise the guilt-free stylings of this trend and invest in luxury loungewear from all your favourite brands from Desigual to Roberto Cavalli.
From what the celebrities on the FROW were wearing to the models on the catwalks, bright shades of white were seen everywhere at NYFW. The street style snaps from locations around the city showed a plethora of fashionistas all turning up in stylish white shaded attires. And inside the shows Victoria Beckham showcased lots of all white designs in crisp clean fabrics. Calvin Klein and Hugo Boss have a great selection of crisp white bed linen to choose from, perfect for adding the chic timeless style of white to your interior.
Keeping with the 70s stylings that seem to be here to stay tie-dye also made a comeback on the runways. Bright bold colors and flowing shapes came together to demonstrate a decidedly boho vibe. Bring a beachy edge to next season the tie-dye designs were seen across Maz Azria, Raquel Allegra and Dennis Brasso.
