Our favorite runway and street style moments from New York Fashion Week ss2019

Now that you’ve freed up space in your closet for the hottest trends from New York fashion week, it’s time to take a look on how it’s done on the runway. Here’s a glimpse of some of our favorite events and stylish personas that rocked the NY fashion week. Starting with the euphoric designers whom just made it back from Paris fashion week with their collections to concur the runways of NYC, the pinkish breakfasts and the hot cruise cocktail parties, the handmade straws covering the large pillars sprinkled all over the space and the room with green plants that gave a garden-like party vibe. These and many other reasons made us fall in love all over again in only six days.

Every season there are grand big shows and events, but this year the atmosphere felt more intimate with live music, good food, drinks and models walking around. The brands tried to interact with the crowd through their choice of location, music and the general vibe, giving the audience a taste of the seasonal spirit of the collections and a full-on experience they won’t forget.

Let’s get started, scroll down and see our peeks

SELF-PORTRAIT

Their stand out floral dresses are a must for springtime!. Han Chong reassured us that the feminine dress is what we are going to need in his SS19 collection.

Chong opened the show with a white ruffled, asymmetrical dress and more colors, textured Macrame, laces, embroideries, mixed prints of vibrant geometrical and floral elements and a playful romantic collection unraveled as the show continued.

Nanushka

This brand is based in Budapest. It started making an appearance only the past few years and this was their second time presenting their SS/19 collection in New York Fashion Week. The location was just on point; a loft designed in the spirit of the brand with elements inspired by ancient Egypt (rugs, Sculptures and vases) meshed with the NY scenery and Nanushka’s distinctive color palette. Besides the impressive space they’ve created, the presentation included live music, drinks and of course, clothes.

The inspiration for the collection was Ancient Egypt and the “Refined Rodeo”, a good take on east-made-west. We were able to point out Egyptian symbols in the collection such as embroidery of the ‘Eye of Horus’, massive golden jewelry and the ‘Shenti’ silhouette (a type of loincloth which was worn around the waist) combined with Western-style denim and leather jackets, the accessories chosen and ‘Teva’ sandals which added a unique freshness to the looks. Another thing that we couldn’t ignore was the color palette; the sandy neutrals colors, ice blues with popping pinks and oranges created such a different and pleasant vibe to the collection.

Maryam Nassir Zadeh

If you are in a need for genius styling ideas, this show is where you should be looking! This collection presented new ways to wear a swimwear top as a part of a casual look. The designer is a beach soul and you can absolutely tell where her inspiration for this collection came from.  She managed to level-up the good old bike shorts; these have been trendy for a while now but this show proved that a great styling work can elevate them so much by pairing them with a sassy swimwear bra and a loosely opened shirt over the top, a ruffled blazer, a knitted top with a chunky belt or a swimwear top with a rounded belt tied around the waistline and the shoulders.

The next time you want to step-up your look, take a closer look at the fine details in this collection because they’re precious.

Zimmermann

The inspiration for the spring-summer 2019 collection came from an Australian soap opera from the 70’s.

For spring summer 2019 Zimmerman continued with the distinguishing marks that are so identified with the boho-cool girl style she’s known for with the use of ruffles, voluminous sleeves and deep V-necklines that contribute to the Western vibe she’s trying to deliver with the silky patchwork blouses in Paisley print, the edgy Safari suits and fresh, sporty elements shown throughout the collection.

We can also see the collection on the street style front row girls, who make us want to wear those statement desirable clothes.

Proenza Schouler

Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez are back in New York after dropping few shows in Paris.

Most of this collection is made of denim and cotton, with the addition embellishments and innovative leatherwork on unique leather pieces such as the remarkable baggy leather boots.

The outfits that shook the runway were the more wearable ones. These included essential key items such easy dresses, structured blazers, trench coats worn with a statement belt and the marble dyed shirts. Usually we see a lot more prints in their collections with a lot more color and textures, but that wasn’t the case in this season. They went for simple daily items that can directly make it to our wardrobes without further modifications.

Lela Rose

This showcase wasn’t regular. This was a cocktail afternoon event in a bar on a cruise. The guests were enjoying their drinks and seafood while the collection was being presented.

The elegant atmosphere complemented the vibe of the clothes and Gingham head-kerchiefs too well.

What we like about those feminine chic dresses is the fact that they can be worn to a fancy event or to a casual day at work. The stripes, flowers, trench coat dresses and vibrant colors make them versatile and timeless. This collection shows that you can pull off romantic, graceful garments and look nothing but usual.

Jonathan Simkhai

This season Jonathan Simkhai decided to create a more intimate event and a different concept. The models were walking around in a room covered in green plants, showing the collection to the crowd as if they were in a garden party. Simkhai used a variety of techniques in creating beautiful feminine dresses by layering thin and soft fabrics. He combined embroidery with crochet, cotton and silk chiffon and was able to create the sensation of a dreamy dress.

For those of you whom are getting married soon, here is your answer for a contemporary urban wedding dress and even some ideas for your the outfits of your guests.

Tibi

Tibi’s collection was all about easy, ready to wear urban outfits. The items could fit every city girl whom appreciates chicness without compromising comfort. A good example are the oversized suits, wrap dresses, leather skirts and the color blocked matching shirts and pants. Furthermore, the soft degradation of the color palette which started in a black and faded into soft pastel yellows, pinks, green and so as the show went on.

The footwear chosen also spoke the language of comfort. First the leather flip-flops which made a surprisingly great match for the oversized suits, as well as, the mules, booties and warp sandals that were matched perfectly with the clean aesthetics of the collection.

Ulla Johnson

Ulla Johnson presented her SS 2019 collection at the Williamsburg Savings Bank. The hall was designed in the cultural spirit of the brand by adding her own decorative spin on the large pillars in the space, covering each pillar with straw waste recycled from plastic bags, whilst Serpentwithfeet performed live and completed the atmosphere.

Every season Johnson excites us with new handcrafting techniques and takes us on a cultural journey through her work and creations. We are able to identify Victorian silhouettes, African bead aprons and handmade floral embroidery made in India, alongside, feminine silhouettes, material manipulations, print combinations and other elements, all of which she manages to fit into one garment. The result is a collection that still looks cohesive, aesthetic and pleasant.

Mansur Gavriel

For Fall 2018 collection, Mansur Gavriel collaborated with the Parisian patisserie experts from Ladurée and they both created a brilliantly pinkish breakfast that was served around rounded tables to the guests during their see-now-buy-now fall collection that was presented during the event.

The polished collection was well-executed and the choice of high-quality materials such as cashmere, camel hair, wool, silk and shearling left a good impression, in addition to the delicate silver shoes and sparkly items that gave the collection that extra oomph.

Bevza

Another collection that made us want to hop on a plane with the entire collection in our bag was this one. The fabrics looked so light and flowy on the body, the knitted dresses made of white sheer, the silky opened back dresses, the soft pastel and black colors of the collection are every woman’s dream. Besides that, the little shell details and the accessories are just perfect in their minimalist nature.
