Masculinity, oversized outerwear, silk and moody, minimal hair and beauty – just a few of the obvious trends on show at NYFW. During the week, there were for me a few stand out collections; the perfection that was Derek Lam, the surprisingly current and ‘street’ DKNY and 3.1 Phillip Lim’s punk biker girls! New York showcased some surprising textures and silhouettes this year that seemed altogether more relaxed yet at the same time more risky than usual. Despite the exaggerated silhouette being taken a bit literally by some; New York seemed edgier than the preppy princess stereotype would have you believe – perhaps they were taking note from London? Whatever it was it worked!
