Fashion Month Round Up: Runway Looks

Monday, March 14, 2016

UPDATE: I apologize for not posting for the past couple of weeks! I originally wanted to take a break but was going to prepare some posts but my school assignments needed a lot more time put into them than I expected! I have quite a few things coming up and some collaborations so stay tuned :)

Fashion month is officially over and I'm not going to lie, it exhausted me and I wasn't even there. There's so many shows going on and everything goes by so fast that the past month just flew by for me. Instead of what I did last season for fashion week (here are my posts: NYFW and LFW), I decided to compile one huge round up of my favourite runway looks for each of the main fashion weeks (New York, London, Milan and Paris). There's so many other fashion weeks coming up/going on (*cough* Toronto *cough*) that I'll definitely touch upon (wink wink nudge nudge) but I wanted to focus more so on the ones that make up "fashion month".

I finally got some time to look through brands I've never heard of before and fell in love with their fall/winter collection! I tend to love runway looks that I can easily translate into my everyday wardrobe (unless you're Iris Van Herpen because I love how she implements 3D printing into her designs).

Let's go in order of how it all went down,

See by Chloe

  • I can't believe I didn't know this brand by Chloe existed. I LOVE Chloe, mainly for their handbags but See's Ready-to-Wear AW16-17 collection is absolutely stunning. I love pretty much every look but these were definitely my favourites that I can see myself wearing when fall comes around! I'm going to try incorporating their looks for spring and summer though because I can't wait.

    J. Crew

  • I'm not one for pattern mixing. I think it looks incredible on people but I have yet to try this trend out. J. Crew's collection has definitely made me want to get out of my comfort zone and try this out.
  • Alice + Olivia

  • I saw parts of this collection though Ingrid Nilsen's Snapchat and fell in love with it instantly. I was so happy once the HQ photos were posted because these looks are incredible in every single way. I own a bow tie collar as well but haven't worn it too much but this collection has inspired me to wear it more often!

    Whistles

  • For the first look, I really love the burgundy and mustard colour combination. It's not something I would instantly think of but it has such a total fall-vibe to it! The second look I love from Whistles is more of a Pantone's rose-quartz colour that I'm glad was incorporated in a fall/winter collection even though it's typically a spring/summer colour.
  • Bally

  • This is another brand I've never heard of and I'm so glad I found it while I was on Vogue! Brighter colours for fall isn't something we normally see in collections so when I saw the pink pants in this collection, I immediately knew I was going to try and wear more colour for my fall outfits. I don't think you HAVE to wear dark colours during the fall and winter but most of my outfits have a darker palette!
  • Iris Van Herpen

  • I think if there was ever a fashion documentary I would LOVE to see made or the opportunity to see the process of a collection being made, it'd 100% be Iris Van Herpen. There's so many other designers that I love like Elie Saab and Giambattista Valli but Van Herpen's designs are intricate in a different way. She uses 3D printing for her designs which enable her to make precise designs. The results when fashion and technology integrate are truly fascinating. It makes me really excited for the Met Gala since the theme is Fashion in the Age of Technology.
  • Longchamp

  • I think by looking at these photos you can tell that I love the v-shape design. In a lot of the collections during fashion month, designers introduced more colour in fall/winter. I particularly like the bold colours and simple geometric forms Longchamp's collection uses.
  • Elie Saab

  • Not going to lie, when I FIRST saw glimpses of the show, I wasn't too pleased. It was a different approach than what I was used to from an Elie Saab show. After looking through the entire collection, I found pieces I genuinely love. Although I expected to see more elegant and less "rocker-vibe" looks, I am still pleasantly surprised I enjoyed more edgier looks (which is not something I gravitate towards normally)

    1. Adrienne, you picked the perfect collections to showcase! Love all these looks. My favorites are Chloe, Bally, Iris van Herpen, and of course Elie Saab. My favorite overall designers are Ralph & Russo and Georges Hobeika, but Marchesa's collections have been INCREDIBLE these past few seasons!

      1. That means so much to me Savannah! I hoped other people would enjoy the fall collections I personally love and have gotten inspiration from. I agree with Marchesa's collections - they're absolutely fabulous. I haven't heard of the other two but going to check out their collections now :)
