As FROW-ers, supermodels, and street-style stars pack up their suitcases and head across the pond for the second leg of Fashion Month in London, we begin to decipher what we just saw on the runways in the Big Apple. With so many shows and so little time, Savoir Flair is decoding the catwalks week by week. With this, we bring you the New York edition of #TrendTakeaway.
In just seven short days, we were served enough 2018 trends to last all of summer – and the best part is this is only the beginning. Although many of the trends seen were a natural progression from some of summer’s biggest looks, many are new and welcome palate-cleansers for Fall 2018. From the sartorially safe to downright bold, keep scrolling to discover what the likes of Bottega Veneta, Calvin Klein, and Victoria Beckham brought to the table, then begin making your very own FW18 wish list.
If you can spot it on a safari, it's a trend.
Even the most subdued or somber shows couldn’t resist a hint of print this week. The much-loved-by-millennials Adam Selman went crazy with tiger stripes on slipdresses and halterneck tops, while Victoria Beckham, Carolina Herrera, and Calvin Klein stuck with faithful leopard print on oversized, boxy coats.
Feeling hot hot hot (pink).
It seems that, as seasons progress, so too does our journey around the color wheel. This time around, the spotlight is on shocking pink. Hellessy and Alexander Wang heroed the color in a big way across suiting and cool separates, while Carolina Herrera used the hue on beautiful dresses.
(Even More) Suits...
... but not as you know them.
First came power suiting, then came oversized suiting. And for Fall/Winter 2018? Relaxed and deconstructed suiting, of course! Loose, sleeveless, and cut-out tailoring was everywhere this week, especially at Boss Woman and Dion Lee.
Rich colors are here to stay.
As a surprising continuation from last fall, this week has been all about soft spice-rack tones. Cinnamon and caramel were favored on velvet fabrics at Bottega Veneta, while Ulla Johnson and Anna Sui mixed dark and light on separates with shades of cumin and pink peppercorn.
