New York Fashion Week Spring 2016 Day 8- Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein & More

With the Spring 2016 shows at New York Fashion Week officially wrapped, the runways in the Big Apple have brought us the most stylish trends for the season ahead. On the catwalk at Ralph Lauren, a nautical inspired yacht club theme was in full force for spring. In other words, a classic colour scheme of blue and white made its way into the spotlight. Bold stripes, pops of vibrant red and crisp white trousers were all key looks. Staying true to the collection’s preppy aesthetic, floor-length dresses in blue and white also combined sophistication with casual design.

At Calvin Klein, creative director Francisco Costa featured relaxed 1990s inspired style for Spring 2016. The designs on display were effortlessly sultry, with flowing, silky slip dresses and edgy, deconstructed detail on hemlines. The seductive styles were inspired by lingerie, with crisp long coats adding an elegant layer to pieces. Costa also stuck to a neutral colour palette of off-white, beige and black for a minimalistic look.

Meanwhile, Marc Jacobs closed the shows at New York Fashion Week with a grand finale at the city’s Ziegfeld Theatre. The designer unveiled a quirky collection which fit his Spring 2016 theme of American cinema and culture. On the runway, a patriotic colour palette of red, white and blue set the tone of the collection. The creations themselves featured shiny metallic detail, shimmering skirts, sequins, fringed detail and plenty of bold stripes. Jacobs combined patterns (such as plaid and argyle) and displayed graphic prints inspired by Janet Leigh’s legendary scream in the 1960 thriller Psycho.
