New York Fashion Week Spring 2016 Roundup- Anna Sui, Marchesa & More
With the runways at New York Fashion Week officially pointing to the key looks for Spring 2016, designs for the seasons ahead are brilliant, bold and adorned with busy prints. On the catwalk at Proenza Schouler, co-creative directors Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough unveiled a Spanish inspired collection with pops of white, black and red. The label featured sharply tailored white jackets, pleated trousers and flowing, asymmetrical dresses with crochet detail.
Meanwhile, Anna Sui turned to the tropical colours and vibrant hues of Hawaii for her latest collection. The island themed collection also touched upon decades of the past, drawing inspiration from the glamorous 1930s and rock and roll 1950s. On the runway, this translated into punchy red and yellow floral accents, printed sundresses and vintage inspired one piece swimsuits with sultry cut-out detail.
At Marchesa, designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig featured an elaborate collection inspired by a theme of caged birds and flowers under a dark sky. The Marchesa designs for Spring 2016 featured sheer, flowing tulle hemlines, corset detail, voluminous skirts and a colour palette of black, white and pastel tones. A floor-length strapless creation made a statement with its long, feathery skirt and soft rainbow tones.
At DKNY, simplicity reigned supreme with 1990s style power shoulders, oversized blazers, pinstripes and a focus on chic business looks. Asymmetrical black skirts, bold buttons and sheer midi dresses all made a splash on the runway.
For Spring 2016, designer Michael Kors contrasted monochromatic black and white ensembles with fresh, playful pops of red, blue and orange. Floaty dresses featured tiered hems and billowing sleeves, with red and black appliquéd poppies adding detail to the collection.
At Oscar de le Renta, creative director Peter Copping showcased an elegant spring collection which was inspired by the world of bullfighting in Spain. The latest line brought rich reds, ruffled skirts, black ribbon detail and vivid carnation accents to the catwalk in New York City.
Co-creative directors Mark Badgley and James Mischka of Badgley Mischka focused on a theme of Buenos Aires in the 1950s, and displayed draped, soft fabrics on the runway. The focus was on romantic details, with designs like tailored tweed shorts and a matching jacket, and ladylike pastel shades. Airy chiffon dresses, long tulle skirts and splashy blossom prints all left their mark for Spring 2016.
