New York Fashion Week just happened and some of our favourite designers like Oscar de la Renta, The Row, Brendon Maxwell, Tom Ford and more showed off some standout collections for Fall 2020. In case you missed it, here’s your ultimate one-stop-shop look at some of the best shows.
Marc Jacobs did not disappoint with his show at the Park Avenue Armory. Inspired by American icons like Jackie O, Jacobs presented a collection that was filled with clean and simple cuts. A-line dresses accented with preppy collars and oversized coats paired with Mary Jane shoes arrived with bold colours like red, silver, yellow and more. Miley Cyrus then walked for the designer in a simple black bra and pants.
Nepalese-American fashion designer Prabal Gurung took to the Rainbow Room in Rockefeller Center to present a dreamy and elegant collection. When one thinks of New York City style, the immediate thought is all-black, but not for Gurung. He presented a collection of eccentric eveningwear that was fused with prints, bold colours and sensuality.
Sisters Laura and Kate Mulleavy of Rodarte presented a gothic yet dark and romantic collection at St. Bartholomew’s Church on Park Avenue. Pulling references from 1992’s Dracula, the duo re-imagined the Rodarte girl with a more goth aesthetic. Dark lips, black fringe, and cape-like looks added to the appeal of the theme while maintaining a wearable touch. The collection also saw the brand’s signature looks, from wide collars, intricate beading, florals, and ruffles to complete the range.
Oversized, minimalistic, effortless and chic are just a few words that can be used to describe The Row. For Fall 2020, twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen presented a collection that proved that they are fashion veterans. Sticking to what they know best, the looks saw oversized pants, coats, blazers, layered looks, turtlenecks, oversized clutches and more. The colour palette stayed true to their brand ethos, kept at tonal and monochrome, with added pops of cobalt and brown accent detailing.
Taking to the American Museum of Natural History in New York, Brandon Maxwell presented his vision of Americana fashion. A bevy of tailored outwear, suits, biker jackets, leather pants and more appeared on the runway. In addition, he also presented a range of eveningwear that was completed with bandeau tops and exaggerated bows at the neck.
Now fashion week did not start in New York. Instead, Tom Ford unveiled his fall 2020 collection at Milk Studios in Los Angeles California. The collection that consisted of 52 men’s and women’s ready-to-wear looks saw denim ensembles, psychedelic prints, tailored suits, evening gowns. The final look was a completely laced wedding dress to close the show.
