Here are some of our favorite details of NYFW as seen on humans on the streets.
This winter has been one of the coldest by far but that obviously didn’t stop the fashion-istas from turning out the style on the streets of NYC. All season we have been seeing a lot of fuzzy, over-sized coats and that was definitely a re-occurring trend this week. Most models stuck to the typical monochromatic winter color scheme but they added pops of colors in sneakers, key chains or funky sunglasses. We saw a couple daring embellished leather jackets and from what we can gather the leather pant trend is here to stay!
Asymmetry is the name of the game for Opening Ceremony this FW14 from strategically placed zippers to uneven skirt hems and draping long tees. The collection stays true to an overall monotone theme of black, ivory and dark green with pops of royal blue and blush. Jackets of all kinds make a big statement on this runway ranging from elongated cocoon fitting car coats, to lightweight trenches in bold colors, to color-blocked waist length jackets. Get ready to load up on layers ladies, a trend seen across multiple runways this fall, with Opening Ceremony being no exception, is layering of all sorts. Skirts over pants, Jackets on jackets, shirts over sweatshirts and more.
A total departure from the breezy white floral silhouettes seen in her SS14 line, the FW14 line from Tory Burch focused on over the top extravagant fabrics, used in all the right ways. Starting off with armor inspired muted charcoals, brocade prints metallics and leathers, the show quickly moved into deep reds and rich navys paired with gorgeous tapestry prints, heavy knit layers, embroidery and bold hardware, creating a distinctly medieval vibe. To maintain a modern feel, the looks were styled with the familiar over the knee boots and socks we have all come to love, paired with some of the most awesome handbags we have ever seen. Ever. Chinese take-out box, or fur muffler anyone? Needless to say this collection has us ready to skip over summer and head straight into fall and all it’s splendor.
The versatility of Alexander Wang’s FW14 collection seems like it was actually made to keep up with the city lifestyle. The fashionistas trekked from NYC to Brooklyn in a snow storm to see fashions designed especially for a commute like that. Many of these pieces even had built-in utilities, made for the modern adventurer with storage designed especially for smart phones, moleskin’s or lipstick. Although the pop colors, textures and heat-activated leather scream high fashion innovation there is undeniable functionality reflected in the outerwear and footwear in Wang’s show. The over the knee leather boots and jackets were definitely the star of the show proving that function can indeed be fashionable.
NYFW has come to an end but street style is eternal! Even though the shows and excitement of NYFW has ended our team is going to continue to bring you a weekly dose of the hottest everyday looks off the streets. Here are some of our favorite looks following the pastel trend from the final week of NYFW!
These are our favorite looks from the Clover Canyon FW14 runway show! We are proud to be carrying Clover Canyon starting this Spring, in fact you can see their new arrivals on our floors today. This brand perfectly channels the colorful, and eclectic spirit of California. We appreciate their color palettes, artful influence and how they bring life to our retail floor in such dreary times. For Fall we are seeing an old Irish influence in the hallucinatory imagery, tartan stripes, and lots of wool! Stay tuned for our SS14 Clover Canyon arrivals at our Boston and Cambridge Tannery locations!
We put together some of our favorite looks from brands that we carry here at The Tannery from the NYFW runway shows. Paint splattered denim, lumber jack prints, and name embrodiered mechanic jackets from Rag & Bone FW14 bring a working class chic to the runway. We love the over-sized comfort and warmth that these pieces bring to the table. Sporty shoes in pop colors solidifies the ode to the blue collar look that Rag & Bone does so perfectly.
