New York Fashion Week 2013 Roundup Part 1

So despite being in Paris, one of the fashion capitals of the world at the moment, there is a particular fashion city that is in an entirely different continent at the forefront of everybody's mind right now. That's because it is New York Fashion Week. Amidst snow storms the fash-pack have gathered to witness an exciting time where designers get to show off their immense skills. Autumn/winter collections, especially ready to wear, are so much more fun to go through as there's more styling and just more to see because there are many more pieces what with layering and coats etc. Here is a little round up of three shows, Helmut Lang, Tibi and Alexander Wang, that I predict are setting trends or at least continuing some existing ones. There are some major similarities across the three that I have noticed. In particular there are muted palettes remaining mostly in black, white and grey but for dramatic pops of colour with cobalt blue or a head to toe green ensemble. Cuts and detailing make for high drama while looks stay unfussy. There as a modern elegance introduced here where keeping it simple seems so much more chic. Bomber jackets keep cool and polo necks and snoods give a youthful vibe. The skirts and jackets will suit a woman of any age making it all the more worthwhile to invest in these sorts of timeless pieces. Tailoring prevails across all three shows proving my passion for androgynous dressing is still painfully current. For a more feminine look other than swapping your trouser for a supreme skirt, there is also the option to work some sheer panelling that will up the sex appeal of any look.

Dresses are statement and timeless, urban youthfulness prevails and silhouettes are powerful with oversized shoulders. These three design houses have got it going on! I am going to use these looks for inspiration today as I get ready to go to Champs-Élysées on this fine Sunday morning.
