Donna Karan Fall-Winter 2015-2016
All Donna Karan’s creations are inextricably linked to the life in New York. The new collection for autumn-summer season once again demonstrated how much the designer loves this city. The runway, on which were walking beautiful models, was designed in urban style and the presented clothing line was extremely appropriate to the lifestyle of fashionistas. The designer chose the colors in accordance with the general atmosphere. The main focus was on black, gray and white. Typical urban shades were successfully diluted with gold that reminded us of the city at night. Impressive were also the dresses and suits: geometric layered ruffles and elongated vertical lines which at first glance resembles many skyscrapers in the Big Apple.
Zac Posen presented again an impressive collection of evening outfits. In the new fall-winter 2015 season, red became the undisputed leader, and red were not only the usual brand’s floor length dresses but also the skirts, blouses, trousers, short fur coats, footwear and accessories. A second equally important color was green, which could be seen in many shades, from intense classic and ending with dimmed green-gray. In addition, the collection also contained shades such as blue, orange, black and silver.
Altuzarra Fall-Winter 2015-2016
Not coincidentally Joseph Altuzarra, aged 28, is called one of the most promising designers of our times. The new “cold” collection reflected designer’s vision of the women wardrobe in male style. The leader of the show proved to be the 18th century dandy look. On the catwalk could be both wool trouser suits in classic style, decorated with geometric prints, as well as fine silk skirts, dresses and blouses. The image has been successfully completed with coats, fur coats and luxury leather jackets. Impressive was also the colors of the collection. For everyday outfits were chosen brown, dark blue, pink, beige, blue, red, black and white, while for evening outfits, the designer chose intense shades of burgundy, gold and classic black.
In her new collection, Victoria Beckham presented discrete and mature clothes, which remained as attractive as other her creations. Comfortable and quite bulky warm sweaters were successfully combined with oblique skirts, while modest dresses were completed with small cutouts. As always, the collection clearly reflected the minimalist style. As accessories and decor, Victoria used only bows in the same color as the image and large buttons. As for the color palette, predominantly monochrome achromatic images were diluted occasionally with faint shades of green, beige and orange.
“During the day, this woman rules the world, and at night- excites the imagination” – this way Diane von Furstenberg described the heroine of the new line of clothes. Since then, the world will be led by women who wear pantsuits, wrap dresses, while at night will those will change in lace and satin dresses made in shades of black and red.
Certainly, the new Ralph Lauren collection will appeal to those who are used to wear not only stylish, but also warm. The designer presented admirers a wide range of outfits for autumn-winter season. Here you can see warm sweaters and knotted dresses, ponchos, jackets, coats, fur coats, jackets, skirts and trousers. As accessories were chosen hats, caps, ties, bulky accessories, wide belts, braces, bags with fringes and gloves in the same shade of shoes. Of course evening outfits could not miss this collection. For this purpose, the designer dressed models in black leather and knit suits in male style and classic floor length dresses. Like other fall-winter shows, the basic colors of this collection proved again to be black, white and gray, which often were diluted with warm shades of brown, bronze and gold.
The famous designer Carolina Herrera, aged 76, is a veteran and a true connoisseur of the American fashion industry. Admirers of this brand are well familiar with the fact that the creative director for a very long period of time has remained true to the traditions and customs of the “old school”. However, the new fall-winter collection reflected a completely more new modern look. Carolina Herrera personally admitted that she does not want to seek inspiration in the past, present and future is much more interesting. The theme of the new collection became water. Using themed prints, color ranges, textures and decor, the designer managed to convey the irresistibility and pure beauty of the waves.
The New York Fashion Week was quite impressive both for millions of admirers, as well as for designers participants. Especially if we are talking about debutant collections. The creative director of Oscar de la Renta, Peter Copping, had to show the world his vision of fashion for the fall-winter season without the help and participation of the great couturier Oscar de la Renta, who died shortly after the appointment of the new brand’s representative. The collection proved to be quite varied. The most popular prints were the geometric and of course floral prints. Peter Copping presented discrete and very elegant suits, skirts and blouses that fit perfectly the dress code of the office. A lady in Oscar de la Renta style is refined, luxurious and modest. She is a fan of classic, knows everything about style and is familiar with all the current fashion trends. For the evening look, the designer presented gorgeous bustier fitted and flare dresses. The color palette, compared to other brands, is very diverse. The achromatic colors were replaced with restricted burgundy, red, gold, blue, magenta, yellow and shades of purple.
According to the opinion of American designers, this is how the fashion shows for fall-winter 2015-2016 season should look like. After reviewing the main collection, it becomes clear that the new cold season promises to be quite sophisticated, sometimes a little conservative, but still very diverse and interesting.
