Well, that’s it! New York Fashion Week is over for another season and we’re officially in mourning, because the SS15 collections were just out of this world. 

But hey, fashion month ain’t over- you’ve still got London then Milan waiting, so don’t fret about feeling cut short of your Spring ’15 outfit planning. Besides, in case you didn’t know, Fall is just around the corner and we’re super excited to slip into those booties, and keep ourselves warm and comfy with sweaters! Aren’t you? 

But let’s go back to #NYFW. From #StreetStyle and trend spotting, to celeb and FROW sightings, and of course, obsessing over your favorite designer’s collection, there’s always something interesting every season.

So we’ve got a list of things we’re obsessed with and then some other things that went straight in our Burn Book 😉

Here’s the 10 things we’ve learned from NYFW SS15…

1. Kendall Jenner er… “Kendall” was the “IT” model for NYFW

Kendall is by far the most buzzed model for New York Fashion Week. Starting off with her first appearance at the Diane von Furstenburg show alongside Naomi Campbell and Candice Swanepoel, she has dominated the runway this season.

We spotted her next rocking a two-piece bikini at the Tommy Hilfiger, then she hit the runway for the Donna Karan presentation. Lastly, she made her second runway appearance for Marc Jacobs, which was a great way to end NYFW. She’s definitely doing the rounds in NYFW with appearances left, right and centre and we know this is just the beginning for her. You go, Kendall! 

2. Kudos to Fashion-Forward Thinking Designers

Every season, we’re always blown away by certain designers who think outside the box. Prabal Gurung & Creatures of the Wind expanded their offerings with a footwear collection, which debuted along with their Spring presentation. A great move for both designers, because a girl can never have too many shoes, right?

Then, Rebecca Minkoff had her audience wearing 3D glasses to see the final looks in her show, complete with models working her new wearable technology jewelry collection. Amazing!

3. Flowers and Pastels clearly spells out S-P-R-I-N-G

Need we say more? These colors and patterns are trends that always have a direct relationship with Spring, but it’s the way how designers work around it each season which keep it fresh. BCBG MAX AZRIA, Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Michael Kors and Jeremy Scott added some spice and edge by focusing on specific floral patterns and pastel hues this Spring. Honestly, we feel like Spring is an endless garden party with their pieces, and we actually don’t mind at all.  (more…)

The countdown is officially on! And no, we don’t just mean to our AMAZING #shopcadelfw pop-up event and party, we mean to actual London Fashion Week!

New York Fashion Week is drawing to a close after an amazing few days of shows, with stand outs from Alexander Wang, Tommy Hilfiger (hello Kendall Jenner!) and J. Crew.

We’ve followed it closely, from all the top shows to the hottest street styles hitting the tent; we even caught Rihanna heading into Alexander Wang on Saturday!

So as the spotlight shifts to London, here’s our pick of the shows we just can’t wait to see this season!

 

1. House of Holland

Who? The King of Slogans

Why? The celeb packed FROW for one reason! Expect to see the Primrose Hill set out in full force, plus the two Lily’s (Allen and Collins) have been papped in rarely anything else for the past few months, so they are pretty much a shoo in for this season. Henry Holland’s AW14 collection was my favourite to date; an amazing collection of vibrant jewel colours, bold solgans and plenty of sequins to liven up the dull winter. Can he top this for SS15? Oh I’m sure he’ll give it his best!

Where? Saturday 13th September, 6.30pm

 

2. Topshop Unique

Who? Er, the most popular high street chain has a high end line… AS IF you didn’t know!

Why? Well if the ‘who’ section of this little preview doesn’t convince you, then last season’s wondrous oversized furs, stunning tailoring and downright gorgeous sixties mini dresses sure will! Topshop pretty much have the teen to early twenties market sewn up and this is just another string to their ever expanding bow. Always a celeb magnet, the FROW is bound to be bursting and we have a sneaky feeling a certain Kendall Jenner may well be walking this season too. Watch this space.

Where? Sunday 14th September, 3pm

New York Fashion Week kicked off yesterday, marking the official start of Fashion Month! We’re beyond excited for London Fashion Week and our amazing Shopcade pop up event coming VERY soon, but until then let’s focus on NY and their SS15 offerings!

With a jam packed schedule to get through for the next week, we thought we’d make it nice and simple for you and give you the lowdown on the shows you can’t afford to miss!

Here’s the New York shows we are SUPER excited to see this season at #MBFW

 

1. Marc Jacobs

Who? Oh come on, it’s Marc Jacobs! As if we need to explain who this legend is! 😉

Why? The swinging sixties trend that you are currently eyeing up all over the high street? Yeah, you have MJ to thank for that and his AW14 offering showcased in Feb. He always presents such a covetable, wearable collection, so we’re fairly certain whatever he brings to the table this season we’ll be raving about in six months time yet again!

When? Thursday 11th September, 6pm

 

2. Jeremy Scott

Who? Jeremy Scott, the super cool Creative Director of Moschino.

Why? Because he’s plotting with Miley Cyrus and we’re likely to see the results all over his NYFW show! He let slip at the VMA’s last month that he’ll be using ‘cool kids’ instead of models on the runway and Miley has a key role in the project. Interesting! If it’s anything like last season’s Moschino triumph of slogan pieces (he actually made McDonald’s cool!) then we are in for a visual treat.

When? Wednesday 10th September, 1pm
