NEW YORK, Sept 11 — It was a busy weekend for fashion in New York, where big-name designers such as Victoria Beckham and Alexander Wang unveiled their Spring/Summer 2018 collections.
Prabal Gurung's take on Spring/Summer 2018 was decidedly colourful, with cyan blues and cerise pinks clashing on the runway with forest greens and mustard yellows. The cuts were youthful and fun, with ruffled collars, voluminous sleeves and semi-sheer slip dresses among the presentation's first looks. High-waisted trousers, tailored shorts and flowing gowns kept things just the right shade of grown-up.
The colour palette was decidedly feminine and spring-like at Victoria Beckham, where pastel blues and greens were mixed up with creamy yellows and dusky pinks. The fabric selection mirrored this aesthetic, with soft silks and cottons forming the lynchpin of the collection. Cuts were tailored yet slouchy, with oversized shirts and statement blazers toned down by swishy skirts and draped jackets.
Leather harnesses, T-shirt dresses and fairytale motifs were just some of the contrasting elements on show at Philipp Plein, whose raunchy collection also featured brocade maxi skirts and full-length gowns with Gothic ruffles. Luckily there were also plenty of thigh-high splits to keep things interesting.
Streetwear was given an editorial edge at Alexander Wang, where tailored trousers were teamed with silk camisole tops, teeny crop tops and mesh shoes. The designer's collaboration with Adidas Originals could be seen in the sporty retro jackets and triple-stripe details throughout the collection.
Spring fashion was whimsical and bohemian at Vivienne Tam, where delicate dresses were smattered with Chinese motifs for a thoroughly romantic take on the season. — AFP-Relaxnews
