Fashion Week: In Review
Although most of us are pulling out our sweaters and dusting off our combat boots, the fashion world is bustling with anxiety for April’s arrival.
Fashion houses are always 2 steps ahead. They do this in order to give buyers enough the opportunity to purchase pieces and have them arrive just in time for the new season.
It’s all about preparation when it comes to most things in life. If you wait too long to buy your winter coat you may miss out on any good deals or not be able to find your size. The really smart shoppers just like designers are always ready to snag or showcase the hottest trend. It’s never too early to plan ahead. Check out a few gems from fashion week below and start dreaming about all the possibilities of Spring. You never know what may spark your inner style God.
Marina is fairly unknown to the general public but wildly loved amongst her peers. It won’t be long before the world loves her as well. Her collection merges elements of two completely opposite eras, the 90s and the 60s. A time of the modern independent woman meets her more conservative counterpart.
How 2nd Street blends the 90s and 60s.
Printed jumpsuits and organza bombers aren’t typical things most people would think of when imagining men’s fashion. Dior understands that the no longer follow old school rules of our grandparents. Pairing the classic tailored suit with new fabrics and prints shows homage to our four fathers and allows us to speak our truth at the same time.
How 2nd Street puts a spin on classic staples like a collared shirt.
A detail oriented persons dream. Ditching the obvious choice of a colorful Spring pallet Dion chose the simplicity of neutrals and let her styling talent be the start of the show. Leather garter belts and harness were paired with turtlenecks and blazers, utility details flowed seamlessly throughout these pieces not a thing out of place. This collection truly depicts that simple does not equate to boring.
How 2nd Street adds detail to simple outfits.
The Rick Owens collection did not disappoint. It was a tasteful mix of ready to wear pieces, utilitarian details and metallic highlights. Rick called on Champion as a collaborator for these street style runway looks. Half worn zipper jumpsuits and short hemmed tailored jackets in snakeskin created an orderly but twisted show. This collection was complete art.
How 2nd street keeps it casual and a little weird.
September fashion week was full of highs and lows. Designers showed up and showed out with their Spring 2020 collections. Everything was exactly what you would expect spring to be; full of color, fun, whimsy and freshness.
