Let’s talk about ANGLES.
Ronald van der Kemp’s collection was fascinating, to say the least.
Not only did he ‘wow’ the fashion world with the array of colors and fabric compilations-
But, also with his wide range and use of drastic angles.
Throughout the collection, his angles shined through by showcasing the female body in various ways.
The array of angles played games with my eyes, but kept me excited to view the next piece.
From the deep v-necks, to the sharp and high neck lines- the designer paid close attention to how to keep the collection cohesive.
A ton of the elements that hold this collection together should be explosive on the scene during Fall.
The mixture of classic elements and street motivated concepts of styling is what will cause the feel of this collection to be transparent to all walks of life.
The collection also dives into the sphere of crossing lines regarding the sexes.
Since women sporting menswear or male inspired looks, I’d say that the various styles and designs created are being elevated quickly.
I think these looks make a woman feel powerful.
Like she’s in control of her life, her destiny and her sexuality… On all levels.
I can see these looks becoming very achieveable by utilizing your favorite thrift shop to pick up a few oversized blazers, a pair of leather trousers, a full length trench coat and a vintage pair of heavy-duty cargos.
I cannot wait to see some of these angle-inspired looks resurfacing on the streets on NYC this fall.
Alexandre Vauthier brought heavy military vibes that are always necessary for the fall.
With the compilation of gaudy trenches, oversized jumpsuits, and heavy shouldered wrap dresses, this collection harped on the essential layering pieces of the season.
Although the collection was based on the familiar fashion trend, the silhouettes created within this collection are vibrant and fresh.
With this militant themed collection, it also represents power within women as well.
Think about how a woman feels sporting military inspired clothing that was initially intended for men.
The designs capitalized on power shoulders, slouchy joggers, and many oversized garments that compliment the shape of a woman.
Heavy hardware completed each look of this collection.
It showcased fall street style, while also holding elegance with remnants of evening wear.
With a heavy sense of layering, one can accomplish looks like these with ease.
They can be created with many essentials that are currently present in your closet right now.
Borrowing your boyfriends huge button down, cuffing your boyfriend jeans and leaving a few buttons undone is a start.
The look is edgy and heavily dependant on power pieces to bring it.
Bring ME metallics.
Ulyana Sergeenko sent a ton of metallic pieces down the runway back in February that helped set a trend that we’ll see unraveling here soon.
Bringing sequined wrap dresses and bedazzled body suits to the forefront is not unusual.
It just always seems to captivate an audience in the same way.
We seem to constantly fall in love with metallics every time winter comes around.
I admired this collection due to its spin on the classic formal styles that are heavily presented in womenswear today.
There were statements made with formal jumpsuits, billowy dresses, and simple wrap dresses.
Through this collection, upscale and casual looks were able to shine due to the metallic materials used to create each piece.
Metallics will be super prominent this fall.
We can talk trends all day and night, but these are a few that I see as most wearable and explosive this season.
