New York Fashion Week
Spring 2014 Trends Report

New York Fashion Week has come to and end on Thursday so it’s time to draw a line and bring in the trends. From 90’s inspiration and tablecloth prints to swirls and whites. Have a look at the New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014 Trends Report.

White Out

The color white was seen a lot on the runway at New York Fashion Week: at BCBG MAXAZRIA, Narciso Rodriguez, Prabal Gurung, Sass & Bide, Cesar Galindo and Alexander Wang, among others. Being such a refreshing pick for spring 2014, the color white is easy to wear along other colors or along for a head-to-toe crisp ensemble.

The BCBG MAXAZRIA SS14 collection was simplistic showcasing not only a few crisp pieces in a palette of white, while the Australian brand Sass & Bide delivered classic white paint-suits with elaborate flower detailing.

Alexander Wang has always delivered clean-cut minimalist collections. And for his Spring/Summer 2014 line, the designer went for a lot of white spots of “color”. The runway was filled with white cropped tops paired with tailored skirts, white blowy dresses and of course dashing head-to-toe white ensembles.

Peek-a-Boo Whites

Another spin on the white trends came from J. Crew, Lisa Perry, Tess Giberson, Tory Burch, Oscar de la Renta. For a more attention-grabbing look, the classic white garments were revamped with a cool peek-a-boo style: laser-cut leather top at J. Crew, a lattice-inspired cut-out at Tory Burch, and diamond pattern at Oscar de la Renta.

The New Polo Shirt

The obsession with polo shirts is on the menu again! Band of Outsider transformed the polo shirt into a tunic shape shirt but keeping the neckline intact, while Alice + Olivia paired the iconic polo shirt with a floor-length graphic ball skirt. Tommy Hilfiger always had at least a polo inspired piece in its collection and this time the label reinvented the polo trend by adding some surfer references.

90’s Era

From crop-tops, faux-flannel plaid, logo gear and overalls the 90’s are back! From Rodarte to DKNY, Tadashi Shoji, Alexander Wang and Rag & Bone, the 90’s inspired garments filled the catwalk. 

Purple Haze

Purple shades were present at NY Fashion Week and also managed to entered Pantone Trend Report for Spring/Summer ‘14. At New York Fashion Week models sported sweet shade of lilac at Cushnie et Ochs, Prabal Gurung and Nonoo.

The Tablecloth Prints

Oscar de la Renta sent on the catwalk a kimono-style evening jacket in black and white cross-hatched lines, while Derek Lam tailored the trend on a A-line dresses in oversize gingham, complete with matching turbans.
