Our Fave Looks from New York Fashion Week (So Far)

New York Fashion week is well and truly under way - with oodles of tailored cuts, luscious velvets and sexy silks - these are our favourite picks (hint: it’s all about blazers, jackets, and pant-suits).

Nicholas K

The brain child of Nicholas and Christopher Kunz, the brothers founded their label on luxury and sustainability. They make the bold claim of knowing their producers personally, and even their alpacas.

The Nicholas K NYFW collection features an eclectic mix of flowing feminine fabrics, layered with utilitarian coats, high sheen leather boots and safari pants. The matching fabric sash belt recurs throughout the beige and burnt orange heavy collection - tied around the waist, hips and thighs and we kind of love it. Styling each ensemble with berets, headbands and severe shades - we were left wondering if this is what the couture warrior of the future might look like?

Ryan Roche

Ryan Roche is a ready to wear designer, known for her muted palettes, and fabulously draped knits. What she is less known for is her commitment to #DesigningTheChange through her sustainable, low-impact production with women’s cooperatives in Nepal - and local manufacturing in the US.  

Her NYFW collection immediately evokes a fairy tale romanticism - with blood reds, matte blacks, and snow whites - and layers of flowing block-colour fabrics. While Roche's collection features this season's omnipresent staples - blazers, trenches and slip dresses all in mono-colouring - her work seems to rise above mere trend with its stunning display of satins, silks wools, faux furs, and lace details. Perfection.

Jason Wu

Wu has made his name for his attention to detail and use of luscious fabrics - manufacturing his collections in the NY garment district and sourcing his specially designed fabrics from Italy and France. 

Wu's aesthetic exudes a timeless feminine style that recalls the most handsome elements of 20th century fashion, and his NYFW ready to wear collection does not disappoint. 

While oversized, heavily masculine silhouettes are dominating the runways - Wu offers his classically feminine take with sharp, sexy pant suit ensembles in monotones and neutrals, and absolutely stunning coats in bold red and gold. 

But what absolutely breaks our hearts in this collection are Wu’s fabrics. Featuring stunning tules, satins, velvets and intricate but simple detailing - he offers a tasteful interpretation of the uber trendy pajama suit and trench coat.
