Highlights from NYFW: Fall 2015

Last Thursday marked the end of New York Fashion Week and it’s safe to say the week was full of firsts. From Kanye West kicking off the season with the debut of his Adidas collaboration (and having a pretty impressive front row) to Karlie Kloss and Kendall Jenner stealing the show at Michael Kors. Peter Copping, Oscar de la Renta’s Creative Director, showed the world his first collection following the passing of the legendary fashion designer and perhaps the most fascinating—American Horror Story actress Jamie Brewer made history as the first model with Down syndrome to walk the runway at Carrie Hammer’s, “Role Models Not Runway Models.”

In this week full of new strides, you can imagine all of the buzz on our Instagram feeds and Twitter accounts—fresh designs and trends popping up faster than you can say “Gigi Hadid.” This may have been the last NYFW at Lincoln Center (tear), but some things never change. From Victoria Beckham to Rebecca Minkoff to BCBG, I’ve highlighted some of the chicest 2015 collections that will have you counting down the days until fall.  

• Victoria Beckham

It was love at first sight. The singer-turned-designer created a minimalist collection of comfy knits from head to toe. From feminine, silhouette dresses to oversized, asymmetrical coats paired with a mid-calve boot, the collection is a staple for a day to night transition. And the camel colored buttons? The perfect addition.

• DKNY

Can you say colorblocked? DKNY lights up the runway with a range of bright solids paired with edgy platforms. The menswear-inspired line brings a refreshing look to the catwalk with its tailored suits and jewels found on coats and select dressesreally conforming to the body. There are plenty of neutrals to go around as well.

• BCBG

Two words—bohemian chic. It’s all about the layers with the line’s mixture of vibrants and neutrals. Each piece has a high neckline complemented with embroidered, geometric prints and just the right touch of fringe. We can’t forget about the fur Max Azria adds to the coats and boots to finish off a warmer look. Yes, please.

• Rebecca Minkoff

The anticipated collection pulled through. With a 70s rock 'n' roll theme, the collection blended a vintage and modern feel. Minkoff’s darker brown hues popped with additional reds, oranges, and greens. Fringe stole the spotlight, but not without the geometric tights and two-piece looks. Ponchos and hats were a big staple as well and Minkoff’s feather-piece necklaces really brought diversity to the line. It’s all in the details!

• Tory Burch

If you can’t tell from my favorites listed above, I’m all about the bohemian look. But this—this takes things to a whole other level. The Moroccan vibes make you want to hop on a plane and flaunt the pieces across a desert dune. Combination is key with Burch describing her line as, “Marrakech meets Chelsea.” The exotic twists found within the marble prints speak for themselves.

Some more personal favorites include Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Anna Sui, Rachel Zoe—the list goes on. As we close the chapter on this magical week, we’re only reminded how fast it really goes... and how far away we are from fall. Until September, Collegiettes!
