New York City is currently in the middle of the most anticipated events of the year; the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014.
From February 6-13th, designers at the top of the game are sending models down the runway to show off a first look at hot trends that will be hitting streets the following season.
The week is entertaining for all; from top bloggers and highbrow celebrities, to fashion lovers watching on their laptops online.
Fall 2014 fashion will be all about a Western comeback, oversized layers, interesting cuts, sheer and neutral textiles, and re-colored hues.
First off, Chanel stepped up next seasons trends earlier during the Dallas show by sending models down the runway in a cowboy chic collection; full of fringed scarves, frayed edges, blanket coats, and riding inspired boots.
Other top designers, like Alexander Wang, played with bright cobalt and neon hues mixed with menswear inspired oversized jackets and sporty nods.
Victoria Beckam’s show displayed many beautiful chiffon box pleats, ruffled sheer tops, and abstract prints, proving all will would be must haves for Fall.
Diane von Furstenberg’s highly anticipated 40th anniversary show focused on the wrap; in dress, blouse, and cardigan form. What followed: a partnering of these wraps accompanied by velvet skirts, cropped jersey trousers, and fur coats.
Rag & Bone created a mash-up look of many styles including fifties bowling shirts and varsity jackets to military combat trousers and fuzzy lumberjack checks.
These few designers are only a little taste of what Fall 2014 fashion will consist of, but so far so good. Designers pull inspiration from everywhere, providing us with something new from everyone.
“A lot of my work is a matter of reacting to surprises in life”, says Wang.
Each designer is different and the Fall 2014 looks are refreshing, bold, and creative.
