New York Fashion Week SS15 officially kicked off yesterday; of course with it being Spring/Summer we saw a multitude of white looks, mixed with muted pastels, bold brights, military green, summer blacks, and print. ¬†NYFW Day one saw BCBG Max Azria, Chadwick Bell, Kaelen, M.Patmos, Nicholas K, and Tadashi Shoji take the runway. ¬†Take a peek at some of our favourite pieces¬†of the day, what we loved about them and what we didn’t love so much.


BCBG Max Azria: Minimal boho, with muted scarf prints and sun bleached pastel hues.

LOVED: Structured jackets teamed with flowy chiffon skirts/dresses; the simple fem obi belts; the culottes.



Nicholas K: GI Jane goes to Morocco

LOVED: The military green looks the show opened up with; the draped silks that looked ultra cool; the belt bag and horsehair jewellery.

NOT SO MUCH: The tasseled sarongs


M.Patmos: Cool, easy to wear pieces with splices of colour and print.

LOVED: Easy to wear pieces, the Vanessa Hong (The Haute Pursuit) like model; the monochrome prints.

NOT SO MUCH: Tassels, is this a trend we see forming?


Tadashi Shoji: A Venice inspired lace fest

LOVED: Sheer panels, the beautiful white gown with cape; the silhouettes, the shirt dresses

NOT SO MUCH: the large prints were a little much and dragged some of the pieces down


Kaelen: A flirty, yet sophisticated and sexy collection with a great blend of texture and print

LOVED: The white, crew neck, dress/culottes playsuit(?) with pockets (!!!); monochrome pieces; that digital print simple maxi dress (!!!)

NOT SO MUCH: TASSELS!!! That’s it – 3’s a trend! No but in all honesty Kaelen executed this more fringey take on them really well. ¬†Didn’t hate them as much, particularly on the midi skirt, and tiered sleeveless jacket. ¬†I have to ask the question, is it because of the fabric, or it because I’ve seen so many I’m starting to like them? JeeZ!!!


Chadwick Bell: Clean, timeless pieces that can be worn anywhere, anytime!

LOVED: How non-specific it was to seasonal dressing, yes you can wear these pieces for Spring/Summer, but you can also layer them up in a major way for Autumn/Winter (hello, investment pieces); yes a lot of the collection was white, however there were some great winter whites that can literally be worn the whole year round.

NOT SO MUCH: Nothing to say here!


Tome: Started off so well, then it just went to a whole other place – confusing

LOVED: Summer blacks; the laser cut lace combo was a winner; the sleeveless trench; the full pleated rust coloured asymmetric dress.

NOT SO MUCH: That whole other place, the collection doesn’t read as though it was designed with the same person in mind. ¬†The gold lam√© trench could maybe be teased into a major outfit, but as it is below – no.
