NYFW RECAP – S/S 2019

September 20, 2018

After living in New York City for over five years, I miss the fast pace, the fashion, and the food!  I LOVE living in Philly, but when NYFW comes around, I usually try to take advantage of every second.  Due to a contract in Jersey, I had to accomplish Fashion Week in just three days!  My biggest take aways from Spring/Summer 2019 shows?  Three words: color, sequins, and clear vinyl!

Meticulously Eccentric S/S 2019 NYFW Show - NYFW Recap

The bold colors of the 80’s are returning with a vengeance.  Daring pinks, purples, blues, greens, and yellows depict a feminine strength as seen in this years Meticulously Eccentric show.  These hues mirror last seasons power suites and encourage women to be strong and confident!  I supported this theme with an all yellow two-piece outfit by Nasty Gal. I complimented the look with a pair of yellow Nasty Gal shades (similar here), blue Report Ladia Heels, and a clear vinyl bag (similar here).

Custo Barcelona s/s 2019 NYFW Show - NYFW Recap

Sequins and metallic’s are taking over the runway! Unlike the over-use of sparkles in the 80’s, this detailing is modernly designed with sophistication and beautiful craftsmanship.  It allows for a feminine touch of elegance, as well as a flirty rebellious feel when added to denim!  These designs from the Custo Barcelona Show (as seen above) showcase this concept perfectly.  Sleek silhouettes give way to delicate embellishments for dresses, jackets, and even boots.  Additionally, he too rocks the bold color statement throughout his line.  The Custo Barcelona show was hands down my favorite show this season!

Lastly, clear vinyl and translucent sleeves will be making their mark in the Spring and Summer of 2019.  My favorite two examples of this glassy trend were the designs at the Vitruvius Collection at the Nolcha Show’s. They designed incredible structured pieces with a strong, mod architectural flare.
