Rave: NYFW highlights

For the last week, New York Fashion Week has dominated our news feeds, time lines and Twitter. After seeing the collections online (and a couple in person), we can’t help but get excited about our very own World MasterCard Fashion Week just around the corner.
Fashion week can be overwhelming, so much to see, way too much to read and a ton of collections, new designers and trends to follow. Here, we’ve picked a few of our favourite shows with looks we’d love to rock.

New Zealand based Karen Walker showed a collection full of great pieces and accessories including her sunnies and amazing shoes. We fell in love with the jackets, featuring pops of colourful shirts and the very wearable skirts and dresses, take a peek at the full show here. We’ll take one of everything please.

Beads, pom poms and tassels were all over Altuzarra‘s FW collection. All of Joseph Altuzarra’s looks were fun, flirty and we could find a place to wear each and every one. Check out the full collection here at Style.com.

Always a great show – Marc Jacobs incorporated oversized hats with their structural dresses and chunky knits to put on an eccentric show with lots of texture. Though we may not be stepping out in a big fuzzy hat anytime soon, the skirts, dresses and shoes are on our radar for fall.

Other notable show shout-outs include Gen Art’s Samantha Pleet show, Theyskens’ Theory and Derek Lam.
And as with any fashion week, outside the tents models, editors and fashion-forward attendees are stopped for their street style looks. After hours of enviously following our favourite sites, we’ve picked some of our favourite bloggers with street style we covet. 
Elin Kling always manages to look effortlessly stylish – she mixes a palette of black, greys, leather (all staples in our wardrobes) and pulls them together in fashion-forward looks.

Hanneli Mustaparta always has a chic, polished look. Being a former model probably doesn’t hurt either. She does great things with colour and can really do no wrong in our eyes.

Leandra Medine, the Man Repeller always makes our lists – her innovative combos and mixing of prints, patterns and fabrics inspires us to increase our layers, amp up our accessories and experiment with new looks. Isabel Marant sneakers paired with a cocktail dress? We’re into it.
