Bows, Bows, Bows

From the runways to the streets, bows had a real moment in New York. Tanner Fletcher was a standout, having created that viral unisex bow suit previously – famously worn by Tom Daley. The duo has found fresh inspiration in a slightly more grunge-retro style, embellished with pretty, contrasting bows. We loved the detail that went into the hairstyling at Sandy Liang who, like LoveShackFancy , embraced feminine detail hard this season.


Lace & Subtle Statements

Lace was dotted throughout designer collections – adding femininity and glam to more gothic inspired pieces at Anna Sui, and an elevated feel at Jason Wu. At Rodarte, lace seemed like a natural fit for the overtly feminine designer.


Silk Suits

The spring/summer collections rarely omit a silky set or dress, but with this being autumn/winter, we were surprised to see silk-centric tailoring dominate the shows like it did. Heavily focused on a spring-themed colour palette, Christian Cowan opted for lots of purple and green silk, while Prabal Grurung leant into bright pink. Expect it to be everywhere during the 2023 party season.

Next-Level Outerwear

When we say maximalism was front of mind during NYFW, we’re not just referring to hem lengths. Designers fully lent into the trend on the outerwear front, with an abundance of bold silhouettes and styles on offer – be it neon shades at Maison Margiela, faux furs at Alexander Wang and an oversized bedazzled number at Christian Cowan. Wearable pieces took centre stage at The Row, which confirmed scarf details will return for another season via its newest silhouette – a floor-length, belted wrap coat.


Star Cameos

As well as appearing in American Horror Story, American Psycho and Bones & All, Chloë Sevigny is a fashion muse – having modelled for Chloé, Simone Rocha and Miu Miu, she was no newbie in New York. Other regular fixtures Emily Ratajkowski and Julia Fox walked for Simkhai and Luis De Javier respectively.

Street Style Winner

It’ll be unsurprising to most that influencer Leonie Hanne topped our list as the street style star of New York. Always adventurous with her looks, she treated us to plenty of voluminous gowns, bright colours, feathers and sequins. Our favourite look has to be the red Caroline Herrera number she wore to mark Valentine's Day and to attend the designer's show.
