NYFW 2016 -the best so far / by Melissa Pinkstone


Alexander Wang AW/16

Fashion Week So Far



NY Fashion Week started last week, kicking off with a mix of well known names and new game players out to make a name for themselves. Alexander Wang, Altuzarra and Baja East were some of the best shows so far this week. Sending out goth/ punk vibes was Alexander Wang with his collection of twisted Coco Chanel - esque twin piece suits, metal studded skirts and sheer lace tops. As a fan of anything punk rock, Wang's anti-fashion anarchy was a much welcomed presence at Fashion Week.

Baja East a some what new comer has already gained much press at  NY Fashion Week especially with there AW16 collection of urban warrior style pieces. The earthy tones and tribal details combined with simple wools and cottons creates a interesting combination that I don't mind looking at. Another is Altuzarra with its woven chunky wool jumpers and folky Jacquard pieces, again showing us a mix of tribal inspiration and modernism.  A great pairing when done right, these designers have certainly nailed it.

As NY Fashion Week will come to a close on the 18th I am excited to see Jeremy Scott and Marc Jacobs who are up next to show us what they got! Bring on London Fashion Week.
