NYFW Runway Report: DKNY, Coach and Jill Stuart

Public School designers Dao–Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne since taking over DKNY's creative helm have presented designs where aspirational meets the practical, resulting in this NYFW futuristic collection called Neo Soho. The sophisticated, clean range is redefined for the millennial wardrobe by the designers placing an emphasis on femininity, highlighting the waist and revealing the body via transparency. The effect yields a contemporary, urban, free–spirited sexiness. The collection’s use of color is energetic, confident, and unexpected while accessories build the narrative of fashion athletic punctuating a streamlined head–to–toe look.

Coach's Stuart Vevers is still going for gold each season with his Spring 2017 collection not disappointing. Taking us on a journey through Americana and the 1970s, the edgy rock 'n' roll designs give Coach a fresh new covetable style for this generation. Striding in relevance and bursting in creativity, Vevers zeroed in on presenting leather jackets, feminine dresses, prairie skirts and twilly scarves as must-have wardrobe staples with a twist. From Elvis the King himself, lace, frills, padlocks, fringing, patches and studs the embellishments just completed the collection...it's clear to say Coach really just keeps on winning.

In a crisp white room on the water downtown with sunlight streaming in, very Manhattan. So was the setting for Jill Stuart's latest designs debut. Her Spring 2017 runway was inspired by performer and dancer Loie Fuller, a Serpentine dancer. Thus all about movement and an air of modern elegance, the collection is full of beautiful floral prints, flowing silks and light chiffons. Layered styling was key, Jill created perfect separates that are easy to wear and made for the everyday. It was most definitely a collection for the now!
