Asym­me­try, Re­vis­ited Tai­lor­ing and Colour Splash Take Over New York for Spring 2019

New York, be­ing one of the trendi­est fash­ion cap­i­tals of the world, kicks off the ma­jor league of in­ter­na­tional fash­ion weeks on a bian­nual ba­sis. It dic­tates the leaflets of the look books and trend cat­a­logues for the com­ing sea­son and in­tro­duces a plethora of de­sign tal­ent, whether old or new, to show­case path-break­ing cre­ations and looks. This year, the NYC run­ways saw re­vis­ited suit­ing, power of asym­me­try and an ex­plo­sion of colours for the com­ing sea­son. Here is our ver­dict on trend trail­blaz­ers for New York Fash­ion Week Spring 2019.

For the Spring/Sum­mer 2019 sea­son, NYFW of­fered a creative ex­plo­ration of sil­hou­ettes and forms sat­u­rated in deep and vi­brant hues. De­sign­ers such as Marc Jacobs, with his dra­matic candy sor­bet fi­esta; Chris­tian Cowan, with his ex­em­pli­fied sil­hou­ettes and flirty play of sheer; Ralph Lau­ren, with his be­spoke sports­wear drip­ping in Amer­i­can her­itage and cul­ture; Kerby Jean-Ray­mond of Pyer Moss, with his unique sil­hou­ettes and black cel­e­bra­tory prints and fi­nally, Anna Sui, with her chic yet breezy prints ex­trav­a­ganza, are a few names to be kept on the radar for the up­com­ing sea­son.

In the emerg­ing tal­ent space, CFDA's 2017 In­au­gu­ral Fash­ion Fu­ture Grad­u­ate Show­case saw three de­sign­ers – menswear de­sign­ers Ja­mall Oster­holm and Daniel Cloke, and tex­tile de­signer Ji Won Choi – present their de­but col­lec­tions on the New York run­ways. Ja­mall show­cased the ef­fec­tive use of plas­tic as two of the looks from the de­signer’s 6-piece col­lec­tion in­cor­po­rated the use of bot­tles to cre­ate en­gi­neered body suits, whilst Ji Won tapped into his Korean her­itage to de­pict a bal­anced col­lec­tion evoca­tive of Korean and Amer­i­can cul­ture. Daniel used the plat­form to show­case in­no­va­tion in the field of dye­ing and fab­rics, which he had spent the en­tire of last year ex­plor­ing.

Trends-wise, NYFW saw a flir­ta­tious play on the lines of sym­me­try, a come­back of vin­tage trends such as fringes, and the fil­ing away of cer­tain trends from their con­ven­tional at­tributes such as tai­lor­ing. The trend has been re­vamped for the up­com­ing sum­mer sea­son as more fash­ion for­ward. Prints-wise, the time­less flo­rals took a moody turn to­wards deep and bold tones, usu­ally re­served for Fall… Per­haps an­other nod to­wards the tran­si­tional na­ture of sea­sons?

Here is our edit of the trends in­tended to af­fect the fu­ture of fash­ion for the up­com­ing Spring/Sum­mer 2019 sea­son…
