And so it be­gins. A whole month worth of fash­ion shows has kicked off in the Big Ap­ple, which is great news for your wardrobe. Why? Take a look…

Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK -

The Show: Tom­myxgigi

We can al­ways rely on Tommy Hilfiger to cre­ate a spec­ta­cle dur­ing NYFW but this sea­son, it was more epic than ever be­fore. In or­der to show­case his de­sign col­lab­o­ra­tion with none other than Gigi Ha­did, the Amer­i­can fash­ion le­gend con­structed his very own fair­ground on a pier near the Brook­lyn Bridge, com­plete with a 40ft big wheel, tat­too par­lours, lucky dips, dough­nut stalls and burger joints. Tay­lor Swift sat Frow-side, fully clad in the AW16 range, whoop­ing loudly as Gigi sashayed past. And the best news? You can shop it all right now! Yep, from the logo-em­bla­zoned vest tops to the iconic mil­i­tary jack­ets, Gigi’s wares are on sale as we speak. With 22.6 mil­lion fol­low­ers on In­sta­gram (and count­ing), that’s a lot of shop­pers to con­tend with. We sug­gest you hot­foot it over to Tommy Hilfiger im­me­di­ately.

The Cult Buy: Zara’s Trousers

Chances are, you’ve al­ready got these in your wardrobe. Which is ex­cel­lent, see­ing as we spied them on dozens of trend­set­ters skip­ping from show to show. And if you’re yet to add these to your sar­to­rial ar­se­nal fear not, be­cause they’re still avail­able. Team with tai­lor­ing to off-set the sporty vibe.

Take­away Trend: knit­ted Stripes

Well, if they’re good enough for VB, Al­tuzarra and Adam Lippes, then we’re sold. Get your run­way fix now, cour­tesy of Whistles’ midi dress.

VB’S High St Hit: The Per­son­alised Phone Case

as she emerged post-show, it wasn’t Vic­to­ria Beck­ham’s lat­est out­fit that had us talk­ing (it was taken from her SS17 col­lec­tion, in case you were in any doubt). nope, it was her mono­grammed phone case, which is ac­tu­ally from HB lon­don and will only set you back £34. Who knew? you can choose be­tween plain, mar­bled or pat­terned back­grounds and have up to two ini­tials. Win­ner.

The In­sta Hit:

Kate Spade NY’S Shoes

The Styling Trick: The Shir­dot

One part shirt, one part Bar­dot top (of sorts), the cat­walks were awash with this new geo­met­ric neck­line. Clas­sic white shirts were worn un­but­toned and pulled over one shoul­der, mak­ing for an easy up­date on our tai­lor­ing. Try with high­waisted trousers and pleated midis to be next sea­son right now.

Tay­lor, Martha Hunt and Lewis Hamil­ton were FROW for Gigi
