6 Ways To Shop… NEW YORK COOL, NOW!
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…
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.
