I have to say, I’m not all too surprised by this trend. Puffed shoulders are ~a look~, but with fashion icons like Danielle Bernstein rocking some serious puffs on the reg, they’ve become much less matronly!

Someone call the 101 dalmatians, their dots have been stolen by a bunch of NYFW designers! (I couldn’t resist, I’m so sorry for the cringing I may have just induced). Nevertheless, I’m excited about this one! As a fan of a good polka dot print, I was delighted to see shows like Michael Kors Collection, Carolina Herrera, Marc Jacobs, and Tory Burch all featuring eye-popping polka dots.
One thing I love about fashion is that it’s not just about frivolous fabrics and accessories. What we wear reflects the zeitgeist of the world we live in (yup, I did indeed pull out an SAT word 😉). During this NYFW there was a note of America-in-mind design that seemed to underscore feelings about the state of our country. This Americana theme was prevalent in shows like the Michael Kors Collection, which was chock full of red white and blue and even featured some star-spangled designs. Jonathan Cohen echoed a similar patriotic sentiment, and Pyer Moss was a bit more abrasive with his “vote or die” tank. Prabal Gurung also included splashes of red white and blue throughout his collection, but adorned each model with a sash that read, “Who gets to be American?” during the finale of the show. Heavy stuff, right? Who said fashion was all fluff?!
Stay tuned next week to see how we, over here at Anjé, celebrated NYFW! And keep your eyes peeled as London, Milan, and Paris have their fashion weeks...New York was only the appetizer 😉.
