Best of NYFW

New York Fashion Week is over and it's on to London.  Here are my top collections from NYFW:

Prabal Gurung
I'm a huge sucker for thick, chunky knits and Prabal Gurung doesn't disappoint. After experiencing the polar vortex with all its might, warm sweaters along with ankle grazing coats are definitely on my shopping list for next the fall/winter season (all the while praying it won't be as cold next year).  However, for the start of fall, I'm so excited for flowy fabrics, ankle length trousers and gorgeous wrap tops and blazers. Gurung seriously mastered the cozy, chic and sexy look. This collection is what dreams are made of. 

 Narciso Rodriguez
The first thing about this collection that caught my eye were the shoes. The shape and silhouette are fantastic and the nude pair on the left are so dreamy! I'm loving the trousers that are a slim fit but not tight and extra long so that they give the illusion of the leg being longer than they are! I definitely don't want to leave out another aspect of the collection that brings it all together, which is the colour palette. The metals and neutrals are totally gorgeous and I love the linear theme of the collection. Truly perfection!

Theory
Well, if you haven't heard by now, Theyskens' Theory is no more.  But fear not. Oliver Theyskens has been the artistic director over the entire Theory brand and the consolidation of Theyskens' Theory into Theory has produced some major results. With this collection, we can see the classic look of Theory injected with bits of personality Theyskens' Theory is known for. Theory has been known for great basics, and Theyskens has still managed to capture that aesthetic while simultaneously adding a bit more personality into the clothes. I love the flutter and textures of the fabrics and the richness of the colours that make this collection anything but basic.
