New York Fashion Week is fully underway, and that means that the city’s most fashionable denizens are bringing their A-game. Along with the expected hyped pieces from the likes of Balenciaga and Heron Preston, attendees relied heavily on bold patterns to add flair to lightweight summertime looks.
Stripes were perhaps the most popular detail, interpreted in every way from slim bi-color arrangements to the much-resold Nigerian soccer jersey, sporting jagged chevron linework. Lightweight Issey Miyake trousers and Helmut Lang jeans added visual interest to bolster graphic tees and hot weather layers, which ranged from leather vests to color-saturated jackets. Florals, clashing Prada designs and tie dye appeared elsewhere, along with the ubiquitous shoulder bags, made more dramatic by glistening jewelry — visitors selected shiny necklaces, oversized belt buckles and metal-rimmed glasses for maximum impact. Of course, plenty of high key sneakers appeared, with guests showing off box-fresh adidas Yung-1s, YEEZY Desert Rats, COMME des GARÇONS HOMME x Nike Air Max 180 and even a pair of BAPE STAs.
