5 Things We’ve Already Learned From NYFW

September 3, 2014

And we’re just scraping the surface of day zero

5-things-fashion-week

The first day of New York Fashion Week has barely happened, but there’s already lots to learn. This next month is going to feel like running a marathon (in heels — or not), so let’s get a head start by looking at what’s already out there. It’s not cheating if everybody wins.

1. Eyesight Is Out

We already know that the bucket hat is back in a big way, but if you’re going to REALLY embrace this trend, sacrifices will have to be made. For Band of Outsiders, this means your eyesight. And as the Margiela diet proved, sartorial is blindness not as easy as it looks, pun intended.

2. Early Retirement Is In

We should have seen this coming with the rise of Birkenstocks, but old age swag has never looked so good. Duckie Brown’s collection makes us want to book a one-way flight to Boca Raton for a post-fashion week retirement.

3. Gary Graham Is a Football Fan

If you can peel your eyes away from the clothes for one second, lookbooks can be like a game of I SPY. In Gary Graham’s lookbook, I spy with my little eye a New York Giants bumper sticker.

4. Sneakers Can Be Weapons Too

Stilettos have already proven themselves to be the best self-defense weapon, but these new sneakers from Valentino work too if you’re on the move and feel the need to threaten someone with your footwear.

5. Fringe Dances Even When You Aren’t 

There appears to be some paranormal activity happening with Sachin & Babi’s fringe pieces. This model doesn’t even look like she’s breathing, and yet her shirt has got some serious dance moves.

    Retirement fashion….hmmm. Not feeling it!

    • MippysMom

      only if you clearly are not near retirement age. Otherwise, it looks as if you’re on your way to the nursing home.

    I am not so keen on retirement fashion and huge hats. Let’s see what else will NYFW bring;-)

    You know I looove wearing anything that’s even slightly oversized but a hat just won’t do. Everytime I wear even a small hat I feel like I have huge nest on head with baby birds in it and I must be super carefull not to kill them all. Same thing with beanies in the winter. I just can’t do it.

    Colors are looking pretty muted for a spring/summer season

    Who needs their vision anyway, right? Bring on the hats.

    “Eye sight is out” – so real. Can someone demonstrate a real use of bucket hats though? I just feel like they were over before they started.

    Warm Regards,

      Do you put the bagels in the backpacks?

  • Jilli Joffe

    I just published a trend report on the ‘cold shoulder,’ so I’m happy to see that NYFW is supporting this trend (at least the Gary Graham and Litke presentations had off shoulder pieces – and since it’s only the first day, I’m sure more designers are still to follow ). But while I’ll happily expose my shoulders in the spirit of being on trend, giving up my eyesight… not so much. May have to leave the oversized witchy bucket hat to the runways!

    I wore a denim bucket hat with a huge faux rose in a portrait when I was six, and I’m STILL regretting it–send bucket hats back to hell where they belong.

    The only one of these I can really get behind is fringe.

    Yep, all 5 looks will suceed in repelling men.
