If you’re a fashion enthusiast and are looking for some of the standout looks spotted on the runways of New York Fashion Week / Fall 2018, you’ve come to the right place. We spotted old trends with quirky upgrades resurface and some new trends making a strong presence. From the many designers who showcased their collections, we picked 5 of our favourites. Here are some of their best looks…
Zimmermann
 

Zimmermann

The Australian luxury-fashion brand’s collection, ‘Unbridled,’ was a lesson in layering—there were plenty of trenches, bomber jackets and coats that were showcased. The colour palette stayed true to the aesthetic of fall colours—caramels, olive greens, tans, mustards and camels. Nicky Zimmerman described the colour palette as the “harmonious hue that almost made the collection look like it had one colour”. There were studded cowboy boots, belted saddle pouches, hats—all the elements that added to the free-spirited vibe of the collection.

What we love: An over-sized olive jacket layered on a white ruffle top.

Alexander Wang

Alexander Wang played majorly on the monochrome palette—some of the standout trends he showcased were matrix-inspired tiny cat-eye glasses, leather trenches, tights that read “CEO” etc. It was his signature style synced with a working, corporate girl vibe.

What we love: Kaia Gerber’s blazer dress

Ralph Lauren
 

Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren showcased his SS 2018 collection at New York Fashion Week—white and blue sundresses, vacation-ready accessories etc. were the highlights of his collection. It was inspired by Round Hill Hotel and Villas—the designer’s vacation home in Jamaica. The highlight of the collection was models walking barefoot on the runways.

What we love: The blue halter-neck slit dress

Oscar De La Renta

The collection was high on the colour factor—reds, mustards and more. There were solid oversized winter coats but what we loved was the focus on eveningwear—all of the gowns and dresses where more or less in the sheer meets embroidery meets tulle zone.

What we love: Tulle embroidery dress

Tom Ford
 

Tom Ford

Tom Ford’s ready-to-wear collection was a riot of colours—and not just colours—bright, contrasting acid colour hues mixed with clustered sequin work, rhinestones, animal prints, leather and much more. The collection was highly appreciated for its impeccable tailoring.

What we love: Animal printed puffer jackets
