New York Fashion Week Leggings

Between past and future, on the first day of fashion shows at New York Fashion Week FW 2016-2017 expresses the restyling of the demonstration process with collections that combine tradition and innovation. With parades in the Big Apple, officially debuted the month of fashion weeks dedicated to women ‘2016-2017 autumn-winter.

The New York Fashion Week introduces leggings being restyled, suspended between past and future, in search of a new dimension of fashion and the way of making fashion (and especially to sell it), bringing with her ​​curiosity and expectations about what will happen.

And judging from the first collections, experimental and innovative, but also attentive to the tradition understood as a general “style” and “special” of the individual house, the idea is that change will happen, yes, but it will be gradual, without jolts and with some inevitable back…

Elegance unconventional

Christopher and Nicholas Kunz Nicholas K. are a fixture at New York Fashion Week. Their figure is a creative approach and admittedly not “canon” fashionable, pointing to contamination between genres, different styles and eras to build collections characterized by an ‘unconventional elegance, but at the same time reassuring. For the 2016-2017 autumn-winter, so here it is that the woman is transformed into a sort of sophisticated warrior ninja ’30s, with oriental references to clothing and airmen, where the protagonists are luxurious leggings, relaxed silhouette, overlays and maxi-jackets. The only flaw, a certain “excess” that is likely to make caricaturist otherwise look beautiful to look at and practical to wear.

An approach shared by Max and Lubov Azria for BCBG Max Azria. Also in this case the prerequisite is a willingness to experiment without “trauma”, with an eye on tradition and one innovation, but the result is less convincing than that of Kunz brothers. The two French designers fact of Tunisian origin, leave that heritage has the upper hand on creativity, finishing with proposing a collection that revisits their style, without making anything new.The bias cuts, the contrasting volumes, the sharp edges and lurex-skin contrast there will still renew the enthusiasm of more customers and win new ones with their measured eccentricity.

Much more traditional, but still pervaded by an experimental and unconventional inspiration, it is the proposal of FW 2016-2017 Marissa Webb. His sophisticated garments, minimal in form, materials, colors and prints, but not at all severe or boring but clearly meant to be worn with pleasure and without fear. The point of strength of the collection is the lightweight leggings and the use of a natural color palette, relaxed and versatile, while the leather leggings and-again-a certain complacency in the juxtaposition of jackets, sweaters, tops and accessories remove freshness and beauty to the overall result.

Melting pot culturale

Between the parades of the first day of New York Fashion Week FW 2016, to Desigual and Yeezy Season 3, the line of clothing and accessories Kanye West, were undoubtedly the most anticipated.

Perfectly aligned with the mood of renewal of the fashion shows in the Big Apple, the Spanish brand has “sowed the seeds” of what looks like a significant stylistic maturation. Maintaining the unmistakable fact multicolor figure and carefree, it included in its color palette shades like burgundy, burgundy and black and made ​​great use of indigo denim to build a collection that pays tribute to fashion traditions from all over the world in a cultural melting pot that is a veritable ode to diversity as richness.

A further step in the transformation of NYFW process was accomplished by with his Emily leggings and wearings tip. In the setting of Madison Square Garden, “the King of New York” has overcome the physical and conceptual limits of the parade to propose an event multilevel, with the simultaneous presentation of his new album,  the Life of Pablo , the sale on site of some pieces of the collection, the fashion industry celebration with the presence of top of Naomi Campbell, and-ultimately-of himself. A bombastic show where missing in the end is the substance of Yeezy Season 3, again an unspecified mixture of oversize sweaters, sweatshirts and used effect trousers and jackets mood pretentiously sporty-chic, always very (too) the same as if the same and many other things.
