The New York Life: BEST OF NEW YORK Fashion Week Spring Summer 2015
One of the world's greatest fashion capitals, New York celebrated its spring/summer 2015 fashion week with eight days of vivid and dynamic presentations, with Fashion One on hand to investigate some of the most outstanding collections. Jason Wu presented his second womenswear collection for Hugo Boss in the World Trade Center’s 4th Tower high on the 54th floor. Poignantly held on the evening of the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the setting showcased the stunning aerial views of New York, perfectly matched to his precise, sharp silhouettes.
One of the storytellers of fashion and a master of creating environments, Thom Browne presented a rich and quirky show at the Center 548, combining a mutant Alice in Wonderland atmosphere and warped fairy tale references into a detailed dynamic presentation that wowed audiences. Alexander Wang sent a tribe of urban warriors, in brightly colored sleek body-con dresses, painted on pants and spiky stilettos and sneakers down the runway, effortlessly channeling a hard edged futurist sportswear aesthetic. Marc Jacobs’ collection of sexy urban military wear was as sure handed and ever, with buyers particularly lusting after the luxury sliders that look set to become the footwear of choice of the season. Provocateur Jeremy Scott, who recruited American celebrity and popstar Miley Cyrus to design his accessories, released a collection that took 1960s bohemian elements and injected them with modern chemical pop, resulting in a collection that was all eye-bleeding bright colors and dramatic combinations with fractal style tie dyed prints cast in fluorescent colorways, his appropriation of the the Shrek character, and his ubiquitous flamboyant Adidas collaborative footwear.
