NYFW | Autumn Winter 17 | Day 1
| Cynthia Rowley |
Cynthia Rowley opened their doors to her cozy showroom in the West Village to present her fall collection. Ultra feminine elements were combined with more sporty, tomboy accents that added a cool, urban touch to the collection's girly attitude. The electric, versatile lineup also included pieces with the seventies vibe, like the sequined flared pants, embroidered mesh frocks as well as a micro-floral corduroy blazer and flared trousers. Other looks paid tribute to sleek nineties minimalism, such as a cropped, long-sleeve, stretch-satin top with matching pants.
| Kendall & Kylie |
The sisters duo Kendall and Kylie Jenner couldn't be present for a personal walk through of their fall collection of their own brand in Manhattan. But the Jenner sisters wanted to invoke Nineties throwbacks and elevate modern streetwear: "The girls love having great basics with novelty twists, and everything here works with the statement pieces in their wardrobe."
Overall the lineup reads more sporty than grunge, with whiffs of urban athleticism throughout.
| Tadashi Shoji |
Tadashi Shoji included some lovely exits for fall. The most notable examples were a rose-embroidered black velvet gown with draped, off-the-shoulder sleeves. But these few looks were just not reason enough for a formal show full of looks that were wearable enough, but dated by their details and contained too many lackluster shapes.
| La Perla |
La Perla used it's runway to prove that femininity and feminism aren't mutually exclusive. Slip dresses were worn alone as overwear instead of underwear; bustiers were incorporated into dresses; and cleanly tailored pantsuits made the more powerful statement on stage.
