See our a few of our favorite collections from New York Fashion Week 2014, and get the Burda patterns to try the trends at home!
New York fashion week is over for another season, and we’re flipping through runway shots for inspiration.
We can’t have a fashion week without Michael Kors. His Fall 2014 collection built on the romantic vacation styles he showed on the spring runways. We love mixing tweedy fabrics and denim with lush textures like washed silk.
Take this school marm high waisted A line skirt topped with a luxe fur. We’d use faux for our own version, of course. We also loved masculine, loosely cut shirts unbuttoned for plunging necklines.
To get the Michael Kors look, start with the Button Tab Trousers or Gathered Full Skirt with the Cropped Split Neck Blouse in bright white and the draft-it-yourself Faux Fur Wrap. We also like the Buttoned A-Line Skirt in khaki or denim and the crisp white Blouse with Pockets.
For a collection with more drama, look no further than Anna Sui. The adventurous designer’s major inspirations for the season were Art Deco, 1920s Chinese actress Anna Mae Wong and chinoiserie style, and Angelica Huston. One thing they have in common? Pure, dark glamour. Think patterned silks with pops of fur and tweed.
For minimalists, the Narcisco Rodriguez runway was (as always) a dream come true. Structure and shape were key, like this beautifully cut top with a subtle play on the peplum shape.
Look for details sewers appreciate, like a bright contrasting satin lining a simple coat… that’s a couture detail you can make at home! Theory also showed a restrained collection of cool greys and sheer black dresses.
Get coolly classic looks like these with the Cap Sleeve Top and Sheer Overlay Skirt or the Layered Jersey Dress. Patterns like the Square Neck Top, Ruffle Coat and Linen Pants have shape and structure.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have Libertine. Libertine’s collection as a whole was a lot to take in, but the crazy fringe, screen printing, and folksy embellishments offered up tons of inspiration for personalizing your wardrobe.
Of course, these are just a few of the looks spotted last week. Any favorites you’re pinning to those inspiration boards?
