Victoria Beckham dropped a few touches of futurism into her pre-tenth anniversary retrospective fashion show for Fall-Winter 2018/2019, presented at New York Fashion Week, moving on further from her usual minimalistic approach, which thankfully, hasn’t changed. The clean silhouettes walked down the runway looking like an ode to the khaki color, with splashes of blue and brown here and there. Animal print brings more diversity to the table, and yet sits so well with the rest of the collection, living proof of the powerful message coming from the shapes. Sophisticated cuts made clothes look stunning, despite their simplicity. As we know, Victoria has a passion for coats, this collection being no exception. The fabrics look heavy, not at all the fluffy sort of thing, yet very high end – the type of piece you can only find from a designer. Without a doubt, the creativity is there, exposed right under your glance.

German designer Paula Knorr used the same approach like most of the brands presenting at NYFW and sent down the runway minimalistic silhouettes which she styled mostly on the sides, keeping the fabric flat on the face and back. The fabrics are shiny, velvety and lacquered, painted in soft browns, red, blue and white. For an extra feel, the designer had the models wearing knee-high boots in matching fabrics.

Xiao Li had an adorable collection perfectly executed, with see-through fabrics shaped dolly like but in a nightgown manner and finished off in a modern kind of way. Puffy sleeves, gentle ruffles here and there, geometric flower embroidery at the hem, delicate stripes and soft unpretentious bows made this collection a total crush. Colors: baby pink, baby blue, red and white.

Speaking of crushes, Zimmermann had me completely melted and mesmerized with their fresh looking sophisticated collection. It reminds me of the aristocracy, just modernized and free of social norms. It looked summery with the flower prints and vintage hand embroidered tablecloth style embroidery arrangements. This collection is delicious but ladylike, with short skirts and white beautifully embellished shirts and jackets with pointed shoulders.

Fenty Puma left me with a good impression, even though we are talking about sportswear. The whole collection abounds in shades of green and blue, played on eye-catching sports clothes, ranging from bralettes to leather costumes.
