The 5 Best Things about New York Women Fashion Week FW15 Give me Five

Each Fashion Week is a battle.

The designers deploy their creations, unsheathe their talent and their courage and choose which god to ask for protection, in which pay homage. These are our winners NYFW just ended.

#1. Rodarte

Recreate the feeling of the birds that migrate, abandoning the city to more rural places.This moving picture that the Mulleavy sisters try to recreate the collection just presented in NY results in a shower of feathers, lace and sequins. On the catwalk look back the late '70s, those of the disc, those of a strong and seductive femininity. 

Rodarte leaves aside the quirky details, such as references to space or Star Wars previous collections, for a collection more urban, determined, but always personal.

#2. Tommy Hilfiger.

Tommy Hilfiger turns the New York Armory on Park Avenue in a football stadium. To celebrate 30 years of the designer back to 1970, a Love Story and declares his love to his starring Ali McGraw. Recreates the universe of American colleges, revisiting it with the codes and colors of the brand. Sports and luxury coexist in the bomber, in the fur, the poncho, in pleated miniskirts and varsity jackets.

#3. Proenza Schouler.

The new premises on the High Line's Whithney museum fills art signed by Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez. Abstract Expressionism of the fifties and sixties and the women in fur coats who attended the shows become fashion and dress in wool. Strips of cloth, knotting the seals are a collection of material, sophisticated, yet another confirmation of the talent of the duo Proenza Schouler.


While the eyes of the international fashion scene are all focused on Shayne Oliver, the promising talent continues his exploration of the concept of gender. This time his research between ambivalence and ambiguity becomes so much theatrical touch to the disturbing. Olivier creates its streetstyle staff, reinvents proportions, increasing the volume, multiply overlays.


"Renè did it first." Not only a designer, not just the winner of the Davis Cup, but a pioneer, so Felipe Oliveira Baptista describes the founder of the brand. To him and to the sport that he preferred, the courts, has dedicated the last collection.

From the archives Lacoste resurface the silhouette of the '30s and the colors of the' 70s giving balance to the contrasts, the tailoring, the lines, the fantasies. Each seems to look straight out from the "Royal Tenenbaums" Wes Andersen, making the collection a little gem of eccentricity.
