These are the shows and details from the New York Spring/Summer 2018 collections that I enjoyed. I mainly review them from a personal perspective, in terms of – is this my taste – which won’t be the same as everyones. A colour I’ve been picking up on is lilac. I would always say when asked, that purple is my least favourite colour. Closely followed by teal, turquoise and aqua. However, lilac I do like and I think of Versace. I haven’t featured much lilac in these following images but I think it could be big for spring. But then again when aren’t pastels popular?
Warhol screenprints, sheer dresses and cheerleader poms. A Sterling Ruby designed ceiling with axes and Americana. Varsity shirts, shiny raincoats and gloves.
Coloured semi transparent skirts with long plaid shirts tucked in. Pastel hues and a silk ruffle collar blouse.
Floral rompers and short dresses. White trainers, puff sleeves and asymmetric earrings. Golden tans and wicker waist bags.
Creatures of Comfort
Summer holiday clothes. Fresh gingham and loose layers. Cotton shirts and dresses in longer lengths.
Delicate organza floral prints, silk ruffles. Light pink and yellow. Reflective floor and skin.
Glitter, embellishments, lace layering. Silk slip dresses and Keith Haring designs.
Rodarte (shown in Paris in July)
Extreme lace ruffles, polka dots. Large earrings with bows and rosettes.
Fresh fallen leaves on the runway. Small floral prints reminiscent of wallpaper and cotton bedding. Light prairie dresses with ruffles.
