New York Fashion Week has sadly come and gone, but it brought a number of bold and creative shows. From up and coming designers to brands who delivered yet again, we have rounded up the top 5 shows that grabbed our attention. 

 

Victor Li 

Victor Li’s Men’s and Women’s RTW FW21 collection was a modern take of western Americana. Inspired by a trip that Victor Li took to Wyoming, the collection features cowboy hats and bolo ties, mixing them up with bleached denim and bomber jackets. Think a streetwear version of Midnight Cowboy.

Maisie Wilen 

Parsons graduate and Yeezy protégé Maisie Wilens debuted her fourth collection this NYFW, presenting a bold psychedelic collection. Rife with 90’s nostalgia, her body-hugging pieces in trippy pastel-like colours are a big hit.

KA WA KEY 

KA WA KEY’s FW21 film ‘Through the Looking Glass’ was, although very ominous and haunting, filled with beautiful clothing! The collection featured a number of knitted garments in an array of colours. The attention to detail on the knitwear was on point and I’m here for the models wearing oversized scarves as makeshift hats.

Chelsea Grays 

Chelsea Gray’s collection titled ‘Homage to 2020’ was a reflection on the past year, one that was centred on the coronavirus, climate change and racial injustice. Shot in Paris, Grays has continued to redefine menswear with her loud prints, her bold cuts and her use of skirts.

Colin LoCasio 

Colin LoCasio launched his brand last autumn and we’ve been keeping tabs on him ever since. His FW21 collection ‘Made for the Cool Girl’ featured bright retro pieces including a poppy-printed parka and a ‘Freddy the frog’ jumper. The ‘granny gingham puffer coat’ with granny smith apple detailing is a vibe, to be honest.
