ANNA SUI SS15: Similar to many of the other SS15 shows we have seen this season in NY, Anna Sui had a 60′s psycadelic vibe going on. The collection’s style reflected London in its most fruitful late-60′s flowering, arts nouveau and deco, and hippie, glam. The collection consisted of flared orange suits, Lepord print ankle boots, & rainbow beenie hats (how Jimmy Hendricks), it seems Sui had Kosmik Rock Star on the mind when designing this collection.
Accessories were a big theme: oversized sunglasses, long dangling star necklaces, & scarfes knotted around the neck. Hair was typical 60s behive (backcombed to buggery) & flicked out to the side, makeup was heavy with metallic silver eyeshadow splashed across the eyes.

Julia Nobis stars in the Louis Vuitton ‘A Celebration of Monogram’ campaign. The collection is a collaboration of six Iconic designers: Christian Louboutin, Frank Gehry, Marc Newson, Rei Kawakubo, Cindy Sherman & Karl Lagerfeld for Louis Vuitton. The collection includes a series of louis vuitton luggage with unique features such as colour-fur trims on backpacks & gold studs along bags.
The Latex leggings, Polka Dots skirts and tiny bandeau tops certainly gave an edgy east-end vibe to this season’s Marc by Marc Jacobs. The hair was pulled up and twisted into a knot ontop of the girls heads, and thick, dark, straight eyebrows were the focus of the makeup. The colour pallet was young & fun, ranging from bright pink suits to brights yellow polka dot jackets. The whole vibe of the show was young, fun & edgy, certainly wareable for young festival go-ers.
THE ROW SS15: The Row, The Olsen Twins: both illusive, elegant & understated, so why would we expect any less for their latest collection? Set in a bare warehouse in Soho, it seems the designer duo have let the beautiful ‘Raw-Silk’ collection do the talking, there was an undeniable purity to this collection, with its mid-calf hemlines, full A-line silhouettes, and covered-up arms and shoulders.
The Olsen’s experimented with wrapping in this collection more so than last seasons. Long swaths of fabric crisscrossed the torso, twisted around the waistline of dresses, and trailed down the legs. This collection was not designed to seduce, but they were beguiling nonetheless. A woven tabard finished with braided fringe was especially lovely; not many other labels in New York are turning out this level of handy-work, The Olsen’s really are quite astonishingly good at what they do. The hair was blow-dried to perfection and left hanging in a middle part- almost looking like silk, makeup was a dewy foundation with contouring & matte brown, earthly toned eye-shadow was sweeped elegantly across the lid. Well done MK & A once again you amaze us.
TOMMY HILFIGER SS15: Started off with a bang! (literally) with a live band of long-haired hippy drummers playing The Beatles, and a runway made of grass, sprinkled with flowers; the swinging 60′s atmosphere was magical. The runway looked like a Glastonbury tribute and the collection certainly reflected this cool edgy vibe. From over-sized colorful cardigans & sweaters with flat ankle boots, to leather mini’s with sailor hats, the collection was very casual rock chick with sex appeal (actually wearable for the everyday teen). The Hair was straight and hung down over the models shoulders whilst the makeup was heavy black liner with fake flower tattoos on he face & body!
