Bright whites and dark hues dominated the New York Fashion Week runway on Tuesday. Contrasting designs by Oscar de la Renta, Proenza Schouler, Lela Rose and Zimmermann were some noticeable impressions.
Oscar de la Renta designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia debuted the Fall/Winter collection aside their own growing label, Monse. The de La Renta collection featured bold monochromatic pieces, classic silhouettes and traditional cigarette pants.
The Lela Rose collection aired a sense of "lightness" with pastel hues, feminine silhouettes and her signature floral prints.
The Proenza Schouler collection featured cut-out dresses layered with leather, chiffon and knit fabrics. The brand showed a sophisticated edge through leather D-ring belts, fur-lined overcoats and the pairings of graffiti-printed tees with classic ankle-length pleated skirts.
Designer of Zimmermann, Nicky Zimmermann, discovered vintage photographs of female university students playing cricket after the World War I era and was inspired by the strength and delicacy of women in the 1920's. Drawing from that inspiration Zimmermann's collection showcased oversized pinstripe suits, lace flounced dresses and tall leather boots.
