NYFW: Textural Touches

2.24.2016


A little reminder that a bit of texture goes a long way.


Shag coat c/o Willow and Clay, American Apparel choker top, Mango wide leg pants, Stag bag c/o Etienne Aigner (similar here), Vince Camuto wedge boots. Shot by Isaac Lacey.


A few years ago I was all about patterns. I loved mixing and matching them and enjoyed the dense, layered looks they could create together. I still like to mix stripes, florals, polka dots, you name it, but I've definitely started to slow down on buying prints in lieu of my new obsession: texture. Whether it's a shaggy faux fur, a super-soft knit, or a studded jacket or lace-up pant, think of texture as an easy way to intrigue and depth to literally ANY look. Don't believe me? See exhibit A above...

Still need convincing? Check out the snaps below from my last round of #NYFW shows including Rebecca Minkoff, HervĂ© Leger, Naeem Kahn and Libertine. Though pattern definitely played a part in some of them, it's the textures to me that truly stood out. 

Hope you've enjoyed my snaps from fashion week as much as I've enjoyed sharing them! Kind of sad to leave the runways and get back to reality, but ultimately c'est la vie!

From top to bottom:
1. & 2. Fringe, ruffles and tweed added depth to some of Rebecca Minkoff's clean, all-white looks at her first #SeeBuyWear show. // 3. Fur, studded tights, fringed booties! Libertine didn't shy away from mixing textures (or much, really) on the runway. // 4. Even the hairstyles at Libertine mixed different textural elements into them. // 5. Herve Leger added depth to their usual bandage dresses by way of studs, fringe and elaborate draping. // 6. & 7. Brocade, metallic accents and fringe gave a nod to the roaring 20's and art deco influences on the decadent runway of Naeem Kahn.
