Plus other highlights from day seven, including Proenza Schouler, Boss by Jason Wu and Anna Sui.
Michael Kors presented a strong and wearable collection perfect for a sunny summer’s day in the city, complete with delicate floral embroideries and smiling sun-kissed girls. Key skirt shapes were full a-line shin skimmers, a silhouette emerging as a key New York trend, teamed with smart shirts worn casually unbuttoned under neat trans-seasonal jackets.
Jason Wu continued to steer Hugo Boss’s Boss label towards a smarter, cleaner and simpler silhouette, with an approachable take on minimalist dressing. Again, simple smart shirts tucked into long mid-length skirts stood out, while shorter figure-hugging dresses were overlaid with semi sheer skirt layers.
Proenza Schouler focused on everyday wardrobe staples but tweaked them in their own unique way, wrapping Prince of Wales checked coats with shiny leather panels, elevating T-shirts with slices of python and snipping out sections of Argyle jumpers. This was a much more wearable collection than previous seasons, but was revved up thanks to design duo’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez’s fabric fascination.
There was another trip down memory lane at Anna Sui, who took over from Tommy Hilfiger’s retro music festival inspired show with another vintage trip. Sui’s was a mix of psychedelic hippies and swinging 60s stars given a rock and roll edge, with loose and layered printed chiffon maxi dresses and oversized knits covered in a trippy take on art nouveau florals.
