Fashion and Style combined with Polyvore sets
The inaugural week, well what I call the inaugural week, of NYFW has officially started, whereas the show will officially start next week. It’s rather strange, but at the same time, it’s still taking a while to get used to. One presentation I was surprised to see was the unveiling of Juicy Couture’s latest collection. This season, from what I heard, could be a game changer by means of what it is they’re featuring in their line besides the ubiquitous lounge wear.
Jam packed with a color palette of royal blue, black, navy blue, red, white, red-orange, pastel peach, coral, pink, royal purple, hot pink, neon pink, beige, aqua, teal, turquoise blue, cornflower blue, and silver, it was clear that the wait was well-worth it. Models wore thigh-high stockings in some looks that were paired with short-shorts, miniskirts, mini-dresses, etc., that were paired well. The prints chosen, which was something that I’m really not that accustomed to when I think of Juicy Couture, did come as a surprise to me. The use of animal prints, floral prints, and abstract prints, actually proved to be a welcome change for the brand. Puffed vests were dominant in the collection, but variety would be the thing that broke the monotony that often comes with different looks that featured the same piece. Loungewear was included in the collection, however, there was one difference. That difference was in the fabric used, instead of the well-known velour, cashmere was used. Drawstring pants and crop tops were used in some looks, there were looks that featured a model sporting pointy-toed heels.
Furthermore, I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if pointy-toed flats, heels, and boots end up making a comeback. Athletic and leisure have made a comeback in this collection, however, it was tempered with some more girly, free-spirited elements seen in some looks.
Overall, I loved the collection, and it appears that the 1990s inspired take on the 1960s is making a comeback in this collection. Only time will tell if this is a trend that takes off.
