A New York Minute: The Best of New York Fashion Week FW15


In a collection inspired by 'New York Heroines' (think: Diane Keaton, Mia Farrow) Derek Lam brought us a beautifully autumnal palette, plenty of 70s notes and a nod to American sportswear for FW15.  Trenches, pea-coats, which, if you love these pictures you will adore some of our forthcoming Carin Wester offerings for fall - gorgeous tweed wool suits and trousers were presented in rich browns, soft grey, navy and beige.

Thick wool coats and high turtleneck sweaters are just what we like to see to keep the cold at bay. Prabal Gurung's collection was a cosy offering of heavy winter fabrics; knits, stiff leather and fur.  Layering came in abundance, just what we are Shop Pyramid feel makes a perfect winter outfit. Under the fur-lined coats were soft-as-silk slip dresses with lace and mesh inserts, proving that winter dressing can be both warm and sexy. 

Style.com reviewed this collection as 'clothes for women with their feet on the ground and their heads in the sky', observing Rodebjer's kaleidoscope long, floaty dresses and floral silk skirts, referencing the work of artists Del Pozo and Klarwein.

Rodebjer have a beautiful way of presenting high fashion with a relaxed, accessible vibe - akin to the goals of our Creative Director here at Shop Pyramid.  In this FW15 collection we saw some heavenly textures; silk, velvet, and embroidered mesh.  The outerwear was undoubtedly the star here: shiny black trenches and faux fur coats, with lots of layering potential within the collection.

The Mulleavy sisters behind Rodarte always do a great job of keeping their brand very 'Rodarte-ish' no matter what any other designer is doing season after season.  With their inspirations stemming to anything from California's Death Valley to childhood memories, Kate and Laura propel Rodarte to new heights each collection.

Whilst many other designers referenced the 70s for fall, there was not a flare in sight along the runway, instead we had skin tight, long and lean pants, and plenty of embellishments by way of feathers, sequins and eyelash lace trimmings. Disco was the word of the day, shown no better than in the catwalk finale of rainbow-bright dresses.  Lots of hedonistic glam to remind us not to be afraid of colour and perhaps, dancing :)

The cosiest of all collections at New York Fashion Week came to us from Tibi.  A perfectly executed collection of culottes, wrap suede skirts (we have some amazing suede styles coming to the site later this year!) shearling coats and sweaters to snuggle up in.  Created with the minimal dresser in mind, Amy Smilovic has designed a comfortable collection of mix and match pieces for winter in the same way that at Shop Pyramid we aim to provide you with plenty of styles to create the perfect winter wardrobe.  

Stay tuned to The Peak to see more of our Fall / Winter styles as the year moves on.
