  • Sol Rivero

To conclude our coverage of the New York Fashion Week before we turn our eyes towards London, we bring you the last trends from the F/W 2014 collections presented on days 5-8.

You can check out our previous report from days 1-4, and see our favorite outfits at our Pinterest boards.


New York Fashion Week F/W 2014 – Trend #5: Geometric shapes

Perhaps as a remnant of the Art Deco trend that was everywhere last year, 2014’s Fall/Winter collections of the New York Fashion Week have also shown many geometric patterns and cut-outs, and even full gowns with geo motifs and details, creating beautiful and interesting silhouettes for the cold season.

Some of the other patterns which filled the runways were the usual floral prints and embroidery, as well as splashes of animal-print, stars, plaid, Asian motifs, and patterns inspired by contemporary art.  



New York Fashion Week F/W 2014 – Trend #4: 70’s and Noir

Vintage is always in, in fashion, and for this year’s Fall/Winter collections some of the designers were looking at the 60’s and 70’s for inspiration, with their colorful, psychedelic, oversized and loose outfits: large blouses, skirts, coats, and an overall bohemian look, will be definitely in for this year’s Fall/Winter season.

Others have opted for a more glamorous approach, creating mysterious, sensual gowns and outfits which would fit perfectly in a Noir film. Old-Hollywood silhouettes, capes and dark hues, are amongst the favorites for a stylish vintage look.      



New York Fashion Week F/W 2014 – Trend #3: Long pendants

During days 5 to 8 of the New York Fashion Week, we saw many metallic bracelets and cuffs, but also large necklaces with chains, beads and colorful gemstones. Some of the other great accessories we saw at the runways were large rings with animal shapes, large hoop earrings, colorful bracelets, chokers and collars with floral motifs, large drop earrings, eye-catching belts, and silver brooches.   



New York Fashion Week F/W 2014 – Trend #2: Metallic shades

As we mentioned in our previous report, neon and bright colors have been the trendy hues of the Fall/Winter 2014 collections, as designers turn the cold months into a flirty and fun season. However, during days 5 to 8 we saw the return of the metallic trend, with sequined outfits in green or purple, as well as the favorites: silver and gold, whether as details or full gowns.

A more subtle approach was seen through gowns with shiny satin and silk, as well as bright and colorful embroidery and metallic accessories.



New York Fashion Week F/W 2014 – Trend #1: Oversized knitting

The Fall/Winter 2014 collections presented at the New York Fashion Week betted on warm and comfortable outfits to face the cold months. Multiple layers of voluminous knitted coats, tops, skirts, dresses and scarves, with different patterns and colors, were the main protagonists of the New York Fashion Week runways.

For those who prefer to stay away from the –sometimes- itchy fabrics, designers also presented large jackets, coats and sweaters in softer materials, such as velvet; as well as studded blazers, colorful leggings, full faux-leather outfits and voluminous wraps.
