New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer ’16 has started, showing the best the U.S. has to offer. As always, the designers have excelled themselves, but these are a few that really stood out to us so far.
Marissa Webb is known for mixing things up in her collections, contrasting styles and colours and creating a mixture of masculine and feminine styles. For SS16, Webb was inspired by photographs of her grandparents in the 1950s, wearing military uniforms and feminine dresses. This collection mixes those two elements, with khaki military-inspired jackets worn on top floaty floral dresses, tailored suits in saccharine sweet lilac, and mash-ups of leather, lace and plaid.
Rebecca Minkoff’s SS16 collection showed us the ‘70s is very much a big trend yet again next season. For this collection, Minkoff took inspiration from iconic singer/songwriter Marianne Faithfull, incorporating both her sweet and rebellious nature; think plunging sheer white mini dresses with caged heels, floaty printed maxi dresses and lace-skirted dresses with contrasting leather tops. As for the bags, Minkoff kept to her classic shapes, adding fringing and slouchy ‘70s shapes.

The circus was a distinct reference to M Missoni’s SS16 collection. Trapeze artists and performing lions adorned pyjama-style shorts and shirts sets, dresses and platform heels, while its signature knitwear was updated into ‘70s-inspired striped jumpsuits reminiscent of a bold circus tent. The bags played on this theme but in a slightly more subtle way; small a boxy, they were created in colourful suede and cut-out prints. Shop the latest M Missoni collection on MyBag.
