Tom Ford kicked off New York Fashion Week in the most unusual manner.
Instead of presenting next season’s fashion like other designers, he showed off an Autumn-Winter collection that hit the shelves the very next day.
Ford played around with textures, using sequins, wools, leather and mock furs in a muted, autumnal colour palette, with a dominance of browns, burnt oranges, grays and blacks.
Much of the collection was practical, with heavy coats perfect for colder weather, and thick set boots.
A new collection isn’t all Tom Ford is staging this September.
His second feature film, ‘Nocturnal Animals’, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams opened at the Venice Film Festival last week, where it garnered rave reviews, emerging as a possible Oscar contender.
Nicholas K played with desert colours and sustainable fabrics for his Spring-Summer 2017 collection.
The New York-based brand said the urban-nomad look was inspired by the 2014 drama ‘Theeb’, about a young Bedouin boy who must fight to survive in the desert.
Nicholas K translated the film onto the runway dressing the models in neutral-coloured loose garments such as draped pants, long flowing capes and asymmetrical jackets in a variety of fabrics.
Each look was paired with over-sized visor or floppy hats and ultra-high ponytails.
New York Fashion Week runs until September 15.
