Day Two featured some of fashion’s heavyweights: Jason Wu, Tommy Hilfiger, Helmut Lang, and See By Chloe (shown digitally for the second season running). Jason Wu, blending fetishism and humanism inspired from photographers Helmut Newton and Lillian Bassman, kept true to his usual form with signature shaping and cuts.
“It’s always about a British girl in New York,” says David Neville, one half of the designer duo of Rag & Bone. But this year, there was an extra element to their collection – “We were thinking of the Dakar rally,” explains Marcus Wainwright, the other half of Rag & Bone.
The vision materialised in lightweight jackets, motor cross styled outerwear, and slouchy, tapered pants with geometric inserts. Arabic influences shone in dusty palettes, head wraps, and voluminous tops, which constantly played on the brand’s idea of masculine-feminine blending. Embroidered edgings, flared skirts hinting at petticoats and window pane checks was the British nod.
Blasts of neon green and coral made sure the collection was never too pretty. Wrap-coat dresses and sleeveless coats finished off my favourite collection of Day Two.
