As New York is plunged into the depths of winter, the fashion crowds gathered to find out what the city’s designers have got in store for Autumn/Winter 2015. Here’s our round up of the best luxury fashion coming out of the city.
Victoria Beckham’s Autumn/Winter 15 collection was stripped back, with colours and patterns kept to a bare minimum and a full focus on the cut. Oversized coats were a key item for the season, alternated with simple dresses and knits. With this collection, Victoria Beckham proved she has mastered the art of tailoring.

The models at the Alexander Wang show emerged on the catwalk in platform combat boots and wet look hair across the face, setting the tone for a collection was infused with a dark, punky edge. Black looks bore studded details, making Alexander Wang the rebellious show of the season.
Joseph Altuzarra presented a very feminine collection for the season, with copious amounts of lace, ruffles and high-necks giving it all a Victorian feel. The show was also an opportunity for the designer to launch his bag line, which he has named “Notch” handbags, a clear sign that the Altuzarra label is all set for expansion.

For AW15 Philip Lim played with the notion of structures and systems. The designer explained: “I looked at clothing archetypes; suits, coats, a trench, the nice 'lady' dress, which are the flag bearers for these systems and began the process to cut away, reverse, collapse and simply kick it all around a bit.” In the process of deconstruction, slouchy shapes and checks became a recurring motif.
With New York Fashion Week now coming to a close, its London’s turn next on the fashion week calendar.
