FW18 New York: Greta Constantine, Colovos, MILLY, and More

No contributor

Last week marked the start of the women’s Fall/Winter 2018 fashion shows. Now that New York Fashion Week is coming to an end, we’re here to share a few highlights from the runways, presentations, and appointments.

In the depths of the Chinatown Market, Snow Xue Gao showcased their Fall/Winter 2018 collection. Taking observations from Chinese culture in New York, this collection was the perfect fusion between east and west. Through men’s tailoring, Gao draws references from her Beijing upbringing and uses this cultural blend to showcase traditional Qipao dressing with her own twist. Colorful silk and jewel tones punctuate her silhouettes and emphasize their architectural design.

Captured by the idea of the matriarch, the Colovos Fall/Winter 2018 show presents women finding strength in vulnerability. Through their fabrications, Colovos contrasts the soft and the hard, with a focus on environment and sustainability. Eliminating animal skins, furs and leathers, recycled materials become new silhouettes, reducing their traditional footprint by 95 percent.

The MILLY Fall/Winter 2018 showcase presents a chromatic moment. In a celebration of block color, the uniqueness of each individual extends to a vibrant expression of the collection as a rainbow. Colorful threads hung from a ceiling light and became the backdrop for a reflection of the inclusiveness of love and MILLY’s desire for equality and strength in collectiveness. Another moment in equality and history included the unveiling of the Obama portraits this week in D.C., with Mrs. Michelle Obama wearing a MILLY dress in her portrait.

At a private penthouse, Greta Constantine presented their Fall/Winter 2018 collection. From night-into-day, this collection captured the high points of New York with a modern exuberance. With a focus on the silhouette, motifs of silk satin bows sculpted bodies whilst in a nod to ‘80s empowerment, shoulders were emphasized with voluminous and angular sleeves. Texture and movement were reflected through the two-tone sequined pieces with high pointed-toe boots reflecting an edge to the collection.

Larkspur & Hawk took this week in New York to showcase its Spring/Summer 2018 jewelry collection featuring geometric earring, pendant and riviéres. With a color palette of soft pink/grey, multi blue and rainbow, a big trend for spring, there is no color that Emily doesn’t do. The DNA of Larkspur & Hawk lays in their unique foiled gem settings, a sentiment that founder Emily carries with her from her background in museum curating, antique jewelry collecting and love for decorative objects. This technique of a colored foil behind a gemstone creates a halo effect you can’t get any other way. Emily brings back beautiful forms that used to exist in the 1870/1880s, resurrecting pieces for the modern woman. Her attention to detail changes the overall look of pieces, never reproducing but rather taking a modern interpretation. The Larkspur & Hawk showroom is a reflection of the brand and its uniqueness and will open to clients in April.

Visvim released their menswear Fall-Winter 2018 collection alongside a Visvim women’s wear collection. With a focus on the staple over-sized pieces, Visvim brings luxe to casual. Both collections feature muted tones and practicality in every-day-wear.
