New York Fashion Week dominated the headlines over the weekend, with high-profile shows from Alexander Wang and Tommy Hilfiger leading the way.
Here, we take a look at the highlights.
1. Tommy Hilfiger and Gigi Hadid made an unstoppable duo on Friday night, when the pair unveiled their Tommy x Gigi collection to a full house, including a front row that featured Taylor Swift.
The festivities lasted a whole two days, in the form of a public fun fair, and the collection was immediately available for purchase following the show.
2. Lacoste took a relaxed approach to Spring/Summer 2017 on Saturday, unveiling a series of softly draped terry dresses in calming hues.
The tennis-inspired label paired comfy fits and minimalistic lines with tropical, preppy prints infused with the idea of summer getaways.
3. Victoria Beckham was another designer opting for a relaxed aesthetic for Spring/Summer 2017, unveiling slouchy dresses in soft crushed velvets and silks, paired with knee-high flat canvas boots for extra comfort. The designer focused on plush colors ranging from luxurious creams to turquoises, lilacs and rich violets, with pieces often worn open to reveal matching bras.
Meanwhile Altuzarra also played with bright colours, debuting a flirtatious collection centered around frills, ruffles and summery pastel tones.
4. Things got a little grittier when Alexander Wang at last revealed his highly-anticipated collection for Adidas Originals, focusing on unisex streetwear basics with an urban and subversive feel.
He also debuted the Spring/Summer 2017 collection for his eponymous label, which was rooted in a sports-like, deconstructed California vibe, with sexy black leather pieces pepped up by retro neon hues.
Subversive brand Hood By Air channeled the same youthful sexiness but took things up several notches with a conceptual show that featured double-ended boots, transparent ponchos, Porn Hub logos, oversized outwear and more.
5. Elsewhere, Dutch label The Faux made its NYFW debut with a game-changing show that focused on gender fluidity and featured male models strutting down the catwalk in heels, corsets and skirts, fabricated using multiple recycled fashion pieces.
