playing catch-up: ss 2015 New York

New York Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2015 has just officially come to a close and London Fashion Week is up next. September 2014 is basically fashion month---London Fashion Week next, then Milan then Paris!---and being my birth month, it's like Christmas or candy wonderland for me although I'd wish I could afford the clothes I see on the runways at this time. Not likely to happen in this lifetime however. 

So much good stuff has come out of New York and prolific American designers I'm already looking forward to fashion week in Paris. I'm definitely going to take a hint from a lot of the trends this year and probably do my own rendition of them somehow. Just so I don't break the bank before I do start working by the following school year---March 2015 is hopefully the month I finally graduate from grad school. Yay!  

Social media has made fashion week so much easier to keep tabs on these days. I've done nothing but lurk around instagram and twitter for updates on these and I was not disappointed by all the successive updates at all! This week, all I probably did was flood my friends in real life and from various fandoms with retweeted updates of fashion shows and such around New York. (Sorry, guys!) I shall count on social media again for Paris Fashion Week at the end of this month. Meanwhile, I'll be checking in once in a while with London and Milan's successive fashion weeks. Bring on the rest of Fashion Month September!

And without further ado, here are some trends that have grabbed my attention via social media:

All white everything on Frame Denim at the start of New York Fashion Week SS 2015. A lot of whites in my closet are begging to be styled this way. Later...yes.

Tommy Hilfiger goes starry, colorful and boho. Seriously. And just about everyone from Olivia Palermo to Vogue Paris and Vogue UK are talking about this.
Luxe-ish pinstripped shorts are currently stuck in my head as of the last photo from this batch.

3.1 Phillip Lim goes cheery yellow. I'm eternally stuck around the little white top however.

One of the highlights for this fashion week in New York, the amazing little black dresses from Anthony Vaccarello's collection with Versus, Versace. Breathtaking details on mainly black.

Rag and Bone keeps the urban street style (and beachwear) fans happy. Leather shorts and those slippers. A must to have just about everywhere especially in the islands.

Obsessed with the surfboards in Elizabeth and James and that sleeveless mini suit dress.

Another highlight for NYFW Spring/Summer 2015: Jason Wu's covetable pretty, sleek clean tailored collection for Hugo Boss. This collection is legit BOSS.

Perfect and easy all black collection from Theory.

All at Michael Kors Spring/Summer 2015
1. tied belt around the waist and that untamed shaggy shoulder-length hair
2. messy braid

As of today, the Marc Jacobs collection has just come out and it's a treasure trove of utilitarian clothing wares. I'm not sure yet how I feel about it but I do like it a lot. Calvin Klein's Spring/Summer 2015 collection is also amazing for being the usual classic Calvin Klein simplistic/minimalistic stuff.
