The splendor and delight of Spring Summer 2020 was in full display this New York Fashion Week cycle and we couldn’t be more delight to see touches of natural fur sprinkled in to add glamour, texture and excitement to the runway.
Spring Summer 2020 Glamour Reigns Supreme
Son Jung Wan’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection, aptly titled, “Into the Splendor”, married romance and fashion made for fairy tales. Billowy fabrics in muted yellow buttercup and creamy mint green, the look of poofy sleeves and bows gave all the pieces a girlish charm. Jung Wan paired each outfit with a “can’t miss” metallic silver platform heel with ribbon ties. Eh hem….Cinderella. Lots of visual interest in this collection.
Brandon Maxwell strutted his stuff with all things desirable for ss2020. His craftsmanship and tailoring expertise was on full display. Blazers and short short shorts, sumptuous blouses, and high waisted jeans all played into Maxwell’s attempt to go more “casual”. A denim jumpsuit was divine-a perfect denim blouse seamed together with a perfect pair of jeans- and just the right dainty jewelry to pull it altogether! Loooooved it! Maxwell’s loyal followers have been clamoring for this more laid back RTW but, he couldn’t resist adding his signature ball gown silhouettes. A pale pink organza strapless high low dress over a simple pair of jeans curbed his appetite for dressed up style!
The Creative Director of Burnett New York, Emily Burnett and her co-founder, Sterling McDavid, have a penchant for small details which make a major impact! Glistening rhinestone embellishments, gold and black sequin honey bee appliqués, delicate tufts of mink, and gold grommets were among the special adornments that made some of the pieces couture quality. Burnett cut her teeth (or cloth LOL) as the as Creative Director for fashion god, Dennis Basso so, this news will surprise no one….Burnett’s spring mink intarsia coats were the “wow” factor of this collection! Black and white or black and periwinkle minks blended together like a watercolor painting made their mark. It is so exciting to see that Basso and Fendi have a rising star to pick up the reins in fur fashion!
Naeem Khan seems to make no apologies for designing an all evening gown collection and we’re not mad about it either! “Slinky”, “heavily beaded”, and “body con” were the operative words to describe the vibe. Really pretty sherbet pastels brought home the spring theme. The ONLY thing that should have topped off the couture feel was a multicolored fox fling…a missed opportunity, for sure.
