LA MODE TEXTILE: NYFW SS18 Highlights

LA MODE TEXTILE: NYFW SS18 Highlights

Last week at New York Fashion Week designers debuted looks for spring / summer 2018. This season Red rocked the runways with Fluorescent Yellow following closely behind in second place. The usual suspects gingham, stripes & florals kept looks airy and seasonally appropriate. Scroll down to see my NYFW SS18 highlights including colors to add to your watch list for emerging trends in fashion which will likely migrate into interiors in the coming year or so.

 

1. RED

The dominant color trend on the SS18 runways was red. Designers ranging from Valentino to Brandon Maxwell and Victoria Beckham had dedicated red looks, and others such as Bibhu Mohapatra used red as an accent color which begs the question... is red the new black? My absolute favorite red look is the above image  from the Victoria Beckham runway.

Ladies, mark your calendars - spring 2018 will be the time to break out a bold red lip!

2. FLUORESCENT  YELLOW

Yellow is having a major moment, with canary covering the red carpet as of late, gold rush slated to be a big color in 2018 interiors as referenced in our 2018 interior color trends post, and a more fluorescent side now emerging as a NYFW color trend. The standout use of fluorescent yellow was Delpozo's footwear and apparel accent combo as seen above, along with Tom Ford's glam evening wear below.

3. FLORAL PRINTS

Floral prints continue to have a big presence on the spring/summer runways. This season designers opted for impact with tropical florals, single color wallpaper florals, reflected florals (likely the last of this trend), and the always classic embellished florals for evening wear.
