NYFW runway overview pt.3

Girls this post is dedicated to all of you! As you know 2XN1 is mainly dedicated to men's fashion and lifestyle. However, since New York Fashion Week is having so many delicious womenswear collections I decided to share them with all of you. I selected 4 looks from each designer/brand. Hope it inspires you all! ;)

Victoria Beckham is the definition of class and effortless style. Her collection is a true reflection of her personality. She designs with herself in mind, I'm sure. This cute dresses and Spring/Summer pieces are very fresh and fluid, I love the colors used: black, white, burgundy, a little of pink, grey. All of the looks are very elegant and in my opinion Mrs. Beckham is establishing herself as a good designer. We better start taking herself very seriously!

Prabal Gurung's Spring/Summer 2014 fashion show presented a hit and miss collection. I loved the looks I selected above, from the prints to the clean cut looks. It's chic but there's still a modern contemporary twist. However, there was something missing for me. The inspiration is said to be Marilyn Monroe, I fail to see her in these creations.

Amazing collection. Joseph Altuzarra slayed New York with a very sexy sophisticated collection. Think of effortless looks from a city girl who's not afraid to risk it all when it comes to fashion. That's how I would describe this. Love the fabrics used, specially the shiny metallic gold and silver pieces. It was so beautifully done. Amazing!!!

Perfect. Max Azria creates delicious clothes. The BCBG Spring/Summer 2014 collection is everything a woman should have on her wardrobe. It's hot and sassy and daring but elegant, not vulgar. The neutral colors, the soft floral-ish prints, the see through details, the cut-out tops, fluid trousers and dresses. American design at its best! A+++

Helmut Lang was all about lines. It's morte of an alternative perspective on womenswear but I like it, a lot. Not everyone can pull off these looks, however the lines and angles are wonderful. Minimalist silhouettes and a 90's vibe here and there, a lot of black and white, overall it's a refined cool collection.

Jason Wu's woman is a powerful one. It reflects on his collection which is filled with a strong personality and a clear vision. All of the looks are very detailed, casual and relaxed. What I also loved about Wu's Spring/Summer 2014 collection was the duality between light and dark through fabrics and black, grey and white palette. One word to sum it up: seductiveness.
