So New York Fashion Week is in full flow and it’s always weird to see the season your leaving behind being put under the spotlight. But with spring/summer it’s somehow easier..possibly because – despite the driving rain, thunder and gale force winds – I’m still clinging into the thought of an indian summer – but also because it’s less about bikini’s and beachwear and more about layers..and even sleeves, that all work year round..
Clicking through the shows it’s good to see body-con given the boot. The lines are looser and inherently forgiving, with a feminine edge. Isa Arfen is a prime example.
There’s functionality but with full throttle character.

These are the love child of the colour and comfort of real life with the craft and credentials of cutting edge.
Pure poetry in motion.
