New York Fashion Week Travel Diary – Day 2

February 21, 2017

NYFW Street Style Fashion BlogI had a mix of excitement and disillusion as the temperature dropped below freezing on Day 2 of New York Fashion Week. You know when you go on vacation and check the weather before you go so you could pack appropriately? Well, I checked the weather and did not recall seeing the surprise snow storm, so after being pushed around by the strong winds on Day 1, I decided I deserved a more relaxed, snuggly outfit for Day 2.

NYFW Street StyleNYFW Fashion Week AccessoriesFashion Week Street StyleNYFW Street Style ShoesNYFW Street StyleNYFW Street Style February 2017Street Style NYFW 2017Street Style NYFW Faux FurI love a good faux fur coat, and cold weather makes me happy just because I could wear them. On the second day, I layered a white leopard faux fur coat over a leather jacket to stay warm. I really only enjoy wearing leather bags when it’s not raining or snowing out. Even when treated to repel water, they are a piece of luxury and investment to me, so I like to keep them in top shape and weathering as long as possible. I love that this Valentino B-Rockstud is is a much softer calfskin leather than the standard single colored ones you typically see. It’s striped – a classic print that I can wear with so many outfits because it’s black and ivory, so it still pops when I wear it.

You can shop my look below. The Valentino B-Rockstud in this color and style are sold out everywhere, but I’ve included a link to a couple of places you can buy them for a lot less on consignment! Really, it’s a steal and the leather is incredibly buttery.

GET THE LOOK

The Valentino B-Rockstud Striped Medium Bag I’m wearing is sold out everywhere, but available on consignment for a fraction of the price here.

Now for the extra fun part: I’m rounding up Day 2 of New York Fashion Week. If you followed my instastories, you got to see first hand what I was going to and seeing throughout the day.

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK – DAY 2 RUNWAY SHOWS

1) Dan Liu
A collection full of mod silhouettes and accented vibrant silk scarves and footwear by Liliana Shoes dominated the runway show in Dan Liu’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection.Liui’s designs included some unexpected details elevated with pop-art anime inspirations. The long jackets and some of the exaggerated shoulders are a call to the 70s and 80s. Here are the top few looks from the runway:

2) LANYU
LANYU’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection was a romantic mix of powder pink and soft sky tones. Much of the collection used jeweled tweed, marled wool, cashmere and silk on velvet with touches of leather and metal. The presentation of lace under coats is a great call out to the trend of taking bedroom inspiration to the streets. In the collection, you’ll find traditional Chinese Su embroidery, multicolored woven lace, dyed camel hair, gold embellishments on tulle and butterfly patterns. LANYU’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection was call on inspiration from her dreamlike nostalgia and I absolutely followed her.
Each piece was beautifully done with feminine details. The coats and pants were elegantly cut. I could literally add so many separates and wear them in various ways throughout the year.

3) Hakan Akkaya
Hakan Akkaya provided a full black and white collection with some touches of metallic, but it was far from boring. With an emphasis on “Sporty Culture”, there was a fantastic mix of textures that included silver zippers, ruffles, velvet, demin, mesh detailing, metallics and harnesses. A collection combining a strong play on textures and volume were at play, and most of them with a hardness to them that give off the vibe of confidence and strength.
I must confess that I was greatly appreciated the strong point of view for Hakan Akkaya, but grew to love the collection so much more after seeing all the photos once more. In Canada, my style used to include a lot of black, mixing hard and soft, so this really should have been a no brainer for me, as the hardness and layering soft with hard in Hakan Akkaya is truly sublime. See the collection below.

4) Club Monaco Spring/Sumer 2017

Finally, I finished off the night taking a look at the Club Monaco Spring 2017 Collection preview in New York. The flagship store was transformed into a blooming garden. The tall ceilings, trees, beautiful walls covered with fresh flowers. It was like stepping into a fairytale! The collection was a modern take on gypsy style with peasant blouses, pantsuits, bursts of florals. I particularly loved the floral bomber jacket (but you already know I love a good bomber), the red ruffle setand the off the shoulder pieces, which I believe always add a bit of sensuality to the wardrobe.
