Fall 2014 Trends

Your first time at any international fashion week will teach you a valuable lesson: You need a fur. And not just any Margot Tenenbaum style granny hand-me-down. A fur so intricately patterned, multi-layered and artificially coloured, that it has to be designer. Given its place at the apex of the top Fall 2014 trends, you’d think recessionary times were long gone—it’s virtually everywhere, from a hyper colour mink at Altuzarra to a fluffy red dress at Prada. Wear it with caution or as Dior prescribes, dangle it over your arm like it’s no big d. Let the fur fly, scruples or otherwise.

One of the best things about going backstage at New York fashion week is seeing what the top makeup artists and hairstylists are using in their kits. It’s often a sneak peek at products not yet on shelves, or uncommon tools they’ve found on their travels. Here, five of the best products we’ve spied backstage this week at the Fall 2013 shows: Read more »

Just before New York Fashion Week, Pantone released its forecast for Fall 2014, citing “Radiant Orchid,” “Mauve Mist” and “Aurora Red” as some of the top hits. Well, yup. From ball gowns to the avant-garde, designers have kept their hues in check this season, using a pretty strikingly clear palette from which to create. Here are some of the standouts, Pantone-approved or otherwise:

Katie Holmes vs. Anna Kendrick: Which sweetheart star was best dressed in the front row at NYFW?



See the front row looks up close »

While our street style shots have captured an abundance of colour on the streets of New York, it seems that all-black is the dominant trend in the celebrity-filled front row. Case in point: Katie Holmes and Anna Kendrick. Holmes has been working the NYFW circuit for a few years now, whereas Kendrick is quickly becoming a front row staple at this season’s shows. While they have yet to sit side by side , their style is certainly in tandem.

At last night’s Donna Karan Fall 2014 show—which was also the label’s 30th anniversary—Katie Holmes switched up her usually demure style with a sexy black Donna Karan outfit. Comprised of a fitted leather bodice and flowing, sheer black skirt it was a departure from the city-casual looks she’s become known for. (Speaking of, her Holmes and Yang label doesn’t seem to be showing this season. Hmm.) The actress kept her hair simple with a tousled, natural wave and her makeup was at a minimum—very much in line with her campaign looks for Bobbi Brown. While Suri would have been an excellent addition to her outfit, Holmes looked like she was enjoying her solo night out and spent much of the show chatting with British singer Rita Ora.

The nails at New York Fashion Week were right in tune with the ’90s minimalism style we saw on the Spring 2014 runways. Sheer is in, colour is out and the nail art trend seems to be winding down. The bare and buffed nails of last spring are still going strong for 2014, with designers like Altuzarra, Alexander Wang and Jeremy Laing opting for pale shades of pink, lavender or beige instead of punchy pastels and neon brights.

Who else but the Duchess of Cambridge could get Karl Lagerfeld to whip out his pen with the promise of nothing more than fantasy? Today, Women’s Wear Daily released 13 sketches of maternity designs suggested by the likes of Donna Karan, Vera Wang, Alexis Mabille, Chloé and Lagerfeld for Chanel as Kate Middleton’s baby bump continue to grow. Including both designers who frequently dress the Duchess like Amanda Wakeley, and ones who haven’t, like Huishan Zhang, the piece could be a good shot for some less recognizable names to get noticed by friends in royal places. Or not. If nothing else, it’s an exercise in imagination, which hasn’t been attempted since the Duke and Duchess’s last big event: the Royal Wedding. We picked a few designs from the selection that we think are right on the money for Kate. Click through for our selects and visit WWD for the full maternity monty.
