Light, airy fabrics and crisp white garments dominated the Brocks Collection runway. The feminine silhouette and exposed shoulders make perfect summer wedding outfits. Scrap all-white-everything and complete the look with a pair of black stilettos instead.

Scrape your hair into a sleek high pony and throw on a light jacket to achieve this smart yet comfortable look. Team with a pair of copper satin shorts and a large fannypack and you’ll be ready to jet off to sunshine. 

New York Fashion Week Day 1: Tom Ford

The iconic Tom Ford is highly recognised for his glamorous and powerful aesthetic. Kicking off New York Fashion Week in the Four Seasons hotel whilst it is under construction with an event full of Hollywood stars including Uma Thurman and Tom Hanks, symbolises the way Mr. Ford creates clothes. 

As well as providing a stunning start to the week, Tom Ford launched the fastest of fashion retail strategy. See it, buy it, own it. The whole collection was made available instantly from directly online and department stores such as Bergdorf Goodman’s. The designer wanted change, and if it delivers, it will change the fashion world forever.

Waists are clinched by leather corsets that feature heavy buckle detail. Velvet also features on ankle-length dresses which ooze glamour. Get the Tom Ford look by combining theses elements and polishing off the look with atweed  blazer. 

New York Fashion Week: Day 1 ft Yeezy Season 3 + 6 Surprises

Fashion month has started! I’m so excited to see what A/W16 has to offer.

What features on this blog will only ever be collections from shows I’ve enjoyed and actually liked the clothes. Anything without wow-factor simply won’t make the cut. Therefore, I only have one show to talk about today. And it’s the show that everyone is talking about…

YEEZY SEASON 3

 Exclusive to Tidal subscribers (lucky me!) was a live stream that featured Kanye West’s latest Adidas x Yeezy collection, his new album, ‘The Life Of Pablo’ and a few surprises. 

  
Surprise number 1:

These giant hills of silk material start rippling before the show begins. Suddenly, the material is pulled away and reveals models wearing Kanye’s new collection standing on top of a towering podium. Below them is a crowd of even more models.

Surprise number 2: 

As Kanye’s music is blaring and the models are standing there blank-faced. Out of no where Naomi Campbell struts into position and poses graciously.

Surprise number 3: 

Kanye made a song about himself. It was satirical of how he is perceived by everyone and it enjoyable.  ‘I love you like Kanye loves Kanye’

Surprise number 4:

Fashion design is a learning process and Kanye has responded to criticism regarding the pricing of his collections and has agreed to make it more affordable and accessible to the public.

Surprise number 5:

The Kardashian/Jenner clan are repping custom-made Balmain x Yeezy. According to Kim Kardashian, Olivier Rousteing made the collection happen in just 5 days! Although it isn’t the best I’ve seen from Balmain, you can’t disregard how much effort that would’ve been to make it happen in such a short timeframe. 

Surprise number 6:

Kanye is releasing a video game of his mum flying through heaven. I’m being serious. Wheneve I’m concentrating I talk to myself and I said “Is this even real?!” Whilst the preview was shown. I still can’t believe it. Credit to Kanye for creating a fashion collection, album and video game in that amount of time though. 

Unlike the majority of designers, the cast at Yeezy Season 3 was a large majority of POC which is really good to see. There are so many coloured models who had the chance to display their beauty at the show. 

Whether you think this is ‘post-apocalyptic trash’, (a comment I saw on Instagram this morning) or a genuine attempt of a man trying to express himself. You have to admit, Kanye West knows how to put on a good show and get the whole world talking about him. 

What is your opinion of the show?
