New York Fashion Week in February was, as always, a decadent albeit chilly affair. Though the Fall/Winter 2014 collections were diverse, there were many recurring trends that linked the designers together in their shared fashion consciousness for the season. The stand out trends included an abundance of sequins at Marc Jacobs and 3.1 Phillip Lim; bold, bright furs and shearling patchwork at Rodarte; and utilitarian sportswear and futuristic space motifs at Diesel Black and Gold and MM6.
The sets were often spectacles in their own right. We had walls that bled chocolate at Opening Ceremony, and fluffy clouds suspended over the crowd at Marc Jacobs, and even a mass exodus to – gasp! – Brooklyn for Alexander Wang.
