New York Fashion Week is over for another season, here's our whistle stop round-up of our favourite styles that donned the Runways
The Bungee Tie at Fenty Puma
Known for her daring and ‘out there’ looks, we just knew Rihanna was going to pull something pretty special out of the bag. She did not disappoint. Her Sunday night Fashion Show, held at the Park Armory in Manhattan featured BMX riders (which she also rode in on herself), futuristic, sleek athletic gear and hair that was quite literally out of this world. Sleekly slicked back at the front with a dramatically contrasting bungee tie creation at the back, this masterpiece was created by Rihanna's long time stylist 'Yusef'. He described his inspiration as "athletic, cool, bad girl, graphic with a little bit of edge hair'. Whilst we are obsessed with this look on the Runway, we aren’t sure we'll be trying it out on ourselves any time soon.
The Bombshell Boy Cut at Tom Ford
Kendal Jenner and Gigi Hadid stole the show with their uncharacterised new bobs. The models hair was gathered into barely perceptible twists to create a faux bob effect with textured strands on top. The designer’s inspiration behind the look was his belief that now is the time to be bold with beauty choices, ‘we want to inspire you to actually cut off all your hair’ he remarked. Hmmm, we’re all for bold looks Tom, but we won’t be taking a razor to the head in the name of fashion just yet!
The Scrunchie makes a comeback at Mansur Gavriel
Enter the 90’s school girl favourite accessory of all time, the beloved Scrunchie. The throwback accessory topped off a loose low-slung ponytail, creating a chic and effortless feel. Let’s face it, no fashion week would be complete without some form of Ponytail.
Grungy Rapunzel braids at Phillip Plein
Long, Rapunzel like locks have been ever popular as of late, thanks to the like of the Kardashians, but Phillip Plein took the trend to new lengths (literally) for his show on Saturday night. ‘good girl gone bad’ was the theme of his show, so naturally the models were split into good and bad girls. All were given floor length braids, but the good girls were adorned with Disney inspired flowers and the bad gothic black roses. The braids were of course achieved with extensions, hairstylist Outen who was behind the look claimed that he used 200 packets all together!
We can't wait to see what London Fashion Week serves up to compete!
