This most recent New York Fashion Week came with newly revived trends from the 80’s and early 90’s, complete with accentuated shoulders, off-the-shoulder tops, voluminous silhouettes, and plenty of ruffles. A standout trend from this category though, was the classic power suit, revamped. With the rise of androgyny on the runway over the past few years, this is not a surprising direction for brands to embark upon. Designers like Calvin Klein, Vivienne Tam, and Jason Wu all showed versions of the menswear-inspired suit look, each with its own unique styling.
Amy Smilovic of Tibi included pinstripe blazers in an extra-oversized fit, while more classically tailored pieces in monochromatic styling appeared on the runway at The Row. At Nicole Miller, edgy, grunge inspired suiting was featured in the collection, complimented by graphic embroidery and dark, smudged eye makeup.
