New York Fashion Week is quickly coming to a close, and the most prominent trends from the runways are now making themselves known. Many have not been subtle, as several designers have opted for statement pieces in both clothing and accessories as opposed to minimalism this season. In terms of accessories, one particular stand-out trend has been the headpiece. Designers like Altuzarra, Nicholas K, Lela Rose, and Norma Kamali have incorporated the dramatic accessory into their collections, adding an edge to the styling of each look.
Vaquera’s designers were inspired by the American Dream, while Nicholas K was influenced by street fashion in the 90’s. Sachin & Babi drew from jewels and lively prints found in India; they showed a smaller sized, beaded headpiece paired with a beige embroidered dress. On the subtler, more classic side of things were Kate Spade, Lela Rose, and CG, all of which showed more restrained versions of the accessory.
