It was only last year that designer Calla Haynes first showed her collection during NYFW, and yesterday the designer was back again to show off yet another vibrant collection. Haynes is known for her strong print designs, which is why it came as no surprise to see a collection full of bold clashing prints, a nod towards ‘relaxed luxury’, as the designer herself describes her collection. The designer has managed to create a modern twist on ‘easy to wear’ fashion, by mixing quirky prints with more classic ones, like plaid and bright florals, which has led to a youthful, yet luxurious, collection.
‘Street Style’ is just as inspirational to me, if not more, than catwalk shows and designer campaigns, because I love to admire what others are wearing in the real world. It has occurred to me that there are so many inspirational cultures and fashions across the world that I need to have a closer look at, which is why I’ve chosen a few of my favorite looks from across the world, so enjoy and be inspired!
London: expect oversized coats, sportswear, amazing tailoring, mixed prints, and a great use of separates.
Tokyo: expect a lot of experimentation, lots of colour, a playful take on dressing, and individuality everywhere you look!
Paris: expect sleek, simple structures, flat oxford shoes, and a chic, classic and feminine approach to styling.
Moscow: expect a more daring approach to dressing, humorous and sporty twists , furs (of course), bright colours, eclectic patterns, and a great use of darker colours.
New York: expect an eclectic mix of sports, boho, feminine tailoring and an ‘undone’ look- half untucked shirts, unbuttoned blouses- and a surprising amount of denim.
New Delhi: reminiscent of the Indian culture you can expect an underestimated sense of glamour achieved by mixing bright colours and patterns.
