New York Fashion Week kicks off five weeks of non-stop fashion shows in four cities- which is as glamourous and as gruelling as it sounds- and these luxury designers deliver hard-working staples that effortlessly set the trends.
What did Rosetta Getty do when she couldn’t find the clothes to accommodate her busy lifestyle? The jet-setting working mother and former model launched a namesake label in 2014 that oozes easy modern elegance. An instant hit with the Hollywood set, each season brings sophisticated silhouettes, exquisite fabrications and art world references.
Wunderkind Alexander Wang is NYFW’s hottest ticket. Besides reinventing the now ubiquitous model-off-duty look he arguably created to capture the zeitgeist, Wang is also a prolific It-accessory maker. Progressive yet polished and always cool-girl approved thanks to friends and model muses like Zoë Kravitz and Dree Hemingway, his newest styles have 24/7 appeal.
Parlaying a one-way ticket to New York into one of America’s buzziest contemporary fashion brands, Phillip Lim is the go-to for brilliant basics and streetwise staples synonymous with youthful, laid back luxury. Alexa Chung, Solange and Michelle Obama are big fans of the Chinese-American, who recalled to his Californian roots to design his latest collection.
