Last week, the Big Apple inaugurated the official Fashion Week season with some of the most grandiose designs seen in a while. The agitation surrounding designer’s ceremonials is felt throughout the city, and at this exact time of the year, the New York Fasion Week appears increasingly vintage. Some of the looks beneath are reminiscent of our favourite vintage collections, while others orbits around the ideas of experimentation and avant-garde.

Whether in the streets or on the runway, the unmistakable energy of the 70s seemed to be another huge inspiration: suits were ram-shouldered, shirt collars were bigger than in years past, and the fabrics (a cascade of velour and exotic leather) wouldn’t have looked out of place at the Dapper Dan Gucci atelier. Suffice to say, there’s plenty of visual inspiration to chew on.
For our regular fashion month coverage be sure to check back periodically over the next few weeks, but till then take a look at the best street style at New York Fashion Week that we’ve seen thus far.
