As American fashion week comes to a close in New York, Paris Modes TV fashion editor Natalia Grgona took a moment to share her impressions on the season's runway presentations and their lot of surprises.
What's the top trend from NYFW?
The last major cold fronts in New York led to a comeback for voluminous outerwear: each runway show presented a vast offering of coats, parkas and jackets of all kinds, made with technical materials and special lining for braving low temperatures.
One of the major trends of this New York fashion week is the return of the rebel look, with each designer providing his or her own interpretation: colorful "punkettes" in studded berets and shoes at Marc Jacobs, 80s-inspired looks at Diesel Black Gold, sensual "grungettes" at Alexander Wang, and 70s-style urban rock looks at Rodarte.
Which designer created the biggest buzz?
If we're talking about pure buzz, Kanye West and adidas created a stir at the start of the week by releasing the Yeezy Boost.
Tommy Hilfiger once again had everyone talking thanks to its superb staging... But if we're looking at the clothes themselves, three labels continue to make a big impression: Alexander Wang, Rodarte and Proenza Schouler.
Who are the new models to watch?
Kendall Jenner -- Kim Kardashian's half-sister -- was all over the shows and is decidedly one of the major faces of the season.
Gigi Hadid certainly did not go unnoticed, and the new very young faces at Marc by Marc Jacobs are worth following.
Which show had the best atmosphere?
New York fashion week is all about twists and turns, and with around 350 shows and eight days of runway events, it's safe to say that each day comes with its share of surprises. Moncler Grenoble delivered a true declaration of love with its giant heart on Valentine's Day. Tommy Hilfiger still carries out the most impressive staging: this time we were treated to a real football field. Thom Browne drew us into a very poetic narrative on the theme of a funeral ceremony. Boss Women took us to the 43rd floor of a skyscraper with a view over the Statue of Liberty and all of downtown Manhattan: it was simply magical.
