New York Fashion Week Spring 2018 has arrived, giving us a sneak peek into trends we can only hope will influence new seasons of skiwear.
From striking colors to a long-overdue reemergence of feathers, here are pieces from the five designers we’re enjoying most so far:
Designer: Tom Ford
The Look: This Michael Jackson-inspired cut indicates bigger, bolder silhouettes to come, and we can’t wait to see them on the slopes — particularly if orange really is the new black. Added bonus? No one is missing you around a blind turn.
Designer: Rebecca Minkoff
The Look: This Brianna Parka was love at ‘furst’ sight for us (we just couldn’t help that one), and we do not want to be slope-side anywhere after 4 p.m. this winter without it. Thankfully, there’s so much more in this collection, lest we all find ourselves outside the Stein Eriksen Lodge in the same pink-edged parka.
The Look: The off-the-shoulder throwback has been creeping back into everyday wardrobes across Soho, and we love this cut for fireside apres-ski, particularly in Suno’s eco-friendly fabrics. And yes, we realize we’re cheating with pieces from last season’s collection, but can you really blame us?
Designer: Ohne Titel
The Look: We had such a hard time picking just one eye-catching piece from Ohne Titel’s couture-worthy collection — from this Beetlejuice-inspired jumper to a whole line of feather-like furs — but the particularly Magic Flute-like piece below (for any opera lovers out there) gives us hope that we may one day give literal meaning to blue-bird days. And for that, we must give it the feature.
Designer: Mara Hoffman
The Look: We concede, Mara Hoffman’s SS18 palette could not possibly be more “spring”, but we can only hope these colors make their way into the skiwear of the following year. One-piece suit designers, take note: we enthusiasts of the early ’90s want a geometric shape renaissance.
NYFW is only halfway over! Check back this week to see more looks from favorite designers, including skiers Victoria Beckham and Ralph Lauren.
