NYFW SS18 The Glass Round-up

GLASS rounds-up the most standout fashion shows held during New York Fashion Week Spring / Summer 2018.

Instead of chasing pavements, Alexander Wang was busy chasing the busy streets of Brooklyn to debut his SS18 collection.  The show took place in three different New York streets, where all 32 models where transported to each location in a #WANGFEST bus. Wang’s shows are always extravagant and wild and it was a Glass favourite.



A stand-out look from the collection was the dark grey cut-off jean shorts which were stitched together with black leather creating a mixed material trouser. Mica Arganaraz, wore it with an oversized blue and white pinstriped work shirt. The tucked in shirt was half covered by a cream lace, silk camisole top. The overall look was paired with red fishnet boots and a studded, black leather bag.

For New York, Wang delivered and his collection was a modern reworking of all the things we love.

Ever heard of a fashion show in a garage? Well, now you have, Ralph Lauren presented his stunning SS18 collection in his own garage, the catwalk was lined with his classical collection of Bugattis, Bentleys and Ferraris. To start the show he provided us with business chic, with grey tweed slapped onto suits and coats. Leather trench coats, yellow printed racing stripes – contrasting with the cars and bomber jackets over suits giving us fast and furious realness.

Slinky material, crystal encrusted and PVC topped mesh Ballgowns also persevered the catwalk, making the models with their natural makeup and natural hair flowing down like they’re hovering on air – the music helping this as a playful classical beat enveloped the room and everyone in it.

Shut up and drive. Rihanna’s SS18 show debuting at NYFW alongside Puma takes inspiration from the race track and roads as the collection completely immerses itself within its theme once again.




The motor-cross runway featuring everything from pink sand dunes to sun-visors saw the likes of Adriana Lima and Adwoa Aboah showcase the new gear. Literally prompting you to buckle up, buckle straps appeared upon jackets, dresses and hats as they were both tightened up and let loose to add an extra layer to the striking garments.

FOR its SS18, Sies Marjan was showing in his atelier with shelves filled with rolls of fabrics acting as a backdrop. Colour is always in the spotlight at Sies Marjan. This season, the sweet hues that we’re used to seeing on delicious macaroons – from pistachio and lemon to raspberry, lavender or orange – were the main attraction. The candy pink seen in the brand’s AW17 collection was already a hit and different shades of pink certainly remained a staple for this collection too. A contrasting coral orange was then used on the lips missing the edges by a distance.



Light fabrics such as silk, chiffon and satin took centre stage. They were made into flowy dresses, jumpsuits and nightwear-inspired separates, both simple and easy-to-wear and more intricately folded ones, were paired with colour-matching peep-toe lace-up ankle boots and metallic strappy sandals.

Accessories and sequins played a huge role in Marc Jacobs’ imaging of a place beyond an urban space, with elegantly wrapped silk turbans making the models heavy, black-lined eyes pop. Retro patterns and colours reminiscent of 1970s interior design were also present such as brown, orange and green. Massively oversized jumpsuits and loosely tailored suits paired with bum bags and gloves added a tourist vibe to the collection.



Jacobs imagined the show as somewhere beyond the urban landscape of bustling New York, but somewhere more exotic and evidently more peaceful. A calming, poignant ending to a busy week at NYFW, enabling the fashion world to take a deep breath before the next storm that is LFW.
