Even for fashion people, there’s something comforting about fading into anonymity when wearing head-to-toe black. But the return of New York Fashion Week after its 18-month slumber has proven to be as extra as we’d hoped it would be: From puffed-to-perfection sleeves to patchwork leather dresses, showgoers embraced maximalism on day three of shows in the Big Apple.

It was a day of rain and back-to-back events, but attendees didn’t let dreary weather affect their outfits or moods. Cheery florals and voluminous silhouettes covered the streets, helping spread sartorial sunshine all over the city. Other than bold prints and in your-face-embellishments, highlights included a T-shirt with the statement “More dogs, less people,” rainbow Crocs and giant pearls.

Despite a ragged turn-out by big names, there were some rays of hope at New York fashion week, which came to an end on Thursday. Re-branded the American Collections by an exhausted-looking Tom Ford via a publicised Zoom call on the final day of proceedings, the designer postponed his presentation due to a Covid outbreak at his LA studio. The CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) chief promised faithfully to return to New York in September though.

Meanwhile, Ralph Lauren, Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta and Marc Jacobs all opted out of NYFW’s scheduled week. Yet bold, beautiful offerings still shook us home-front-row journalists awake, with Gabriela Hearst and Ulla Johnson stealing the crowns from the old-school absentees.
