URBAN COOL

New York fashion, people say, is the epitome of working-woman chic: functional, everyday-friendly and practical. To some, this could mean austere, but the exciting Fall/Winter 2016 collections turn this perception on its head.

Michael Kors – king of lifestyle dressing – for example has put a decidedly playful, ’60s spin on the luxurious basics he’s so famous for. Think swingy A-line coats, shifts and miniskirts in lilac, embellished with a flurry of feathers or an armour-like metallic veneer. Meanwhile, the industry’s doyennes of casual elegance, Diane von Furstenberg and Tory Burch, have imbued sophisticated dresses and separates with the nostalgic beatnik looks of the ’70s.

Bringing the city’s urban cool to life are brands such as Coach, which has reinvented Wild West dressing by giving it a twist of collegiate charm, and 3.1 Phillip Lim, with its new romantic spin on the moto babe.

New York fashion may just be the true measure of every stylish career woman – although she has many facets. Just ask the city’s gregarious style icon Leandra Medine, whose personal look is part-street and part-lounge, peppered with feminine eclecticism.
