While I wasn’t able to attend New York Fashion Week due to school and prior commitments, I have been keeping up with all the shows via live feeds and social media. So this week, I will be bringing you #BTGFashionWeek Reviews. This series will include my top looks and reviews from some of my favorite shows! We’re kicking it off with Perry Ellis and their presentation of their Fall/Winter 2015 line this past week.
I am in LOVE with the knits in these Perry Ellis Collections! The army green color in look 1 is one to look out for this spring and in the fall! It’s a color that is growing on me more and more.
There was something in the shade of brown of look 2 that caught my attention. The combination of the mustard and brown is a nice touch. The cut of the blazer and pants is also very well done. A piece that you will notice in this look and every other look that walked down the runway is the boots (shown in various colors). The boot trend has taken of lately and it looks like it will continue. I will definitely be getting my hands on a pair or two of these!
Looks 3, 4, and 8 show great color blocking and color combinations! Look 4 is something completely different than I would normally wear, but I would still give it a shot. I really like the pop of color from the red and blue. The Y shape that is created by the blue in look 8 is very unique! I want this knit in my closet ASAP.
The coat in look 5 was a piece I drooled over! The image lacks to show the movement the coat had going down the runway. The length of the coat seems like it would be a perfect for me. The inside detailing of the liner is also a great pop to see as you walk.
These collections really showed the impeccable attention to detail by Perry Ellis. Look 6 definitely shows that with the trim along the side of pants. From the front, they look like regular great fitting Perry Ellis pants, but as soon as the model turned to walk back down the runway, the camera gave us a look at the red and blue trim.
Look 7 is a simple yet elegant look. Again, the cut of the suit and the color are great, but what really caught my attention was the shirt. The color combination and subtle lines make you want a second look.
Looks 9 and 10 were some of my favorites because this year a big topic was “winter whites.” I never really found the perfect white knit, but these seem to be ones that I would add to my closet. The different necks and the size in the actual knots within the sweaters are what make these stand out from the rest.
One of the pieces that isn’t shown in these pictures is the over the shoulder bag that was featured in two colors. The structure and size of it are why I could see myself carrying it.
Perry Ellis did a great job at monochromatic looks (a look I am still working on perfecting), pops of color within their layering, and killer color combinations! Check out the rest of the Perry Ellis show here: Perry Ellis FW ’15 Show
