Altuzarra, Carolina Herrera, Lapointe and more — meet the best NYFW Spring 2024 looks that have me already ready for next season.
New York Fashion Week has been experiencing a bit of an identity crisis over the last few years but it feels like there’s an emergence of rising talent primed for big things to come.
Be it Laquan Smith, Collina Strada or Nardos — there are definitely new names on our tongues as we dissect and reflect on the best looks of the season. It’s a comforting thought, indeed, as there’s really only so many standard collections of classics Michael Kors Collection can send our way before things start to feel a bit (or a lot) stale. We also are witnessing in real time Wes Gordon carry the torch at Carolina Herrera that adds a level of quality we have’t really seen on the New York fashion circuit since the passing of the late (and great) Oscar de la Renta.
Best NYFW Spring 2024 Looks
With new names on the schedule who are not afraid to push the envelope and take risks — the best NYFW Spring 2024 looks really have show a tremendous amount of range.
Even still, it was a lighter schedule this season with Anna Sui opting for a lookbook and brands like Rodarte opting to go it their own way. The Olsen twins swapped over to Paris Fashion Week and altogether, it was a schedule that let the new talent shine and introduce themselves to onlookers who might otherwise be interested in what Marc Jacobs was cooking.
If we take a step back to evaluate the collections as a whole they can be filed into two camps:
- Returning to the classics
- Unapologetically extra
There really was little in between as we saw styles reminiscent of 1990s Calvin Klein all the rage at labels like 3.1 Phillip Lim and then vibrant, loud prints at Collina Strada — and even Ralph Lauren. (Who saw that coming?)
And while the New York Fashion Week schedule became somewhat forgotten as fashion month rolled on because of the lavish collections shown on the European runways of Milan and Paris, the collections feature a lot excellent options for urban ready-to-wear come next season.
The Best NYFW SPRING 2024 Looks
We’re so accustomed to seeing finale bridal looks grace the haute couture collections but from Altuzarra? It was an unexpected treat and definitely among the best NYFW Spring 2024 looks.
Wes Gordan really has been doing a phenomenal job as Carolina Herrera’s successor and it’s a treat to see what he’ll serve up each season. As the runways were overflowing with black it was really lovely to see a this charming a-line gown with a perfectly-apt-for-spring lavender sash at the waist.
Before debuting her final collection at the reins of Chloe, Gabriela Hearst’s namesake label charged the Big Apple runway with maybe her most cool-girl collection to date. It’s nice to see her set aside the heavier pieces in favor of sleek looks like this form-fitting sheer, mesh, maxi dress.
Rose gold that shimmers? Yes, please.
This black asymmetrical midi dress is perfect elegance with an edge.
Nardos Imam is a rising talent whose career originated from Dallas, Texas. Watching her talent emerge on the runway seasonally is a delight and while this shapely, A-line mini dress is no doubt among the best NYFW Spring 2024 looks it feels as though it belongs on the haute couture runways in Paris.
Sartorially speaking, yes – Proenza Schoulder delivered some of the best NYFW Spring 2024 looks but they also made me want to live in the clouds.
Before fashion month kicked off, if you told me I’d be including Ralph Lauren harem pants and a mixed-print halter top among the Best NYFW Spring 2024 looks — I would not believe you. And yet, it works!
Co-founders Sarah Staudinger and George Augusto have been embracing cerulean over the last couple years in a way that would warm Miranda Priestley’s hardened heart and they’re not letting up!
Could the color be more delicious?
