With New York Fashion Week under way, we’re highlighting the new Fall/Winter 2020 collections being shown. Here, you’ll find our favorite details from Brock Collection, Zadig & Voltaire, and Chocheng.
Midnight walks in English gardens, hints of equestrian garb, and a feeling of being transported to a time gone by, all come to mind when viewing Brock Collection’s newest designs. An elevated collection composed of established codes and new influences included updated tailoring, leather, and outerwear, seen accompanying a selection of romantic dresses. Delicate colors like burnt cherry, shadowy green, off-white, and sky blue offered a vintage air to a selection of prints like soft florals and plaid. Each look was styled with a transparent veil—including looks like a black tulle tiered dress styled with a blazer, and tied at the waist with a velvet ribbon; a floaty sepia-hued floral gown; and a pair of yellow plaid pants and matching overcoat, worn with a white sweater.
Chocheng looked to the 1960 film The Apartment, specifically Shirley Maclaine’s styling and iconic press photo shot wearing a tuxedo, for its Fall/Winter 2020 collection. Chocheng interspersed traditional British tailoring with a nod to the disco movement in a palette of black, white, pink, and green. Comprised almost entirely of dresses and skirts, the silhouettes included clean, updated takes on retro skirt suits, knee-length dresses, and several floor-length gowns. Highlights included a pink and green blouse belted at the waist and worn with a black pencil skirt; a black skirt and top with a peter pan collar and large neck bow; and a black jumpsuit with a glittering bodice, voluminous ruffled detail at the shoulders, and train.
Zadig & Voltaire’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection played a game of opposites—Sweden in the 1970s and Paris today, sensuality and androgyny, rock ’n’ roll and classic tweed. Oversized tailoring and outerwear styles were paired with softer, sleeker garments, like a denim puffer coat worn with a mini skirt, over-the-knee leather boots, and a blouse that tied at the neck. Prints and graphics took cues from past eras, including colorful florals and equestrian plaid, in a mixture of bright and muted earth tones of blue, sage green, burgundy, and brown. Standout pieces included a racing stripe logo turtleneck sweater, worn with black leather pants; an amply cut blazer and matching skirt, styled with a denim button-up and belt bag; and a red and pink paisley printed top, worn over leather trousers.
