Like all good things, New York Fashion Week has come to an end. I enjoyed previewing the latest collections and being introduced to some new-to-me designers (you can catch up with my NYFW recaps here and here).
Last Wednesday, I previewed the fall/winter 2016 collection from Jasmine Chong. The collection marries femininity and functionality, while embracing earth tones. It was a traditional runway show composed of flowy dresses, and velvet pieces in navy, neutral, and olive shades. A certain silk velvet runway gown in slate was a show-stopper for me. I loved the texture and the way it moved on the runway.
If gowns aren’t quite your thing (I hear ya. I would have no place to wear one, either), Jasmine Chong’s line included a number of separate pieces that I could see adding to my closet. The archer jacket in midnight, the silk velvet Catherine pant in bark, and the Land & Sea winged shirt with washed silk and silk organza are pieces that would be on major repeat for me.
I appreciated the neutral tones and mix of textures that are evident throughout this collection. Here are a few of my favorite looks:
Which is your favorite look from the collection?
