New York fashion week maybe over, but it came with a lot of optimism from the designers. For starters, There were a lot of colors, dispelling the notion that designers in New York only create black clothes. Also, there was a sense of ease. The vibe was very calm and not as contrived as previous seasons.

We have rounded up the top five shows for the spring 2017 season in New York. They are as follows:

Why: Don’t be fooled by the seemingly simple way the clothes look. His lines are architecturally engineered. Business of fashion’s Tim Blanks put it best: “seemed simple, but not seamed simple”.

Why: Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim focused heavily on daywear, proposing deconstructed pinstripes and sequins for dawn. It was a lovely addition to their brand of elevated casual clothes.

Why: You could tell that fashion’s favorite design duo, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, had a lot of fun creating this collection. That doesn’t mean they slacked in their brand of luxurious experimentation.
2.  DKNY

Why: Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne sent out the coolest-looking girls throughout the week. Their girls looked futuristic and sporty and street and dystopian all at the same time. Who wouldn’t want to look like that?

Why: With the volumized structure of the clothes and the dreamy palette that Josep Font sent out, why not?
