With Team SPICE on ground at New York Fashion Week, we couldn’t help but share a snippet of our trip and how better to do that, than in style? See below presenter Mercedes Benson’s style diary – the brilliant looks she brought with her to the Big Apple…
Despite what felt like sub-Antarctic weather conditions, New York Fashion Week didn’t fail to disappoint. With celebrities such as Solange and Zendaya, and celebrity stylist June Ambrose in attendance, the star count was definitely on a high throughout the week, but for us at SPICE, it was all about the street style.
We were treated to colourful furs, boot envy, creative layering and menswear tailoring that was perfect for the female form – and the street style amidst the Lincoln Centre was of a vibrant and eclectic selection, with the natives of New York constantly adding a twist on well-known catwalk trends. Most we interviewed considered themselves to be a trendsetter and rightly so, as their individuality oozed through their style, alongside that all important self-confidence.
