Spring/Summer 2023 was the best run New York Fashion Week has had in years. With a show schedule packed with fashion crowd favorites (Peter Do, Eckhaus Latta) and unexpected additions (Marni, Fendi), the scene gave us plenty of lewks to look forward to.
From Theophilio's party girl fantasy to AREA's spiky couture, there was no shortage of runway moments that enchanted team Highsnobiety. Dive in: our editors dish on the best ensembles of NYFW.
"The look that opened Peter Do's SS23 menswear presentation showed us all the power of intentional suiting. It was magic." - Willa Bennett, Editor-in-Chief
"The way to my heart is through a giant pair of jeans, and Tibi SS23 — its first stab at menswear! — delivered a masterclass in perfectly baggy, washed-out denim." - Jake Silbert, News Editor
Marc Jacobs x Fendi
"Marc Jacobs and Fendi womenswear director Kim Jones working together again is a reunion made in heaven. And if heaven had a dress code, it would probably be pretty akin to what they presented. I want to be knocking on that door in this crisp look: workwear meets rainwear, with a touch of Jamiroquai up top. Thanks very much, now let me in." - Tayler Willson, Style Writer
Puppets and Puppets
"I used to be so obsessed with sequins that every special occasion called for them: birthdays, Christmas, my imagined future wedding. My love of glittery, sparkly clothing died down for a bit (especially during the pandemic), but Puppets and Puppets resurrected my excitement. Designer Carly Mark's NYC party girl inspo took shape as this iridescent look, a drape-y mini skirt worn with a cut-out shirt. The shirt is my favorite piece, although their updated cookie bags come as a close second." - Elaine YJ Lee, Senior Editor
"Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy meets Dimes Square. Someone buy her a glass of orange wine at Le Dive, stat!" - Alexandra Pauly, Style Writer
"AREA's collection was truly remarkable and further cements their reputation as NYC up-and-comers to keep an eye on. This look is a perfect example of their forward-thinking ideology, mixing couture craftsmanship with a modern sensibility." - Sam Knoll, Fashion Market Editor
"As soon as this look hit the runway, my eyes lit up. A crystal-adorned 'I Love TP' tee and Y2K mini skirt action, topped off with strappy mules? It’s a healthy balance of sexy, chic, and that girl flair, and I’m more than here for it." - Morgan Smith, Style Writer
"Tom Ford’s hot pink suit moment was the perfect way to end NYFW." - Willa Bennett, Editor-in-Chief
