Amidst the madness of another hectic Fashion Week, Sunday always serves as a sort of nostalgic refuge. Everyone seems to take things a little slower and themselves a little less serious. These sentiments seem to have made their way onto the catwalk as we all sipped our lattes beneath oversized glasses and the remnants of champagne from the night before. The day was eclectic and inspiring, building like a slow bravado beneath a modern symphony of momentum.

Victoria Beckham opened the day with progressive, street wear infused pieces that were just as elegant as they were biting. The day carried on much the same as we watched ultra cool designs march down the runway to the beat of euphoric , sometime primitive sounds. Brands such as Public School and Derek Lam turned up the bass a bit louder as each presented richly robust urban inspired garments. It seems that everyone had been inspired by elements that were a bit more gritty.
Being ‘cool’ was the tagline of the day. The styling was always slightly undone and the fit was taunt to hang just so. A vibrant floral dress swaying elegantly below an oversized chevron inspired sweater flowed across the runway at Thakoon while evening inspired active wear sauntered confidently along at Tim Coppens.Â DVF even offered her own take on the trend presenting her usual assortment of wrap dresses and bold colorful prints, but this time alongside cuts that darted a little deeper and at just the right places.
