Leather, lace, and bold prints filled the runways this season at the New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 event. From leather shorts to sheer dresses to lose, flowing silhouettes, this year designer’s collections were far from florals for spring. We picked out the top collections from the week, as well as the best behind the scenes photos on social media!
Nicole Miller’s graffiti inspired collection had a totally 80s vibe that we loved. The neon, bold patterns paired with leather jackets is the perfect collection for the Edgy Chic.

Fringe, ruffles, lace, and sheer, Jason Wu stunned us all with his many fabric manipulations used throughout the collection.
Lauren Conrad tends to speak to the inner Romantic Chic gal. Pastels, lace, and chiffon grazed the LC runway and we wouldn’t expect anything less.
DVF took a step away from her iconic wrap dress and presented fashion week with bold prints, rompers, jumpers, and matching sets. Celebrities such as Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid, and Karlie Kloss all marched down the runway at this year’s show.
Gingham plaid played a big role in Victoria Beckham’s SS ’16 collection. White garments mixed with plaid, orange, and bold patterns was the trend—definitely a collection aimed for the Sporty Chic.
Boho was the theme for Tommy Hilfiger’s collection. The almost-Rasta inspired collection was filled with maxi dresses, flowy pants, and swim suits. Images from the finale of the models walking through a “man-made lake” took over Instagram.
The mix of sporty and edgy was seen throughout this years collection from Rag & Bone. Models walked wearing garments with asymmetrical hemlines, cut-outs and leather all paired with sneakers or gladiator sandals.
The Parabal Gurung spring collection had longer skirts and gowns. Many of the garments were detailed with fringe, embroidered beading, and some element of sheer fabric. The collection overall had a byzantine aesthetic.
Long jackets over midi-dresses was a common trend on the MK runway. We absolutely loved the embroidered flower detail used throughout the collection.
The all-American brand went predictably with floral patterns for spring but their use of colors kept us interested. The leather and suede materials used in a spring collection had us inspired.
With new head designers, Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow, DKNY presented a new aesthetic with their Spring/Summer collections. Edgy is one word to describe the designs.
Narcico Rodrigues presented what seemed to be a minimalist looking collection, but the intricacy was all in the smaller details—the playful hemlines of this collection kept many interested.
