Lines and angles were particularly important in New York; Sixties stripes and asymmetric black geometry deceived the eye and balanced retro fun with mathematical futurism.

Micro-trends can often be the most pivotal in terms of styling; grown-up gladiator sandals and the contemporary application of sheer fabrics were two such examples seen at NYFW.
