70s style at NYFW Fall 2018

While the expression, "everything old is new again" is often overused, let's make an exception for New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2018. Paying homage to style elements from the glam rock and disco era, many designers used the 1970s as a muse for their collections. Don't be alarmed, the pieces do not look dated. Instead, many are fresh, exciting and eminently wearable. Below is a summary of looks epitomizing 70s style and influence.

1. Tom Ford sent metallic blazers down the runway that were sleek, sexy and modern. Playing up texture, luxurious suede jackets and fur-lined coats made a bold showing on the runway as well. Think Studio 54 glamour and excess.

2. Pyer Moss used exaggerated flared-leg pants to punctuate western wear creating a wild-west-meets-city motif. Flared-leg pants and leisure suits are synonymous with the 70s, Moss used a decidedly bold approach to draw attention to proportions and silhouettes. Moss head designer Kerby Jean-Raymond is positioning his streetwear collection to move beyond cult status.
