The Best of New York Fashion Week SS14: Victoria Beckham, Jason Wu and Rag & Bone

New York Fashion Week SS14 is well under way and I've been loving so many of the shows from the tents. The main trend I'm seeing (and being drawn to) is definitely 90s glam grunge. I'm imagining Gwen Stefani and Courtney Love rocking many of these styles BITD (back in the day, I may have invented this acronym) and can imagine the Olsens and willowy it girls wearing it today.

Victoria Beckham's collection was, dare I say it and join the already buckling bandwagon, my favourite from NYFW. The peekaboo pleats and geometric details were to die for and the pop of pink within a monochromatic base made me very happy. Mathematician meets tennis pro meets Scandinavian cool.

Jason Wu's understated shapes, diluted hues and light layers is just too cool for school. I love, love, love the feathery grey palette and the oversized and drapey mac - oh so chic. Tailoring mixed with barely there slip dresses gives this collection a grown up grunge feel.

How low will you go? Well Rag & Bone have gone even lower than that. Who doesn't want an exaggerated v-neck cricket jumper in an icy blue? The collection was a mix between statement knitwear, tailored 7/8th length trousers and sheer, dreamy dresses. See what I mean about Courtney Love - you can see her in that dress!

What's been your favourite New York Fashion Week SS14 show?
