The New York Fashion Week Looks We’re Loving Right Now

As the fashion crowd moves to London, we take a look back at New York Fashion Week and the looks that are already all over our Pinterest boards.

The advent of February can mean a lot of things to different people. The romance of Valentine’s Day, of course. The dead of winter, for those in the northern hemispheres. And then there’s that month-long event that will dictate how we dress in the months to come–it’s time to kick off the series of Fashion Weeks. 

If you follow as many “fashion people” as I do (and I say that with utmost love for the editors and personalities on the coveted front row), then your Instagram feed has been blowing up. New York Fashion Week has kicked off the festivities, and it’s brought with it a plethora of content. There are the obsessively staged candid shots, close-up photos of accessories, and IG stories of models walking down the runway in slow-mo or Boomerang, whichever the preference.

Although the crowds at the shows are just as Pinterest-worthy, the best inspiration is still on the runway. The Fall-Winter 2018 looks might not fit too well with our tropical climate–although I’ve seen many shearling jackets I am dying to wear–but we’ve found more than a few details that could spruce up our closets.

Fall-Winter 2018 looks from A.L.C., Jeremy Scott, Oscar de la Renta, and Tory Burch 

The Pink Ranger

If last year’s color du jour was the sweet and subtle Millenial Pink, this year is all about fuchsia. The hue is unapologetically feminine, and gets a nice visual contrast in a tailored pantsuit like at A.L.C. Tory Burch and Oscar de la Renta embraced the girliness with A-line skirts and flowy fabric. A fun favorite, though, is the Jem and the Holograms-esque looks at Jeremy Scott–we’re totally getting purple tights now!

Fall-Winter 2018 looks from Badgley Mishka, Bottega Venetta, Michael Kors, and Victoria Beckham

Animal Instincts

New York felt more than just an urban jungle on Fashion Week, where a slew of animal prints hit the runway. The look is more Vogue than va-va-voom though, with head-to-toe looks done in more boxy silhouettes–the Victoria Beckham coat is on our must-have list! One look we’ll definitely be copying though is from Bottega Venetta’s menswear collection. A hint of a tiger print under a monochrome pantsuit serves the perfect peek of the animal inside.

Fall-Winter 2018 looks from Red Valentino, Oscar de la Renta, Kate Spade New York, and Grey Jason Wu

Sweater Weather

It seems our cold weather favorite is finally fashionable. We’re loving the oversized sweater and ultra-feminine skirt combo for its cute, cozy and completely wearable appeal. There’s nothing wrong with going for a dark-colored ensemble (the all-black Grey Jason Wu look is perfect for the gloomy days of typhoon season), but floral details as in Oscar de la Renta add a certain sweetness factor.


Fall-Winter 2018 looks from Mara Hoffman, Tom Ford, Norma Kamali, and See by Chloe

The Perfect Puff

True, there’s really no need for thick coats when you’re in the Philippines, but that’s what our year-end international exoduses are for. If you’re traveling to colder climes this year, make sure you’ve got some statement outerwear to keep warm but look cool. New York Fashion Week saw some exaggerated shapes, such as the super poofy long coat from Norma Kamali. Tom Ford’s patched jacket might be more up my alley though–it’s the perfect way to add some personality to our basic travel looks.

Fall-Winter 2018 looks from Diane von Furstenberg

Line We Love: Diane von Furstenberg

We don’t have to explain why DVF is a fashion icon–the wrap dress remains one of the most flattering and chic shapes today. This season, though, we’re raving about the pantsuits. The fashion house sent out a series of printed coordinates that somehow look put-together and effortless at the same time, and I’m thinking this could easily be my new work day uniform. Who else is with me?

The NUSTAR Ballroom, a magnificent venue at the NUSTAR Resort and Casino in Cebu, sets the stage for last night’s first-ever NUSTAR Ball.

Black was the color of night at the Zee table.

Glamorous guests from Manila and Cebu converged at the NUSTAR Ballroom, an exquisite venue within the NUSTAR Resort and Casino in Cebu. The evening unfolded with a seated 5-course dinner. The opulent feast started with Beetroot Salmon Gravlax, adorned with caper berries, caviar, set with delicate edible flowers; and a main course of Compressed Pork Belly with Crackling Skin and Baby Scallops. Another highlight was the auction of coveted items like Dior and YSL handbags, a limited-edition Bulgari watch, and an exclusive 2-night stay in Nustar’s opulent 3-bedroom villa—complete with a private pool and a dedicated butler. The charity evening benefited the Cameleon Association, an NGO based in Iloilo City created in 1997 that developed a global approach to act on the causes and effects of sexual violence against children.

The Qipao As Interpreted by Innovative Filipino Designers: PHILIP RODRIGUEZ

The Qipao, an iconic symbol of Chinese fashion, takes center stage as we celebrate the Lunar New Year of the Wood Dragon. This singular closely-fitted garment crafted from the most opulent silks originated in 1920’s Shanghai. ZEE fashion editor Oj Hofer, has sought the creative insights of some of the Philippines’ most innovative designers for their interpretation of the elegant Qipao, also known as Cheongsam.

Cebu’s esteemed designer, Philip Rodriguez, pays homage to imperial attire with this stunning yellow silk brocade qipao. While adhering to the traditional cheongsam silhouette, Rodriguez infuses a touch of sensuality by incorporating see-through silk tulle panels along the waistline. Known for his timeless designs and culturally respectful creations, Rodriguez’s attention to detail is unparalleled. His embellishments are intricate and exquisite, showcasing impeccable taste and luxurious design without veering into ostentation. Take, for instance, his cheongsam for the Year of the Dragon. While it may seem daring compared to traditional sensibilities, Rodriguez maintains elegance by delicately veiling the wearer’s skin with sheer tulle on the cutout side panels. The front slit of the dress is cautiously calculated to strike the perfect balance between modesty and allure “I design for women who possess sophistication beyond their years, “ Philip emphasizes. “My clothes are crafted to evoke a sense of beauty and allure, leaving her feeling exquisite and confident.” As a seasoned designer, Rodriguez consistently achieves harmony in his designs. His qipao for 2024 seamlessly blends elements of royalty and sensuality, luxury and practicality, reflecting his mastery of the craft and his ability to create pieces that are truly elegant and well-balance.
