New York’s Fashion Week for Fall/Winter 2016 is just around the corner. And you check the latest updates from Fashion Week 2016 Dates ((February 11-18, 2016). Though, before it kicks off, top designers have already expressed their thoughts about the upcoming fashion event and their collections, which they are set to showcase. Be sure to follow the trends and discussions on social media via #NYFW.

In a report by Vogue, men have a lot to look forward to at the event, as big icons such as Hermès, Gucci, and Dolce & Gabbana are ready to show us their latest ranges for the season. It seems Milan’s Collection for Fall 2016 is also bringing back trench coats, furs, some leather, and a little floral for men.

Comfort will also play a big importance to this fashion event, with the appearance of fashion-forward sportswear with huge brands like Nike and Reebok being at the forefront of new tech wear. Big and tall men will also look to take advantage of the many ranges on show, as they now have more offers to choose from, since the landscape of fashion has changed recently. Much like the increased number of plus-size ranges for women, designers are also understanding the need to launch more ‘big and tall’ ranges for their male counterparts. KingSizeDirect says “feeling good in your clothes is the first step to looking good – do not settle for anything less.” Which is why many major brands are recognizing the need for bigger sizes.

Here are some inspiring #NYFW ideas from top designers on their upcoming collections:

1. J.Mendel
Inspired by her recent trip to Tokyo, J. Mendel will present traditional Japanese kimono prints and folding techniques. She added, “I was interested in the play between structure and volume between discipline and feminity.

2. Tome
Known for their contemporary womenswear collections, Tome will emulate Hall’s obsession by illustrating extinct native flora and fauna metal designs in their collections this fall. They will embellish the humble fabrics with Swarovski crystals in the shape of ferns and fish.

3. Tanya Taylor
Tanya Taylor’s collection for fall 2016 will focus on vibrant hues, architectural motifs, and novelty textures. Similar to J. Mendel, Tanya was inspired from her trip to Kenya, Morocco and Tanzania, where she gets to see women wrapped in painterly oversized floral prints, silk knots, and classic plaids.

4. Ground Zero
Established by designer duo, Eri and Philip Chu, the Ground Zero representative said that their fall to winter 2016 collection took inspiration from the traditional oriental embroidery with a mix of their signature street graphic prints “for a fun and spirited collection.”

5. Claudia Li
This season, Claudia Li will focus on showing lightness, texture, and fluidity in their collection. They want to promote the sense of solitary, calmness as well as a feminine spirit in each piece.
