KYE Spring 2016: Funky streetwear with lots of love

Wear one KYE Spring 2016 look and be prepared to be Instagrammed.  Designer Kathleen Kye sent out funky streetwear with eye-catching prints at New York Fashion Week. The word “hate” was emblazoned on shorts, sweatshirts and jackets, as befitting the theme of the collection. According to the show notes, Kye feels that nowadays, the feeling of hatred overwhelms the feelings of love and camaraderie.  With this collection, she wants young people to wear hip and fun clothing that also incorporates current, present-day themes.

Oversized sweatshirts and long beaded skirts hung loosely in easy silhouettes on the women, while a pleated pink and blue printed skirt with matching cropped jacket appeared to be more closely cut. Corset lacing on a gray sweatshirt provided interesting detail to an otherwise basic closet staple. Evening wear in glittery color blocks manifested in a long dress and skirt. One significant look included a paint flecked yellow skirt in beautiful sequins worn with a sweatshirt (of course) and beaded beanie. Funky banana-yellow or black platforms accompanied most outfits. Men received some love and were adorned with oversized pink sweatshirts, sleeveless printed tanks, and printed boardwalk shorts worn with strappy leather platform sandals.
