Day One of Fashion Week has this culture twirling in a field of green, glacier mountains behind us and all the vroom one can muster. Here’s a look at what was loved.
What is fashion if not the street. Rachel Comey answers that with a SS17 show on the streets of New York literally. Gracing the pavement outside Crosby Street Hotel, she gave fashion characters and lifestyle actions that are as universal as clothes themselves. From going to the library, a fundraiser or even a conference, she outfits them all. And of course, if one is going to Crosby Street Hotel the fits can work for a coffee too.
NOON BY NOOR
Onesies are bae and one of my favorite pieces. This is sheer brilliance, look at that waist line. This is something that can be pumped up with pumps literally, or with a low kick for a meeting right in a chic cafe.
The strings were music to the ears. Black-tie musicians playing as Yohan Kim’s Yohanix, Heejin Kim’s Kimmy J, and Younhee Park’s Greedilous showed their collections. Youth, layers and soft plush by way of girlhood charm is alive. And well.
The jean is real.
Empire of the Sun’s ‘High and Low ‘played during the runway where afros and soft prints walked. Inkings of native culture, combinations of urban with modern charm inspired the lifestyle of a girl who waxes poetic between multiple personalities, in the most agreeable way.
The hair set off the two-piece, the collared print shirts and an attitude of self-awareness in dressing in Selman’s SS17 efforts.
The feel of femininity tailored and the alt decision of boyish charm in structured garments feels like the right kind of sale to the heart, of course.
If there are any gaps to fill in a void of something timeless, Marissa Webb came in and won a day that was already winning. Her soft belts, just right jackets, deep suiting and a checkered dress to dream of was love on the brain.
