And here comes part two of my brief fashion week recap. Starting off with Charlotte Ronson’s AW14 presentation, which was also one of my highlights. I loved how she combined the boxy sweaters and clean lines with the more girly details of floral dresses and bright patterns. Felt a lot like me.
Desigual was a surprisingly good show. Surprsingly, I say, because Desigual is about as far from my style as you can get. But the happiness and the playfulness of the models; jumping and dancing around on the catwalk, really made it into one of my favorites during this fashion week.
And at theArt Institutessome of the highlights included something/someone that looked like a modern, avant garde take on the tin man from Wizard of Oz, as well as a hot pink hurricane.
Since I myself sometimes find it a bit, uhm dare I say it, boring to go through post on post on post of each and every show that each and every blogger has been to after the fashion weeks have come and gone, I thought I would be kind to you (if you feel the same as I do about it, that is) and just do two posts recapping my show-going-adventures.
So here are some of my favorite snaps from the first two shows I went to during NYFW.
There was a lot of fur, mixed with glitter and metallics at the Son Jung Wan AW14 show at the Pavillon at Lincoln Center (what a beautiful venue for a fashion show by the way), I especially loved the accessories and styling for this show. The metallic in both the shoes and the lipstick and the sleek hairdos. Also the fur, even though I would opt for faux.
Erin Fetherson held her presentation at the W Hotel and it was one of the best ones I went to during fashion week this yea. Everything appealed like candy to my eyes and I loved the vintage setting and feel to it, you can’t hear it now but 20s style music was playing in the background and champagne was flowing and it felt like a mix of being in a Mad Men episode and at a party at the Gatsby household.
What do you think about these shows and this fashion week in overall? Great? Awful? Some-weird-but-true-in-between?
And, stay tuned for part deux.
This weekend has been one of those amazing weekends that one only can have after a long, cold, snowy, dark winter. The sun was out; the winds were in fact mild and that beautiful thing that happens on the first days of spring happened, people sort of stepped out of their winter caves, they were smiling, they were super happy: almost terrifyingly happy. Can honestly so many people be so very happy at once? Especially in a usually pretty solemn, kept-together city like New York.
I spent the Saturday, also mostly smiling, walking the High Line down to Greenwich/West Village where Sabina and me enjoyed our favorite cupcakes from Magnolia whilst sitting on a Perry Street staircase (ya ya, don’t judge us for the extreme Sex and the City-ness of this day).
I was also wearing my new coat from one of my fav online stores, Koshka, and it’s just the perfect in-between-season-jacket.
