NYFW Part Two: The Long and Hot Pants of It

Heading onto the West Side last week, I was talking to one of my editor friends about fashion week in general and what her favorite shows were so far. She didn’t surprise me when she said Rag and Bone, as that show was one of my favorites as well. The desgining duo of David Neville and Marcus Wainwright have one of the most well-received brands both editorially, and the among the masses. What made the collection shoppable yet on target, was the layering effects, appropriate and specific, yet not overdone. See drapey-hoods, blazers, striped button-downs. Rag and Bone continues to offer the coolest, most contemporary brand around town season after season. Without missing a beat, their dead-on style is clear-on proof that these guys have true talent and clarity. The longer length voluminous shorts with sporty details will be on everybody’s thighs come Spring. Just wait and see. Second one down, girl in kelly green cracked leather skirt, is “my look.”

Back at the tents, over at Joy Cioci, I felt like I was watching synchronized swimming Olympic-style, sans pool. Harking back to the 1920’s, lace headwraps on the models looked like deconstructed bathing caps from afar. Lace and sheer dresses, overlays, and water prints on cool board shorts were the theme du jour. Playing it low-key, with models’ feet playing around in the sand, I was definitely feeling Joy’s wavy vibe.

And that is all I have for you—–more tent update next week. In the meantime, I can’t say see you at the tents anymore. So, Happy Saturday! xo
