But also some clothes.
Examples include Olivia Cheng’s organically preserved rose top and skirt at Dauphinette, and her black hooded coat with sparkling pearl buttons that spell “New York”. Area’s rhinestone-speckled denim schoolgirl suit. Puppy & Puppet print and Frankenstein weaves stitched together.
The mermaid dress reinvention, courtesy of Joseph Altuzarra, showcases the beautiful combination of urban sailors and mermaids in pleated leather jackets and leather-collared navy wool coats. sheep; orange watercolor and burgundy prints and fish-scale knit covers, all outfitted with treasure chest coins and cow shells. Finally, two huge cloaks made of gold and sequins rustled, rustling trash cans announcing their presence long before their arrival.
As an entry concept (a dress with its own built-in soundtrack!), it just fits Peter Do’s re-creation of the suit in black, white, beige and gray, the remaining colors remaining. monochromatic or interlaced in contrasting folds.
Sleeves are joined open at seams to create pleated arms; cropped bolero shrugs in ribbed weave with extra long sleeves on top of tuxedo shirts; low-rise calf-length trousers; and evening wear is simply a false front of a lapel, extending to the floor. Fastened with the thinnest black leather strap at the waist, they cut their backs and arms, and were wrapped in cloaks that hung loosely over their shoulders and hung at the elbows like a stolen opera.
The result is not a tux, not a cape – but something else.
Goodbye to all of that
But good taste means a certain New York designer seems increasingly out of place; a relic of an era of less crisis. That’s why Brandon Maxwell’s emotional tribute to his grandmother, now suffering from Alzheimer’s, seems like such a meaningful metaphor. A goodbye not just to one person, but to all that black and white, woven cables and crushed silk, tight waistlines and mid-autumn silhouettes.
That’s why Jason Wu’s light-hearted romance, with its bows and faded botanical flowers atop sporty ball gowns and Bermuda shorts, seems smothered by Their noble decency, and Wes Gordon’s rainbow-colored parade of full gowns, tulle cocktail dresses and floral coats at Carolina Herrera looked out of place without space. the safety of a gala dinner.
