Yesterday was one of those glorious days where my shows didn’t start until the afternoon, which means I could sleep in…or I could get work done and go to Bergdorfs. Option 2 happened. Highlights of the day: I wore a sequin sweatsuit, got a sick pair of Charlotte Olympia flats, and hung out with my girl Miss Ladyfinger. Then onto my first show…
Ever since discovering Illesteva on Net-a-Porter some months ago, I’ve been hooked. So I was especially excited to attend their presentation Sunday afternoon at Milk Studios. I had never been to an eyewear presentation before so I wasn’t sure what to expect but it definitely wasn’t this…
My only mens show so far at fashion week, Carlos Campos definitely is one to watch in menswear. He’s one of the CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund finalists this year (and if you haven’t watched the Making The Cut documentary, I highly recommend doing so…like now) and I’m very excited to see where this takes him.
When it comes to menswear, it really just needs clean lines and a great fit (sounds easy but it’s far from). Having some pops of color is a bonus. Carlos did it all perfectly by choosing well tailored coats and fitted jackets in neutrals like brown, camel and navy with various shades of maroon, burgundy and tangerine throughout. This burgundy color seems to be THE choice for Fall 2012 and I think it’s a great option for menswear as well.
On Sunday I attended various events at milk studios, including a jewelry presentation from Erickson Beamon and Anndra Neen, along with The Lake & Stars, Reece Hudson, and Katie Gallagher.
My absolute favorite was Erickson Beamon. The models were wearing feathered outfits and avant-garde makeup with the stunning jewelry surrounding in this “garden-esque” setup.
And having nothing to do with these collections, I came across this girl on my way into Anndra Neen with the sickest studded jacket…ever.
Here’s a look at Anndra Neen.
My favorite bag I saw at Reece Hudson (of course, with a tassel).
My favorite look from Katie Gallagher [middle], which is weird because I normally hate red, especially paired with black…but I love this silhouette. Dark yet intriguing…
