Ok, a little more text today than usual, but it is FW love!
SO, NYFW kicked off and besides the excitement about the outfits off the catwalk (still obsessing about beautiful Miss Zhang) , it is time to focus on what has been happening ON the catwalk.
Let's start with the show that everybody is always excited about: The genius Alexander Wang.
I stayed up juts to wait for Style.com to upload the pictures and I will admit first 5 looks were a big downer for me: 1st we have seen it before, 2nd I was caught by a panic that we will be seeing 40 looks that feel indifferent.Luckily somewhere about look 6-7-8 something started to happen and it culminated in a show that has been on everyone's Insta that moment: the boys boxershorts thing and the amazing matching shirt, and... It was love, it was love, at first sight. I realized my heart rate has raised enormously and my palms were sweaty while I waited for rest of the looks to be uploaded.The 90's vibe, the branded laser-cut leather. It was one BANG look after another.
The lovely thing about the whole show was that it didn't feel gimmicky. There were street pieces, and than there were wardrobe staples. I want them all.
The second show that made my heart skip a beat was Altuzarra. Now, he usually designes for the hottest girls in town, but although I loved AW13, it felt a little constrained, while SS14 was much more loose, and much hotter. Hotness, I believe is a good summary for the whole show.And those mules!!Haven't I told you that the mules are going to be big next summer...?
...When it comes to the newer designers I loved the swedish Rodebjer. I've seen some bits and pieces of their collection in the magazines, but SS14 really stood out for my part. It had the scandinavian cool that we love up here in the North, mixed with New York downtown chic. A major favorite next season, and I'll bet they will have much more to come with over the years...
So, what do you think so far?
