Hound & Hare – Jen Kao

Runway Spring / Summer 2014

Set within the breathtaking Skylight at Moynihan Station, Jen Kao’s Hound & Hare was a playful exchange between the strong, almost masculine, looks that opened the show and the softer, more feminine, pieces that closed it. Throughout, we find the hound represented by the work-wear inspired sturdy denim pieces, the towering mules and woven raffia, while the hare manifested in such items as the wispy georgette sheath dress – gussied up with a pretty dahlia print picked up in a silk cotton dévoré – and the airy black crêpe de chine pants that floated down the runway (seriously they floated, just watch).

Kao’s metaphor extended beyond merely the clothes however, coming to life in the tresses of the models that swayed to the same pace as the hounds that trotted down the runway beside them. The setting then, a simulacrum of the hare, which flitted about in the soft filtered lighting, rustling gently as a cool breeze amongst the suspended curtains that swayed ever so gently overhead. If we had to describe the show with just one word, it would be “refreshing”.

And, as it bears repeating, did we mention there were puppies!?

Nellie Partow

Spring / Summer 2014 Collection Presentation

One of our favorites this season, Nellie Partow’s intimately held presentation was defined by crisp tailoring with a soft, feminine feel. We especially loved the hand knit silk crochet vest, the black crepe dress with cutout detail, the foil jacquard blouse and of course, the pièce de résistance, the smoke eel skin coat.

Also, you may have noticed the slight delay in our Fashion Week coverage this season. With everyone so caught up in the frenzy of immediate digital acessibility, we opted to forgo digital photography all together. Rather than regurgitate content you’ll see everywhere else, we wanted to bring a little magic to the experience and create something a little less clinical. By shooting almost exclusively on film this season, we hoped to capture not only the clothes, but also the sense of light, space, and wonder that these designers create as they select their venues and craft their shows.

We hope and encourage our readers to pause and appreciate the beauty of fashion that is so often lost in our digital universe where instant gratification reigns supreme.

We hope you enjoy and stay tuned for more.

Isabel Marant for H&M

Isabel Marant pour H&M

C’est comme un rêve!

Your dreams just came true! H&M has announced their next designer collaborator, Isabel Marant. “I aim at creating something real, that women want to wear in their everyday lives, with a certain carelessness, which I think is very Parisian,” Marant said. “You dress up, but do not pay too much attention and still look sexy. The collection is infused with this kind of easiness and attitude.” H&M will start selling Maran’t designs for women and men (yup, you read that right!) November 14, 2013. We’ll be counting down the days!
