Sitting here in front of my laptop with a spoonful of peanut butter wondering why I’m not at New York Fashion Week, then realizing its because I’m sitting here in front of my laptop…with a spoonful of peanut butter. Though I may not be on the runway, this PB wont stop me from keeping up with the big shots VIA social media. Here are my favorite looks:
ALEXANDER WANG (surprise, surprise)
Yes, I am crowning him king of this week, here’s why:
This week he’s collaborated with the best names out there for the culture. This new #wangsquad is composed of the biggest names on the scene, a masterpiece of rappers and models ft. the Jenners, Vince Staples, A$AP Ferg, Tyga, and Travis Scott generates the perfect vibe.
concluding his Spring/Summer runway show, he debuted his collaborative collection with adidas Originals. Yes, Alex…perfect finale!
“The Adidas Originals by Alexander Wang collaboration subverts boundaries between fashion and streetwear. Flipping brand conventions, Wang rotates the Adidas Originals’ trefoil and “Orriginals” logos upside down, becoming newly and defyingly symbolic.”
Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig’s Marchesa took the trophy of elegance in my book. It may be their smaller size (but big effect) that impresses me most. Chiffon, lace and feathers had me floating.
What I admire most is Tom Ford’s abstract approaches and prominent edge. His appearance this week wasn’t on a catwalk, but a a dinner party at the Four Seasons with celebrities like Julianne Moore, Tom Hanks, Rita Ora and Iman. His styles were dark and full of fur.
