After six whirlwind days, my Fashion Week adventue has come to a close. But before I collapse into bed, I'd like to post the remaining photos I took at various presentations, shows and parties. Here we go:
The woman with the microphone is Brazilian singer Bebel Gilberto, covering Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall." This would've been weird in any other instance, but she managed to turn it into a rousing ballad with only a loose connection to the original song. I dug it.
I wasn't blown away by the collection. It felt pretty run-of-the-mill. Once again, tons of oranges and sheers, which were all over the runway this week.
Classic, chic, expensive looks. A few sheers thrown in, and red rather than orange. I'm glad I saw this show because the very next day a French journalist interviewed me on the plaza in front of Lincoln Center about my thoughts on French designers. Theallet was fresh in my mind!
Bebe and Elle magazine threw a super fun afterparty at the Griffin hotel the other night. I loved the fashion-themed cocktails (eg. Stoli-raz Couture), massive chandelier and, of course, all of the fabulously stylish attendees.
This was the only swimwear show I saw all week (maybe the only one there was?), and it was pretty impressive. It's hard not to respect someone who can come up with that many creative variations on a bathing suit. And matching hats and coverups to boot!
Andy & Debb
Korean design duo Andy & Debb showed a lovely collection of elegant skirts, tops, dresses and pantsuits, many of which wouldn't be out of place in the office. I liked the muted grays, pinks and neutrals and the geometric shapes found on several of the garments.
That marks the end of Fashion Week for me! I'll plan to post a trend recap as soon as I catch my bearings. Anything else you'd like to see? I'm always open to suggestions!
