New York Fashion Week is here!
And while the runways have been hot, a lot of the buzz is happening away from the official NYFW’s shows – some of it’s not even happening in New York!
The stars showed up en masse for the Saint Laurent Show at the Palladium in Los Angeles. GQ floated the rumor that it might be Hedi Slimane’s last show as Creative Director. Things that make you go, “Hmm…” I’m dying over the gold boots and other metallic pieces – you can never have too much glitz and glam for my taste. It was all very rock n’ roll, complete with a performance by Joan Jett at the end of the night. You can watch the entire show here.
The Yeezy show was more like a concert as West debuted his new album and packed Madison Square Garden in an event that fell outside the official NYFW scope. I don’t want to give myself too much credit, but I really think I nailed my description of Kim and Kanye’s signature style in my post yesterday. The entire Kardashian clan showed up at the Yeezy show in hyperluxe fabrics and furs in various shades of winter white while Kanye rocked a faux spray-painted tee, a homage to his mom and Kim’s dad. I’m not even sure how to describe the Yeezy line. It’s definitely interesting, but I’m going to leave this one to the professionals to parse. I know when I’m in over my head.
This show might not be getting as much press, but it’s one of my favorites so far – and it was the first! Nicholas K had the 9am spot on 11 Feb and the bar was set high, in my opinion. I love the “urban nomad” look. It’s as if the Mad Max universe was suddenly very, very posh. The brother and sister designer pair weren’t even on my radar, but now that I’ve found them, I’ll certainly be paying more attention!
