Day two of NYFW was a beautiful blur of black and white, sharp clean lines, and major statement footwear (but not the kind you would think).
I started bright and early at the Mercedes-Benz tents at Lincoln Center. Aussie brand Zimmermann presented a full ready-to-wear collection of retro-inspired swimwear, high-waisted trousers, and whimsical dresses using champagne tones and delicate lace.
Downtown, Jenni Kayne presented ten perfectly-tailored looks of suiting, monochrome, subtle prints, and my fave – origami-like skirts. Her signature pointed-toe flats got a makeover with gold tips and ankle straps, a must-have for spring.
The scene was bustling outside of the rag & bone show. When Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington and the rest of the Vogue entourage enter the building, you know it's serious. A semi-'90s throwback with a sporty twist was presented as the models walked around the runway. Overalls, deep-V tennis sweaters, oversized messenger bags, and lace-up platform wedges were simple, striking, and utterly street chic.
Helmut Lang's signature style is always of the black and white, draped and tailored assortment, and spring's collection definitely did not stray. Channeling a tomboyish silhouette, the looks consisted of crop tops, loose trousers, and boxy dresses and skirts.
More amazing show coverage to come. I'm so excited for day 3!
