New York Fashion Week has officially begun; and the excitement in this city is so thick, you can cut it with a 5-inch stiletto. September is my favorite time of year, not only because it's unofficially the January of fashion, but because the spirit in Manhattan is unlike any other. From hopping show to show, and wandering through neighborhood to neighborhood, there is always an opportunity to take both sartorial and scenic shots.
Today, I went to see the sibling designer duo of Nicholas K.
, who created a mystical collection of futuristic-Indian-inspired layers of effortless, muted tones and raw textures. For spring '14, we'll be seeing floor-length caftans, wide-leg trousers, chunky wedge boots, and dare to go there with feathers in your hair.
show always churns out an impressive front row. Jamie Chung, Selita Ebanks, Giuliana Rancic, Monica Rose, and the bevy of bloggers were all at the edge of their seat as the models slyly walked the runway. Black, white, and a mixture of floral prints made up the palette for the collection of deconstructed dresses, cropped and sheer tops, and loosely tailored jackets and trousers. We hope our buyers order every single piece.
On top of style stalking the streets, I explored the city a bit and found myself walking down the Highline and ended up downtown at Pier 26 for the Empire of the Sun show. Quoted from EOTS themselves, "loving every minute, 'cause you make me feel so alive." Here's to the next six days, NYC!
