What She Wore During New York Fashion Week – Day Four
Day Four started with ADEAM’s presentation at Spring Studios. Not a whole lot stood out for me there. A long denim wrap skirt. Coats with the extra-extra-wide lapels. After that it’s all a blur. CHRISTIAN SIRIANO at Rockerfeller Center was hit and miss, too. More misses than hits. But the diversity on so many runways this season has everything to do with him so he gets a pass. This season. I hauled ass across town for JONATHAN SIMKHAI show at Industria studio. His presentation of lace, denim and long satiny slip dresses over soft, plaid trousers was an interesting combo. And Mr. BRANDON MAXWELL. He’s got his mind right after last season’s west Texas hoedown show. The presentation at Penn Station was clean, chic, sophisticated and sexy, in grown-folk colors. Sometimes you CAN’T go home again, Brandon! JOHN ELLIOTT’s show at the Brooklyn Navy Yard was my first off the Rock this season. Collabs are great, but he’s hooked up with Caterpiller construction and utility-worker chic was the theme. There’s a market. Sure. I just never thought I’d see it on the runway during Fashion Week.
