NYFW September 2021 – Day Five
Abrima Erwiah and Rosario Dawson’s STUDIO 189 collection was too relaxed for even a pair of shoes. Every model was barefoot in loose, pattern-heavy, comfort wear. Love this stuff for around the house. The show included singers, musicians, some spoken word, and a moment of remembrance for 9/11.
It was a barefoot kind of day because halfway through the RODARTE outdoor presentation, the models were suddenly shoeless, appearing in the same long, silky, full cut frock, one after the other, like some sort of angelic cult. It was kind of weird to see twenty-five models all wearing the same dress. I want to claim that I’ve never seen that in a show before. But I’m sure it’s probably not true.
ANNA SUI, at Indochine, was pure fun! We sipped the special cocktail designed for the occasion as she presented a relaxed, colorful, beachy kinda show. The caftans, bikini tops and bottoms, dusters, and shorts and rompers got lots of positive feedback from the audience. Er’body’s ready for a vacation. She took us to the tropics, if only for a few minutes. Thanks, girlfriend.
JONATHAN SIMKHAI offered up soft and easy with lots of fringe. His palette was pastel-sweet mostly, but the necklines were often complex, with extra straps and halters, which made things interesting.
The day was over early. And no parties were on my agenda (none to make me redress and come back out for) so I ordered in and watched the film and videos on NYFW.com. BRONX AND BANCO were back on the rooftop and sexy as hell, LORING was beautifully shot, offering a cool, old movie vibe, and DES PIERROT, with funky club wear, did their entire video in a grungy unisex bathroom. There’s just so much talent on the scene these days who would never get a shot if it wasn’t for this site. Bravo! DAY SIX…
