NYFW Part 2



Complex Geometries

This was Complex Geometries' first runway presentation, and though they only showed 14 looks, each look was designed to create as much impact as possible. Utilitizing a signature sparse color palette, they instead focused on texture and form. Waffle knits and fringe provide a subtle contrast to the plain jersey pieces. I am a diehard Complex Geometries fan, and while they didn't really push the envelope here, I look forward to their future collections. PS: Please use some ethnic models next time. Not everyone in the world is white, you know.



Calvin Klein

The inimitable Lara Stone has an exclusive contract with Calvin Klein this season and this was the only show we are going to see her walk in. As many of you know, Lara Stone is my favorite model, so I had to pay special attention to this. We've been presented with a collection that hearkens back to the glory days of 90s-era minimalism. Back when Jil Sander was a household name, when Yohji Yamamoto reigned supreme, even Chanel was experimenting in scaling back its, um, ubiquitous CC logo. Shift dresses with high crew necks and blunt shoulders aren't anything new, but they feel so fresh when compared with the Balmain shoulder and Wang draped goddess v-necks we've been subjected to for the past several seasons. Calvin Klein reminds us how special things can be when you take it down a notch.
