NYFW Recap: (9/9/13 - 9/10/13)

September 11, 2013 BY WATM

It's been a crazy two days for fashion. Between runway shows and presentation, goodie bags and green juices, low phone battery and no battery, we've hardly had time to sleep. See below, the highlights of our past two days! Photography by Maia Schoenfelder, Will Foster & Obi Anyanwu

9/9/13 First stop of the day was at Industria Studios for Assembly New York. The girls walked across a sea of silver, all sporting a bright pink face stripe, Daft Punk Esque glasses and white chunky-heeled shoes (loved). The entire collection, filled with neon, futuristic like lines and metallics transported us to another planet.

A very unique location, and if you're wondering, yes the cars were left untouched (since all attendees were there for fashion and not theft or vandalism, duh). The collection entitled 'Remorse' was inspired by uniforms from penitentiaries, but they were stripped down to represent liberation and freedom.


We finished off the night at Samantha Pleet X Wolverine event on the Lower East. The party was mystical and the shoes we drool-worthy...but more on this later...!

Both men and women walked the runway wearing a gorgeous assortment of outfits ranging from comfy and casual to higher brow decadence. Blues and whites began the show while bolder colors finished us off. The prints were amazing, but without overshadowing simple outfits we'd love to have in our own closets.

The show was held in the basement of a Tribeca gallery which was illuminated by an alluring green light before showtime. The models walked the concrete runway to a heavy soundtrack that repeated Zepol's name in clothes that looked to be inspired by a futuristic wasteland. Looks consisted of ninja masks, a breathing apparatus, and "Matrix" binary code inspired designs.

Last but not least was Christine Alcalay's presentation, whose SS14 collection we previously previewed (and loved). As models traipsed over white wooden crates, Alcalay's clothing flowed freely and beautifully. The collection as a whole was extremely strong yet delicate, and accented by BingBang jewelry, the girls looked perfect.
