The Untold Truth Of OutDaughtered
#TheList: Fashion Week Hot List
Once Demna designs one for both Vetements and Balenciaga, you know it's officially a thing. The baseball cap is slated to be the sporty topper on the heads of all the oft-photographed. Kim is already on board.
While the industry's M.O. continues to be the long, languid dinners with casual BFA photogs in tow, Fashion Week still calls for some late night dance parties and the hot spot du jour is looking to be the Lower East Side's et al located at191 Chrystie Street. Cushnie et Ochs is having its after-party there, and we trust those girls' instincts.
Let's face it, fashion is largely for women and the CFDA is standing by its ladies. The Council of Fashion Designers of America has partnered with Planned Parenthood to launch Fashion Stands with Planned Parenthood, "a promotional initiative that capitalizes on New York Fashion Week's global reach to raise awareness and funds for Planned Parenthood's important efforts."
The CFDA designed a special pink pin for CFDA Members and supporters to use during their Fashion Week shows and presentations—it'stheaccessory of the week.
If you don't Instagram it, did it even happen? Dinners will be taking place all over town during the week, but the most photogenic new hot spot has to be the very millenial pink Pietro Nolita. Get in line behind the flood of Insta-stars heading to the Big Apple.
The hottest models now are, well,not models. Call Merriam Webster because the people to have on your runway now are "nodels." Recent standout examples of the trend were Buzz Aldridge and Bill Nye walking at men's fashion week; January's entire Vetements runway show where real people wore the collection aimed at "stereotypes"; Camilla Deterre the daughter of Australian artist Mark Wilson and German restaurateur Ana Opitz walked Ekhaus Latta last seasonandthe fabulous 85-year old Carmen Dell'Orefice stole and closed the Guo Pei show. Only time—and the next runway show—will tell who will ne the next bignodelon the block.
From Supreme tees to anyone who can get their hands on those Dior Addict shirts and those now ubiquitous Gucci logo shirts, get ready to get some reading done at fashion week.
The brand is celebrating not with a runway show, but with a more apropos birthday party. Founder Marcus Wainwright is inviting friends of the brand, including some famous ones, to a Fashion Week kickoff on February 9 that will include artful images of notables in the new season's wears. The exhibit will open to the public the following day.
Could the hottest thing about New York be...moving to Paris? Rodarte is headed to Paris this season as is buzzy streetwear brand Hood By Air, with Proenza Schouler hot on their heels for its next season showing. Thankfully, the Proenza boys are giving New York a proper swan song before going full Euro. And Vera Wang will also be showing a seasonal collection video in the City of Lights come March—where she'll also be accepting her Légion d'Honneur. Who can compete with that?
And if they're not in Paris, many are going Manifest Destiny style to La La Land. Bye Rebecca Minkoff and Rachel Comey, both of whom already celebrated their new seasonal collections on the Left Coast. Tommy Hilfiger is also taking his particular brand of showmanship west, packing models and "influencers" onto a Tommy x Gigi themed p.j. to land in Tommyland, er, Los Angeles.
Thankfully, some designers are only ramping up their New York presence—with Kanye actually getting on the official calendar for Yeezy and Garbiela Hearst staging her very first runway show.
Raf Simons has been leaving hints at what to expect at his Calvin Klein debut on Friday. We've seen the brand's new logo, called, "A return to the spirit of the original. An acknowledgement of the founder and foundations of the fashion house," created in collaboration with the art director and graphic designer Peter Saville. We've seen Raf's beautiful, couture-like 14-piece Calvin Klein By Appointment collection on the brand's Instagram. And just yesterday Calvin acolytes were privy to the first ad campaign under the new designer's particular eye—a nod to pop art and an appreciation for design over bold faced models. But nothing can quite prepare you for seeing a well-loved designer's very first collection for a storied New York brand.
Since the entire fashion industry seems to be slowly migrating to lower Manhattan, it seems only natural that their main haunts would live down there as well. The only question? Are you a Spring Place member hitting up the Caviar Caspia pop-up during Fashion Week or will you be sipping your cappos at the newly renovated—and home to Valentino's Pre-Fall Show—The Beekman Hotel?
It wouldn't be a February Fashion Week without plunging temps and at least a few snowflakes, which leaves the fashion set with one of two of-the-moment coat options from Vetements. There's the giant puffer favored by Kendall Jenner and the camo parka that Rihanna recently rocked. We'd offer weather-appropriate shoe suggestions, but let's be honest, even the Polar Vortex can't make a true fashion girl part with her new Dior sling-backs.
The brand is slated to have a very promising season with new creative directors Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim (also the duo behind Monse) showing their long-awaited debut collection for the house. Afterwards, the two will present their latest for Monse. Additionally, none other than Hillary Clinton will serve as presenter for the United States Postal Service's First-Day-of-Issue Stamp Dedication Ceremony for the Oscar de la Renta Forever stamp at Grand Central Terminal on the last day of Fashion Week.
