Farewell New York Fashion Week: 5 Designers Who Put On A Show Against All Odds
The last day of NYFW is always a bit of a bitter pill and this “week” was no exception…
It will be some time until we see Michael Kors take one of his signature victory laps around the runway.
The designer announced today that he has opted out of New York Fashion Week, scheduled this year for the week of September 14, in favor of a spring 2021 presentation in the mid-October to mid-November time frame.
“I have for a long time thought that the fashion calendar needs to change,” Kors said in a statement. “It’s exciting for me to see the open dialogue within the fashion community about the calendar—from Giorgio Armani to Dries Van Noten to Gucci to YSL to major retailers around the globe—about ways in which we can slow down the process and improve the way we work.
We’ve all had time to reflect and analyze things, and I think many agree that it’s time for a new approach for a new era.”
LRS Peer Pressures Us to Be Daring
New York’s grit served as the perfect backdrop for Raul Solis’ new rebel collection.
Aftering viewing his look book, I have the sudden urge to own a silk pant. Each piece is a statement all on its own.
Solis was careful not to bore us with the same old fabrics, dipping his toe in glossy latexs and finding a decorative use for heavy chains.
Rough around the edges, there’s a subtle ease about the whole thing.
