NYFW: GREAT AMERICAN SPORTSWEAR
NYFW kicks off with a handful of designers that take on Great American Sportswear for Spring 20. Alexander Wang and Rag & Bone stand out with staples like blazers, reworked shirts and baggy pants, while classic trench coats are also featured. Even suits become more casual in relaxed shapes and new elongated layering techniques.
RODARTE DREAMY PORTRAITS SERIES Rodarte unveils its Spring 2020 collection through a series of dreamy, star-studded portraits that perfectly embody the brand's signature romantic designs. Sister designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy's decision to present the collection as these surreal painted portraits rather than a staged catwalk reflect their artistic freedom and the ability to create a fantastical world around their designs. The result is visual feast that highlights the brand's princess-like gowns and hyper-feminine details with a stunning interplay of graphic colors.
CHEETOS HOUSE OF FLAMIN HAUTE
Flamin' Hot Cheetos made a delightful and delicious impression on New York Fashion Week with its "Flamin' Haute Cheetos" collection. Attendees were treated to Flamin' Hot Cheetos inspired makeup, hair, and nails looks while enjoying Cheetos inspired cocktails. The collection sizzled on the the runway to the tune of rapper Saweetie's live performance, with fetching leopard, vinyl black, and flame motifs for a surprisingly delicious collection that was tongue-and-cheek chic.
SUPREME X OAMC - PEACEMAKER
The latest collaboration between Supreme links up with Parisian label OAMC to drop a printed military jacket just in time for the cooling temps - and for a good cause! The surplus outerwear features the bold Futura font synonymous with the streetwear brand reworked as "PEACEMAKER" on the back and is donating all profits to @immfamtogether, a volunteer based organization that is dedicated to reuniting families separated at the US-Mexico border.
HIGH FASHION AND CANNABIS
Liberian-born Project Runway alumni Korto Momolu collaborated with Women Grow, an organization promoting female cannabis farmers, for a clean, bold collection that aimed to dismantle stigmas surrounding THC and CBD use. Using eco-friendly, sustainable fabrics like hemp, cork, and jute, the looks featured white and black contrasted with dusty yellow, navy, and orange. By accessorizing with golden cannabis jewelry and glittering vape pen wristlets, Momolu added a luxe aesthetic and unabashed visibility to marijuana use.
