More Highlights of
New York Fashion Week Day 4
Y-3’s Fall 2012 collection was reminiscent of a journey throughout the globe, which made stops in Mongolia, England, Japan, and France. This collection was all about the journey. This translated as models strutting down the runway dressed as very fashionable travelers. The prints and knits were sporty but culturally interesting; pulling patterns from Central Asian cultures like an ikat. There was also a little dash of playful leopard print. There were flatteringly tailored leather jackets for women and Japanese fisherman-style pants for the guys. This collection was appealing, incredibly functional, and very wearable, as expected from the perfect blend of Yohji Yamamoto and Adidas. The outerwear was really the prize here though.
Custo Barcelona’s Fall 2012 collection is a fashionable hodgepodge of typical fabrics, tech fabrics, and color. Custo Barcelona described the collection as a fusion of these three aforementioned elements to culminate into an “experimental and contemporary” collection. The collection’s diverse fabrics and interesting details are really what made it so great. The mix of metallics, fringe, wool, leather, fur, prints, and lace made this collection a magnificent fashion science experiment. The patchwork knits and Chewbacca furs fit in perfectly too as did the miniskirts. The women’s wear definitely stole the show, as the guys’ styles were “typical” compared to the girls. This collection is perfect for a daring crew with a bold taste.
