NYFW Review, cont’d: WTFs and FTWs
Hey all, Karina here. I recently posted on the most prominent trends of NYFW. Of course, every fashion week is not without it’s WTF moments, and this NYFW is certainly not exempt. From furry gorilla arms to garments with so much leather it would make even the bronze bovines on Wall Street shudder in fear, some fashions left us wanting.
For less, that is. Much less. Here is a Lowlight reel…
1) Jeremy Scott. I’m pretty sure a rainbow vomited somewhere above his design pad and resulted in this collection… On the other hand, I’m pretty sure Nicki Minaj would have a love affair with these.
2) Fur taken too far. For every time the fur trend was pulled off well, there were another five times that had us wondering whether the Bronx Zoo had some missing creatures. Given that these models are size 0, there were an alarming number of Chewbacca wannabes and Gorilla arms walking down the runways… questionable choices, couturiers. Questionable indeed.
3) Marc Jacobs. I’m all for being inspired by the arts, and Lord knows I’m no stranger to period costume… but you might have an issue when every one of your models look like an extra from Les Miserables.
Finally, you have those instances when WTF is, in fact, a FTW. Case in point? Ralph Lauren’s bizarre Playboy-esque outfits are as baller as they are relatively unconventional. This is WTF done right. Love it!
