There’s a famous Jewish proverb that says “you can’t dance at all weddings.” Even far from Mother Russia, that’s still true… though at least now, you can scroll through them on Instagram while sprawled on the couch.
The same is true for New York Fashion Week, though in the past day alone, there have been over 10k posts about it.
Before the scrolling starts, see the best bits from New York Fashion Week, Day 2. Then perhaps take a break from screens altogether and do some actual dancing. It is Friday, after all…
Jonathan Cohen’s Controlled Chaos
Jonathan Cohen’s official runway debut was a delightful binge of prints and patterns. With floral embroidery created by female artisans in his native Mexico, Cohen’s trippy layers bloomed large and loud… just like the massive bouquets at the end of his catwalk.
Khaite’s Princess Brides
Until Phoebe Philo comes back, can we get more Cate Holstein? The California native is damn good at what she does, and what she does is make clothes we all want. (So simple. So hard.) This season brought us billowing Shakespeare sleeves and sheer swashbuckle dresses that channeled Buttercup’s great escape in The Princess Bride. (If you don’t get the film reference, stop everything, watch this, and thank me later.)
Bella Hadid vs. Marilyn Monroe
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes…but Ralph Lauren prefers Bella Hadid. Here’s the supermodel in a revamp of Marilyn Monroe’s iconic gold lamé dress from the movie. Originally created by Hollywood designer Travilla, it’s a show stopper for sure.
More Yoga Moms
Yesterday, Rachel Comey sent actual yoga pros down the catwalk in Srivasana-ready knits. Today, Collina Strada showed a collection made with 70% dead stock fabric, a narrator discussing ocean clean-ups over a microphone, and the clever theme “Low Carbon Diet.” She also paired her Phish-friendly tie dye with water bottles, thermoses, and compostable cups of herbal tea.
Also: Model Moms
Collina Strada boasted model Hartje Andresen and her baby on the runway together. Meanwhile at Elie Tahari, college student Sailor Brinkley Cook gave her mom Christie Brinkley a high-five as she closed the show in a suit of forest green.
Camilla + Marc’s Red Alert
Today on Coat Hunters™, a cinched scarlet trench the color of rare steak, and just as crave-worthy. Wow.
Miu Miu for Gamers
Miu Miu made a video game to celebrate their new scent, Miu Miu Twist. It’s in the style of ‘80s arcade classics, and features a 16-bit Elle Fanning trying to party with her cat on the moon. (What, like the Pac-Man plot made any sense?) Click here to play.
