NYFW Ruffian Fall 2013: Modern Time Travel

Ruffian

Brian Wolk and Claude Morais took us back in time to the nineteenth century for Ruffian’s Fall Collection. Large tassels, oversized bows, ruffles, and gaudy jewels embellished menswear inspired dresses.  Navy and gold tunics, purple pin strip suits, earthtone separates and jacquard prints were definitely standout pieces. Staying on trend with designer peers, Ruffian incorporated a number of leather garments and some peplum action in a number of looks. This Ruffian fall collection is definitely one of our favorites from New York Fashion Week! Check out a few of our favorite pieces from the collection below!

NYFW Parkchoonmoo Fall 2013: An Arctic Wind

The Runway Times took to New York Fashion Week , and what perfect time to view this collection than in the middle of a snow storm!

Glaciers in the Arctic Sea and the power of nature is where Demi Park drew inspiration for the Parkchoonmoo Fall 2013 collection, creating a line that’s weather resistant, arming you against storms and hazards. A palette of eggshell-white, light grey, and black were the focal points that defined this fall collection. Tech fabrics and water repellent leather hit the runway in the form of leather patch pants, leather jackets, and satin, wool, and Alpaca fur coats accessorized with weather resistant pillows had their close-up too.  Though it stayed within the realm of the color palette, we did see print. A glacier print to be exact, on an asymmetrical dress with stud detailing.

Let’s just hope we have Parkchoonmoo in our closets the next time NYC has to deal with a “Nemo”.

ALL NYFW Shows Go LIVE! Cash Cow or Crutch?

Well hello there,

Did you know that starting this season (which is in like…6 days), all shows that will be presented during Mercedes Benz New York Fashion week at Lincoln Center will be live streamed?! It’s a dream come true for those that either don’t have the clout to get into the shows, or those who can’t get to new York City for some reason or another (I’m generally a mix of those two, so don’t feel bad if you fall into that group). IMG has partnered with Rightster, a worldwide media content distributor, to bring live streamed shows of EVERY designer, plus on-demand videos from each of them. Talk about exclusivity! But for who? I can play the devil’s advocate here on behalf of the taste makers that new York Fashion Week was intended for; the buyers, stylists, socialites, and fashion innovators that get these collections where they need to be.

I would think that those groups of people just listed are either livid, or they don’t care at all in the context of this decision. Livid, because I could see how it may seem like their exclusivity is being taken away from what was once such mystery, “What really happens on those runways?”. Before, the world didn’t have as much insider access to fashion week as they do now, but with the coming of innovative technologies and the blogger culture, it’s almost instinct to share! And with that growing instinct are the consumers, enthusiasts, and the like demanding it. The ones that don’t care are probably those who are very welcoming of change and evolution. They don’t feel threatened, and they shouldn’t.

I personally think it’s a great idea. I loved when Maybelline took the initiative over the past few seasons to live stream select shows, and I’m sure they did too after seeing such a great reaction to their generosity. There are so many people who share a love for beauty and fashion and only dream of being able to attend shows at NYFW, but with the reality, everyone won’t get that chance and at least this is a shot at letting them get one step closer. We live in a fast-growing media culture, so I feel like this was essentially inevitable. I know one thing, since I have school all week and can’t be in New York to attend shows at the same time, I will be watching those live streams and loving every minute! I thank IMG and Rightster for understanding my complicated, busy-life situation. HA!

What do you think about this collab? Do you think IMG has taken the magic and mystery away from fashion week by making it fully accessible to everyone? or do you think this will end up providing a better ROI for the designers presenting? I’m really interested in knowing where others stand with this one!

Starting on Feb 7th, IMG+Rightster will live stream all shows on the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week website and on their Facebook. Don’t miss out this time. Why? Well, because now you don’t have to. Your personal invite has just arrived.

 

Sincerely,

with style,
