Our 5 favourite New York Fashion Week looks, illustrated
After a week of ogling Fall 2015’s first batch of shows, it’s only natural to develop special feelings for more than a few looks. And when adding them to your Pinterest page or performing a special end-of-season dance just for them isn’t enough, why not give them the old school treatment by putting pen to paper (or tablet to PSD).
Here, we present 5 standout moments from New York Fashion Week, illustrated by Toronto-based talent Matthew Chow. Heart Eyes Emoji forever.
Proenza Schouler, look 42
In this pre-show video interview with WWD, designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez explain the heaviness of enamel embellishment on chiffon. “We don’t love soft, fluid things,” says McCollough. Funny, because I can only imagine any wearer as walking on air.
Altuzarra, look 5
Designer Joseph Altuzarra has made it clear time and time again that sophisticated sex appeal is his jam. What better way to calibrate such a singular aesthetic than with his latest batch of bed-ready yet delicate dresses, paired with knee high Edwardian boots.
Rosie Assoulin, look 28
Assoulin’s swan-worthy statement-makers seem to exist in a parallel universe—one where Cecil Beaton’s eye is the only one that matters and a doorway isn’t something that should stand in the way of your dress. This look, with its absinthe hue, cape-like shape and oversized single flower earring, is everything elegance has stood for since way back in the Babe Paley days.
With just a single row of Swarovski crystals placed on models’ lower lids, Nars artist James Kaliardos managed to offset Laura and Kate Mulleavy’s latest foray into crystal mesh embroidery and fantastical far-flung references.
Michael Kors, look 1
In a season dominated by fur in all forms, you’d imagine that New York’s longstanding purveyor of uptown luxe would do it best. Enter this striped fox bathrobe.
