What does New York’s coolest brand do after almost single-handedly making fleece cool again?
For ApparelMagic client Sandy Liang, the answer was easy: remind everyone how cool you can make other forgotten fashion staples.
Simple looking babydoll dresses revealed hidden complexities in pattern. An apron dress was rendered very literally in a utilitarian-chic black leather. And ruched blouses were paired with strikingly hemmed denim. These were wardrobe basics no longer.
Of course, the fleece look was still there, now updated in sherpa and furry textures and in warm browns and ivories. A more grown-up fleece, if you will.
But the rest of the collection consisted of easy-to-wear separates effortlessly made of-the-moment (and even a little sporty) via Liang’s masterful touch.
While there were new takes on puffers (oversized or eyeball printed) and duster jackets (Wild West styled with huge lapels) the motorcycle jackets Liang presented during her fashion week show, in both bubblegum pink and classic black, were a real stand out. With their tiny pockets they echoed the mini purse trend, but with daring hoop piercings along the neckline, they bit back.
