Truman Says

Jeremy Scott
’s shows are always a welcome dose of batshit during a Fashion Week that can be overly snooty, self-serious, or just plain boring. The crowd awaiting Mr. Scott’s Wednesday afternoon show consisted of a dude on roller-skates with Vulcan eyebrows, various drag queens and club weirdos mingling with the fashion cognoscenti –- you know, the usual Jeremy Scott gang.

Maybe it’s because we’re in a never-ending time of war that J. Sabatino has had the only military-themed collection. The uniformed utilitarian aesthetic with built-in masculinity is a common go-to for designers. But even if military were the huge trend (a la mountain climbing inexplicably was last season), J. Sabatino would certainly stand out.

The atmosphere for 2(x)ist’s Wednesday night show at the Maritime Hotel’s Hiro Ballroom was similar to the venue’s usual disco vibe. As Lady Gaga and Robyn blared, the crowd munching sushi and eggrolls didn’t seem exactly A-list -- but wait! There’s half the cast of The A-list, seated at a table right by the runway!

In the same way that everyone becomes a soccer expert overnight when the World Cup begins, during Fashion Week, suddenly people you never knewthought twice about their clothing in the morning are front row fixtures. This season, basketball players have been dominating the front row with one noted exception.

When Michael Bastian’s well-built models emerge, their presence is always akin to velociraptors after the skinny flamingos in all of the other shows. Finally, some guys who don’t have a 28” waist. But moving on…

Against a backdrop of banging early 90s techno, Patrik Ervel conjured the most well-dressed rave in history. Silver scaffolding from a fictional construction site served as a centerpiece, and models marched around it to the syncopated beat in this sleek collection – lambskin vests, aviator jackets, cut-to-a-t blazers and other Ervel staples abounded, plus the runway review of his women's designs. What truly stood out were the hand-painted, color-saturated pieces. No one has ever made a rainbow shirt and jacket look so tough and effortless.

Although he's already a familiar face to those who study the European runway shows, advertising campaigns and fashion editorials, Argentinean model Nicolas Ripoll is gracing America with his presence for the first time this Fashion Week. He's been making the rounds in shows like Lacoste, Siki Im, and Tommy Hilfiger. Check out the video below, because if you don't think he's cute now, wait till you hear the accent.
