Dropping off stripper shoes from Fantasy World and Oakley Frogskin look-alikes from St. Marks Street for Mama Woolhead. Good luck styling. Hope the show is beyond!
11:30am - Shootdigital photo studio
At studio helping Nikki, Cyndi Lauper's stylist, pull some last minute dresses and pieces for our December/January Out 100 issue cover shot. Cyndi has super bleached white hair, full of energy, and fun. We are gonna make some serious magic happen here. Keep your eyes open for the issue on newsstands mid-November.
3pm - 3.1 Phillip Lim
Lim has always shown his menswear alongside the women's wear, and the ladies always upstage up their sometimes lackluster male counterparts. Not this time. Lim does Spring/Summer so well (ethereal, romantic, a bit dainty, but so chic). The presentation set-up looked like little apartment vignettes. There was a solo pianist who made the environment feel like a salon party with artists, writers, and intellectuals. The colors were muted. We were loving the accessories: there were these sandals which are sure to be thee "it" item of Summer 2010! We also love that super cutie Richard Chai was there to support his friend. The Asian boys are taking over the New York fashion scene and owning it.
4pm - Loden Dager
The dusty aqua we saw at Duckie Brown appeared again (this time in complete outfits rather than just shoes). Huaraches were the staple shoe (which we absolutely love). There was an earthiness to the look. Navajo-esque prints looked digitalized. "Friendship" bracelets (a trend we believe the Burkman Brothers brought to fruition) were on every model and we didn't mind. And the Macaroni bead necklaces wrapped in fabric are an easy do-it-yourself accessory I am sure the gay boys will be sporting.
5pm - Rag & Bone
What a star-studded front row: Charlize Theron, Elijah Wood, Anna Wintour, and model-turned-celebrity Jessica Stam sitting with one of the girls from Gossip Girl (obvi no Blake Lively). The boys at Rag & Bone love military coats, and over all the collection had a Civil War-meets-Amish feel, which I am sure will sell like crazy. The thermals and outerwear in pastoral colors were pretty gorge, but my two favorite bits: the styling (was loving what looked like pins with pears at the backs of jackets to created a pleated look) and the absolutely deliciously handsome Tenzin Wild sitting directly across from me.
