Amelia Diamond | February 12, 2016

If the newest Star Wars is still on your mind, then it might affect the way you look at BCBG; any time tunics (belted in denim, let loose in softer fabrics) or sweaters that are pieced together with knit “scraps” clothe a body, it’s hard to not picture something futuristic/post-apocalyptic, but what will throw you off: BCBG’s furry sandals over sparkle tights and ribbed glitter tops — winter 2016 staples, for sure. Former Limited Too fans concur.

Speaking of former Limited Too fans! Brother Vellies had live butterflies flying around the damn presentation, which was pure Snapchat candy and also a way more safe alternative to that time Oprah let out a whole carton of bees into her audience.

Anyway, the important takeaways from Butterfly Vellies’ (lol) beautiful show were that your winter bags will need tails, your ankle boots will need to sparkle, your mid-calf boots should be floral-embroidered and your knees will actually hate you if you don’t cover them quickly in a pair of suede almost-thigh-highs.

Brother Vellies Fall/Winter '16

Good boots almost make you forget about clothes, even in this cold.

But let’s say you need clothes-clothes to keep you warm. Adam Selman showed a few puffer coats that went beyond the call of insulation and managed to look cool. As for the rest of his Winter 2016 collection, frigid temps won’t be an issue. The secretly wearable looks (“secretly” because the fun is in his styling, which at times can be very who-would-really-wear-that-deceitful) were heated up by teenage angst — the kind that comes with confidence to stand tall, challenge systems and spit on conformity. The Selman girl, regardless of season, is fierce and rebellious — she’s sometimes cloaked in irony, but never is she slouching through some mall.

    Brother Vellies reminded me of Alexander McQueen spring 2001 collection mixed with that ANTM photoshoot from a couple of years ago. That being said, it was a great collection.
