We’re finished with New York Fashion Week and visually, a lot happened on the runway. Creatures of the Wind, Tome and Rodebjer removed the “ath” from leisure and showed us how to relax in beautiful clothes. Scratch that and add two more — BCBG and Creatures of Comfort had a similar idea in mind, too. Golden boys Adam Selman and Wes Gordon increased their already growing fan-base, high-hipped swimsuits may take over for your regular bodysuit come next spring and the whole thing has, for the most part, occurred “downtown.”
Of course, you and I both know that when it comes to downtown, fashion isn’t just happening on the runway. It’s in the streets. For safety matters it really should be on the sidewalk but everyone is pretty good about looking both ways so, streets it is.
Here’s where we’d usually start identifying the pedestrian trends: “It’s all about shoes!” “Everyone is wearing underwear this season!” “Shirts, in general, are having a moment!” But wouldn’t it be more fun if you pointed out the street style trends? Of what you’d like to see more of, what’s exciting you, what’s confusing you but that you find intriguing at the same time? Uh, yea it would be.
