New York Fashion Week Day One

Coach, Jason Wu, Wes Gordon Headline New York Fashion Week Day One

New York Collections usually forerun the international fashion season, and September 5 is marked in the global fashion calendar of cool. While many eyed September with a lot of things going on in the world, including the much-anticipated new smartphone and Apple Watch that was launched by the tech giant Apple, mobile devices have also brought the fashion world into the digital arena.

Amidst the onset of fashion blogs, online shopping, and gadget innovations, there still remains, thankfully, the zest for designers’ shows, as the most recent fashion looks from the catwalk exploded in bursts of colors. Many fashion designers have already embraced the new face of fashion reporting and display, with cyber selling invading brick-and-mortar stores, such as the wearable technology from Ralph Lauren Polo Tech shirts and digital wristbands of Tory Burch for Fitbit .

Taking the fashion fast lane, Coach designer Stuart Vevers collaborated with Californian artist-animator Gary Baseman, who made small creatures to dress up the label’s famous bags. Vevers created a delightful mix of pastel-colored fake fur with 1960s bags and leather shoes. Coach simply let the stable and the horses run wild.

American heritage brand Coach, which has been long associated with simple bucket bags for women, now comes with clothes charmed with extended, slightly disturbed child years – fluff jackets in colors of cotton candy. Baseman’s cartoon creatures and metallic clogs give a rather obvious but silent squeak when worn by those who petulantly go away from an errant partner.

NYFW Jason WuJason Wu is one brand that has been making news in the fashion world. The brand headlined as it sold a controlling stake to InterLuxe investment firm. It trusts that the partnership will usher in a more exciting future. Jason Wu has been in the business for 8 years with a youthful traditional uptown collection that attracted now customer U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama. The summer of 2015 will see Jason Wu’s collection evolving with American sportswear. The InterLuxe collaboration is now at works with Diane Kruger-inspired bags collection. The actress is Jason’s friend. 


NYFW Wes GordonCool-looking Wes Gordon in white shirt and tailored suit said he’s 28 going 78 with his 2015 summer collection in sweaty September in New York. The designer reveals a certain restraint and grace, his refreshing way of making a stop to the vulgarity flow in fashion; just like calf-length and slim dresses under V-shaped jackets cut in an un-showy manner and paired with flat shoes. All suggest soft contemporary fashion.

Born in Atlanta, Georgia, the designer has a certain spirit that is respectful to women, perhaps inspired by his experience being an intern of Oscar dela Renta and Tom Ford; or maybe from his studies in London’s Central Saint Martin. Classy but never brassy, his works express womanhood in a light, non-obvious, yet beautiful manner, in subtle choices of fabrics, color, and laces. His current mixes of powder blue, pale green, and blush pink make his collection very womanly; and his clothings’ flash of silver on the shoulder parts of a sweater appears just fine.
