NYFW FW19: Camilla & Marc, threeASFOUR, and Christian Siriano

Pearl Fontaine

11 February 2019

Kicking off our coverage of the Fall/Winter 2019 collections being shown in New York this week, we’re showing you what we loved from Camilla & Marc, threeASFOUR, and Christian Siriano.

threeASFOUR celebrated its return after a three-year absence with the release of the LIGHTBEINGS collection, which explored the malleability of artistic appropriation. Featuring rejected components from artist Stanley Casselman’s paintings as prints and recycled cutting-patterns from the brand’s debut collection in 1999, the designs employed borrowed elements to create a series of entirely new and original designs. Just as much a walking art show as it was a runway show, the presentation highlighted the sculptural looks in front of a changing backdrop, mirroring the painted fabric prints of the garments themselves. Our favorite looks included a dress made entirely of large, planet-like discs, and a silvery hooded coat and matching trousers.

Camilla & Marc opted out of the traditional runway show for the Fall/Winter 2019 season, instead presenting a live art installation at the TriBeCa Penthouse in the Greenwich Hotel. Inspired by the Golden Mean and the great works of artists Leonardo Da Vinci and Sandro Botticelli, the brand collaborated with photographer Ana Kras, inviting TyLynn Nguyen, Andrea Mary Marshall, Gia Seo, Bianca Valle, Caroline Ventura, and Nicole Della Costa to help form the live display. A series of long, loose, and sophisticated silhouettes were in a palette of cream, olive, and mustard. Models were captured around the space with a number of props, including a table adorned with wine and grapes—reminiscent of a Renaissance painting.

Atop a shining silver runway with a geometric backdrop, Christian Siriano debuted a glamorous collection that has us longing for its release. Presented by a mix of body types and on models like Ashley Graham, the collection included a range of silhouettes fit for any number of outings, imagined in a deep, striking palette of silvery gray, blues, purples, and black. Some looks we’re still thinking about include the disco ball-reminiscent pant suits, the purple ruffled mini-dress, and the simplistically chic one-shouldered gown with the sparkling crystal details.
