Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
New York Fashion Week has come and gone, but we’re still dreaming of details from some of our favorite presentations. Below, we spotlight the new collections from Ralph Lauren, Zadig & Voltaire, and KITH.
Ralph Lauren showed it’s Fall/Winter 2019 collection in an immersive evening inspired by an Art-Deco nightclub. With the tuxedo as the main event, the “Ralph’s Club” collection celebrated the art of black-tie dress with a variation of stylish suits, tuxedo-inspired garments, and evening gowns. While the classic black-and-white tuxedo was the highlight, the collection also included the occasional deep red, yellow, or royal blue—seen in pieces like a simple satin strapless gown, and a velvet jumpsuit in dark teal. Other highlights included the tuxedo and sparkling silver overcoat worn by Gigi Hadid; the black sequined cocktail dress with a Ralph Lauren teddy bear graphic; and the black and white dress with the bowtie and tuxedo bib-front.
Opting out of a traditional fashion show, Zadig & Voltaire presented its Spring/Summer 2020 collection—a capsule collection with the NBA—during a week-long project culminating an event deemed “Shoe Surgeon School.” There, guests were able to view the new designs (like leopard print jacket bearing the Chicago Bulls logo, or a Miami Heat bomber) along with a collaboration by The Shoe Surgeon, who offered a behind-the-scenes look at the process that goes into making a pair of sneakers.
KITH’s Spring/Summer 2020 presentation, “Air,” debuted in Cipriani 25 Broadway’s Great Hall, where the brand completely immersed its audience in the world of KITH and its inspirations. A collection of elevated streetwear, it included pieces like letterman jackets, camouflage shorts, and pullover sweaters in blue, red, gray, and other darker hues. Unisex looks like an oversized hoodie (worn as a dress) or drawstring shorts and a sweatshirt were paired with hiking boots and athletic style duffle bags, while slightly more sensual looks (like a mesh top worn with a KITH zipper-front vest and black shiny cargo pants) were worn with strappy satin stilettos.
