Yes, NYFW F/W 2011 was definitely sucking. Luckily it picked up by day 3. With my boys ROG and KADEEM in tow, we hit up two shows on Saturday that were just what I needed to prevent my NYFW death. Cause of death: Boredom. I didn't even bother taking my own photos because Rog was there and he's the best there is.
Observe: Edun (photos: Rog Walker)...
...a huge departure from last season's solid colors and simple silhouettes - this collection was layers and layers of bulkiness, flowiness, clashing prints...did I mention the layers? Here are my fav looks (photos: style.com):
And then there was the Petrou\Man presentation. Perhaps one of the best presentations I've ever been to...certainly one of the most creative. The collection itself was majority dark: black, deep red, charcoal...but it was totally off-set by the bright makeup and scenic decoration. I'll let Rog's photos do the talking:
Jaw-dropping. And the music in the background was this rhythmic tribal drumming...A+.
So thank you to Edun and Petrou\Man for making a previously dull NYFW much more alive. More to come...stay tuned!
