Desigual SS17 | NYFW

Travel the world with Desigual as their Spring/Summer 17 collection takes you through styles of different parts of the world. Desigual stuck to its usual vibrant and colorful traits but became even more tribal than ever. Influenced by African and Indian culture, head wraps, prints and embellished pieces swarmed the runway. Embellished denim recently began trending and it looks like they’re here to stay. Other embellished detailing trickled into lace dresses as well. From embroideries to their signature patterned jackets, how can one not love this collection? Keeping it bright, stripes were…

General Idea SS17 | NYFWM

Not everyone wears next to nothing during the warmer seasons. Some people like to wear leather jackets even during the summer. Although the SS17 line is titled The Pale Blue, General Idea included a lot of neutrals and some leather in his line. Along with the neutrals, he was sure to include a few pastel pieces that was a great reminder of the title. Known for providing high end comfortable pieces, this season incorporated metallic leather jackets paired with oversized tops and bottoms. Black and white pieces are always a…

Nick Graham Takes Us To Cuba | NYFWM

I am completely blown away by the Nick Graham showing. This wasn’t just a show or presentation, it was both! Nick Graham took us to Cuba as he opened with Cuban Carnival dancers who welcomed the SS17 collection and left us needing to see more. Let’s rewind for a bit. As I walked in, I was handed a synopsis of the show, which looked like a flight ticket. At that moment, I knew this experience was going to be different from the rest. To my knowledge, this showing was just…

Trunks at Thorsun SS17 | NYFWM

How can I speak of the Spring/Summer 2017 without speaking of the trunks at Thorsun? Trunks are essential for the spring and summer as the warmer weather permits beachwear. With models that are inviting with their smiles and laughter, the presentation surely

Pastels Galore at Zachary Prell SS17 | NYFWM

I love when designers incorporate pastel hues, but what I love even more is when its done right! Keeping it preppy, Prell utilized gray, blue and pink as well as some deeper hues to show that the modern man can wear it all. Whether it’s monochrome or color-blocking, keeping it chic while displaying the, “renew of the morning sun” is the key for the collection. Blue is very present within this collection and because he’s inspired by the morning sun, the blue fabric symbolizes the sky. I’ve always loved monochrome looks so…

Technology With Feng Chen Wang | NYFWM

The debut of the Feng Chen Wang S1S17 collection wasn’t your average presentation. Displaying her collection as her models stood tall against the high windows at V files allowed us to see the connectivity of it all. She utilized the looped cables to not only showcase her belief  in fate and connectivity, but also technology in this new day and age as that is how most people meet one another. Some designers are inspired by the past, while others like to illustrate their embrace of the present through their art.…

Kenneth Ning SS17 | NYFWM

Kenneth Ning’s SS17 collection is completely different from what I expected. Although its Spring/Summer and most designers go bright for this season, I wasn’t expecting him to embody pastels as his FW16 collection is filled with blacks, grays and chains. Sticking to his grunge signature, he pulled off a collection that included pastels with a grunge twist. This blue and white striped look is a fan favorite! As I walked into the presentation, my colleagues were already raving about this look, telling me that I have to check it out. Pairing it…

Embellished Frock |NYFWM Day 1

Happy Men’s Week! As womenswear is my first love, menswear comes second. As I headed out for Men’s Day, I threw on an embellished frock and headed over to Soho for Suit Supply which was my first stop of the day . My initial encounter of the collection was outside as the models rode bikes around the block. I captured the moment on snapchat (@queenoyinkan) and at that moment, I knew I have arrived at my destination. I’m a sucker for embellishments so when I initially encountered this dress in…

Suit Supply SS17 | NYFWM

As I pulled up to Suit Supply, I saw a random group of  men dressed in suits riding around on their bikes.  Amongst other things, New York is known as one of the most reckless places to drive in (especially Manhattan). The fast paced lifestyle breeds impatience in most of us, yet the traffic caused  by these men didn’t seem to bother anyone. I was waiting for the moment someone would blow their horn, yet no one seemed bothered. Fashion is a great way to hold my attention. The only time I’m…

Rideau SS17 | NYFWM

You know how I feel about prints and the prints that I encountered at Rideau were surely a sight to see!  Influenced by Japanese and European culture, the  monochromatic tone curated by Creative Director, Dylan Granger left me swooning. Not only did he include various neutral shades but he presented neutrals with a colored twist. I am completely in love with the orange printed jacket which embodies most of the colors that I love to wear. These are also the colors that a lot of people gravitate towards during the spring and…
