I would appreciate a spare week right now to hibernate and catch up on some sleep. It's a good thing NYFW never keeps me up at night... Maybe Thom Browne and his beautiful nightmares, which seemed pretty tame this season. There was also the novelty of Gareth Pugh presenting a performance in NY instead of his regular runway show in Paris. I haven't seen any videos of the performance, but after reading a few reviews it seems to have had little emphasis on the clothes. Apparently a lookbook will be released later this month. I've always enjoyed Gareth's collections, and there is a part of me that identifies him as being a fantastic collaborator in performance art/costume development. This presentation confirms that for me.
I'm hanging out for Paris. That being said, I'm open to suggestion. Who has been exciting you this NYFW? If NY isn't quite your thing, who are you looking forward to and do you have any expectations? I'm hoping to see Rick return to the hard elegance and grace that has been absent from his recent collections.
