NEW YORK CITY 1977
At the Christian Benner A/W 2014 Collection at Pier 59 Studios in New York City, we saw exactly what we had expected from Mr. Benner – and we loved it! The theme for his debut runway collection was “New York City 1977”, which is a look we adore at Ponyboy. The Nancy Spungeon aesthetic never looked so good – dark eyes, black hosiery, and the most exquisite custom studded leather jackets and distressed punk rock t-shirts. It’s obvious to us that Christian Benner is extremely passionate about his creations, as we see them as pure, wearable art. Our favorite jacket had small handwriting scrawled all over it, as if printed that way. It is very young and very rebellious; so we understand why both rockstars and celebrities flock to snap up his pieces. We highly anticipate future collections by the talented Mr. Benner.
