THE BLONDS F/W 2016

A CONFECTIONERY COLLECTION

David and Phillipe Blond served us major Alice in Wonderland realness for their Fall/Winter 2106 show. Starting with a backdrop of gigantic, trippy, colorful flowers, models walked the runway in classic Blonds staples, including their trademark corsets, bodysuits and skin-tight gowns. The blue pot leaf party dress with petticoat was fun, and the white and pink mini dress with “eat me” appliqués, made us think of delicious birthday cake. We also craved the glittery pink babydoll dress that resembled a giant cupcake. And then there were sequins, lots and lots of sequins, including the full length black puff parka, a striped matching catsuit and bomber, and many more. Hair was worn in pink dreadlock buns with netting. How genius was that? And we saw the fantastic MAC makeup designed by the genius known as Kabuki. It was a very confectionery collection, and it made us hungry for more Blonds! Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://theblonds.nyc

GEORGINE F/W 2016

FAIRY TALES

For Georgine’s F/W 2016 line, designer Georgine Ratelband found her inspiration in her childhood memories of Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Using rich fabrics, finishings and chic silhouettes, Georgine delved into examining the innocent, sanguine characters of utopian worlds and also the moodier, challenging villains we see throughout the stories.

Some looks were undeniably devoted to specific characters. A fur lined, red hooded coat opened the show signifying Little Red Riding Hood. An array of blue dresses suggested Sleeping Beauty and the unexpected to-be princess, Cinderella. A shortsleeve sweatshirt emblazoned with ‘Grumpy’ across the chest does more than imply one of the most well known Seven Dwarves. We also see Hansel and Gretel expressed through a pink sleeveless dress adorned in wrapped candies and ribbons tied in bows. The deep woods that many of the stories are based in are portrayed through pieces made in brown, burnt umber and forest green colors. Further supporting the idea of nature we see separates made of metallic palm leaves, highly textured butterflies and flowers.

The darker looks towards show’s end were dedications to the evil queens, mothers and step mothers of famous folk lore. Adorned with a drastic cat eye and a very dark lip, models walked down the runway in sequins, leather gloves and black reptilian texture. Body conscious dresses were made of sheer silk, velvet burnout and patterned lace would have made any villain proud. Words Xina Giatas. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://www.georgine.com

MAISON KITSUNÉ F/W 2016

“LOVE RISES” MEN’S COLLECTION

From the imagination of co-founders and creative directors Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, Maison Kitsuné pays homage to its Japanese heritage this Fall-Winter 2016 season.

With the aesthetic and dreamscape created by Hayao Miyazaki in acclaimed, animated film The Wind Rises, the collection takes off for distant shores in 1930s aviary fashion.

The << Love Rises >> men’s collection introduces Japanese silhouettes, comfortable, cool and elegant in shades of navy blue and gray with green, which are brought to life in dashes of bright blue, mauve and red. In a combination of daring colors and motifs, patchwork further the palette for an exciting, juxtaposed effect.

Materials also return to native lands in organic textiles: cotton, flannel, broadcloth and velvet.

Icons of Mount Fuji and the Rising Sun recur among pop prints – in aviator or camouflage – in playful celebration of the casual, chic edge that defines the Maison Kitsuné man.

Finally classic, season-to-season styles are revisited and meticulously redone: the bomber jacket is envisioned in raw- edge felted wool; the aviator jacket adopts technical twill with a faux shearling collar; and the duffle coat goes incognito with camouflage jacquard broadcloth.

A FASHION DEMONSTRATION!

For Fall/Winter 2016, Libertine designer Johnson Hartig gave us a very youthful and fun fashion demonstration.  We just loved everything about this collection, with it’s colorful pop art feel. The brilliant looks included capes, lace, emblems, beading, fur and florals. For men we saw vivid graphics, baseball caps, skater pants and sequined track suits. The trademark whimsical Libertine emblems were in full force again this season, including cigarette butts, fried eggs, bacon and voodoo dolls, to name a few. It was a psychedelic visual overload.  Some of our favorite looks include the stunning capes (art pieces unto themselves!), a cream “Chanel” style suit, a 60s tweed coat with doggy emblems and fur cuffs, a vibrant pink and red stripe chubby fur, a black monkey fur vest and a deep plunging black dress with Swarovski hand appliqués. The lace tights embedded with sequins and studs were a great finishing touch. The finale included all the young models demonstrating up and down the runway while holding picket signs with witty sayings. Overall, we were so delighted with this collection. The clothing encapsulates amusement and jest. And this is why Libertine remains a Ponyboy favorite. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://ilovelibertine.com

MILLY F/W 2016

CLASSIC MILLY

Michelle Smith does it again for F/W 2016! Her latest collection features all the elements of the classic Milly woman- feminine, sexy and strong.

We start out with with flirty effeminate looks – shorter hems, exposed shoulders, trapeze dresses and plunging necklines. These looks remain soft yet mighty due to their geometric lines and vivid colors. Then we visit a powerful, alluring woman wearing streamlined body conscious pencil skirts and fitted tops. Even when looks cover most of the body with a button up shirt and slim trouser, we see sensuality in sheer blouses paired with bra tops and bandeaus. Milly also revisits playing with volume through swing coats, inverted pleat culottes in a longer length and dresses with full, flouncy skirts.

A wide variety of color was shown in this assemblage. We saw black paired with saturated red, green and navy, along with pastel cosmetic tones in pink, cool blue and nude. Consistent with her aesthetic, Michelle showcases exciting prints including a graphic, painterly watercolor in cool tones.

Textures were strong and exciting, something we look forward to from Milly. Touches of metallic gold, fur, honeycomb lattice and sequins were seen. The pattern showcased the most throughout was a fringe adorned black fabric that was featured in either green or red blossom floral. Also presented was a 1960s inspired white textile with soft, black tufted pom flower print all over.

We saw quintessential Milly silhouettes layered up for the colder months. Bikini tops, bottoms and miniskirts were seen worn under long, elegant swing coats. Ribbed turtlenecks worn under sleeveless minidresses did the job of warming up a look as well. The looks were finished off with square handbags in black leather and provocative d’Orsay heels.

Though it feels like we are just getting away from a very cold winter, Milly gives us a breathtaking cast of magnetic, coquettish looks to be inspired by. Words by Xina Giatas. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://www.milly.com

ANNA K F/W 2016

YOUTHQUAKE!

Here at Ponyboy we’re just infatuated with anything that’s young and cool. And twenty-year-old fashion design sensation Anna K embodies everything that is both young and cool. The talented designer, who started out as a model in her native Ukraine, has risen to become the most successful designer in the country. She sells worldwide to over forty boutiques, including Collette and Isetan. Her previous collections and personal style have been applauded by many in the fashion industry, including Vogue and Style.com.

Anna K’s first US show, dubbed “Guest from the Future”, was inspired by the young invaders taking over the fashion world, much like the designer herself. The extremely fun collection consisted of 120 pieces of colorful dresses, sweaters, miniskirts and leather jackets. A favorite look was her signature oversized trapeze dress, which one can easily see on any young girl running around town. We were also extremely fond of the leather jacket/miniskirt set adorned with a rocket ship and flames, which the designer wore at the show. She accessorized the collection with quirky long earrings and necklaces assembled from chainlink and scarves. The dynamic shoes were a great addition and the outcome of a brilliant collaboration with twenty year old designer Nicolo Beretta, founder of Giannico shoes. The styles consisted of colorful, pointy spat-like shoes, eclectic sneakers and embellished suede boots. Anna K reached high for the stars with this collection, and she successfully took us along for the ride. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://annak.fashion

ROBERT GELLER F/W 2016

THE GREY MEN

Robert Geller is the German born, New York City designer that gives a much needed kick to American menswear each season. With his Fall/Winter 2016 runway show, we see a stylish gentlemen that fades from a black/grey palette to a very colorful, vibrant one. The very creative Geller took inspiration from the Michael Ende children’s book Momo or The Grey Gentlemen , which he read as a young child. The basis of the book was the struggle of the young, colorful character versus the menacing grey men who take over the city.

Geller gave us his version of well-dressed grey men at the beginning of the show, sending models down the runway in very dark, utilitarian styles. We saw black leather jackets, vests, pants and short gloves, as well as dramatic wool coats, slim turtlenecks and pegged trousers with zippered ankles. Mid-show the grey men evolved into a glorious group of camel, tan and browns. The last looks, which represented the imaginative child character Momo, were much less constrictive in cut and style, which seemed to be a nod to 80s menswear (as opposed to the grey men that had a bit of a 40s retrofuturism feel). This group consisted of brilliant pops in the color palette, including mustard, magenta and reds.

Geller wisely accessorized his men with stylish fedoras, as well as incredible steel studded briefcases by Japanese brand Adachishiki. There was also the terrific collaboration with luxury footwear company Common Projects, particularly a Chelsea boot shown in grey and blue suede.

We musn’t forget to mention the slicked back, pomade hairstyles with paint, that gave a finishing touch to that oh-so-precise Geller look. Unlike the character Momo, we would welcome the grey men taking over our city with that incredible menswear style. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://www.robertgeller-ny.com

CARLOS CAMPOS

F/W 2016

We first grew to appreciate the designs of Carlos Campos while covering his presentation last season. And for his Fall/Winter 2016 debut runway show, Campos did not disappoint. The designer gave us an abundance of looks in hues from a color palette of blue, cream and camel. Signature elements of the collection consisted of utilitarian and classic tailored menswear, with modern safari-like jackets, trenches and dramatic capes. The tan belted trench, worn by model Harry Curran, is every man’s perfect companion for travel. Brushed wools and cotton velveteen fabrics provided texture and luxury to the mix. And every man always needs a great white shirt in his closet, as well as a wide brimmed hat option in the cooler months. Campos wisely keeps his looks modern by showing tailored trousers with sneakers as the shoe option, which is pretty much how stylish New York men get around this gritty city. What really makes us fond of Carlos Campos designs is that they’re not only elegant in design, but also actually seem wearable and masculine at the same time.

ETERNALY YOUTH

Devon Halfnight Leflufy is the incredibly gifted, Antwerp based clothing designer who is well known for his very youthful and innovative creations. Leflufy began creating his line in 2013, and the fashion world was abuzz when his MFA collection from the very prestigous Royal Academy of Fine Arts was scooped up by uber-hip Opening Ceremony. His collection for Fall/Winter 2016 was  distinctively gender-fluid/unisex, shown during men’s fashion week. And it screamed everything about youth! In fact, “Eternal Youth” was not only printed on the collar of a leather jacket, but also on shoes and baseball caps. Standout pieces were characterized by recycled patchwork. There was an incredible mesh top and skirt that were constructed from iPhone cords. Our favorite piece, a beautifully constructed bright yellow over coat belted with iPhone cords, was worn by male model Charlie James. Also noteworthy were the quirky leather bags. Eternal Youth indeed. Photography Alexander Thompson. http://dhalfnight.com

MILITARY MENSWEAR

“New Soldier” was the name of the first ever New York Fashion Week presentation by Los Angeles based clothing label Stampd. Talented Creative Director Chris Stamp, who started the line back in 2011, has in a short time span collaborated with mega brands including the Gap and Puma. The well sought after Stampd is known for streetwear that is both luxurious and minimal. And the label stayed true to their mainly black and white palette this season. The twenty looks shown at the presentation were quite strong in their military inspiration. Our favorite looks included the bombers and M-65’s with straps, as well as the grey sweater with distressed elbows. But perhaps the best look was on model Ian Weglarz – a black trench coat with high collar, shoulder flap and dramatic back straps. This uniform, minimal way of dressing has always been a favorite of ours. Stampd has clearly made their stamp on modern menswear. Photography Alexander Thompson. http://www.stampd.com

DARK ENTRIES

With 80s goth rock band Bauhaus blasting as the intro for the Siki Im + Den Im Fall/Winter 2016 collection, along with some Ministry thrown into the playlist, we knew that this would be our preferred show of the New York menswear season. And it was signed and sealed at first glimpse of Im’s mood board backstage, with images from 80s horror movies like The Hunger and Lost Boys. The German born designer, who studied architecture and worked as head designer for Karl Lagerfeld and Helmut Lang, gave us all things vampire. The palette was made up of black, purple and blood red (of course!). We went mad for the structured leathers accented with zippers, as well as the luxurious cashmere coats and pants. The Peter Murphy/Daniel Ash spiky hairstyles combined with over-the-top, dripped, painted faces left us speechless. And we must mention the incredible men’s casting from the brilliant John Tan. We are enamored with Im’s aesthetic and really never wanted this show to end. Dark Glamour. The Undead.  Who wouldn’t want to be a best dressed vampire?
