CHRISTIAN COWAN

Christian Cowan is the young handsome and oh-so-talented designer that we fell in love with last season. And this season was another love affair with his creative and colorful collection that was sent down the runway for Spring/Summer 2019.

CALVIN LUO
FALL 2018

Calvin Luo’s most recent collection, for Fall 2018, took a walk on the wild side with 50s subculture rebel inspiration – think photographer Karlheinz Weinberger, a Ponyboy favorite. Young and eclectic, we just love it!

Enamored is what we are of brilliant designer Feng Chen Wang’s bold menswear statements. Last season we just couldn’t get enough of her “Made In China” collection for SS 2018. And her Fall 2018 season was just as strong with her coming home theme.

GEORGINE

SPRING 2017

Georgine Ratelband, the designer for New York City womenswear label Georgine, gave us the quintessential mix of uptown meets downtown, an updated and glamorous 90s grunge collection. It’s exactly what a young girl gets when she raids her mom’s closet with beautiful designer pieces, but she throws in some combat boots, red smudged lipstick and a messy bob, a la Courtney Love. Season after season, Georgine is in tune with what young, hip, cosmopolitan women want. Her past collections have been refreshing and luxurious, with a distinct New York City edge.  And for Spring/Summer 2017, Georgine held fast to her roots. We saw her classic fur pieces (always a favorite), as well as trench coats, slip dresses, sequins and cut-outs. Georgine sprinkled some punk into the collection, for example,  safety pins forming an anarchy symbol on the back of a silver metallic leather jacket, which was truly stunning. There was a black bra gown with slits from top to bottom which were held together by hundreds of small safety pins, a fabulous nod to Gianna Versace’s S/S 1994 safety pin collection. Our favorite pieces were the long metallic t-shirt dresses and the day-glo, spotted yellow fur coats. Onward, Georgine! Photography Alexander Thompson http://www.georgine.com/

S/S 2017

Libertine designer Johnson Hartig is all about having fun, and quite a lot of it obviously. With his whimsical and colorful creations, the looks he sends down the runway are such a refreshing sight season after season. For Spring/Summer 2017, Hartig paid homage to Brit punk with his anti-establishment clothing, which included a leather jacket with painted text stating, “We hate everything”, featured on boxer/model Charlie Himmelstein. The two Union Jack coats were iconic, as were the Queen Elizabeth II emblems and print. We must mention a bright yellow day-glo shift dress, the sequin bomber with tiger emblem on the back and the 50s coat with colorful painted spots.  The printed “#Chic As Hell” pieces were to die for, including the pink overcoat, a dramatic black & white floor length number and the plastic raincoat look. We found the hot pink printed tights to be a fond flashback and nod to fantastical pop art designer Stephen Sprouse! And lastly, we must not forget the print of the punk with text on his forehead, “Libertine No Future”.  Undoubtedly, we see the brightest of futures for the Libertine label.

S/S 2017

Designer Becca McCharen-Tran stated that, “The Chromat SS17 HYPERWAVE collection is inspired by the strength and power of professional female athletes like Serena Williams, Simone Manuel and flyboard world champion Gemma Weston, who push both their bodies and their sport to the extreme.” She scored well with this athletic based collection. Everything seemed bold and modern with attention to detail, the body and cut – classic Chromat. Signature color-blocking, mesh, cut-outs and neoprene on bikinis, bodysuits, etc. filled the runway. And unlike many other designers, she actually designs for all body types and shows her runway collections on different shapes and sizes. Thank you for keeping it real!

A DÉTACHER FALL 2016

CITY GIRL ON THE PRAIRIE

We’ve always been fans of the somewhat obscure and small scale New York City womenswear line known as A Détacher. And designer Mona Kowalska did not disappoint this season, sending models down her Fall 2016 runway with Victorian and 80s references. Oversized was a key element with the downtown designer’s collection, which is a signature element in many of her collections. The show opened with a dramatic round shouldered quilted black coat that definitely caught the crowd’s attention. There were very beautiful knits, layered one on top of another, including soft cape-like collars and sweet ruffled-sleeve dresses. A very 80s inspired plaid culotte jumpsuit and gorgeous pink and grey floral print dresses breezed down the runway. Let’s not forget to mention the genius leather skirt reminiscent of a pair of chaps, the oversized leather belt/waist cinchers and the furry clogs. Of note were the quirky braided hairstyles that were joined at the ends, adding to the western/prairie feel of the collection. This unique collection is definitely a city girl’s “go to” during the cold winter season. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://adetacher.com

LIBERTINE F/W 2016

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

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

APPLIQUE´S GALORE!

What don’t we love about Libertine? We were dazzled by the Spring/Summer 2016 collection shown during New York Fashion Week. Libertine creative Johnson Hartig gave us appliqués galore! The whimsical patches were thrown on everything, including coats, dresses, and a dramatic cape. There was a gorgeous long, green evening coat overloaded with appliqués, as well as a too cute white jacket shown with skinny cigarette pants. The overall feel of the collection had a sixties/seventies vibe, but with a Libertine twist. Hartig gave us both men’s and women’s silver sequined tracksuits, which shimmered down the runway, as if disco balls had been brought to life. There was a trio of printed flowing kaftans that will  demand attention at any hip, summer pool party. Chunky, neon chain links adorned clothing, bracelets and shoes.  And then there was the unforgettable chain link vest that closed the show. However, our very favorite look had to be the “Spaghetti Suit” that had appliqués which consisted of forks with beaded dangling spaghetti. Delicious! It left us craving more Libertine.

BOBBY ABLEY F/W 2015

THE CONCRETE JUNGLE

The New York debut of UK menswear designer Bobby Abley’s Fall/Winter 2015 presentation rekindled memories of 1990’s club kids. Abley’s set at Milk Studios focused around a rather large banana sculpture with male models propped on top, a perfect touch for the designer’s witty and youthful collection. Inspiration was drawn from the Disney movie Jungle Book. Jungle Book character faces were placed on sweatshirts, like Bagheera the black panther, and Baloo the bear. However, the strongest look was set center stage–a yellow banana print puff jacket worn on fuschia haired model Dylan Hall. Another fabulous ensemble consisted of a vibrant red track suit with a cinched cropped jacket and bold Bobby Abley lettering down the pants. Additional rave elements included accessories like backpacks, trainers and red fuzzy hats. This collection was all about having fun, which is exactly what we did. We just went bananas for this flashback! Photography Alexander Thompson.

ROCHAMBEAU
F/W 2015

ROCHAMBEAU F/W 2015

THE NEW YORK WINTER

Rochambeau menswear designers Joshua Cooper and Laurence Chandler took inspiration from the gritty, wintery streets of New York City in their Fall/Winter 2015 collection. The set was adorned with huge blocks of ice that were filled with odds and ends, much like the garbage you find on the streets of NY, including cigarette butts, umbrellas, metrocards, and an old slice of pizza. The brilliant collection incorporated both modern, futuristic looks as well as militaristic looks. Garments made of sleek, high-tech fabrics were shown alongside heavy, tactical-looking combat wear. Design details included industrial belt straps and oversized pockets. And accessories were comprised of large flashlights and Timberland boots. We love that this design duo stays true to their Rochambeau masculine aesthetic, as well as that they produce every piece of clothing in New York City. Photography Alexander Thompson.
