Day 3 was a Sunday and bitter cold. I usually spend Sundays with my husband and friends so it was very strange to get up that morning to do something other than brunch, Mimosas and Bloody Marys.
Even though it was a Sunday, and the flocks of fashionistas could not rest, the street style that day reflected the relaxed and care-free mode of a weekend.
Stop 1 was Giulietta. The designer Sofia Sizzi described this collection as a mix of the “the Italian beauty, who is feminine and classic and the French woman, who is androgynous and modern.” Her vision was clearly brought to life in every single piece, which represented both paradoxes ever so clearly. From the edgy architectural patterns on the classic fitting skirt and shirt, to the lady-like flowly embellished and velvet dresses. Another trend present in this sizzling collection was the vintage 70’s silhouettes updated to the 2014 modern women’s standards. So chic, so soft and so edgy all at once!
After stuffing my face at Jack’s Wife Freda – the best brunch place in NYC, I took a little break to regain consciousness in my toes and legs before heading over to Lincoln Center for the Oudifu show.
The Oudifu show was to die for. Every single piece was so innovative and distinct, yet so wearable. The collection varied from pieces that were so fab and over the top, to pieces that were more subtle, which really captures the many different types of self expression in fashion. While fur took center stage here, the shown a light on his Chinese culture, infusing cultural patterns into the collection. What really stood out in Oudifu’s design is the incredible versatility, with many pieces appropriate and appealing to women of all ages. The collection covered early 20’s up to the late 50’s, without any pieces looking dated.
