Back to School Fashion

Published  8 years ago

At New York Fashion Week, particularly with the September shows, there is always a slight back-to-school feeling whenever all the editors and retailers reconvene, as they did this morning in Lincoln Center, in all their latest finery.

This morning also happened to be the first day of school for most New York City students, and at least in my neighborhood in Brooklyn, the students were better dressed than the fashionistas. I was particularly taken with a young woman who was wearing an oversize white dress shirt backwards and belted. (It’s also Fashion’s Night Out, so that may explain why so many people look done-up today.)
Lincoln Center, meanwhile, was the usual sea of black, brown and beige, apart from Dani Stahl, a Nylon editor, who wore tight bright red pants in the front row of Richard Chai’s show. Amar’e Stoudemire of the New York Knicks, now such a fashion groupie that he threatens to overtake Kanye West, sat between GQ editors in a brown V-neck sweater and hat. So much for the view of the person behind him.
