“The inspiration was different movies and TV shows,” said Etienne Russo, who produced Moncler’s wintry extravaganza at Hammerstein Ballroom. “There were a few Disney fairy tales and a bit of Game of Thrones in there…and Paris Is Burning!” Derek Blasberg served as the evening’s emcee, introducing looks that will work well both on- and off-piste.

The show was accompanied by live music from the new york city chamber orchestra.

“This was my 36th Fall collection!” said a post-show Michael Kors. “I never enjoy fashion that feels like a costume. I might wink at Malibu, but I’m never going to send Gidget down the runway!” • Brandon Maxwell wowed the crowd at 4 World Trade Center with killer views and heart-stopping clothes. • Gabriela Hearst unveiled an accomplished collection at The Refectory.

The coif concept for Cushnie et Ochs’ FW17 collection was inspired by the airy, woodsy vibe of Robert Smithson’s Map of Broken Glass.

Jason Carter Rinaldi for Moroccanoil prepped hair with Moroccanoil Treatment, then sprayed Texure Spray to provide a foundational grip for effortless, undone waves. To rehydrate the hair, he added a bit of Moroccanoil Smoothing Lotion.

WEARABLE WONDERS! While fitness trackers and smart watches have become staples in a wearable tech wardrobe, DYNE took things to another level this season with its Fall 2017 collection. Designer Christopher Bevans teamed up with Samsung for a cutting-edge, tech-fueled presentation. Along with ogling the tailored streetwear designs, guests were able to learn where to buy each garment, the price, and materials used, courtesy NFC technology and interactive touchpoint tags.

FASHION’S MOST INSPIRED!

With Samantha Angelo, who co-hosted The Daily x LIFEWTR party

How does art influence your style?  Visual art has influenced my color combinations, silhouettes, textures, layers, and less tangibly, mood and feeling in my styling. Installations and conceptual art have also influenced how I approach fashion. How does art impact your blog? If fashion is art, then The Eye Travels is a canvas. What are you currently thirsting after? I’m currently and always thirsting to connect the dots!

You were discovered on Instagram! I was playing college basketball, working construction, and waiting tables. My mom wanted a deck for her new pool. My friend and I took a picture of me shirtless building the deck and posted it on Instagram. I had only 500 followers, and the next thing I knew I got a call from [agent] Luke Simone saying that he was interested in seeing more. I looked him up and he was legit, and he got back to me and the next thing I knew I was booked for a Nike job. You ended up on Ellen DeGeneres’s show not long after being discovered. How did that happen? Cosmopolitan wrote an article about me becoming an “instant star,” and it was right around the time that Instagram was really kicking off. Once that came out, a bunch of others reached out, like Nightline and the New York Post. Ellen caught the buzz. You’re in the current Dsquared2 campaign. It was shot in L.A. by Mert & Marcus. It was an honor to work with them. I feel the same way about Dean and Dan Caten. I got to work with Gigi Hadid, and my friend Mitchell Slaggert, which was awesome. Any acting goals? That’s definitely the route I want to go. I see myself in romantic movies and comedies. The Notebook is one of my favorite movies!

runwayReport

brandon maxwell “Black or White” by Michael Jackson blared on the speakers as Joan Smalls sashayed down the runway in a micromini leather pleated skirt. Shortly thereafter, George Michael’s “Freedom” charmed the crowd while accompanying some of the fiercest model walks you’ve ever seen. “There were a lot of things that came back from my childhood in this collection— crystals, fur, and leather,” said Maxwell post-show. “I just wanted to be true to myself.” The beauty of Maxwell’s clothes lies in the details, like a white baby doll dress with five layers of collar and the smartly tailored cuff on a classic white blouse. Maxwell specializes in classics, but his execution is anything but basic.

Sensuous, strong, and destined to sell! Kors doesn’t do gimmicks, and his solid Fall collection featured a combination of the house’s signatures, which nodded faintly to the disco decade, yet were reworked in a sexy ’17 spirit. Take the furs, for example—not the least bit prissy, they look equally at home above and below 14th Street. Layered knits, a lamé jumpsuit, and a velvety leopard robe rounded out the mix. “I’m the only designer in history to put the same dress on Lil’ Kim and Sigourney Weaver,” said Kors backstage. That just about sums it up, doesn’t it?

gabriela hearst Cashmere pillows made from leftover yarn from the knitwear company Manos del Uruguay in Hearst’s native hometown adorned the show seats. A classic pale pink wool coat was made from discarded Loro Piana fabric—there will only be enough for 10. Even the floor of the runway will be donated post-show. These eco-friendly details, along with Hearst’s careful consideration of fabrics and tailoring, are the reasons why her two-year-old label can sell alongside Céline. This season, the coats and suiting were knockouts—particularly a Prince of Wales check with matching pants and the ’20s-style drop-waist robe coats. Quietly, strongly stylish pieces that you can expect to see on the likes of a Traina, a Santo Domingo, or, of course, a Hearst.

It was a three-in-one show for Fashion Hong Kong, which brought some of its most promising designers stateside for one big NYFW runway show. The opening act? Cynthia & Xiao, where tassels, tweeds, and loomwoven knits reigned supreme. Following up was menswear designer Harrison Wong, who looked to monastic references, including a medley of robe-like jackets, some with cutouts, hoods, and layers. FHK newcomer Polly Ho closed out the show with fashion that referenced a popular Chinese childhood legend by way of cow and bird motifs and chocolate milk carton purses.

Fuzzy Feelings

When designers are dreaming up their wildest treatments for mink, they turn to Nick Pologeorgis to create the reality. The second-generation furrier is his industry’s undisputed wizard, thanks to his abilities to whip up everything from the most luxurious sable to the latest leather and shearling combos.

What was it like growing up in the fur business? My father worked a lot. As a 3-year-old child, I would come to the factory on Saturday afternoons and watch my father work. We were really busy in the “Lifestyle wintertime, so we never had winter is very vacations! [Laughs] important. Have you seen how fur is used There will always change over the years? be beautiful, classic Lifestyle is very important. There garments, but you also will always be the beautiful, classic want to have fun, garments, but you also want to not-so-precious have fun, not-so-precious pieces. pieces.” The biggest trend is the mixing of fur with ready-to-wear fabric—how it all goes Monse together is important. There definitely has been a push for everything to look slimmer. In the ’80s, the furs were insanely large. When I was graduating college, some of my friends were these petite little girls and they had these insane enormous fur coats with shoulder pads that went all the way to the floor. They all wanted crystal fox coats. I made one for a girl who was 5-foot-1, “The 110 pounds, and the coat was double the size of biggest the girl! It was kind of funny. But today, we do trend is the so many different things. We even have fur-lined mixing of fur sweatshirts. with ready-to-wear What major trends are you seeing these fabric—how it all days? goes together is very Vests are really big right now. I can think back to important.” working with Neiman Marcus for their fur salon in the mid ’90s. Here in New York, we sold vests. But Neiman’s would say, “I know you show us vests. “I did have Michael Kors is all about vests, but we don’t sell a customer come them.” So I’m like, “You know what? I believe in in once, who had his own private jet it. The first thing we’re going to do is make you and he wanted all the a vest program for mink. Take ’em. I’ll give you staff to have reversible a classic-shape vest in three colors. If you sell mink coats and sables them, you sell them. If you don’t, you don’t.” They throws on the plane sold everything. for the guests.” Your dad worked with designers like Pierre Balmain. Do you have any memories of that time? I was very young, but my father worked with Pierre Balmain and [James] Galanos when nobody worked with designers. Now, we work with The Jet-Set 20 designers a season! My father was the first of (From top) Polothe American manufacturers to go to Europe to the georgis Spring 2017; designer fur Frankfurt fur fair, which was the largest fur fair in from Pologeorgis; the world. He would show Europe what the American owner Nick manufacturers did. Pologeorgis.

Who are your staples? We’ve been working with Michael Kors for many years. Zandra Rhodes from London, Monique Lhuillier, and Derek Lam are the ones that I license. We did Monse this year. We love Laura [Kim] and Fernando [Garcia]. That was a fun project. They are super talented and nice to work with, too. Tell us about the Pologeorgis label. Where can we find it? We had a really great season this year with Moda Operandi, especially now that they have their flagship store on Madison Avenue. It’s in the old Pucci Mansion. We’re also able to offer this collection to specialty boutiques that may need a lower price point, and then we’re able to work with retailers like The Line and Moda Operandi, where their clientele is different. Of course, we work with bigger sellers like Neiman’s, Bergdorf, and Saks; we also do a big private label business and projects with Barneys. What kind of fur is most popular right now? Mink and shearling, especially for the younger contemporary clientele. What is the best sable money can buy? Sable is the most expensive. The more gray hairs a sable has, the more expensive it is. Maybe 25 percent of all the sables in the world have the gray hair—and there aren’t that many sables in the world. I buy all our furs myself at auction. What keeps designers like Michael Kors working with you for decades? Keeping it innovative. For instance, designers love to do flower patterns in the fur. There’s a lot of labor to it—the dying of the colors, the leathering of the back, making it like a mink shearling, sable shearling, and so on. What’s the craziest thing anyone’s ever asked you to create in terms of fur? Once, a customer with his own private jet wanted me to make reversible mink coats for the entire crew, as well as sable throws for guests to use in the air. We’ve done a fur skirt for a Christmas tree. I’ve done coats that have the longest trains imaginable. We’ve even done bathrobes lined in fur. What famous women have worn your fur? Elizabeth Taylor. We’ve also made a custom coat for Aretha Franklin. We’ve worked with Rihanna. And we made a beautiful white mink for Serena Williams. What sets your company apart from other furriers? We’re quality-driven, and we’re very fair. We treat our customers carefully, and we’re innovative. We want to make sure we make the best, which I feel we do! ß

BOOTH 8219 FALL WINTER 2017 COLLECTION Coterie

Jacob Javits Center, NYC

|

FEBR UARY 27 - MARCH 1, 2017


SHOWTime NEW VISIONS From reimagined booths to use of innovative technologies, like virtual reality, Coterie is offering a trade show experience that is highly attuned to the digital age.

Danielle Licata

“we’re hoping that buyers will think of coterie in a new way.”

Fresh experience

Coterie promises to break outside the trade show box with a plethora of new, interactive, and educational components. Danielle Licata, VP/GM of Coterie, fills us in! By kristen heinzinger

Danielle, you have been in the fashion world for quite some time. Stella McCartney was my biggest growth moment—I was there for almost six years and learned a tremendous amount. When I left I was head of all wholesale and operations. I went from Stella to Belstaff, where I oversaw men’s and women’s wholesale business and helped to relaunch Belstaff from a heritage brand back to luxury. Then I made the segue over to Coterie. Why’d you make the move, and what is your role? Coterie is a household name in the fashion industry, and the largest women’s fashion trade show globally. Many brands, small and large, have launched at Coterie, and it has consistently been a must-attend event. Coterie has a great brand roster and loyal following—it always has, dating back to the Plaza Hotel. There is always a reason to visit and see your favorite domestic brands, as well as new global players. What newness can we expect to see? One major new initiative is a learning component happening during the show—we partnered with L2, owned by Scott Galloway. He’s extremely enigmatic, and works with an amazing brand roster. The key takeaway will be how to succeed in an economy that is not necessarily growing at rapid pace. Now that specialty stores can have a website and can ship globally, how do you engage a customer who might not necessarily walk past your showroom or door? What else is on the lineup? Our second main initiative is to create an area that is basically a take on the Coterie brand floor, dissected into vignettes. It’s called the Coterie Experience, and it’s 4,000 square feet and FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M

located in the main entrance. It will show stores’ specific points of view, whether it’s minimalist and clean or a very avant-garde or pop moment. We partnered with Edge Media to create augmented reality triggers that will cue up brands’ information. For example, if you walk into the space, you’ll see armies of mannequins and beautiful merchandising, but if you hold the iPad that you’re given over specific pictures or specific objects, stories will come to life. What’s the aim of these new offerings? We’re hoping that buyers think of Coterie in a new way. It’s a large show filled with more than 1,000 brands. We’re selecting key pieces that make a statement and displaying it in a way that’s really compelling. They might think, “I don’t need to shop that side of the floor. That’s not really my customer.” But we’re here to say, “Look at this—is this your customer? Okay, now let us teach you about the brand.” There are a million ways to dissect every brand, but the key to the specialty stores, and to being competitive in this marketplace, is to have a really clear point of view. Where else will this experience pop up? We also have an active installation in which models will wear the activewear lines and do virtual-reality sports within the space. Coterie has not really had models in the past, so this is a move to really show product on the body. The goal for the Coterie of the future is to create more neighborhoods by brand and style tribe. That way we can make the buyers’ experience at Coterie really seamless, where they know no matter how big the show is, they’re going to be able to buy the things that they need very efficiently. ß

data dude Meet Scott Galloway, academic turned fashion entrepreneur who created L2, a membership-based brand that ranks companies in the luxury market and creates reports on how everyone from LVMH to Estée Lauder to Kering Group stacks up. This year, Coterie is bringing his expertise to showgoers for a series of educational moments. Here’s a taste of what to expect. Take notes! The class: “Sessions will cover everything from Amazon to omnichannel to winners and losers in a digital age.” Social first: “Instagram is the new Condé Nast. Leverage new tools and platforms to help consumers discover product, and develop a core group of followers that you can enlist as evangelists.” Persistence is key: “People make the mistake of thinking that social is a platform that will just take genius and explode it; it’s not. It takes work every single damn day. Young designers need to figure out what platform feels right.” E-Influence: “The biggest mistake managers make in retail companies is they size their digital investment based on the size of their e-commerce revenues. The majority of the ROI will be recognized in the store. So it’s not a discussion of e-commerce; it’s a discussion of e-influence.” courtesy

If there was a soundtrack of the season, it would be… A mixtape titled “Inspiration Information” featuring some ’90s hip-hop, a little Arthur Russell, some Thomas Brinkmann and Max Richter, a bit of postpunk, and a lot of dancehall and reggae!

the levy group

Dawn Levy, owner What are you looking forward to about your Coterie debut? I really hope that we can gain placement with some great specialty stores that may not have been able to see us in the past. We are a family-owned company, and we believe in supporting other family-owned businesses, like many of our specialty stores. Where can we find you on social media? Instagram @DawnLevyDesign, Twitter @DawnLevy, and on Facebook. Like us, comment, and by all means, tag us if you’re wearing Dawn Levy!

POLOGEORGIS

M.I.N.N.E.

Jack Wong, designer What’s new for Fall? I am experimenting with treatment mixes, and blending that with traditional clothing by adding elements of nature’s beauty. What’s your claim to fame? Capturing the vision and identity of a brand and designing that recognition for the customer.

NICOLE MILLER

NICOLE MILLER

Nicole Miller, designer & Founder What are your favorite NYC nightlife spots? I haven’t been to Paul’s Casablanca yet, but what’s funny about it is that I had my son’s eighth-grade party in the same space. How do you stay calm these days? I’m big on number games, but not Sudoku. The more obscure Japanese number games. Or I’ll go out to dinner—Augustine is my favorite—and drink a glass of wine.

NOEL ASMAR

Noel Asmar, CEO & Creative Director What’s the inspo for Fall? The Fall ’17 collection is an expressive design journey that celebrates the modern woman with clean lines and a cultivated taste. The rich color palette echoes a majestic boldness reflective of nature. What’s the brand’s claim to fame? Our brand dressed the [Canadian] equestrian team at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.

REPEAT CASHMERE

OATS CASHMERE

Debra McKelvey-Hayburn, designer What’s new for Fall? Fall ’17 is ultra feminine with ruffles, cold shoulders, off-the-shoulders, and pretty bows. Girl power! Do you have a nickname? Our factory owner calls me “Sweater Queen”!

POLOGEORGIS

DESIGN TEAM What will we see for Fall ’17? Sportswear shapes interpreted in luxe fabrics. Hoodies, sweatshirts, puffers—innovative combinations of fur and fabrics in withered rose, French navy, bottle green, and burgundy wine. What makes Pologeorgis furs unique? Our rich history of design and manufacturing in NYC—over 60 years. We are proud to be familyowned and -operated for two generations.

REPEAT CASHMERE

Melissa Passarella, Chief Sales Officer, REPEAT USA What was the design focus this season? Layering, specifically exaggerated deep V-necks, cropped styles, and bracelet sleeve lengths. Who’s the muse? Doutzen Kroes, who has been our model and the international face of REPEAT for several seasons. She reflects and embodies the warmth and softness of our cashmere.

Agent RED International

Lauren Grossman, designer & owner What sets your brand apart from others? We have a layering concept that you can dress up or down, and nothing goes out of style. Chic is always in! What’s the theme for Fall? Dark chocolate. The marketplace has been filled with black and 50 shades of gray for years. Brown is the new black!

Genie Parada-Fishman, owner What’s new? I’m excited about integrating American brands into the mix. We truly offer a well-edited and well-rounded selection of brands that have staying power. What sets your showroom apart from others? Our perspective. We seek to learn about anything new and exciting. Our brands have a soul and a story to tell. Consumers are searching for inspiration.

RUDSAK

EQUESTRIAN DESIGNS

evik asatoorian, designer What sets your brand apart? Our commitment to quality and always using the finest materials and craftsmanship in our products. If there was a soundtrack to this collection, it would be… Rock ’n’ roll, always—something a bit moody, but still playful and energetic.

Oats Cashmere

RUDSAK

IONA MARSHALL, designer Who’s the face for Fall? Chloe Lattanzi, for her youthful energy and media savvy! What’s your lesser-known career highlight? I had a early gig at Trashy Lingerie, where I worked on Madonna’s cone bra and fitted and made patterns for a Dolly Parton Christmas special in the ’80s.
