Much of the news to come out of New York Fashion Week was the return of the lady. This is a lady who has lunch at a farm-to-table, ethnic-mashup counter on the far west and east edges of the city, though, not the white-glove Midtown brasserie.
Fashion brands such as Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera and Escada, which have long been associated with polish and sophistication came out roaring with new designers, who all seemed to share an ethos with their founders – but they put their clothes squarely in today. Most of the trends were 90 percent expected or at least safe. There was about 10 percent that were a look that’s not been worn before.
Some of my personal faves were the foretold in the street style of celebs and influencers attending the shows, like beauty Kelly Rowland and her multicolored striped sweater dress and the sublime Caroline Daur in her neon windbreaker and the recently controversial, yet still, inspirational Kendal Jenner in her vintage-T and red leopard pants. The perfect match in fragrance for this season’s fashion statements is KIERIN NYC with its bold, colorful collection of premium eau de parfums available at an affordable price. My favorite being Sunday Brunch, a unique, citrusy and cheerful scent celebrating the real lifestyle of NYC.
