We recently attended Reebok’s upcoming SS18 preview and it was by far Reebok’s best collection to date.
Friday night, Hudson Jeans held their SS18 Collection preview in Soho hosted by Kaia Gerber.
Hudson Jeans is a US-based premium denim brand headquartered in Los Angeles, founded in 2002 and an emerging celebrity coveted favorite. Previous faces included Georgia May Jagger, daughter of Mick Jagger, and model Jerry Hall.
The 16 year-old socialite and daughter of legendary model, Cindy Crawford, is the face of the brand’s new campaign alongside counterpart Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis. Kaia was dressed in slim leather jeans from Hudson, Louboutin heels, and a Giorgio Armani corset making her the center of the party. Kaia was joined by models and artists along with Hudson founder, Peter Kim.
The venue space blared music through two levels, the lower level with a dark and intimate vibe running with red lights projected from the walls, and the ground floor as a giant gallery space where guests could grab drinks and mingle. The new campaign was layered throughout the event as mannequins were outfitted with the latest season’s denim which included an up close preview of the capsule collection with Baja East and wall sized prints of the campaign shot by famed photographer, Patrick Demarchelier, featuring Kaia Gerber as the main visual surrounding the studio space.
Guests enjoyed live music from famed DJ TOKiMONSTA and appearances with Ruby Aldridge, Lord Fascinator, Chloe Caillet, Elle Dee and Nick Hadad. The featured drink of the night was Casamigos Tequila cocktails with a sweet and tangy taste.
The Spanish based house known for it’s superior craftsmanship and minimalistic designs, showcased their SS18 collection at NYFW. The collection showed cased sleek pants, knee length skirts, duster coats, and full skirt dresses.
Zhang’s SS18 presentation was a show stopper quite literally. He lined the runway with bright orange traffic cones and an array of traffic signs, a nod to New York City’s chaos and constant construction.
We spoke with Fatima Thomas, M·A·C’s Senior Artist to learn more about the Chromat Spring 2018 collection.
Random Acts of Creativity Founders, Sabrina Burda and Noelle Pallais, bring their nomadic storefront to this year’s Coterie. We got a chance to speak to Sabrina to learn more about how R|A|C collaborated with Coterie to create this unique experience.
The Serbian fashion designer, Roksanda Ilinčić, debuted her new collection at Serpentine Galleries, Kensington Gardens on September 18th.
This past Tuesday, the Domenico Vacca flagship store in New York housed over 500 guests for a presentation of the designer’s SS18 collection, along with the exhibit opening of his collaborator Domingo Zapata.
On September 14th, we made one of our last stops of New York Fashion week at Livari, a zero-waste womenswear label made ethically in New York. The label is a collaboration between Alysia Reiner, best known for playing Natalie “Fig” Figueroa on the Netflix comedy “Orange Is the New Black”; Tabitha St. Bernard-Jacobs, a Women’s March organizer and founder of her fashion label, Tabii Just; and Claudine DeSola, a celebrity stylist and founder of Caravan Stylist Studio.
Not only is Livari a sustainable brand, but it also approaches fit and design to a wide spectrum of all ages and size. The label serves to embody womens’ diversities rather than to the current trend, relaying an authentic and “real” image that women can see themselves in. Livari was also by Hosted IVY, a social club that includes salon discussions with distinguished thought leaders, art nights, cocktail and dinner parties, film screenings, theater and symphony performances, fitness and wellness activities, and getaways.
The collection consisted of monochromatic and neutral colors based on simple and flattering cuts made using unconventional materials like fish leather and root dye. Cohesiveness between the pieces were brought together by the backbone design, printed on t-shirts and dresses that expressed an strong female character whilst conveying a chic and edgy feel. The models showcased were diverse in ethnicity and age, such as a model carrying a her baby down the runway in a pomegranate cherry dress. Conservative looks inspired by Muslim culture included a red hijab with a silver and red patterned stole. While the looks showed limited innovation in design, the clothing invokes a need for community within the fashion industry for all women of races and backgrounds.
After the show, attendees were invited next door to the Hudson Terrace for an after party with live music and drinks.
Celebrating her 20th anniversary, this season Tracy Reese teamed up with Cantu Beauty Products.
Tracy Reese unveiled her spring/summer 2018 collection during New York Fashion Week. The event took place at Pier 59 Studios and was full of fabulous hair moments from models and guest alike. “The inspiration for this show is individual beauty and what the women themselves bring to the clothes” Reese exclaimed. Cantu creates ultra-nourishing beauty products that allow your authentic beauty to shine. Sharing this aesthetic made Cantu x Tracy Reese the perfect match. I got the chance to join all the backstage magic and speak with one of my favorite key hair stylist, Bok-hee.
Check out what she had to say about using Cantu Beauty Products and working with Tracy Reese.
-What was it like using Cantu Beauty Products?
“They are such a great product line. The inspiration was very care free. So what we did was use the co-wash all over the hair to give it a clean fresh look. Then we use the thermal shield to give the hair a more finished look. So if the ends were fried or if the ends were a little bit dry we just used a bit in our hands and ran it through the hair. Then we blow-dried it, or curled it, or gave it whatever it needed. After that, we used the edge stay gel and just put it in the hair so it feels like they’ve been running around a bit, a little sweaty, and a little cool. That was the idea and why we used the Cantu products that way.”
Step 1: Start by spraying roots and lengths of hair with Cantu Refresh Dry Co-Wash for a clean, conditioned base.
Step 2: Next, spray hair with Cantu Thermal Shield Heat Protectant and blow hair out smooth using a round brush.
Step 3: Once hair is smoothed out, use a 1 ½ inch curling iron to create subtle curls at the lengths. When finished, loosen up the curls with your fingers for a more subtle wave.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Step 4: Lastly, mold hairline around the part and face using Cantu Extra Hold Edge Stay Gel to stand up slightly.
