MAKE AMERICA NEW YORK!
Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, the dynamic duo behind Public School, played the Trump card when they gave the now infamous red “Make America Great Again” trucker cap a makeover. Given the fact that I’ve been a New Yorker for sixteen years now and love the city almost as much as I love the manfriend, I’m all for making America New York. New York is so loving, accepting and encouraging, and I love the fact that designers are using their influence and voices to try and bring acceptance to all people, cultures and ways of life.
And while I’m not a trucker-hat-kinda gal, I would happily sport the red crop Make America New York sweater in a New York minute.
P.S. Way to make a statement.
Velvet continues to be a MAJOR trend and it showed up on the Tome runway in rich shades of both rose and yellow gold. I plan on pulling a George Constanza and draping myself in velvet in the fall since its become socially acceptable. (If you’re not a Seinfeld fan, just Google George Constanza and his obsession with velvet and you’ll totally get it.)
There were also several jackets in the Tome collection that stood out. Black and white with fuzzy sleeves and this gorgeous leather trench that I’m hoping comes in a vegan option, since I always feel guilty about liking real leather. (Even though the manfriend says I should never feel guilty because he’s probably already eaten the cow.)
This is Jonathan Saunders’ second collection for Diane von Furstenberg, having debuted as the Chief Creative Officer for DVF last Spring. The Diane DNA is very much still flowing through the veins of every piece, but Saunders has brought a new and fresh perspective to an established and familiar aesthetic.
I own several DVF wrap dresses, so I’m always excited to see the new versions in each collection. My favorite look from the Fall 2017 presentation was a simple color-blocked shift dress (although simple isn’t really the right word…it is covered in thousands of sequins.) And although DVF is know for the dress, there were a lot of wearable separates in this collection, including some seriously fun and furry midi-coats in powder blue and bright orange.
