New York Fashion Week Day 1

Posted on February 10 2012

The blackberry’s fully charged, the emergency pair of flats have been stuffed safely in bag and our secret stash of fun sized mars bars are packed and ready to be gorged in private.  Yes ladies and gents, it’s the beginning of the Fashwan Weeks.  Apologies; Fashion Week.  Beyond Retro HQ have a tendency to over enunciate their vowels over this special month, baaaaaabes. So, day one of New York Fashion Week kicked off with a bang yesterday.  Whilst we busy bees were prepping for next week’s festivities in London, our press team have been stalking the shows through our favourite fashion sites (ta, style.com) to see what’s happening in the Big Apple.  New York is known for it’s minimalist functionality when it comes to design as well as an awesome use of colours, so the first few shows didn’t disappoint.  With Jil Sander diffusion range Jil Sander Navy delighting us with collars, kilts and flatforms, modernising the ultimate vintage schoolgirl look.  We’ve coined it “prefect-chic”.  And designer Rachel Comey came away from her usual bold prints, favouring a fresh palette of greys, navy and black on interesting textures and unusual fabrics. Each day we’ll be picking out our favourite show and we’ll be looking at you to help us decide “Show of the Week” at the end of each week.  Our first pick is a fairly biased choice as our head of press has fallen head over heels with this collection and won’t let us choose otherwise.  Although, we kinda have to agree with her as Derek Lam’s lower priced collection, 10 Crosby, is pretty sweet. This cosy, stylish, Seventies smorgasbord plays with silk pajama flares, long t-shirt dresses, mannish tweed trousers and a smattering of fur coats.  The model reminds us of our favourite muses cavorting around a Brooklyn loft apartment.  See Anita Pallenberg chatting with Marianne Faithful over there by the shagpile rug, oh and look at Jimi Hendrix mixing up Diane Keaton’s Annie Hall another martini.  Wearable, chic and just plain cool.  This is certainly a look we’ll be coveting come September.  It just looks so easy, but unless you’re born with it, style this good takes a helluva lot of practise.  Well, we got 8 months to go now…
