New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2021 – Teddy Vonranson Sends a Love Letter to NYC

“The city knows you better than any living person because it has seen you when you are alone” borrowed from The Colossus of New York by Colson Whitehead.

The NY-based fashion designer Teddy Vonranson starts with this quote and continues about his FW21 concept in his own words:

It was important to me that this collection is about New York City. Spending time apart was grounding and reflective but I was eager to be reunited. And though it may feel as if we lost the vibrant energy that is the signature of NYC, the colors are still there for those who have the eyes to see and make the effort to use their imagination. I, for one, chose warmth over coldness for my Fall/Winter collection, a warm celebratory feeling usually reserved for a vacation wardrobe. I embraced playful juxtapositions like mixing traditional English tweeds and checks back to rayon Hawaiian prints; an emerald green suede jacket over a bright yellow wool sweater and a palm leaf shirt; a pink wool suit over a mauve sweater and a tweed hat; a red wool suit over a tan nubuck shirt paired with ivory sunglasses; a jade wool jacket combined with a black Hawaiian print that reminds me of the city lights at night; a valiant attempt to repay NYC for all the prior love she bestowed on me. My Fall/Winter 2021 collection is an optimistic love letter to the NYC I cherish through the merging of East Coast and West Coast references that have become my signature. I call it Manhattan Island.

We love the message and the eclectic combos of motifs, colors, and texture in this collection, so we endorse 100%!
