NYFW Spring/Summer 2016 Day 7

I had to pick among some morning shows and I finally decided to do the Thomas Wylde at Moynihan station because I was rather tempted by the designer’s previous collections and wanted to see more. And it payed me off since the brand’s offerings were real show-stoppers!

Studded leather pieces and flowing creations were all quite sexy, revealing and chic. Decorated with hardware and showing lots of skin, yet extremely sophisticated and expensive-looking, those outfits were for fearless fashionistas! During this show I also met Kelly Fountain, a new Marie Claire intern, who really inspired me with her professional attitude and passionate spirit! I definitely wish her good luck in the fashion industry and we decided to keep in touch exchanging views and ideas every now and then!

I dedicated my 5-hour break to a very good friend I had lunch with at Sant Ambroeus, Upper East Side, which is, by the way, my favorite spot for brunch! Some window-shopping around Madison Avenue further completed the experience, with gorgeous finds at the Chanel store!

The Demoo Parkchoonmoo show at Pier 59 Studios in Chelsea was equally exciting with impeccable color-block boxy silhouettes emulating the shapes and shades of a traditional Korean lantern.


Along the sporty spirit of the brand, the designer created some dressier versions full of asymmetries and androgynous elements. Flowy was structural and see-through was not at all revealing. Even in the most ethereal creations, I could see the geometry of it, and behind the most cutting-edge designs I sensed a conservative attitude.

And the rest of the night belonged to us, attending with my hubby the Inside Amato Film Premiere and the Art Hearts Fashion Gala at Liberty Theater. The movie was all about the designer’s effort to create a Couture collection and how he communicates his vision to people he is collaborating with. He’s been dressing throughout his career an array of A-listers and that’s why it was really insightful to see the creative process behind his work. My evening look for the gala included an embroidered Carven jacket and a maxi see-through Stella & Jamie skirt which grabbed much of the attention. My late dinner – in this attire – was at ‘The Ribbon’ which is a yummy option after a fashion party like this!
