NYFW // INSPO

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK // INSPO


Christian Siriano's fall/winter 2020 collection was of course gorgeous and a highlight of New York Fashion week for so many reasons. His structured dress boasted oversized, shapely shoulders, a trapezoid silhouette waist and long mermaid skirt, topped off with a wide-brim hat. Worn by model Coco Rocha, complete with an elaborate runway walk and her own hype person, comedian Leslie Jones. Yes! "Show em how it's done baby!"


I was inspired to pair some of my favorite looks with some of our amazing pieces. I wonder what Christian Siriano's favorite piece would be?

THE KNITTING FACTOR

Ulla Johnson looked to the work of the pioneering 20th-century French architect and designer Charlotte Perriand, who believed good design made for a better life. There were also nods to 1970s-era craft obsessions: thickly crocheted knits, leather pants and belts and a couple of dresses that looked more like American quilts.

The Couture armchair is raw poetry that fuses the artisanal with the industrial. The stitches represent a topographic map and generate an organic pattern that simulates the growth of wood.
