NYFW Nanette Lepore Presentation Spring/Summer 2016
Bet On Nanette
Do you know how incredibly difficult it is to walk in 5 inch flat-forms on a cobblestone road? For emphasis, I am going to answer my rhetorical question - it is very difficult. So difficult, it's a skill. A skill that I would like to believe I mastered as I stumbled down Broome street making my way to the Nanette Lepore Boutique. I didn't know what to expect from Nanette Lepore, as I was guest blogging for the lovely Esther Santer (Louboutins and Love), and had never been to a Nanette presentation before. Upon entering the boutique, the energy was electric. However, instead of a typical fashion show, there was a party being carried out. Nanette had filled the space with art by Stefan Eins, music by Tiki Disco, and models wearing the new Nanette Lepore Spring/Summer '16 collection.
Nanette had managed to beautifully orchestrate a sense of "inside out" in her collection. Pieces were either bright and full of electric colors or more detailed and monochromatic. Some pieces even included a collaboration with Eddie Eddie by Billy Tommy and had phrases embroidered on them for a fun and youthful twist. However, all pieces were perfectly strung together by Nanette's signature gyspy-like aesthetic. People danced, admired the beautiful collection, and snapped pictures. I was even lucky enough to meet cast members of Orange is the New Black! By the end of the night, Nanette and all the models spontaneously turned into a giant Congo Line perfectly representing how fun and carefree the collection was!
Until next time xx
