1. Raf Simons’s Calvin Klein Debut Starts NYFW on a High NoteRaf Simons’s first fashion show for Calvin Klein might just be the most anticipated fashion-world sự kiện since the Battle of Versailles. That surely put a lot of pressure on the Belgian import & his close-knit team of creative partners including ông xã creative director Pieter Mulier & artist Sterling Ruby. They handled it well, presenting a collection at ông xã HQ of artsy-yet-wearable pieces that ranged from the strange—see that vinyl-covered yellow faux-fur coat—to the practical—hello, kiểm tra blazers and roomy jeans—under a Ruby installation comprised of thành phố new york City detritus hanging from the ceiling. If the show itself put people in a good mood, the after-party, which culminated with Simons giving a brief thank-you speech at 3:00 a.m., only bettered it.


2. Political Statements Lurked Around Every CornerTo recap every instance of politicking on the NYFW runways this season could take days. Instead, let’s talk about the memorable examples. In the direct category were Public School’s “Make America New York” caps, Prabal Gurung’s political tees, & the founders of the Women’s March speaking (and dancing) at Mara Hoffman. LRS printed “No Ban, No Wall” on the bum of a pair of knickers. The CFDA made Planned Parenthood pins and then pledged to lớn donate $5 for every photo hash tagged with #istandwithpp. & in his signature fearless fashion Jeremy Scott sent out a collection inspired by idol worship that warned of the dangers of blind faith while simultaneously serving up tees that read Sex is Cute. In the hurricane of sloganeering this season, that’s one tee we’d like to wear for years lớn come.


3. Before NYFW, Fashion Went WestIf there was any doubt that Los Angeles is fast becoming the go-to spot for the fashion crowd, Tommy Hilfiger & Rachel Comey’s West Coast shows should clear it up. Held in the days leading up to NYFW, just as Hedi Slimane’s Saint Laurent blowout was one year ago, these celebrity-filled extravaganzas served lớn reinforce the thành phố of Angels’s status as a major contender on the international scene—and to lớn increase the number of days in fashion month.

The week started off with Julianne Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Millie Bobby Brown, a trio of Moonlight actors, and A$AP Rocky at Calvin Klein, và continued with Huma Abedin at Prabal Gurung và Chelsea Clinton at Tanya Taylor.
