NYC: Bright Lights, Big City
With more than 300 shows squeezed into an eight-day schedule, it’s no wonder fashion month kicks off here—you need all the energy you can get! This season editors buzzed more than usual thanks to Riccardo Tisci, who brought a piece of Paris (as well as Kanye, Kim and more than 800 members of the general public) to Pier 26 for his boudoir-ready collection for Givenchy. We oohed, we aahed, we Instagrammed, but for me there was zero time to bask in the silky, slip-dressed afterglow: it was full speed ahead to New York’s reigning rulers of cool. From partying with Alexander Wang and Lil Wayne to drooling over Rodarte’s glamrock Victoriana to stepping onto the “red carpet” at Marc Jacobs’ OTT ode to American cinema, one thing’s for sure: I can always count on NYC to put on a show.
