What's New at Hirshleifers - January 2019
January 10, 2019
With oodles of frayed silk and tulle to spare, Thom Browne's nautical-themed spring collection continues to blend the boundary between wearable fashion and performance art. First shown on a beachside boardwalk runway, the collection was, and is, beautiful -- its artistry and irreverence unmatched.
Calvin Klein 205W39NYC
For what would turn out to be his final collection, Raf Simons turned yet again to America's cultural past -- ingraining in his 205W39NYC collection a vision based on an ode to "The Graduate" albeit with a maritime vibe. Think logo varsity jackets paired with fisherman-esque knits and pleated asymmetrical skirts for the ladies and a tailored scuba aesthetic for the gents (cut big with plenty of room to spare).
Wearable midi lengths and exceptional tailoring made for a particularly grown up Miu Miu spring collection. Neat and clean, with a spot of leopard print on a collar or dash of faux python print in the form of a skirt, the pieces were among the most minimalist Prada's sister brand has delivered in quite some time. Logo free and nondescript to a tee, pops of color in the flavorful accessories helped provide a jovial jolt.
