NY Fashion Week, Sept. 4 – 11

It’s all happening before it’s even happened…

Band of Outsiders have cancelled their 2015 presentation. On September 7, the brand is to open a flagship store in Manhattan and it has been said that designer Scott Sternberg, wishes to focus on his new Manhattan endeavour instead. #WeApprove, though we were looking forward to what excellence they would bring. Also on the upside, is that Band of Outsiders have leaked several polaroids which appear to be linked to their Fall ’14 campaign. An untitled tumblr page, consequently named untitled, if you catch wind of the irony, is where the polaroids have been appearing. Though this is also exciting news, it’s rather confusing when we stare at our tabs and one remains ‘untitled.’

It is said that Rebecca Minkoff will be posting two images for her stylish followers to comment upon. Via instagram, she will post the images from her collection, in order for her fashionable clan to vote on their favourite, prior to her September 5 showing at NYFW; the loosing image (that which receives the least votes) will be taken out of the show. It’s definitely a great way to use social media, and interesting to see one way in which a designer is using social media to engage people and involve then in a big fashionable decision. Yes, again #WeApprove

Jonah Hill & Spike Jonze. Contemplating why they are in this news post? Well, the reason why is that they are to write a play for NYFW. The one-act play will be devised for Opening Ceremony, whom Jonze is a regular collaborator for. Openeing Ceremony created capsule collection which was inspired by costumes from Her (Spike Jonze’s 2013 movie). It is unclear, though seems that the play will be showcased September 7.

Gareth Pugh, has probably had the most coverage over his spring/summer 2015 show. Pugh has said that this show will include an “immersive live performance”. It is not completely unheard of at fashion shows, it is definitely something we have seen in parts or as a feature, but the buzz around Pugh suggests that this will be something entirely different. Only time will tell…
