The fall 2013 collections ended about one month ago. On the downside, putting one’s proverbial bow on the season after such a gap (read: writing on deadline; zero moments to spare) does little for a writer’s relationships with editor and copy desk. Yet it has its benefits. Distance makes a ruthless editor. It cuts away at countless shows, many of which featured perfectly fine clothes that have since receded into the seasonal blur, while focusing on the genuinely memorable.
Shows achieve that admittedly personal classification variously—a mood, a nuance, a big splashy production, related off-the-runway news. Yet whatever those particular elements, the distinction invariably comes down to the fashion. How and why did it resonate? Did it leave you awed/thrilled/moved/confused? Outraged? Did it transport you from industry professional to breathless consumer?
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
