With a star-studded front row — Kanye West, Victor Cruz and J.R. Smith — John Elliott debuted his first runway collection. The lineup centered around a youthful athletic aesthetic that New York designers seem not ready to let go. Highlights included a gray wool bomber jacket over a tonal sweatshirt, with shorts layered over black mélange tights. The strong outerwear offering, mixed with interesting yet familiar layering techniques, allowed for a solid first runway effort and makes Elliott a talent to watch.
