NYFW is back in full swing and we went out in a freezing New York City just to find you all the best brands and collection to watch for the autumn winter 2023 season and the not so good ones to just dismiss.
The Crack : Rodarte
Definitely the show to not miss this season. Rodarte made its return to the NYC runway scene with a whimsical collection of goth ferries. We even felt like half the collection was taken out Morticia Addams’s wardrobe.
The Crack : Simhkai
If we had to put one word on this collection it would be “Power”. Jonathan Simhkai’s FW2023 collections featured a lot of bold leather silhouettes with jeweled metalic accents and powerful oversized suiting, Bref, we left from the show ready to conquer the world!
The Crack : Patbo
Another successful NYFW show and promising new collection for the Brazilian brand, Patbo. For the second time and even more this time the brand has been shifting to more structured, evening wear and couture like designs. Thousands of hand place crystals on delicate lace dresses and bejeweled denim pieces which we couldn’t take our eyes from.
The Crap : Christian Siriano
Ok, not everything at the show sucked, there were many wrapped, tulle and voluminous silhouettes that saved the designer’s show but for the most part the deigns felt old school with very minimal craftsmanship efforts and made out of cheap fabric. It’s as if he went to the oldest fabric store in garment district and asker for the cheapest fabric. Bref, we were not impressed!
The Crap : Tia Adeola
AT this point, it seems like they are asking for it. There was almost no difference from the two previous collections, same patterns, same materials, and same low quality craftsmanship. We don’t know what’s happening internally but they apparently do not care in putting any creative or artistic efforts in the their creations.
The Crap : Cinq A Sept
The whole collection felt like a failed Miu Miu clin d’oeil, the faux fur looked so FAUX! (low quality) and the overall looks were just boring. Basically, there was nothing exiting happening in that collection.
