Here was the (instagram) week that was – @reiddamnit – follow up son!
So I have lived in NYC for close to 8 years and unbelievably haven’t visited the New York Public Library, what a bad New Yorker I am. But I rectified this last week and checked out an exhibit titled Lunch Hour NYC and kind of had a blast cycling around the city on such a beautiful day.
And then I had to visit one of my suppliers and rode through Times Square and saw this guy…
I’ve been working chronically hard on samples and new projects…okay and taking loads of photos for instagram. While you wait for something fashion related here are some of my favourites —>>
The onset of Spring in New York is heralded not so much by daffodils or tulips but by the presence of models wondering the streets. These genetically bless creatures with impossibly long limbs, swinging shiny hair and skin dermatologists dream about materialize on subways and sidewalks for Fashion Week in NYC. I worked the back end pouring wine at a couple of events giving me the side curtain view like a peeking child.
One of the smaller shows was Bodkin. The event was held at the Horticultural Society Offices, tying in perfectly their commitment to sustainable, eco-friendly fashion. From underneath the Fig Tree I got a great site line of what Fall/Winter 09/10 will see you and I wearing. With a relaxed atmosphere of music playing and yours truly pouring pinot gris, it felt more like a house party somewhere off of the L train. The crowd were cool kids no doubt from L.E.S or BK. The collection was definitely geared toward this crowd – rompers, micro dresses, skin tight leggings – overall extremely wearable. With the likes of Lykke Li vamping it up in their gears, count me in.
