There was much hand-wringing in the lead up to NYFW over the fact that the identity of the New York fashion scene is fast becoming one of commercial, almost too-wearable (???) clothes with no original ideas being brought to the table. Yes, taken as a whole, New York is not exactly an incubator for a progressive dialogue in fashion on the same level as other places like Paris or Tokyo. But there are labels, like BLK DNM, that are advancing the narrative of what American sportswear can be. Here are a few of my favorite looks from the BLK DNM SS14 collection. It makes a strong case for the idea that stability in your wardrobe can be compelling and that wearable need not be a pejorative word.
