BLK DNM SS14

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.

ThreeAsFour SS14

Image

I’ve decided that I am against writing “reviews” of shows that one doesn’t actually attend. Each show has its own atmosphere and point of view, and things like set design and accompanying music go a long way towards establishing a prism through which the collections should be seen. But of course, I have been following NYFW, and I will be sharing some of my favorite looks from the SS14 collections that I found most intriguing (there haven’t been many so far, unfortunately). Here, a few looks from ThreeAsFour that I love. Genius construction and play with volume that doesn’t take itself too seriously. The expertly edited color palette serves to throw it all into sharper relief.
