Before the runway show commenced, attendees got a chance to chomp down on bags of freshly made truffle oil popcorn (which I must admit tasted like heaven) and partake in the Crown Royal life by drinking some of the liquor brand’s many mixtures. Can you say Crown Royal on ice?
Iridium had a lot of anime and cartoon prints in their collection for both ladies and gentlemen. Camouflage and other prints must really be in this season because I saw them in every single collection. If you’re a girl with a passion for comic books and super heroes, Iridium’s latest line is perfect for you. It’s definitely a look I haven’t seen before, but it can be interesting when styled correctly.
Sir & Madame presented a more urban hipster take on street style. Their pieces for men and women featured prints, which as I said before seemed to be the theme of the night. A peacock skirt from Sir & Madame hit the runway paired with a sheer orange blouse and cheetah print wedge heels; it’s sure to be a winner among the ladies. For men, the brand offered bags and really hipster shirts. There was a camouflage shirt that I particularly loved because it was two-toned and featured elbow patches. Every man should have a least one shirt, sweater or sport coat with elbow patches.
Overall, the event was a celebration of urban style, which we don’t see often enough in the fashion industry. The featured trend was prints for men and women, including tribal, floral, animal and camouflage.
