BAMIN NOTES | Trend: Mix & Match Utilitarian & Luxury Looks Like the Best of NYFW’s Street Style

New York Fashion Week just happened, and the best street style we saw didn’t resist the bitter NYC cold snap. The most innovative outfits managed to work with the freezing temperatures, combining more practical pieces like denim and even duck shoes with patterns, bright coats and fur jackets. While documenting NYFW’s street style for Vogue, photographer Phil Oh snapped a photo of model, stylist and writer Natalie Cantell mixing patterns and colors by rocking a leopard and orange neomesh BAMIN duffel. The mash-up of leopard and neomesh creates a fantastic contrast of high-low fabrics, and we really love how much the leopard and neon orange pops next to Natalie’s navy blue and black ensemble. Street style in NYC has always been about mixing high fashion with the utilitarian for looks that are both innovative and effortless.

MOMENTS | Mash-up: Wong Kar-wai x NYFW, The Met Previews China: Through the Looking Glass Exhibition

Last September, the Metropolitan Museum of Art announced that acclaimed filmmaker Wong Kar-wai would provide the art direction for its upcoming China: Through the Looking Glass exhibition. The exhibition is a collaborative project between The Costume Institute and the Department of Asian Art and explores the ongoing relationship between Western and Chinese culture—juxtaposing high fashion with traditional Chinese costume, film, and art. It’s NYFW, and with Chinese New Year just a few days away, the Met gave a perfectly timed preview of the upcoming exhibition. China: Through the Looking Glass opens on May 7th and runs through August 16th.

1. London Fashion Week FW14 is underway! The incredible mind of Tim Blanks delivered a thought provoking review of Christopher Kane’s FW14 collection. Blanks described Kane’s collection as “[Never] just about this. There is also that…and that…and that. As one story was poking you, another was insinuating itself”.
