Our partnership with Milk Made brought some amazing up-and-coming designers to The Standard, High Line this season. Here are some of the highlights!
Assembly's Blue Period
LES-based design crew Assembly showed soft powdery blues and drapey linens. The phrase "effortless chic" gets tossed around a lot these days, but if the asymmetrical blouse fits ...?
Erin Featherston’s Golden Hour
Milk’s review put it best: “All the codes of the Fetherston woman (and girl) were present, the endless femininity, the high waists, the wispy strapless dresses, demure plays on the décolletage with the spirit of nonchalant young-lady-ness or flowing, womanly elegance pervading everything.”
Houghton, Blowing in the Wind
Out on The Standard’s High Line Terrace, Houghton unveiled a vibrant, lacey, print-filled collection. The garden-party-in-a-tempest setting made for a dramatic and beautiful show.
High Tops and Higher Heels
Footwear designer Alejandro Ingelmo rainbow high tops and high heels sparkled furiously under the spot lights. Cinder block pedestals and a giant web of black shoe laces set a whimsicle, macabre tone.
Black & Beige at Katie Gallagher
Feminine, soft and layered, Ms. Gallagher’s dresses had an incandescent warmth proving there’s nothing quite as effervescent as a perfect shade of champagne.
The Red Trouser Lives on at Lucio Castro
Miami designer Lucio Castro wins for best inspiration, per his interview with Milk: "[those] neon markings workmen spray around the city to mark out where they’re gonna make new holes.”
Retro Minimalism with Anna Laub’s Prism
Simple, clean and bold sums up the Prism collection shown on the rooftop of Le Bain, which we have to say was a pretty nice spot to show off sunglass and swimwear.
Nomia’s Subtle Progression
Milk’s Review: “Nomia manages to look modern, progressive even while still maintaining wearable silhouettes and featuring easy colorways; ivory, white marble, poppy and black. Their clothes don’t scream for attention instead the clever cuts and great fits affirm an affinity with the contemporary.”
