Having that, as well as vocal expression, is what gives me my confidence,” said Grant.

Spring Style of Vivienne Hu

The Vivienne Hu Spring/Summer 2021 collection perfectly captures all the best parts of spring fashion, while staying both classic and modern. The line consists of 50 pieces that channel both comfort and elegance. With clear influence from European design and New York business clothing, the line had a lot of femininity and beauty. 

The collection features pastel colors to go along with the true nature of classic spring shades. With hues of light blue, pink and green, the colors perfectly resemble blooming flowers and the escape of a bleak winter. The pastels were subtle enough not to scream Easter, but are still the perfect colors for escaping a chilly winter. A few black pieces stood out in the collection in contrast to the generally light colors of the line. Although different then the other light and muted tones, black does not channel the energy of spring. However, black is a classic color and is always in style, no matter the season. 

The Spring/Summer 2021 designs are all about details with fewer bold pieces focused on the fit of the clothes more than any flashy patterns. The outfits were made from light fabrics that flowed perfectly with the movements of the models. Satin and silk were used to keep the garments classic and allowed them to shimmer in the light. The dresses and pants were fluid and created movement as the models strutted down the runway. 

Recently, midi skirts have taken over the fashion world. Thinking back to the 2010s, maxi skirts had the spotlight for a few years and short skirts have always been circulating the fashion world. However, skirts that meet in the middle are now everywhere. Midi skirts are perfect for spring because they keep your legs shielded on chilly days, but stay light and airy for the warm temperatures. The long skirts were often paired with a deep neckline to channel just the right amount of modesty. 

Many of the shirts included puffy and long sleeves. Sometimes known as balloon sleeves, this victorian technique was very popular in this year’s fall and winter collections, so it is no surprise they will continue to be popular this spring. This type of sleeve can add a chic demeanor to even a basic outfit. 

The line seems to pull inspiration from lingerie with silk and lace, but channels a level of professionalism that is ready to wear. The line includes many high necks with collars and a trendier version of a blazer. There is a clear inspiration taken from classic business fashion, but many of the looks have cut-outs or sheer pieces that make the outfits feel sexy. 

The accessories were bold and stood out against the simple closet pieces. Statement earrings made out of beautiful beading drew attention upward and stood out against the more basic shirts. Bright, patterned scarves either tied in the model’s hair or around their necks added a pop of color and tied everything together. These accessories contrasted the simple clothing and made a statement in the look. 

What’s a fashion-forward look without incorporating a statement bag or striking shoes. One of the looks was featured with a black, abstract shoulder bag. Although not the same, this bag closely resembles the Christian Dior Oblique Saddle Bag that has been increasingly popular on social media. The unique shape makes it a must-have especially with the popularity of shoulder bags. These mini purses have been one of the most popular types of stylish bags this year. Although shoes are rarely the showcase, the shoes in this line beautifully accentuate the colors of the clothing. Many of the shoes were functional flats or small heels with a bit of color from the outfit. Ruffles were also featured on many of the shoe straps, which is surprising because ruffles were minimal in the clothing pieces. 

This line is significantly different from both the 2020 Spring/Summer collection as well as the 2019 Spring/Summer collection. In the 2019 line, the focus was on patterns and many of the clothes were bolder. Many geometric patterns were featured and the colors were much deeper. The 2020 line also contained deeper colors and included many silver and black pieces. Outerwear and heavy fabrics were much more present in the 2020 collection compared to the upcoming 2021 designs. 

Hu has always been focused on making outfits both professional and stylish, which is hard to find in the world of business clothing. She originally received a degree in finance and worked in investment banking for over three years. She wanted a more creative career path and worked for a degree in fashion from Parsons School of Design. Her first collection was a spring/summer line in 2012 and she opened her first store in 2013. 

“In the corporate world I see women lose their personal style for the sake of professionalism…forced to follow dress code and as a result being ‘uniform’,” said Hu on her website. “Women should never be forced to give up something so personal …My vision is to break open this forced box by bridging the gap between personality and professionalism.”

Vivienne Hu continues to show the professional world that work attire can be fashionable. Her Spring 2021 collection perfectly captures sophistication while staying graceful and sleek. The pieces in this line were functional enough to wear while still showing the designs of high fashion. The exquisite details tied each look together and made the line cohesive. This line is one to watch for this spring, especially if timeless pieces and business wear are a part of your wardrobe. Keep up with Vivienne Hu fashion on their website or Instagram

N.Peal Launches 007 Collection During NYFW

N.PEAL LAUNCHES WOMENS 007 CASHMERE COLLECTION DESIGNED IN CONJUNCTION WITH EON PRODUCTIONS, MAKERS OF THE JAMES BOND FILMS. N.PEAL DELVED INTO THE BOND ARCHIVES TO SELECT A SERIES OF ICONIC LOOKS FROM ACROSS THE PAST 50 YEARS AND REIMAGINED THEM FOR TODAY.

Exclusive cashmere knitwear brand N.Peal is delighted to announce the launch of the first ever 007 women’s cashmere collection presented exclusively on NYFW.COM

James Bond films have always placed women at the heart of the action. From the very outset, allies such as Honey Ryder (Dr. No) and Pussy Galore (Goldfinger) have proved themselves resilient and skillful.The films have since created numerous female characters that live long in the memory, including Tracy Di Vicenzo (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service), May Day (A View To A Kill) and Jinx (Die Another Day), to name a few.The Bond films have also featured powerful female adversaries whose intellect and inventiveness have tested 007’s mettle.

To celebrate all of these iconic women, N.Peal has delved into the Bond archives to select seven classic looks from across the past 50 years and reimagined them for today. Finding inspiration in the shirt worn by Honey Ryder in Dr No (1962) to a deep V neck sweater worn by Holy Goodhead in Moonraker (1979).

The range is supported by two key pieces N.Peal designed and created in collaboration with No Time To Die Costume Designer, Suttirat Anne Larlarb. A Moorland Brown 100% cashmereT-shirt worn by the character Madeleine Swann and the Unisex Navy Blue ribbed army sweater worn by the character James Bond in the film and in the striking character poster. “The N.Peal team worked with my brief, which consisted of detailed photographs of authentic sweaters and several samples of extant vintage pieces, as well as colour thoughts and technical specs” Larlarb says. “When you are dealing with the number of decisions you have to make on a Bond film, with so many important characters and so many vital items of clothing, having a collaboration like the one we had with N.Peal was a godsend.”

N.Peal previously worked with the filmmakers on Skyfall (2012), providing a Blue Wave Roundneck Sweater for Bond and on Spectre (2015), supplying 007 with a superfine cashmereTurtleneck and a light grey Rollneck.

Super Model Simonetta Lein Opens NYFW Show For Fashion Designer Stevie Boi

Super Model Simonetta Lein Opens NYFW Show For Fashion Designer Stevie Boi

1) From your viewpoint what was it like walking for famous designer Stevie Boi?

“It was like being home. Many people reach out to me and they are always very surprised when I talk to them with no problem. They think that because I have been named as one of the top 5 in the world I should be unapproachable. I firmly believe that the more you grow the more you should stay humble, and thank every blessing you receive. Stevie has my same philosophy. He is a very talented man who put together a professional yet kind team. That to me is synonymous of real success.”

2) How was the event different from anything you’ve ever done?

“I had many stylists dedicated to me and what I loved is that they were constantly asking me if I felt good in my outfit or I needed to change something. I truly felt that it was Stevie’s special touch and heart. Also it was the first time I got to open a NYFW show. That special feeling of butterflies in my stomach was different, as I felt responsible for the good start of the show. It was a good feeling and also tested me, I feel even stronger now.

3) What kind of vibe did the event hold?

It was an urban grunge type of vibe. My makeup and hair were different from anything else I have ever done and as a model that made me happy, as I could experiment with something different. It was artistic yet contemporary, which I appreciated.

4) As an influencer and trendsetter what did you think of his collection?

I think it was futuristic yet sellable, which is something very important for an artist and a designer. His silver touch and plastic inserts made it very particular and bold, and mixed with fashion staples as jackets, mini skirts, jeans, created an ensemble of clothes that urban people can wear to be seen yet be comfortable and edgy. I also appreciated him being inclusive with a mom with a baby, different sizes shapes and colors of models which represents the world of today.

5) What was your take on New York fashion week this year?

Knits are the new normal. Volume and movement. Plaid is back, as we have seen in my outfit. Everyone is going sustainable. I have been advocating for that for a while now and it is so great to see it happening on the runways.

6) What was your opinion of the outfit you walked in?

I would definitely wear it for an event or a day of work in the city. Perfect to be elegant but different. A retro style with plaid pattern with irregular fringes, a mini skirt and a top that made me feel so cute and feminine.

7) What was the highlight of the event from your point of view?

The show itself was really well done, and that is the major highlight. I think sometimes in fashion we look for too many external components and we forget the basics. A well organized performance leaves the public and buyers happy. He also had performers and a very cool graphic. When I got into my moment and walked for him and I saw the entire room surrounded by waves moving on the wall I thought: this is nothing but the great Stevie Boi.

Fashionable Art

By Armon Hayes × Vaughn Lowery

A decade ago, a collection of 35mm slides from the 80s and 90s capturing New York fashion would be rediscovered by set designer Gaetane Bertol. With relentless research, she understood the value of the contents to be a treasure to share with the world. In 2008, the untimely fire of fashion journalist Yuriko Tomita’s NYC apartment, birthed an opportunity for Tzili Charney. She decided to curate a photographic exhibition alongside of fashion historian Ya’ara Keydar.  

Before the launch of NYFW, 360 Magazine visited ZAZ10z for a preview of the exhibition. The installation is presented in the foyer of the iconic building which once served as home to some of the most prestigious designers in America (Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs). The exhibition is free and open to the public from September 5, 2019 until January 20, 2020. It showcases runway images of the youthful fashionistas and supermodels of the era: Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell. Enjoy the interactive art in real-time as you impart on design history and culture.
