country ‘grammers – at nyfw

Boiled wool coats…several different types of plaid…Carhartt-esque work trousers…duck boots…pants informally cinched with rope and worn leather belts – they may have been carrying high-tech devices, but there was something decidedly rustic and anachronistic in the air (both on the runway and off) at the Creatures of Comfort show in New York on Thursday 2.6.14. Perhaps the stunning setting for the show influenced the showgoers to dress accordingly? The circa-1899 refectory at The High Line Hotel looks like nothing so much as the dining hall of an enormous country manor. I’m sure that the snowy weather we’ve had recently in New York influenced everyone’s wardrobe decisions as well. Still, this wasn’t the usual vintage-inspired rustic look that I’m accustomed to seeing on the streets of Brooklyn – this was something different. After the show, I even spotted one girl wearing what could only be described as a prairie dress (with boots to match) – bringing a bit of the countryside to the city while remaining demurely feminine. x
