ICY Presents: Dynasty Spring Summer 2020 during New York Fashion Week
Fashion Week Spring Summer 2020 kicked off with a fashion show that started before the official start of fashion week. There were four designers presenting; Huiman, Leaf Xia, Fengyi Tan, and All Comes From Nothing. The show had something for everyone and was an excellent way to get a jump start on the season. Held at Spring Studios, and being the first show of the season, the crowd was full of energy and anticipation. The room glowed with red and blue, and the runway itself was buffed to perfection to a reflective shiny black finish. And as the lights went down and the music turned up, we could not help but enjoy the atmosphere and buzz around us.
Hiuman was the first brand to show on the runway and was an exciting mix of filmy textiles, black and white plaids, sheer whites, and the occasional pastel. One model wore a crocheted like tassel dress over traditional checked trousers and a sheer long-sleeved blouse. Another look was a white rope tassel bound over a simple black sleeveless dress. This tassel could also be found on a white jumpsuit top and suggests an air of confinement among the more free-flowing pieces, such as unstructured trenches with geometric patterned linings and sheer asymmetrical tanks in black plaid. There were also more traditional pants suits in seafoam green and pinstriped pants for men.
Next up was Leaf Xia. Known for colorful expressions and playful interactions of youthful apparel that speaks to your inner rebellious seven-year-old self, this collection had all the pomp and circumstance one would expect from the brand. Leaf Xia takes pattern mixing to the next level, and this was prominent throughout the lineup. Florals were the most abundant print and came in all shapes and sizes from vibrant reds, turquoise, orange, and purple, which were all juxtaposed together or scattered on black. Asymmetry reigned with unstructured boundaries between garments, with silhouettes being overtly feminine though decidedly non-body-con. Along with florals, ruffles, tulle, and neon pulled the collection together while touches of two-toned Christmas plaid and a Mad Men era gold brocade added a seventies vibe, which was also communicated with a psychedelic petal flower pearl necklace. We also saw red hot sock boots, pearl-encrusted sandals, sequined pumps, neon sneakers, flowered headbands, clear wrap-around sunnies in vibrant pops of orange and yellow, and gold butterfly earrings. These elements created a brilliant collection that celebrates the rebel in all of us.
Following Leaf Xia was Fengyi Tan. The brand is inspired by dancewear and choreography. This dance element is reflected in the fluid yet equally structured pieces that interplay in a delicate balancing act of form and function. The collection that walked the runway was a striking embodiment of this aesthetic and at once, surprised and enlightened. Pastels, white and a jewel-toned blue anchored the collection, while an oversized checked pattern and geometric print added depth and intrigue. More approachable relaxed pants suits and layered knitwear in pastel greens and purples stood in contrast to the more dramatic theatrical maxi dresses with their hexagonal checked print and long gloves. A long body-con dress adorned with an image of an ancient head sculpture kept things in a more sporty vibe, as did the A-line royal blue skirt where the sculpture image made another appearance. A stand-alone dress in lavender with a crosshatch top and a wrap skirt featured another of those seventies-era flower-power blooms seen at Leaf Xia. But the footwear truly stood out with it’s unique, simple, square bottomed soles.
The last designer to show was All Comes From Nothing. The most approachable of the designers, the collection felt like two collections in one, with sporty leisure wear firmly rooted in the contemporary, fashion-forward world, and another aesthetic with a softer, more earthy vibe. The sporty leisure wear will top the other, as this is the brand’s strength. Pieces that stood out were the boiler suit inspired jumpsuits with floral detailing and the athletic streetwear-inspired boots with their zippered fronts, pointed toes, stacked platform bottoms, and exquisite prints. The cropped pull-overs with black lettering are a fun, easy go-to, and the A-Line embroidered sheath dress and high-waisted double-breasted shorts are contemporary must-haves. The palettes were also a bit fractured with the black, gold, pale pink, and white being quite on-trend, while the forest green, sunflower yellow, and beige added a unique touch. Overall the collection was wearable with some fun, trendy pieces, and I am eager to see where the brand goes with its focus and which aesthetic will win out.

Tatras Joins Riot Hill for Fall Winter 2020
written by Youness Boumia
“So Far so good” These are the words we could hear, as an introduction for this special collaboration between TATRAS, known for its high-quality winter sportswear and RIOT HILL, a Streetwear brand founded by Jordan FRESHER and well appreciated by the famous singer The Weeknd. A plus, the support of Bella HADID coming to the show, holding a glass of champagne, in a total look from the collection: a khaki multi-pocket pants with a layering of a black turtleneck and utilitarian jacket.
How to describe the collection in three words? Violent, anonymous, and order. After been a few minutes in the dark with light flashed, silhouettes appear with hematomas and scars faces (obviously it is makeup), with aesthetic references from military and utility clothing. Technical fabrics as nylon make bombers and coats, embellished with steel details as zippers, push-buttons, multi-pocket pants. We then move more into a defensive style reinforced, but the heavy ranger boots the oversized shapes, giving strength to the looks, like the “blanket like” puffer jacket. Get ready for the harsh winter!

Emerging Designers From The Platform FLYING SOLO Show Their New Fall Winter 2020 Collections During NYFW
Flying Solo is the largest independent designer platform in the US, formed by independent designers from all around the world. It is owned and operated by the designers themselves, and the objective is to transform fashion culture through revolutionary retail experience and a personal collection. Flying Solo provides them with both opportunities to sell their collections directly to the costumers (online and in their retail store in NYC) and to present them during NYFW in a show they call Flying Solo Couture.
Last February, a long list of designers presented their FW20 collections. Overall, the show was very eclectic. Each designer has a very different style from the other, which brings more richness to the presentation. The collections went from a very sporty and fashion-forward style to those that opted for more formal clothes and classic shapes.
There were many significant collections, but some of the designers caught the audience’s attention more than others, leaving a lasting impression. MONOSUIT was one of them. The Russian brand designed by Masha Agapkina presented a collection that combined the signature oversized modern athleisure looks in a neon palette, with more classical styles in black, grey, and white colors, but without losing the sporty vibe. Fur hats, ranging in colors from hot pink to neon turquoise, were also memorable. Di Vicenzo was one of the other highlighted designers. He presented a different collection from Monosuit, which was elegant, glamorous, and luxurious, showing the contrast between designers and their styles. The designs were body-accentuating dresses and separates, made using modern technology and innovative yarns to create perfectly fitted garments that would shape the wearer’s figure with its signature knitted look. With a very neutral color palette including black, white, nude, navy, and maroon, fringes were the star element that adorned the dresses, some of which also included shiny details.

Cynthia Rowley Gets Inspired By Dr. Seuss For Her Spring Summer 2020 Collection
Cynthia Rowley began her career in fashion while studying at the Art Institute of Chicago. After graduation, she took what little seed money she had and moved to NYC to start her eponymous fashion brand. The designer is known to take risks. This unparalleled sense of adventure that effortlessly translates into the spirit of the brand through a playful assortment of pretty dresses, beachy separates, and swim/surf. Cynthia Rowley has gone on to win numerous accolades, including a CFDA Award and Designer of the Year at the American Image Awards.
Cynthia Rowley, the brand, is built on the philosophy that fashion should be an adventure. The brand’s signature pretty-meets-sporty assortment features ready-to-wear, surf and swim, fitness, accessories, and home decor. Sustainability plays an essential role in the brand’s production process – limited quantities are produced in every piece to avoid excess inventory.
Deemed the pioneer of “surf-leisure” by Vogue, the brand’s signature wetsuits and neoprene swimwear are produced using recycled materials and green technology for a gentler and more sustainable environmental impact. Cynthia Rowley’s mission is rooted in women’s empowerment. The brand exudes a spontaneous spirit, and actively redefines fashion’s boundaries, inspiring women everywhere to take risks and live life fearlessly.
For her SS20 collection, designer Cynthia Rowley turned Tribeca’s tucked-away Jay Street into an animated, happy playland inspired by Dr. Seuss’ “Oh, the Places You’ll Go.”
Rowley’s runway was printed with images from the book, and a few dresses toward the end of the show included mash-ups of Dr. Seuss’s fine art. But instead of just co-opting his designs, the designer worked in whimsical elements to her feminine fest. Scalloped details, striped raffia hats, and cloud eye makeup all transmitted the same spirit. Aside from floral frocks, Rowley presented strong separates, like trousers with two different colored legs, a column day dress that was half-white, half-beige, and pieces with graphic patchworked color blocks.
Models with boxy luggage or in a standout floral wetsuit, surfboard in hand, closed the show, ready for their next destinations.
