Jump-starting the fashion week festivities, tonight’s opening featured the photography of the venerable Paul Rowland (founder of Supreme and Women agencies). As such, the gallery was swarming with models, and nearly overwhelming with stimulating visuals.
I only had the chance to take a few awful photos with my Blackberry.
++EDIT 2/14: I added new photos (see more at Supreme Being).
Hanne Gaby Odiele with the androgyne Iris Strubegger.
Daiane Conterato, Kasia Struss, Hanne again, and Toni Garrn.
And Cecilia Mendez- what happened?? She used to be one of my favorites…
When I spotted a girl wearing this all Phi (sadly, an immensely underrated label) fall ’08 outfit, I just had to take a shot of it.
Amid a sea of models and industry movers and shakers wearing the most coveted Rick Owens, Alexander Wang, Margiela, Chanel, etc. pieces of the season, this girl’s outfit stood out for its daring mixture of proportion, shape and texture.
She is wearing Acne silk harem-esque trousers, an Acne sheer dust-grey blouse with raw edges, a gorgeous softly draped suede motorcycle jacket also by Acne, and black suede cut-out Opening Ceremony wedges.
