Yes, I still have an abundance of f/w ’11 nyfw shows to share! My shooting schedule lately has taken more time away from blogging, but now that things have calmed a bit for the next few days, it’s nice to revisit some photos from the last two months.
Frank Tell’s f/w ’11 show was held in the tents for the first time this year, thanks to a sponsorship from W hotels. The Box, the smallest space in the tents seemed to be packed to the gills with spectators trying to catch a glimpse of the presentation.
Luckily for everyone, it repeated a second time, so I was able to squeeze forward into the photographer’s area and snap some photos.
Frank’s f/w ’10 collection was one of my favorites of the season (and also one of the most visually stunning presentations). But I didn’t care much for s/s ’11. It seemed slightly boring by comparison. Fall marked the return of my favorite Frank, the one that takes risks with edgy, torn garments, leathers, and crazy knits.
The look was post-apocalpytic huntress wear. With Mad Max-ish mohawk hairdos thrown into the mix. Frank admitted to finding inspiration by watching a lot of dark end of the world movies, like Planet of the Apes, prior to creating this collection– something that was very apparent to everyone in the room.
When grouped together, some of the looks might seem extreme, but I found the collection to be enviously wearable, at least for those of us with a darker sense of style.
When the world ends, I know which collection I’ll want to be wearing.
