Simkhai & The Beach!

NYFW is in full swing and reversecommuter is at the beach.  Literally.

The timing of fashion week always baffles me.   The middle of the coldest winter month, which also coencided with my children’s school break.  How is this blogger supposed to sneak away to New York during THAT week?

  
Happily Vogue, Tim Blanks, Instagram and the Internet are all willing to work on my behalf (lol) and keep me posted while I focus on swim, sun, surf and all things beachy!
  
Jonathan Simkhai presented his Fall 2016 Collection yesterday and dare I say it was one of THE best presentations!  

  
Jonathan has created a niche using geometric cuts and lace in his deliciously designed dresses and knits.  Fall 2016 continued this but in a more wearable way.  His dresses were less crop top more hot wives who lunch.  Wearable but with a major statement of style and strength.  

  
Movement was everywhere in this collection, with fringe, tassels and unfinished ends that seemingly danced down the runway.

  
Furs, neutrals, knits, navy (don’t think I am not ABSOLUTELY buying this complete look!!!) and suiting cut to perfection. 

  

Bustiers and slip dresses complemented with luxurious furs delivered fantasy level date night outfits.  His romantic sensibility met body conscious sex appeal in every piece, by adhering to the age old adage of keeping somethings left to the imagination.

  

Hat Head Luxe

All hail the fur pompom.

  
Seriously THE accessory for Winter 2016.

Prices range from $10 for a street vendor version (perhaps the pompom is synthetic squirrel, perhaps not…),

To mid-range versions offered by Milner extraordinare,  Eugenia Kim.

 
Up to stratosphere versions topped with fox from Loro Piana.

  

Whichever pompom tickles your fancy, know that moms everywhere are rejoicing about all the hats being worn!
