Jonathan Simkhai presented his Spring 2018 Collection on Saturday at Skylight Clarkson Square in New York City, as part of NYFW.
Pastels, light breezy chambrays, lacework cascading through delicious black, cream and navy dresses – yup, that is still my fave color. Rose jumpsuits, pinstripes and black strappy dresses, and a one sleeved ruffly top that I have actually dreamt about for the past two nights, it is just that perfect.
The Collection had a strong softness, a romantic element (the models hair and makeup was magical) that celebrated the strength of femininity. Ruffles, diagonal cut skirts, lace and denim all combined for a show not to be missed.
Simkhai also collaborated with Reebok and brought back the Hi Top, originally sported by none other that Jane Fonda in her workout videos!
This time round the Reebok Hi Tops are catering to the Simkhai collection. Lace, soft blue and rose colored complimenting the distressed denim and various other bananas-good pieces Simkhai sent down the runway.
* Full disclosure, the runway was actually a square but the gorgeous clothes were still sent “down”. *
When I started reversecommuter I had two personal goals. One was to go to NYFW. Jonathan Simkhai has invited me three times (so far) and it means the world to me. Undeniably I am a mad fan for his clothing, but what is truly incredible is the person he is, he is THE example of the getting what you deserve.
But wait, there’s more. After the show, Jonathan Simkhai had an after party, held at Made Hotel. An incredibly, appropriately gorgeous crowd complete with crazy beautiful djs, custom cocktails and a phenomenally powerful happy vibe.
