My little pony makes a splash at this designers installation slightly before NYFW officially kicks.
She made the right decision as NYFW ended up opening during blizzard. The installation had cold finger foods and a gift bag featuring sponsors of the show.
The clothes themselves were themed to My Little Pony, an obsessively detailed cartoon meant to teach kids a set of virtues.
Sequin, sequin and more sequin was a feature of the show in dazzling colors from bright pinks to pastel blues. A hard sale in the normcore US culture but welcomed in fashion nevertheless.
Secondly, the prints that were inspired by My Little Pony were equally interesting. They ranged from Indian Patchwork and rainbows to a more generic lightening in turquoise. I loved pastel camouflage and the turquoise checkerboard that didn’t really fit into the theme but somehow worked.
Lastly, the collection was seasonless, pieces seemed to span summer to fall with little focus on spring or winter. We loved that some pieces could be layered for later.
The men side of the collection seemed not to fit with the women side at all. I did like the pastel stripes and the use of bright hues rarely seen in men fashion but not My Little Pony at all.
Secondly, the collection heavily relayed on prints and sequin and there was few design elements beside ruffle sleeves on dress put all the way in the back.
Lastly, if you are going to make jewelry, please put some effort into it, and if you have no time commission it. I heard that her friend (who happens to be a jewelry designer) created the set for her. Why not commission the pieces from her?
The results is a Claire’s knockoff of glitter velvet ribbon and laser cut plexiglass charms in hard to tell the shape designs, stars, ponies, moons, rainbows and various Lucky Charms cereal shapes. She was better off just sticking to the printed velvet necklaces.
Apparently, the designer worked with several celebrities such as Katy Perry but no celebrity support here. I would like to see more from here in the future.
