New York Fashion Week F/W 2014: Kenneth Cole

Sorry for the brief hiatus, darlings. It seems that when you take off a week of school to jet to NYC for NY Fashion Week, you have muoy catching up to do when you return to the real world.

But! Let us continue in the recapping of this February’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week!

Every good NYC PR girl story begins with a steaming cup of coffee… or at least this one does. Birch has not only delicious brew, but a coffeeshop that is so trendy, it rivals Portland! And that’s sayin’ somethin.

On the agenda today was only one show: Kenneth Cole. As the rule-breaker that he is, Kenneth Cole always wants to strike a certain tone with each show, typically with some sort of social media ring to it. This show was no different, begging the question: what can we believe on social media these days?

And let’s be honest with each other here: we don’t even know anymore. With social media silently taking over the world, it’s difficult to know who’s putting a PR spin on their own story, presenting their life in a way that isn’t necessarily true.

Sure, Kenneth Cole’s ultimate goal with this video was to showcase his clothes, but it argues a larger question that is hard to ignore in today’s society: what’s real and what’s for show?

Other than the mind-boggling question, I was digging the hair the models were rockin’.

One of the best parts about Kenneth Cole’s show is that it’s off-site – meaning, it isn’t under the big white tents at Lincoln Center. But it gives each show of his its own character! This last set up was my personal favorite – the models weaved through each row of seating, giving everyone in attendance prime views of each look.

There were, of course, a few VIPs in attendance – including a few of my favorites (and The City alums!) Roberta Meyers and Joe Zee! They perch on the end of their bench just below, in the front row, facing the runway.

Killer shoes, Robbie.

And then, who can disregard Jon Bon Jovi and Michael Strahan? I definitely can’t.

What do you think of Kenneth Cole’s show?

Do you put your own PR spin on your social media life?
