I had the pleasure of attending the Cynthia Rowley Spring 2015 NYFW presentation as a guest of Birchbox, the exclusive backstage sponsor. The show took place on Tuesday, 09/09/14 at the Swiss Institute in Soho. Incidentally this was also the space that hosted the Chanel Little Black Jacket Exhibition. Cynthia Rowley's design aesthetic has consistently been fresh, feminine and whimsical and this collection was no exception with the addition of a modernized 60's/70's vibe. The models were presented atop pedestals in splashy graphic pastel prints and large scale cutout appliqués and floral lace on swingy trapeze dresses and tunic and flared pants sets. The presentation dubbed #CRlandia also included the designer's activewear line which featured a selection of modern athletic wear that juxtaposed sporty function with pretty details like metallic gold flowers and lettering to scallops on a pair of running shorts. See the entire look book.
Thanks to Birchbox, I also had access to the backstage beauty. Meet me back here on Monday to get the details on the makeup and hair! I totally forgot to snap a pic of my outfit but it did include these Pumas and my Frankenstein ankle brace. Sadly I've started wearing it again but that's a story for another day.
My favorites were the black floral lace top with the racing stripe flares and the periwinkle blue coat. What do you think of this collection? Any of the looks catch your eye?
