As New York Fashion Week 2016 wraps up, it’s safe to say that it’s been one hell of a show.
From Kanye shuttling his audience out to Roosevelt Island’s Smallpox hospital for Yeezy Season 4 to super models tagging (as in spray painting) brand new Lexus cars at #WangFest, it’s been a week of non-stop absurdness in true New York fashion. While we’ve been closely monitoring Twitter and Instagram to see all of the latest collections, celebrity sitings, and after-party shenanigans, we’ve kept an even closer eye on one of our most favorite things of all: specialty print pieces.
See all of the pieces from New York Fashion Week that caught our attention off the runway, below.
DKNY’s invitation surprised all of its guests as it featured the brand’s new logo. According to their creative directors, “they chose Franklin Gothic for the reimagined logo because it is both bold and American. Rectangular blocks lie on each side, paying homage to the brand’s New York City roots.” The invite itself is die-cut, threaded with a black ribbon.
Kanye’s Yeezy Season 4 invitation feature is clean, minimal, and fresh looking, alluding to the collection that strutted and stood down and around the runway. We were big fans of this one.
Jason Wu’s invitation suite has a polished, elegant feel to it that perfectly compliments the intimate presentation of his Spring/Summer 2017 collection. Similar to past years, the invitation was paired with a signed and numbered Jason Wu sketch. Both the invitation and seat cards from the fashion show are topped off with touches of calligraphy.
As is tradition, Alexander Wang brought his A-game to #WangFest. His fashion week survival kit promo items featured custom shot glasses and debossed moleskin notebooks. From the show to the after party, some of our favorite pieces we saw were the custom 7/11 slurpee cups and Bud Light brown bangs. And a PS to Wang: if you’ve got any extras laying around, we’d be more than happy to take them off your hands.
