She was on social media roaming the streets of NYC in a $14,000 heart shaped Saint Laurent Fall 2016 coat and her made her way to Bergdorf Goodman to launch her Fenty x Puma line, so the question on everyone’s mind leading up to the Adam Selman show was will Rihanna be there? The unfortunate answer for that is no. However, that didn’t stop the masses from coming out, some wearing Selman’s Last Lolitas Le Specs cat-eye glasses which sold out rather quickly, to see what’s in store for Spring 2017 and of course, a possible Ri Ri sighting.
Fresh off the Runway
Absent from the show in the physical yes but her spirit was ever present. You couldn’t help but ignore the model’s Mac Cosmetic painted faces just to envision every look on Ms. Fenty. The more pro-bad gyal fashions consisted of the oversized denim army jacket, a blue backless striped top and lace-back column skirt and the plethora of pajama tops and bottoms that ranged from sheer and oversized to a marigold and pink lady print. Disco was brought to the daytime courtesy of beaded party dresses, deep v-neck shirts and a mini skirt which was styled perfectly with a long sleeve graphic tee while canvas moto jackets and denim pants gave off biker vibes.
And The Winner Is
All in all, it was a good showing from Adam Selman. The cohesiveness of this Spring line showed just how talented of a designer that Selman is. The knits cardigans —shown in both white and multi-colored— polo shirts and skirts looked like they belonged in a collection with the nipple bearing sheer overall dress or the denim striped tulle and grosgrain evening number the closed out the show. With the ability to design a collection as strong as this one this CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund finalists may want to rehearse his acceptance speech.
