In celebration of this upcoming S/S 2017 NYFW, I decided to cover a show that I attended but was unable to properly report due to time constraints. Thaddeus O’Neil’s SS16 presentation was deemed a “Disco Sea Party”, adorned with imported palm trees, beach supplies, sand and tropical beverages. The clothing reflected the theme with an assortment of vacation worthy attire. Here we go!
Accessories and Styling: As stated previously, the collection concentrated on keeping a lax, surfer-like ambiance. The models were styled with sun hats, beach accessories and even light weight instruments. For the female and androgynous models, the makeup included a copper and golden smokey eye, bronzed skin and peach blush. Their hair was put into beach waves – cementing their status as beach royalty.
Clothing: The clothing including a set of island-inspired prints, from palm tree shorts to pineapple blouses, patterned bikini tops and neoprene ensembles. Most of the fabric choices were lightweight and breathy – a perfect choice for a day on the beach. My favorite outfit was the printed empire waist mini dress that the last model wore. I love the drama that the conflicting patterns bring to the look!
