THE AGNES IN BLACK CALF
We're thrilled many of our favorite bloggers have shown an interest in wearing the Agnes to NYFW, so we thought we'd theme our latest ANYI'S PICKS around what to wear to the biggest fashion event of the year.
If you're going to Fashion Week, you likely work in fashion or have a serious interest in the business, so the act of just getting dressed for it shouldn't be that complicated. But the amount of pressure to look the part can make even the most seasoned fashionista a little apprehensive.
The styling we've put together is classic but with some edge. It is for the woman who is there to see the shows over being seen. She is running from one to the next and is there for work, not leisure, though will definitely have plenty of fun.
People come from all over the world to be in the Big Apple for NYFW, but unless they've actually spent time in New York in February they may not realize just how bitter cold the winter wind tunneling through the skyscrapers can be. So no matter what you decide to wear, dress warmly. We chose a wool shawl collar coat from Harris Wharf London that takes a modern approach to traditional tailoring with clean-lined cuts and raw edges.
The fun part of a fairly conservative Fashion Week look is picking out a statement piece, in this case a blue metallic leather pouch. The blacks and neutrals provide the perfect backdrop for such a color and texture contrast. And don't forget work accessories like finding a well-designed notebook.
Lastly, getting from one end of the city to the other to catch back to back shows can be a challenge. Wearing a timepiece will help get you there on time, and be more stylish than looking at your phone. And the distances will make you rethink your footwear. The Agnes will support you in a full sprint if necessary while hitting the perfect note of fashion and function.
