2013 Fall New York Fashion Week: 4 Things We Learned on Day 2
The Hook's editor Gregory DelliCarpini Jr. was out on the town in NYC yesterday (Feb. 8), scoping out the latest NYFW fall runway looks and taking celeb notes along the way.
Gabe Saporta & Marky Ramone are Tommy Boys
Cobra Starship frontman Gabe Saporta, known for his sleek style on the New York scene sat front row at the Tommy show. Saporta looked dapper in a white shirt and tie combo and a black and grey plaid printed, fur trimmed over coat. Joining him front row was Ramones drummer Marky Ramone, who was looking less put together and more rocker chic in an all black ensemble.
Rebecca Minkoff’s into Wild Cub
Rebecca Minkoff has an knack for snatching up cool bands to add flavor to her runway soundtrack. Theophilus London (who looked on from the front row), GOASTT, and Tennis all have performed on her runway in the past. This season the designer enlisted the musical talent of Nashville duo Wild Cub.
"A girl in my office introduced me to them,” she explained after the show. “She played ‘Thunder Clatter’ for me and I knew they were perfect for the show. I then saw their music video for ‘Colours’ and I just knew they would be a band that the ‘Rebecca Minkoff girl’ would go see! They truly exceeded all my expectations.”
The unrefined texture of their sound perfectly echoed the sophisticated grunge look of the collection. Minkoff’s fall vision was filled with leather-trimmed coats, a plaid jumper, darling dresses, and a fierce baseball jacket in leather.
Joining Theophilus London front row was Ashlee Simpson who rocked a black and white graphic-printed skirt and asymmetrical bob.
Alison Mosshart loves Rag & Bone
Black quilted leather pants, grey oversized herringbone sweaters and rubberized tweed jackets marched down the runway past Alison Mosshart, Anna Wintour and Drew Barrymore at the Rag & Bone fall 2013 runway show. Mosshart rocked a casual and cool urban look – blue trousers, a striped shirt, a black leather biker jacket topped off with a fedora over her blonder and amber colored hair.
Ashlee Simpson and Eve were Girly Chic at Nicole Miller
Eve and Ashlee Simpson wore similar flirty dresses sitting next to each other at the Nicole Miller runway show. Eve opted for a black and white stripped dress with black stockings while Ashlee went a bit more fem in a black floral printed dress, grey knit hat, and also paired her look with black stockings. Simpson added some edge to her proper look in the form of a black leather bicker jacket.
