ELLE Extra: Everything Our Editors Saw at NYFW

It’s that time of year again. Although it doesn’t feel like it outside (where we are, at least), winter is here, and with that, so is New York Fashion Week. We’re embracing the not-so-cold temperatures and gearing up for a week of capital-F Fashion, celebrity sightings, unmissable events, and all the moments in between that give the city its electric charge. We’ve rounded up the best of what we saw each day, so check this space as we continue to highlight all the happenings you probably didn’t see on Instagram.

I started my day at Kate Spade, where I saw Haley Lu Richardson go barefoot at the Whitney, far from the beach at The White Lotus. A total Portia move.—Claire Stern, digital deputy editor

kitchenmaid marta del rio


KitchenAid at fashion week? Like…the kitchen mixer brand? You heard me. The iconic household name paired with designers to create an imaginative collection inspired by kitchen appliances. I can’t stop thinking about this fuchsia number from Marta Del Rio. —Meg Donohue, associate fashion commerce editor

I have to stay very tight lipped about what Simon Miller has in store for fall….but you should be excited. Be very excited.Meg Donohue, associate fashion commerce editor

Sandy Liang always brings the coolest guests to her front row—including none other than the artist Japanese Breakfast. As a fan of her music and her book, I simply had to snap a photo when I could! —Dale Arden Chong, senior fashion commerce editor

Last night, Sam Finger presented his debut collection at the Mutt Museum in Williamsburg. The one-of-a-kind pieces were all made using upcycled, deadstock, or ethically sourced fabric, and the collection included casual “non-denim denim” co-ords to the skirt above, made from eight pairs of vintage Levi 501s. When you can see both yourself and Julia Fox wearing pieces from the same collection, that’s what we in the business call range. —Kevin LeBlanc, fashion associate
