Word Play

September 9, 2009

 

New York Fashion Week starts tomorrow!

 

In the weeks leading up to Fashion Week The Cut asked designers to sum up their spring collections with just one word. I’m sure it’s a difficult task for a designer with lofty visions and a myriad of inspirations to sum up the breadth of their brilliant creations with a single word. Not surprisingly the designers gave some interesting answers.

 

Some were straightforward (boring?):

“Structure”
Narciso Rodriguez

 

Some inspired:

“Singed”
Rodarte

“Sojourn”
Yigal Azrouel

 

Others poetic:

“Fragility”
L’Wren Scott

 

Several were curious:

“Edgy”
Vera Wang

“Techno”
Nicole Miller

Two wedding party perennials attempting “edgy” and “techno” (whatever that means)? These I gotta see.

 

A few were ambiguous:

“Explorative”
Erin Wasson

“Evocative”
Jason Wu

Exploring where? Evoking what?
 

 

One was silly:

“Splendiferous”
Anna Sui

 

And my favorite was unique and made me laugh out loud:

“Perv”
Alexander Wang
 

See the full list of responses at The Cut.
