After a miraculously quick Amsterdam > New York flight, Anna and I got ready for some backstage snapping at Jen Kuo and of course to view the show. It’s super fun to see how the atmosphere backstage was very relaxed, in contradistinction to what Amsterdam Fashion Week feels like most of the time. Everybody’s super friendly and helpful and no-one’s freaking out. Maybe it’s just at this show, maybe it’s the same at all the shows. We’ll just have to wait and see.
The collection tells a story of the night’s leave-behinds (‘a gentle man’s overcoat, a simple man’s trench, the newsboy’s lucky pants), a concept that is merely simple, but very effective in my opinion. I’m all about replenishing my wardrobe with menswear inspired pieces this (and maybe next) season, and despite the fact that I didn’t like the complete collection, Jen Kao grabbed my attention with her embellished jacket and the black and blue mink vest.
