The New York City Beanie

Something obvious happened at New York Fashion Week: every Tom, Dick and Harry did the oversized beanie thing. Perhaps we’re all having a string of bad hair days?

For starters the installation featured thirty models positioned on brick place-holders wedged in sand, holding LED lights. Perhaps the whole thing was a touch urban-nomad-meets-Laurence-of-Arabia. But really it was all about texture (we’re talking goat fur (!) and gauze), skilled bias-cuts, pleats, drop-crotches and draped everything. …
