New York Fashion Week is still in full swing and for part three of our ongoing coverage photographer Mark Elzey takes us behind the scenes at some of the event’s most anticipated shows: Pyer Moss and Deveaux.
The Kerby Jean-Raymond-helmed Pyer Moss did not disappoint with Collection 3. Showing at Flatbush’s Kings Theatre and set to an impressive live soundtrack by The Pyer Moss Tabernacle Drip Choir Drenched in The Blood, the show was as grandiose as you’d expect from the designer — and, of course, the clothes followed suit. Featuring familiar faces like Schön! 33 alum Caleb McLaughlin, models strutted down the runway clad in an array of pieces — from puffa jackets to flowy shirts to sparkling bodysuits. Colour and texture were key in Pyer Moss‘s latest offering, which shined bright both on the runway and behind the scenes as did Jean-Raymond’s message and legacy.
Tommy Ton’s Deveaux also opted for a live music performance this season — favouring Janet Jackson’s “Love Will Never Do.” For his second collection behind the brand, the street style photographer turned creative director pulled out all the stops. Featuring perhaps NYFW most diverse group of models, the catwalk was the epitome of Deveaux’s now trademark effortless style. The subdued colour palette — made up almost entirely of nudes, navies, and monochromes — fitted perfectly across the collection’s pieces — from suits to dresses, which was rounded off with a gender-less touch.
