Happy 100th Anniversary to @BrooksHeritage

Written by , Posted in New York

There was a very special party at Ace Hotel for an iconic running and fashion brand… Brooks!  Extremely iconic for us 80’s babies – Brooks unveils its heritage footwear collection in celebration of the brand’s 100th Anniversary.  The entire Liberty Hall was decked out in theme with amazing snacks, Vanguard and Vantage inspired cocktails and a really cool surprise.

The Vanguard (with the Octopi outsole) and the Vantage shoe were displayed in various color ways on floating displays or clear acrylic. Fashion bloggers were able to take pictures and check out the shoes from every angle without touching the displays. The bar, in front of a wall of colorful laces, offered beers and cocktails for us thirsty bloggers all night long.

The Vanguard is so 70’s! It has clean design lines, rich aesthetics, classic iconic T-toe. It features a pigskin upper, pebbled Chevron and heel tab for opulence.  Can’t wait to wear my Vanguards this spring!

Created in the union of components to formulate one-of-a-kind fabrics and innovative textures, X-rayexudes architectural lines and sheer, comfortable volumes, together with pieces that hug more closely to the body. Graphics inspired by the seabed, the cosmos and the constellations are also prominent on the lighter pieces and can be found on mirror-like fabrics and silk and nylon transparencies.

Netting and tulle in bright colors also prevail as key fabrics in the collection, in coordination with metallic film prints, Lurex, elastic bands in various shades and geometric lace. Natural-fiber jacquards in fluorescent colors further form the basis of this new graphic collection by Custo.

Custo Barcelona offered a bright and varied palette in both the women’s and men’s collections, featuring everything from pastel colors and whites to the most acid of greens, streaked with daring strokes of black. All in all, it represented an avant-garde fusion of colors to form dresses, tunics, unstructured suits and even a swimwear line.

In accessories, the glasses were handmade from acetate in pastel tones with futuristic touches especially for the catwalk. The bags and watches played on the genuine, colorful geometric design and combined flawlessly with the palette used in the garments, making them the perfect final touch to top off the looks in X-ray.

The runway show was attended bya multitude of spectators, who did not want to miss a single detail of the new Custo Barcelona collection. Seated in the front row were Alexa Ray Joel, America’s Next Top Model Judge Jay Manuel, Celebrity Stylsit June Ambrose, Miss Universe Leila Lopes, Miss Teen  USA Logan West, Actor Vincent De Paul, and James Goldstein among many others.
