Soho, Dune Studios
Bonobos Spring ’15 Presentation
I always love attending the Bonobos presentations. They always feel like warm, intimate, personal affairs rather than perfunctory, clinical fashion shows. The spring showing took place a stone’s throw away from my apartment in Soho at Dune studios with stellar models, some covet worthy pieces, hors d’Oeuvres and beer, wine and cocktails. Now that’s my idea of showing. As per usual, my favorite person in the room was PR rep Erin Grant who always keeps me fully up to date on the brand and all the ways they are refining it. This spring they are doing great things with knitwear, so much so that I really wanted to get a singular shot of the model sporting my favorite sweater and was fortunate to get Erin in the shot as well. I really enjoyed how pared down all the looks were with hints of details whether it be suede fabrication, Nike kicks, pops of color, flashes of print, a pocket square in a denim jacket or taking a lightweight piece and mixing it with a heavier layering piece. Suffice it to say, even though fall just began, spring can’t get here fast enough.
