Brandon Maxwell - #NYFW Spring 2017

"The clothes were energizing. Brandon Maxwell admitted to wanting "to make a bit more of a wearable collection," and that this one is particular was inspired by "learning a lot of different types of love this year." That goal was accomplished, that love was shown (Naomi Campbell, in addition to Gaga, rose for a standing ovation). Where in the past Maxwell's gowns and separates have been relatively covered-up and statement-making, tonight he offered more sexiness, more sharp silhouettes, and more general variation than before. Whether in a crisp white tailored blazer, a noir bow-front silk top, or an olive deep-V dress with piped cross-body wraps at the abdomen, what was most convincing was seeing how the models handled the looks. No wonder the audience rejoiced when Maxwell took his bow; finally, they'd been hit with a shot of pure fun, this one in voluminous '80s groove with a monochrome '90s shellac and a twenty-teens Insta-glam sensibility." -
