Cynthia Rowley - #NYFW Spring 2017

"Cynthia Rowley was searching for a word, the right word, to describe her Spring collection. The presentation-turned-party in her West Village HQ had started and the friends and fans amassing out front were beginning to filter in. But she had to think of this word. "Pillow fight?" someone offered, referring to the small cloud of white feathers drifting down on models who frolicked about a stage piled with empty duvet covers. No, not what she was looking for. Then, while flitting about, "Dreamy!"she gasped. It's an apt descriptor. Watching the fantasy feather party, which Rowley envisioned as the inside of a snow globe, the screwball '60s sitcom "I Dream of Jeannie" came to mind. Which is to say, fun-spirited, zany, a little retro, and just the right amount of outré. Girlish, but not girly. From among the dancing models, Rowley pointed out silky pajama styles, a lamé satin number, an updated kimono dress, lightweight brocades, and assorted shiny prints, particularly one with floating signs of the zodiac. Even nightgowns with bell sleeves felt fresh and young. Rowley explained "So it's a casual, relaxed mix, because, ultimately, I just want to be super comfy all the time." -
