...And Fashion Week Is Still Happening
It's the home stretch of New York's most indulgent time of year, Fashion Week, and we were itching to see some of the action happening inside hotels. Luckily, our patience was rewarded with this video taken at the Soho Grand, of luxury lingerie brand Agent Provocateur debuting their Kinky Couture line. Picturing lots of pretty long-haired girls strutting up and down a carpeted room in their skivvies? That about sums it up.
In the video, you can see expressionless fashion editors scribbling furiously in their notebooks as models show off the hand-studded, Swarovski-encrusted duds—which didn't do a great job of concealing much (but that's the point). All we can say is good thing there weren't any handbags involved.
So far this Fashion Week, plenty of top designers have made use of NYC hotels to showcase their collections. To name a few:
Nautica at the Empire Hotel pool deck, Paola Hernandez at the Hotel Americano, Loden Dager in the basement of Hudson Hotel, Whit and Fotini at the Gramercy Park Hotel, Ray Vincente at the Bryant Park Hotel, and Marchesa at the Plaza (for a full recap, see NY Mag's calendar here.)
Now that Fashion Week is over—sadness!—where will we go to see naked people? Oh, wait, nevermind.
