For his runway debut, Simon Spurr presented his new eponymous high-end tailored collection to a front row full of the fashion industry’s most stylish men including Hamish Bowles, Robert Verdi, and Derek Blasberg. The 2009 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalist infused his menswear with British influences such as deerskin day bags, plaid and striped suits, fedoras, and geek glasses.

Overwhelmed by blissful couples on Valentine’s Day, we were delighted to take refuge under the tents to see Tony Cohen’s smokey-eyed models stomp down a runway of black rose petals in peep-toe bondage booties. The Dutch designer created a dramatic aesthetic with a black, silver, and deep burgundy color palette, leather sleeve gloves, and thick leather belts fastened around draped dresses. Our favorite aspect of the collection was Cohen’s embroidery work on his mesh leggings and gloves, bringing his wearable looks to an artistic level.
