NYFW SS 17 editor’s diary

The clothes, the girls and the moments between shows. RUSSH fashion and beauty director Billie Iveson shares the best of New York for Spring Summer 2017.

The shows …
Coach: we want to be members of Stuart Vevers’ girl gang, in Elvis tees, studded platforms and leather jackets.

Altuzarra
: slightly kitsch fruit prints, sequin cherries and pastel knits. The art of fun.

The sounds …
Michael Kors had us all loved up with Rufus Wainwright singing live.

The sets …
3.1 Phillip Lim’s flower-strewn warehouse and Boss’s colourful light show set the mood right.

Between shows …
Most memorable meal went to Café Cluny in the West Village for steak frites during a sun shower, and we could never look past martinis at Le Turtle.

The faces …
We loved seeing Carolyn Murphy close Michael Kors and RUSSH girl Jess PW make a strong start to SS 17.

The place to be …
The Coach fragrance launch at Lucky Strike, where we drank champagne and ate mini sliders.
