NYFW SS 18 editor’s diary

From Raf Simons at Calvin Klein 205W39NYC to drinks with Dion Lee at the Soho Grand Hotel. Contributing fashion editor Melissa Levy shares the best moments from New York Fashion Week.

Shows …
Dion Lee: I worked on the show with Lee, it was a super special day.
Eckhaus Latta: They represent a new generation that is unearthing, finally. It feels like there is a new wave of young and inspiring talent brewing in New York city.
Calvin Klein 205W39NYC: The second season in and a new card has been placed building the hand of the Calvin Klein evolution from Raf Simons. Texture, colour, narrative, casting and respect for the all-American house at 205 W 28th St. A lighthouse of energy in the once seemingly dormant New York.

Sets …
Area’s roof top playground, with that New York evening light and a cool breeze of fall.
Coach’s glitter runway.

Faces …
Anne-Sophie Monrad who just shot the Céline campaign with Juergen Teller.
Lena Hardt and Marte Mei van Haaster are all time favourites.

Between shows …
Lalito in Tribeca for the best American-Mexican snacks when on the run, Weather Up for post-show cocktails and the historic Chelsea Hotel for respite from the Fashion Week madness.

Places to be …
The Calvin Klein 205W39NYC industrial after party for the perfect way to kick off the week, and Dion Lee’s post-show drinks with him and his amazing team at the Soho Grand.
