NYFW Spring 2012: Whit's '60s Wedding
The Venue: The Gramercy Terrace at the Gramercy Park Hotel
The Scene: The ivy up on the roof of the Gramercy blended well with the minimalist desert backdrop, setting the mood for Whitney Pozgay’s WHIT presentation. The designer had lots of family and friends on hand for support, including uncle Andy Spade and designer Steven Alan. What's more, the party was thrown by Bon Appetit and Chef Fabio Viviani, which meant being in the company of many dapper types, including Glen O’Brien and Adam Rapoport. They mixed in well with the young fashion crowd, who took a break from the tents to come see WHIT.
The Look: Imagine you’re a guest at a wedding in Marfa—in the ‘60s. There were mix and match graphic prints and lots of colorways. Even a midriff-baring dress! Indeed, this showing was bit less conservative than Pozgay’s previous collections.
What We Want to Buy: We loved the border town feel of the whole collection. “I’m just an Arizona girl,” the designer told us. The open-weave sweaters—especially the white one the designer was wearing—made us wish we’d grown up with Whitney in the Southwest. Come this spring, at least we can look like it.
