For our second Nolcha Show, we attended the Acid NYC Fall-Winter 2019 Collection runway show. The label, co-founded by Evelyn Luna and Scott Chester, presented a men’s and women’s collection, called “Architectura”. The collection was inspired by the beauty and structure of urban architecture, with prints and fabric choices that are a nod to modern metal, glass facades, and neoclassical buildings. We are going to concentrate on the women’s ready-to-wear looks but we will be highlighting one men’s look – you’ll see why.
We must admit, we think this collection absolutely honors the chicness, fashion edge, skyline, and “no effs given” attitude that is New York. The prints and fabric choices from the Acid NYC Fall-Winter 2019 Collection were a study of modern metal and glass facades and neoclassical buildings with carved cornices of chiseled marble and cast cement. They analyze various building methods, how they reflect and emit light, and highlight the transformation that takes place from day to evening. There a lot to love from this collection. Their silhouettes are superb, the colors are striking, and the details and embellishments distinct. We also die for their accessories – turn your attention to those must-have bags.
The collection used a mix of richly colored fabrics that reflect and react to light; like shimmering lame, silk charmeuse, stamped patent leather, and metallic lace. For contrast matte textures of organza, wool double knit, brocade, velvet, and heavy wool felt were used. Speaking of heavy wool felt, Acid NYC brought a bit of the avant-garde to their ready-to-wear collection with their oversized jackets.
For this season’s event, the Nolcha Shows partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation for the second time. This season they grant the wishes of two young girls who shared a dream of being fashion models in NYC. Together, they received a life-changing, behind-the-scenes experience at NYFW which included backstage hair and makeup treatment, being styled and dressed by this season’s designers including ACID NYC, sitting front row at the shows, and enjoying a personal photo shoot with a professional fashion photographer.
The Acid NYC collection is designed and made in New York. We’d love to hear your thoughts on the Acid NYC Fall-Winter 2019 Collection.
