Fashion dreams took flight as Laurence & Chico presented their Fall / Winter 2017 Collection, at Pier 59 Studios.
The collection was comprised of 18 looks that include a combination of oversized velvet pieces and more tailored, intricate looks. Using Laurence’s vibrant illustrations, Chico designed the collection with pillows, cushions and comfort in mind. Pearls in various sizes were used as embellishments on jacquards and puffed up velvets, in addition to functioning as seams, connecting different together materials to create a new fabrication. Using the brand’s signature prints and fabric manipulation, the duo created a captivating feeling of being up in the air: dreamy, euphoric and ethereal.
Models were accessorized with oversized square wigs, custom gloves, shoes and phone cases from their collaboration with Candies. Each look was finished with a futuristic makeup look by Beautyblender, which supplied its own Pro team for the first time this season.
The presentation featured model Shaun Ross (Laurence & Chico is the only show he is walking in this season) and music by DJ May Kwok. Joining in the celebration were notables that included Miss J. Alexander, Larsen Thompson, Vienna Skye, Louisa Warwick, Mery Racauchi, Cailli + Sam Beckerman and more.
