The Real Thing: Maison the Faux NYFW SS17

Wearable Art at Maison the Faux SS17

MAISON THE FAUX SPRING SUMMER 2017Probably not many of us are going out with nipples exposed. And yet, taken individually, many of the Maison the Faux looks were imminently wearable: even if playfully outrageous.

Models were styled to look as if they were going to a 1980s after-hours club. There was no shortage of skin showing, and most models were androgynous. The makeup by Yuui Vision for Make-Up Studio was especially beautiful. I loved the theatrics of this show, and appreciated the concept: of unquenchable desire for more.

Many of the Maison the Faux looks were imminently wearable.

The collection featured an assortment of great suits for men and women. The coats were also superb. My personal favorite was a pair of heels that had pillows that read “faux.” (I need to find out where to get those ASAP.)

The show was a fun departure from what I usually see during fashion week, and I’m already looking forward to seeing what Maison the Faux does next.


With love,
