New York


Spring 2017 Ready-to-Wear

New York

BY Ashley W. Simpson

September 9, 2016

For Spring 2017, Amanda Phelan looked to the ultra-feminine power woman. This collection wasn’t about blurring boundaries or deconstructing the gendered space, but rather celebrating and owning the traditionally feminine in the modern age.

•This translated into black-and-white plays on a deconstructed nightgown; form-fitting, Alaia-esque, ultra-thin knit silhouettes that brought in elements of formality and the ladylike; ruffles on techy skirts and neutral corset pieces; and oversized grommet detailing.

•Oil painter Caitlin MacBride was a key reference. Phelan says she looked to MacBride’s dreamlike, layered style when constructing her liquid silver suiting.

•As usual, there was a performance element to Phelan’s show—a beautiful number choreographed by Shannon Gillen further celebrated the female form.

•The casting was pretty major—Lineisy Montero, Alice Metza, Grace Bol, and more walked.
