At Brandon Maxwell, Modern Clothes for Today’s Woman


Yesterday, as we walked out of the Brandon Maxwell show I said to a friend, “Now THAT’S a fashion show.” Editors have seen a lot this New York Fashion Weekflaming hot Cheetos, robots, Matrix-corporate models—but Maxwell still managed to floor us with a casual, glamorous collection that celebrated the modern woman.

Staged in NYC’s The Appel room, a space that usually houses jazz, opera, theater, and dance performances, flowers and fog clouds filled the room. It felt like we’d stepped into a music video or movie dream sequence from the late ‘80s, but in the best way possible.

Miguel’s Pineapple Skies rang out from the speakers as Bella Hadid opened the show in a gray robe dress paired with Swarovski crystal chandelier earrings and furry flats. Exactly what you’d want to wear for a relaxed dinner party at your home.

From there, more models walked the runway in wearable clothing (knit trousers that give you a peach emoji booty, a sleeveless knit piece Joan Smalls worked the hell out of, and your new have-to-have denim jacket), solidifying my desperate desire to be a Brandon Maxwell woman.

Towards the middle of the show, Maxwell kicked things up a notch with a selection of more formal pieces. Jourdan Dunn’s party dress, a day glow yellow jumpsuit, and a cool velvet tuxedo, were among my favorites, but it was clear the designer saved his most show stopping pieces for last: Karlie Kloss in a black jumpsuit (complete with runway walk and smize for the Gods!) and Gigi Hadid in a hoodie and ball gown skirt.

The best part of the show, though, was Maxwell bringing out his entire design team (predominantly women) to join him for his bow. As they walked and waved to the crowd I screamed while another friend’s eyes welled up. It was beautiful to see the women who helped create this beautiful collection also get their due. A small gesture of respect during an especially fraught time in the fight for women’s rights.
