New York Fashion Week sophomore Karolyn Pho hit the runway of Chelsea’s Studio 59 for a presentation of her Spring/Summer collection “Vagabond.” Models trudged out in white Dansko clogs, outfitted in a collection that could possibly described as “vintage normcore,” if that’s not any oxymoron. Pinafores, shift dresses, and tuxedo jackets came out in nude, sky blue, and white, with the occasional pink or emerald piece. A few outfits very closely resembled spruced-up workwear (think glam janitor, trendy scientist), while others were covered in iridescent sequins. Several looks incorporated gauzy layers over cheetah print, while details like mock turtlenecks, pleats, and mesh continued the theme of borrowing from fashion eras past. The color palette and music selections were decidedly in the now, but certain elements of the collection seemed to lack cohesion. Slicked back hair was styled by Charlie Price for Scruples Haircare, while Romero Jennings for the MAC Pro Team created glowing, barely-there faces.
