Saturday Night At Milk Studios: Alejandro Ingelmo And Ostwald Helgason


I would like to offer a big thanks to Milk Studios for making our lives easier during NYFW. I was able to see four presentations last night, all of which were on the same floor, one room next to the other (and, on such a chilly Saturday night, it was nice not to be running around the city). First stop: shoe designer Alejandro Ingelmo’s first “real” presentation, where his men’s fur-lined high-tops were the talk of night. The female editors in the room were calling for a women’s version of the shoe. Don’t worry, ladies, it’s coming soon.

After stops at Dean Quinn and Anndra Neen, the ultimate surprise of the night came from the London-based design duo Susanne Ostwald and Ingvar Helgason of Ostwald Helgason. Their latest collection (pictured above) was filled with pieces I want to wear now. The animal-print sweatshirts, ruffled miniskirts, cocktail dresses with interesting volume in the back, parkas, and printed coats would all be perfect pieces for the runway shows. This is definitely a brand to watch—it’s one of my favorite collections of the season so far and I am ready to add my name into the wait list for the clothes already.
