Downtown Shines at Azede Jean-Pierre
A certain dichotomy resonated at the Azede Jean-Pierre presentation at The Standard Hotel, Highline‘s wood-paneled show space—either this muse has an identity crisis or has a confident clear distinction of day or night event-specific dressing. She definitely has two opposing lifestyles.
By day, a downtown chick is either cozied up in a forest green bobbled sweater dress or fresh out of gyrotonics in relaxed grey track pants and tanks and an ivory beanie. By night, she channels the ivory into a softened 1950s flared, skirted duchess satin structured dress or a black rabbit fur jacket.
She did carry through the moss hues though, via a shiny silk fitted coat in a bid to polish herself up to meet the in-laws. Her best friend in the closet would certainly be a rose-gold sweatshirt with a matching skirt. The outstanding question was whether she was as internally conflicted as she seemed on first glance—and even if she is, maybe that doesn’t really matter? Coded sartorial rules in fashion these days are for conservative Upper East Side princesses who don’t dare break the mold. This girl doesn’t seem to care either way.
