Runway Rundown: Jonathan Simkhai Gets Scrambled

A year after making his MADE Fashion Week debut, Jonathan Simkhai is back, and with a vengeance. The girls in the Fall/Winter ’16 collection looked as if they had just exited a ski lodge in the south of France, champagne glass in hand, and were on their way to a VIP lounge at an exclusive club most likely named after a tree. Simkhai employed every kind of material—knits, lace, fur and frills to name a few—to create a peplum revolution that’s sure to give Blake Lively heart palpitations. While that seemed like a lot, cutouts and bodycon silhouettes had the models looking like femme fatale showstoppers. The NYC based designer has clearly evolved from his initial stated intent to dress “the modern cosmopolitan woman.” Today, the show was nothing short of architectural elegance.

Adding to Our Shopping List…

The pale rose colored fur, which would seriously come in handy for our walk to the subway in this bone-chilling winter. It was such a key, bad-bitch look that I expect riots to erupt if we don’t see it on Cookie in the next season of Empire.

We Spied…

Ruffles strong enough for Russian mafia wives with a shot of vodka or three in hand. Russian Imperial Heiness Anastasia is surely ogling these unforgettable looks—which are, incidentally, a far cry from the foliage embellished numbers of seasons past.

The Surreal Soundtrack…

As models walked the runway in pieces that we dream about wearing to the next royal wedding, a hard mix of trap house club bangers played through the speakers and got us involuntarily dancing. It was the perfect soundtrack for leaving the groom at the altar to run off to a nightclub and escape your woes.

We Can’t Wait to Wear This…

The all-black lace dress that was straight out of Morticia Addams’s date night wardrobe. It was classic with an edge, and ideal for the next time we decide to light some candles and invite over some trade to Netflix and chill.

The Takeaway…

The collection flirted with the female figure, mixing fabrics and embellishments to create a silhouette tailor-made for a Valentine’s Day date. With ample lace, fur, and peplum, the clothes were equal parts sultry and elegant.
