MISBHV Felt Like 2003-Era Paris Hilton [NYFW]

The MISBHV presentation felt extremely now—because fashion now looks exactly like 2003. The early 2000s are joyfully, officially back; as MADE’s Hali Christou put it, “Glam has returned!” And MISBHV showed off the George Walker Bush years especially well. Sure, they dipped into the ‘90s with some JNCO-like pants, but in general, most of the separates could have worked for a night at Hyde with Paris Hilton.

MISBHV designer Natalia Maczek hails from Poland, and her brand definitely riffs of off Eastern European clubwear (think early Ed Hardy). All of its references seem to be done with a wink and a nudge, and the SS17 presentation at MADE New York was good, sequin-encrusted fun. The collection felt like an updated version of the best, campiest Italian fashion from a few decades ago, i.e. Versus and Fiorucci. But MISBHV is very much its own label, refreshing silhouettes with asymmetry and cutouts in a radical way. After all the spectacle, we are very much in need of a dance floor.

Adding to our Shopping Lists…

Well, everything. But all of the pants were killer. We expect to see a number of kids in Chinatown/Berlin/any undiscovered hip neighborhood filled with empty warehouses wearing the aforementioned JNCO-like trousers, rendered in black satin—complete with a sequined wallet chain. Wide-leg, patched low-rise jeans were excellent, and cargo-style pants in glittery fabric needed to be in our closets yesterday.

It’s in the Details…

All of the models wore glittery, pointy-toe heels, and a number were bedecked with sequined chains. A number of the trousers featured cutouts on the upper thighs, which is nice for catching a breeze/easy access.

The Look That Gave Us Life…

We loved one of the more low-key looks, jeans with an off-the-shoulder white top and a lace-up denim corset. Pink chaps were a showstopper, as was a shiny, grey, asymmetrical top that was straight out of the “Toxic” video.

We Can’t Wait To Wear This…

To the 2005 VMAs.
