Day 3 NYFW: ADAM Luxury & Casual

By Candace Cabrera Moore

Inspired by an exhibit at the National Museum of the American Indian in lower Manhattan, the Adam fall '11 collection was filled with texture, details and warm colors. Nearly every one of the 34 looks had a wool foundation, many of which were contrasted by a softer fabric like silk, lace, or crepe. Models wore their hair in a super chic low, teased ponytail with minimal make-up, making the focus really be about the clothing. We were particularly drawn to a luxurious fur coat worn effortlessly over high waist, belted trousers and a denim colored shirt- it really underscored the idea that luxury pieces can (and should!) be a part of your every day wear. Another piece that stole our hearts was a feathered mini skirt with warm rust and violet tones. Like the fur coat, the skirt was paired with pieces so "normal" (a chunky sweater and chunky knit winter hat), and the lesson of mixing luxe and casual wear came quickly back to mind. We can't wait to start incorporating this idea into our own every day wear!
