New York Fashion Week: Suzanne Rae
She may design ecofriendly getups, but don’t call Suzanne Rae green. It takes an expert to send a raffia-trimmed, semisheer, white gown down the runway (boardwalk, in this case) looking glamorous.
Left-Field Time-Period Nod: 19th-century Japan, or at least nostalgia for it.
Where to Wear: Cotton bikinis with bloomer bottoms and a white maillot would do well for a peaceful lake weekend. Cover up with any of the silk, puddle-print (a collab with photographer Renato D’Agostin) slips and dresses.
Tat Looks Cool: Models wore large-scale, temporary back and arm tattoos, swaths of red over their eyelids, and hair swept into long vertical combs.
