There’s something about the way Perry Ellis was styled at the show. Normally I pass it in stores and don’t think twice, but after the show I wanted every design that came down the runway. Normally I don’t pay much attention to the clothing, but this stuff was actually good. I wanted EVERYTHING (except the horizontal striped sweater)! And congratulations to whomever did model casting on successfully picking nearly 25 identical models. Everybody needs a Perry Ellis boy to bring home to meet the parents.
I gotta give T.O. (Terrell Owens for those of you athletically challenged) and Will.I.Am bonus points for their surprisingly non diva-like behavior in the front row. I assume T.O. was only behaved because he had a full camera crew following his every move. I have no idea what Will.I.Am’s excuse was. Either way, impressive boys!
I apologize for only reporting on two shows this year but I look forward to hitting the tents hard next season when they move uptown to Lincoln Center. Until then I’ll be snacking on the Zone Bars they gave out in the lobby and saving up vacation days so I can do fashion week right.
