Malan Breton kicked off this FW/18 New York Fashion Week season’s Style Fashion Week event with a captivating, fast-paced runway show at Cipriani in Manhattan on February 8, 2018. After an incredible performance by teen jazz pianist Matthew Whitaker, the designer set the stage for a dramatic and theatrical presentation. The Richard Magazine team was on the scene to capture the hottest, most buzzed-about moments from the full-house show, and trust us: you are in for a special treat here.
Structured shoulders, bold and colorful suit prints, and intricately detailed gowns ruled the catwalk of the designer’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection showcase. We’re talking shiny black feather skirts, leather lace-up corsets, and elaborate, show-stopping trains that elicited enchanted gasps from the crowd. Our editors’ jaws literally hit the floor when we saw a series of backless gowns and sheer body-con styles slink down the runway, on models wearing severe, slicked-back ponytails.
Adding to a current trend in NYFW productions, Malan Breton showed a mixed collection of menswear and womenswear at once during this event. The menswear styles ranged from street style-approved coats, tracksuits, and zip-up jackets to a statement-making formal orange suit that stole our hearts. In addition to enviable, red carpet-ready gowns, the women’s line offered tons of fierce workwear inspiration, from structured blazers to spy-in-disguise trench coats and luxurious printed trousers.
