After dominating Los Angeles Fashion Week for multiple seasons, yesterday Skingraft presented its first-ever New York runway show at Pier 59 Studios. While other designers honored Cali in a more literal manner, designer Jonny Cota expertly showcased the diversity of our city's style with a range of sleek and structured looks there were anything but beach-ready.
Just like his LA and New York stores, the leather-loving Cota filled his men's and women's runway with supple skins that offered a sophisticated approach to statement sportswear. Never one to miss a wild card moment (remember that visor revival?), SG peppered its black and white offerings with an army of digital prints that fans like Beyoncé and Bieber will be reaching for soon enough.
