News: Fashion Goes Underground

Though it may be cheap and convenient, New York public transit isn’t exactly chic. That is, until now. While regular riders in the Big Apple will be familiar with transit ads featuring clever subway-themed goods available through the city’s Transit Museum, the Council of Fashion Designers of America have taken the concept of transit merchandise far beyond token trinkets. Last summer, council member Yeohlee Teng turned the subway platform under Bryant Park into a runway, showcasing nine exquisitely designed accessories inspired by mass transit. Pieces included a charm bracelet by Stephen Dweck that is fashioned from vintage subway tokens and a sleek pair of calfskin boots by Kenneth Cole, complete with transparent pocket for holding your metrocard.

The designs were auctioned off for big bucks last February to benefit the Museum, but you can catch your own subway style with the cute gear offered by New York City’s Transit Museum.
