Fashion Week Diaries: SAFE by Rebecca Turbow..Lots Of Grey Clothes And Pornographic Cereal Boxes

Monday we ventured "off-campus" to witness the hipster/goth model explosion that was SAFE by Rebecca Turbow. Shown in a gallery that has VERY provocative art on the walls (we can’t show you any of it close up but think cereal boxes using extremely, um, stimulating imagery), we were thrown into a grunge, underground art explosion filled with a crowd of very moody artsy types drinking boxed wine out of plastic cups.

We consider ourselves pretty creatively open but even we couldn’t get past what they did to poor old Cap’n Crunch on that wall.

Once I gained focus, I realized I actually dug the clothes. Rebecca’s got quite the knack for tailoring and showed in a palette of almost entirely grey, silver and black. The models hung out on white cubes in front of the art and managed to achieve the perfect hipster slouch paired with slightly disgruntled facial expressions – so perfect, in fact, we had a hard time distinguishing them from onlookers dressed in similar shades of black and grey.

The trends at this show? Well, other than copious amounts of eye makeup (on both sexes), we can honestly say that we’ve never seen so many black peacoats in our lives. The ubiquitous Army/Navy store piece is firmly entrenched in the hipster culture here in New York and we think it’s something worth borrowing.

We’re particularly fond of this Indya Hoodie Peacoat ($159) which is warm enough to fight off the elements but cool enough to dress up denim or toughen up a pretty dress. And if you want to mimic the caped grey look SAFE was showcasing, we suggest this Soia & Kyo Cape Coat ($207, was $413).

So, we’re back to the tents again and we can definitely say the next time we haul our 4” heels off-site, we’ll be sure to bring extra mascara just in case.
