Malan Breton’s Unique Design Genius
Style Fashion Week New York
On February 8th, I had the pleasure to attend Style Fashion Week New York.
The luxurious Cipriani was the perfect destination for this venue. International designers showcased their collections amidst a colorful and expansive art market. All photos are mine, with one exception, clearly credited to a wonderful photographer.
So much visual beauty was a wonderful contrast to the stark, cold and dull winter day. I commend Style Fashion Week New York for this energizing mix!
The shows were fabulous; energetic and dazzling. My favorite was Malan Breton, for his exquisite use of rich fabrications and unique design genius.
Below I start with a breathtaking gown from Malan Breton. The silhouette and lush fabric speaks for itself.
More shots below from the self-taught designer. Style Fashion Week New York did a fabulous job with every detail of this event. Luminous talent , such as this, came off without a hitch.
Malan Breton: Cryptocurrency Visionary
Malan Breton is a warm and enigmatic persona. He is also quite relevant in both design trends and future marketing strategies. For instance, Malan Breton is the first designer to become a part of the cryptocurrency phenomenon, opening the first blockchain-based online retail fashion shop in a partnership with Tokenly, and SohoMuse. This is quite a phenomenon .
More shots from his show, to be augmented later, in a future post.

Is there anything that dazzles more than a full sweep of skirt of saturated silk rendered in layers upon layers? Nah!
Breton is known for his bespoke suits for men, as well as his luxe gowns for women, below is a perfect example of both. I created this montage from shots I took at the event. The lighting at Style Fashion Week New York was just right.
Graciously, and with his signature warmth, Malan Breton exits and takes a bow to thunderous applause.
Below, a shot of me wearing a Prada tweed skirt with a Chanel tweed jacket , a perfect example of my signature style of rich textures and mixed pattern play. You saw a similar outfit that I wore here, at an art opening.
I hope you made it through this busy and rainy week. I know it has been one extreme or another, for just about all of my friends. Let me know how you are! Did you follow NYFW? If not, no worries, there is more to come on all The Elle Diaries media platforms, from my blog and many others.
Lots of coverage for Style Fashion Week New York !
I will leave you with Malan’s Breton’s motto:
WHEREVER YOU GO, SHINE!
