Style Fashion Week New York – Malan Breton Shines

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.

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.
