Bustle was not your typical runway show. There were more theatrics behind the show (than any other) which made it so much more engaging to the audience than all the other shows that we saw that week. What began as a Parisian/New York fusion of a back drop with 2 female models taking pictures evolved into those models strutting down the runway turning the tables. Whereas models are used to getting their pictures snapped by show goers, these models took turns snapping photos of the audience and posing coyly at the end of the runway. And with all of the models walking so happily against the infectious music, we couldn’t help but smile ourselves.
Bustle’s S/S 2015 Collection
Bustle put together a collection of well tailored jackets and separates in a cool blue/turquoise base with accents of salmon that popped up here and there. A recurring nautical theme made itself apparent throughout the collection in a variety of stripes in different widths.
Many of the silhouettes were sharp and designed with clean lines that accentuated the male models’ broad shoulders and masculine forms. Crisp collars and exposed cuffs were a prominent detail to the collection’s aesthetic, as well as chunky glasses and white sneakers.
Together the stripes and the choice fabric of crisp linens evoked an invigorating and fresh emotion from the collection that had us wanting every single piece to ourselves (if not to dress up a man in our lives). The female models proved that menswear doesn’t have to just be reserved for men. A couple of girls walked down the runway in well tailored suits that had sharp lines and a minimalistic aesthetic. If this collection doesn’t make you want to put on your blazer than we don’t know what will.
