VFiles prides itself on being a hot mess—to steal a phrase from one of the brand’s early adopters, Luka Sabbat—and this season was no different. The show, which took place next door to Playstation Theater in Times Square, opened with a performance by Joey Purp and closed with 21 Savage. Other front row guests included AlunaGeorge as well as the rapper Fabolous, who was a recent New York Men’s Week ambassador. From what he’d seen so far, he was into the vintage trend, but decidedly not into crop tops. Noted. Of the three emerging VFiles designers to show, first up was Snow Xue Gao, who mixed traditional wool suiting with suspenders and kimonos. Then there was Daniëlle Cathari, a student from Amsterdam who took Adidas track suits, tore them apart, and stitched them back together again. And then finally, Strateas Carlucci, an Australian duo whose theme was “fetish cowboy.” Yee haw. See every angle of the VFiles extravaganza, here.
