The Art of the Showroom: wings + horns and Reigning Champ SS 18

Many NYFW:M brands use runway shows and presentations for artistic displays, then have business meetings with our buyers in straightforward showrooms. This year the Canadian powerhouse of wings + horns (designer brand) and Reigning Champ (sport brand) put all its eggs in the showroom basket.

That turned out to be a wise move, because they curated an art exhibit that will stick in our buyers’ minds for a long time. With tall white walls, a blackened Hawaiian forest, and a 3-D Reigning Champ logo that morphed as you walked around it, being there felt like being on another planet—a nearly monochromatic, sporty, severe version of Earth.

The occasion? Reigning Champ’s 10-year anniversary. But also, the brands’ designer, Tung Vo, is a detail-obsessed creator of worlds. Given the chance to wild out—the CEO said it was OK—he went all the way in.

Check out the clothes below and get into the artwork. We interviewed artist Andrew Dadson about his piece, “Black Plants.”

Cozycomfycool: Cold-Weather Looks

Is there any amount of cozy that’s too cozy? When the weather gets cold, the answer is no. With athleisure feeling less like a trend these days and more like a paradigm shift, designers are putting comfort at the forefront of their fashion. It’s all the better for stacking clothes and taking coziness to the max. Try stepping out of the house wearing fuzzy socks—fuzzy shoes, even—and two jackets at the same time: a middle layering piece and an overcoat. Then you shall know the true meaning of cozy. Be inspired by these looks and layer up.

Our model here is Tay Sean, rapper and producer extraordinaire. If you don’t know him, his new album, Leavings, is outstanding experimental hip-hop. Dressing-wise, he has a unique style, so we met with him ahead of time in the store so he could help choose clothes from our men’s and men’s designer departments. His reaction:

“I didn’t realize Nordstrom had so much cool stuff.”

Check out our cozy looks below and our interview with Tay Sean about his music and personal style.
