Fashion Correspondent Joe Jonas has done a Streetwear Rundown for NYMag! Opening Ceremony’s show was a literal treat. The audience knew something was up because it smelled like a bakery when we walked in, and then chocolate started dripping from the walls midway through the show. I did feel a little sorry for the designers’ actual work, though, because as soon as the chocolate started to fall, people stopped looking at the runway.
Here’s how irresistible that wall was: After the show, my girlfriend, Blanda, and Kelly Rowland, who was sitting next to us, went over to lick the wall together and got covered in chocolate. It was a bit of a mess, but also memorable..
.A streetwear trend I have noted on people at the shows is a simple, white-soled sneaker. A look that keeps showing up in the shows themselves is a leather skirt over jeans for men. I’d try that out, but I think I’ve seen it too many times for it to feel fresh.
(By the way, I did try that Richard Chai–inspired idea of tying a shirt sideways around my waist! I think it worked?) When it comes to clothes, I tend to have sort of ‘interesting’ taste, and Blanda will sometimes tell me to calm it down a bit. But I appreciate it! Again: I always want to keep my look balanced.
