Every season New York Magazine asks top designers to give us a hint of what we can look forward to in their up coming collections. Without giving away too much proprietary information, the designers were asked to submit one picture along with one word that best describes the inspiration for their fall creations. The mix varied from mod shapes to funk to outer space, but these were a few of my favorite looks. I guess I’m drawn to the mystery of things. These also seem to have a “Hitchcock” vibe, and well, I love Alfred Hitchcock. Sold!
The first picture is Kenneth Cole and the word is “Liberation”.
The second picture is Monika Chiang and the word is “Flight”.
The third picture is Cynthia Rowley and the word is “CuRious”.
The fourth picture is Yigal Azrouel and the word is “Temptation”.
The last two pictures are my submissions. They’re posters from the original movie release of “The Birds”. I’m pretty sure I’ve nailed the inspiration source. Who can deny it? My words for both would be “Hitchcock”.
I’ve attached the final scene from the 1963 thriller “The Birds” by Alfred Hitchcock for your morning suspense fix. I hope you like it. Guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat.
