Romeo Hunte Displays Minimalism at NYFW

Romeo Hunte’s NYFW Presentation

Romeo Hunte’s NYFW Presentation took place on Friday, September 8th at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, which is a military and maritime history museum. The venue was located right on the water at Pier 86 and was the perfect space for such a unique collection.

About 20 models stood posed on a long runway wearing different chic, urban ensembles. Each model wore fishnet tights, heeled Timberland construction boots, and their hair pinned back with many, very visible bobby pins.

The show’s color palette was pretty subdued except for a few pops of red. Most garments were nude, white, black, and gray. Hunte wasn’t afraid to have his models show a little skin by forgoing pants, and letting the fishnets do the talking. img_5586

Hunte’s pieces that incorporated camouflage print were some of my favorites. In the above looks, one model is wearing fishnets, boots, oversized earrings, and a camo jacket with black three quarter sleeves worn as a dress. The model to her left is wearing a blue denim dress with side panels of camo print. I could picture these looks walking down a Yeezy runway, as it resembles that simple yet chic and innovative style of dressing.

I love a good corset, and Hunte certainly did not disappoint. This white corset laces up in the back and has long sleeves that actually tie behind the model’s arms for a serious high fashion moment. The name “Romeo Hunte” is printed all over the corset in small text. To the left of the model, is a red jacket that I can’t help but talk about. Elbow slits, synched waist, ties on the wrist…these are all hints of a very good jacket. It would definitely be a statement piece but I could see it paired with jeans for a more practical, wearable look.

I really enjoyed the Romeo Hunte presentation and loved having time to walk up to each model individually and examine the ensemble closely. Hunte’s NYFW presentation brought the minimalist approach to a whole new level by adding daring prints and pops of color.
