What Went Into Chromat’s A/W 2017 Collection


Kim Kardashian may have had an impact

The world is melting. Global warming, despite what some self-interested politicians might argue, is very real. It's easy to think this means that our future selves will require clothing that keeps us afloat. As it turns out, though, the future is now.

It was done to, as Chromat's Becca McCharen-Tran says, help "the wearer feel lifted and protected." (Kim Kardashian West, as you'll learn in the video above, had some influence, as well.)

It all came together in a blue-drenched, floor-shaking production that reveled in the intersection between fashion and politics, which helped make Chromat's show one of NYFW's most exciting. (As if a Chromat show could be anything but.) Learn all about the inspo for the show in the video, above.

Maybe just... keep scrolling instead

On Thursday, model Ireland Baldwin posted a photo of herself in just a thong with her butt exposed, posing on the balcony of her New York City hotel room. Instead of staying quiet and scrolling past it, like most family members would in this case, both her father Alec and uncle Billy Baldwin just had to post their thoughts on it.
