Skingraft NYFW Ready-To-Wear Fall/Winter 2014 Collection

Jammed packed like a Japanese subway car, the room was filled beyond its capacity as fashion stalkers all wanted to get a glimpse of the impeccable fashion designs of Skingraft.

As the brothers, Jonny and Christopher Cota, continue to push boundaries and redefine Skingraft season after season, it is always identifiable by its unique layered aesthetic, intricate detailing and standout silhouettes — often imitated but never duplicated.

Reminiscent of Hunger Games, in which Skingraft clothing can be seen, they too were one of the many designers who paid close attention to the wants and desires of the young elite, the hood rich, and the dark and twisted fashion mavens.

As the show opened, the crowd of fashion gawkers glued their eyes to the jet black coat with hood and zippers worn by a male model creating the air of mystery and darkness. There was something to admire as the clothing continued to come down the runway in leathers and cotton giving the audience a lot of street style with a touch of panache. Most of the designs coming down the runway have a hood. Can a good hoodie ever go out of style?

Leather galore! There was so much leather that one would feel like a badass just looking at it. A woman in leather looks so good. Think Angelina Jolie as Laura Croft or Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen. These ladies are heroes, the epitome of feminine power. This is the look of the new generation and it is amazing.

A lot of the clothing had the word “Alpha” written on them leaving art lovers to guess the meaning. It is the assumption of this writer, that the new world is here and the youth of today are in charge.

Skingraft was not afraid to stick to the theme of all black. There were a few pieces that had accents of silver or gold but black ruled the evening and it was fantastic! A touch of color is just enough to accentuate the style.

A highlight of the women’s line was a kimono sleeved jacket made of leather with a hood and a belt closure. It is very upscale and chic. Another was an A-symmetrical long leather coat with side zipper, and high collar neck. Paired with knee-length boots, astounding!

In the men’s collection the highlight was the abstract jacket that had the face of a bear. It is very artsy and strong with the quilted pattern and the mix of textures.

Overall, the hip hop generation of rich and glamorous will be drawn to the clothing of Skingraft. Already fashion trendsetters Rihanna, Beyonce and P. Diddy have worn Skingraft, and that is just a few of the many. Jonny and Chris are closely becoming the go-to designers for hot fashion and malevolent style which is oh so good!
