On Friday, September 7th, Artistix hosted the unveiling of their new S/S 2019 collection at New York Fashion Week. The runway style show took place at Cedar Lake Theatre and included 23 looks for both men and women.
The collection, titled Sierra, is based on a painting of the same name by owner and creator of Artistix, Greg Polisseni. By using the given color palette, Creative Director of the brand, Andy Hilfiger, then created an “active-fashion” line, featuring body suits and track pants for women as well as, anoraks and cargo shorts for men.
“This show was about introducing the idea of active-fashion,” said Andy Hilfiger. “The concept is that you should feel comfortable but look fashionable so we included color-blocked bodysuits, embellished track suits, and lightly filled outerwear.”
Familiar faces filled the runway kicking off with Andy’s niece and model, Audrey Hilfiger. This was Audrey’s New York Fashion Week debut after strutting the runway earlier that week in Shanghai for her other uncle, Tommy Hilfiger’s show. The modeling cast also included Andrew Hilfiger, Andy’s son, and viral sensation Shiggy, both sporting Artistix new 90’s inspired stripped series. The front row also featured familiar faces including Tommy Hilfiger, La La Anthony, Tim Hardaway Jr., and rappers Grand Puba, and AZ.
“The clothes are dope,” raved La La Anthony. “I love those sweatpants, the yellow see-through ones. I’m putting in my order today!”
