Kobi Halperin NYFW Debut
Designer Kobi Halperin shines with his debut spring 2024 fashion show. With immense garment variety, my New York Fashion week journey began with a bang. Launching his eponymous ready-to-wear label, Halperin is no stranger to the fashion scene. He aims to create pieces for the women who “celebrate getting dressed every day,” and that is exactly what this collection portrays.
The show opened with a series of monochromatic black looks. The first model rocked a maxi skirt, oversized vest, and bra top with delicate lace detailing. Each piece had a handcrafted feel with intricate design elements that felt luxurious. Many looks included a sunhat that just covered the eyes coupled with a slicked-back hairstyle, giving this entire collection a resort feel for spring.
Shades of Blue
Transitioning to lighter colors, Halperin debuted shades of turquoise and teal. Baggy sequined tees paired with glittery a-line skirts and platform sandals filled the stage. The colors popped against the plain white backdrop, forcing the audience to focus on the bright shades. The reflective nature of the sequins filled the room with light, adding a ’70s vibe to the collection. Matching sets are also here to stay. Halperin was not shy in pairing the dazzling blues together. The model sported a bob to fully emphasize the way the garments effortlessly fell on her shoulders.
Hues of green colored the runway as well. Keeping with the resort-esque theme, Halperin created a stunning forest green sundress with a plunging v-neckline. The pattern is reminiscent of palm fronds and the dress moved as if the wind was rustling the tree. A large, tan hat covered the top half of the model’s face, giving an anonymous feel to the look– almost as if it was Halperin’s goal for the audience to envision themselves wearing this piece. Overall, the final walk precisely displayed the cohesive nature of Kobi Halperin’s Spring 2024 collection. Seeing all the pieces next to each other exhibited Halperin’s “aspirational yet accessible” skill.
