NYFW: Area Rolls Out "Occasionwear" For Spring 2019
On the first cool day of fashion week, designers Piotrek Panszczyk and Beckett Fogg showcase a variety of different looks for different occasions, while staying cohesive in their own aesthetic, showing that it is possible to maintain personal style in any place you are. Speaking of occasions, Fogg defined their brand specifically as one that offers "occasionwear," the kind of brand that you can check in on when you need an outfit for a sudden event. Throughout the show, it seemed like there were plenty of occasions that Area wants us to be ready for, like posting a new outfit of the day, a cross-country flight, lounging around on vacation, sudden thunderstorms, and when you want to stand out at the club.
I've wrapped it all up for you so that you know exactly where to go when you need that sudden Area outfit this spring.
The New Favorite Sandal That The Bloggers Will Go Crazy Over
In a world where anything and everything is instagram-able, no detail is left untouched. For Area, a brand with a cult following on the 'gram, making the right pair of shoes is crucial so that their audience will wear in their next outfit post.
Travel-Ready Candy Color Combinations
Color-blocking wild combinations have always kinda been Area's "thing"(like with their famous diamond tassel mules), so it makes sense that they would amp it up this spring with full outfits. I'm loving this travel-ready look that definitely will make you stand out no matter the destination.
Beach Lounge-Worthy Kelly Green
We know all about Millennial Pink, and the very current lavender, but will be the color of the spring? Between the colorful themes throughout the show, it seemed Area's biggest obsession was the always cool Kelly green. This look in particular looks perfect to wear around this spring on vacation, with some comfortable slides.
Deck Yourself Out In Rain Gear
With the drop in temperatures, and sudden arrival of rain for the NYFW showgoers, themes of rain gear couldn't come at a more perfect time. Looking forward to seeing Area's take on bright colored pieces to wear on those dull, dreary days that come in March.
Panszyczyk and Fogg cited that their muse for this collection was Libuše Niklová, a Czech artist who invented the first inflatable toys for children. Between the two-piece sets, box purses, reflective hats and neon makeup, you can see Area's expression of colorful inflatable metallics that will be the "it" thing in 2019. A look like this will be a perfect look for a theme-party or a night out at a crazy discoteca.
