Photographer Nick Waplington spent years documenting models during fittings at Isaac Mizrahi’s Soho fashion studio, and at night would shoot the drag queens and DJs of New York’s underground club scene. You can see more of his photos from this era in a new book, The Isaac Mizrahi Pictures: New York City 1989-1993.

Beaufille FW16

20160216_MADE_FASHION_WEEK_AW16_BEAUFILLE_MCLENNAN_108-533x80020160216_MADE_FASHION_WEEK_AW16_BEAUFILLE_MCLENNAN_158-533x800 beau1 beau2 beau3 beau4Everything about Beaufille‘s FW16 collection is enticing. From the exaggerated bell shapes to the deliberate nonchalance of the off-the-shoulder dresses, every detail is calculated and precise. If we let their more recent collections speak for themselves, I must say relocating the brand from Toronto to New York has been an overwhelmingly positive change. Their styling has grown in confidence, their designs stronger and bolder than ever before. It doesn’t exactly reinvent the wheel, but damn, do they make that wheel look pretty. Also ummm hi I want every piece of jewellery from this collection.

More after the jump.

Sure, some of them aren’t the most cycle-friendly ensembles—as a daily commuter cyclist, I have never ever been able to ride with a hat on without it getting blown off by the wind, much less a fur stole so casually, so perfectly draped over the shoulders like that. And on days when I’m wearing flare pants, they’re either pinned to keep them from getting sucked into the wheels or I don’t ride at all. Surprisingly, heels are pretty easy.

Regardless, it’s nice to see how much (or how little) stylish women choose to adjust their meticulously planned outfits to their mode of transportation. Yes, getting dressed to the nines with zero consideration for practicality has its appeal. But the modern working woman doesn’t have that luxury on most days, and many of the women photographed here are working all the way through fashion week, attending business meetings in addition to going to shows everyday. To them (and me!), functionality matters. So I’ll be matching my cream coloured single-speed to my white leather kicks as soon as the weather becomes a bit more agreeable.
