NYFW

Everyday, Game Day

True NFL FAN STYLE at the NFL x fashion week event!

It is that time of year again, and the NFL  is in full swing. If you are as passionate about sports and fashion as I am, you know that wearing your favorite team logo is a no brainer. Launched in 2012, NFL fan style is quickly becoming a social forum with unique opportunities for fans to share their love of the game through fashion, food and accessories. It is the season of the fan where NFL fashion is the name of the game, and it couldn’t be more fun!

NFL fan style invite

I couldn’t have been more excited then to receive an invitation to NYFW Fall football and fashion event with the NFL. It was a great opportunity as a blogger to check out all the new fun fashion and gear that the NFL has rolled out for your favorite team.

NFL Fan style models

The models were set up in vignettes so that you could actually feel the football Gameday vibes. It felt authentic and real as they showcased all the different ways you can wear pieces while tailgating, homegating, running errands, and going out at night! I love how this cute model had a leopard print coat and heels, I mean what a fun way to play dress up.

NFL homegating

Steelers Glasses

When it comes to homegating and showing your fandom through home good and food, there were all kinds of fun things to check out. First of all, these models were eating all kinds of neat treats that will make any NFL party a hit. Who doesn’t love warm spiced apple cider? When it comes to your home, from a grill, to a fun toaster, you can pretty much get tons of stuff to show off your team gear. These Steeler wine glasses are on my list!

If you are feeling like some fun outdoor activity, I mean grab a corn hole set. Everyone at the event got involved and it was so much fun. Nothing wraps up an event like this without some fun behind the scenes shots. There were tons of photographers and fun people walking around. I think everyone was just as excited as me about all of the cool fashion that is coming our way this season!

Valentine’s Day with Cinq à Sept

cinq à sept sank·ah·set sæŋk’eɪ’set  n : The time between late afternoon and early evening when streets are awash in the warm glow of the vanishing sun and anything is possible

Cinq a Sept bomber
A clothing line that shares a name with one of my favorite French terms just makes me happy. When I first came across this line about a season ago, I knew I was going to continue to be drawn to it.   Cinq à Sept is easy and sophisticated, as it is playful with an allure of confidence. The collection’s modern feminine aesthetic embraces unexpected detail and shape, resulting in pieces that draw their romance and sexiness from the woman wearing them. I knew from the moment that I saw this silk bomber, it was perfect not only for NYFW, but Valentine’s Day as well.

Cinq a sept silk dress

This dress just nailed it. I am not a huge fan of ruffles when they are overwhelming, but the gorgeous detail in this silk dress was spot on. Again, it mixes sexiness and a bit of edge with that romance we all want. Paired with the bomber, the whole outfit was perfection. For date night, I will certainly be putting on a heel, but for NYFW it was perfect with my favorite Nike sneakers.

Speaking of NYFW A/W 2017, their collection was divine.

Cinq à Sept founder Jane Siskin, trusts that her customers are ready for a gutsier approach then some of the other contemporary labels.  Her m.o. is to dress them for “special moments,” not everyday drudgery—so why play it safe? With old-world interiors and the ’40s, the shoe opened with a chocolate and turquoise velvet damask coat with fur cuffs. It may not be for everyone, but the girls who love it will really love it.

NIKE X NBA All-STAR X NYFW A/W 2017

Well if I may say so myself this week is going to be really fun for all things fashion. NYFW A/W 2017 is underway, and there are no shortage of amazing collections and street styles to be seen. As athleisure takes flight, you are seeing more designers collaborating with sneaker companies for exclusive shoes that will appear on the runway and then sold as smaller collections for the brand.

Air Force 1

VLONE x Nike Air Force 1

Besides all of the New York madness, lets not forget that NBA All-Star weekend in New Orleans is on February 19th. If you are keeping up in the fashion scene, we know that these hoops players are becoming their own fashion stars, and last year the front row during the slam dunk contest was its own runway show.

Air Jordan

Air Jordan All-Star 2017

So thanks to Nike, they are releasing shoes for both events, and I have the scoop on them for you below.

Collaborations

NYFW 2017 Collaborations

Sneakers have become a staple in men’s style, and Nike is working with three different fashion brands/designers to celebrate NYFW. The collaborations include ASAP Bari’s VLONE, Comme des Garcons, and Riccardo Tisci, showcasing the Air Force 1 and two different Dunks.

 The collaborations, according to Nathan Jobe, senior director of sportswear at Nike, will bring an energy and unique retail experience to fashion week. Put directly, a big thing during Fashion Week is basketball. Nike is taking over the NBA next season, so we will begin to see new ideas and concepts. Asap Bari’s VLONE x Air Force 1 were a hit and allegedly went for $90,00 on eBay. This slightly updated shoe will release again on February 11th.

That directly leads to the release of the NBA All-Star Jordans. The Jordan Brand officially unveils its collection of sneakers for the event, and despite All-Star Weekend being relocated from Charlotte to New Orleans , the Charlotte Hornets still channels through the collection.The 2017 All-Star Collection consists of the Air Jordan 31Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 6 and uses Charlotte Hornets themed colorways.
