Deveaux S/S 2020 New York Fashion Week Women’s
Street style photographer Tommy Ton makes moves with his second show for the brand
Scene setting: A 9am start time on a Sunday morning is not a favoured time slot on the New York Fashion Week calendar but street style photographer Tommy Ton, who also currently serves as the creative director for Deveaux, quickly made it worth showgoers’ while by setting the label’s latest collection to a live music performance of Janet Jackson’s joyful Love Will Never Do. Completed by a diverse cast of smiling, dancing models, the show quickly earned top honours amongst the crowd. Energetic catwalk performances are bringing New York’s runway’s alive, see Ralph Lauren, Tomo Koizumi and Tommy x Zendaya’s show for more moves on the catwalk.
Mood board: Fashion-wise, Deveaux’s brand of effortless style was perpetuated through loosely tailored trousers, relaxed and elongated dress silhouettes, crisp shirting with subtly stitched details and slouchy, drawstring jumpsuits that suited a myriad of sizes and ages. Presented in a neutral colour palette of cream, white, mint, navy, taupe and black, the versatile collection exuded both an appealing androgyny and sense of restraint – a memorable combination in these modern times.
Finishing touches: The ideal accompaniment to Deveaux’s pared back style came in the form of a slide version of the classic fisherman’s slipper, designed by Malone Souliers. Boasting woven panals and presented in a myriad of colours and textured leathers, this modern twist on a traditional mainstay possessed boundless appeal. The brand also debuted its very first colourful seaside print, inspired by the beachscapes of Ipanema and Miami. §
