While for many of us waiting early morning for the school bus to arrive consisted of our comfiest sweats, one classmate always stood out from the rest and this year she is wearing La Pointe. As the lights dimmed and the music began the doors to the cleverly situated NYU neighborhood venue remained open while yellow school buses pulled up outside. Show goers’ heads began to turn as to their surprise one by one models filled out of the three buses. Emphasizing this season’s reflection on the idea of back to school models made their way from the bus to the runway showcasing their best “first day of school” looks.

Combining different fabrications proved to be a strong point of the collection as the looks started off with the brand’s signature feathers paired in fabrication with mesh, while fur was paired with vinyl and suede. Most definitely standing out amongst its peers was an animal print sequin making its appearance in both neon green and a mauve pink. While the brand’s signature liquid-esque jersey knit made its re-appearance in a black coloration

Capturing the various iterations of school girl aesthetics the sportier approach took place in an exploration of a feathery fringe colliding the worlds of western and athleisure in tracksuit sets. While the stereotypical tough biker crowd seemed to be re-imaged by pairing black leather shorts with fur and using highlighter orange for a biker jacket and buckle straps pants set. Of course no school wardrobe is complete without denim and for the La Pointe school girl, denim exists with a pairing of feather, fur and mesh to make one of a kind sets.

Completing the school girl look were custom backpacks in collaboration with Chris Habana emphasizing the unique nature of backpack customization traditionally seen within the school girl look.
