ACID NYC was the second to walk in the main show. This is their third season walking for Nolcha. Founded by Evelyn Luna and Scott Chester ACID NYC is a culmination of years of varied artistic and creative backgrounds and the coming together of two supremely talented designers. Evenlyn Luna spent 13 years on DVF’s design staff going on to become Director of DVF’s textile department and textile product manager at Victoria’s Secret.
Scott Chester an industrial designer who studied at the CCS College of Automotive Design and product design at Pratt Institute opened his own studio (ACID-Arielle Chester Industrial Design) in Brooklyn, NY to design custom furniture for New York City clients. Combing their passions for all things design and focusing on apparel, ACID NYC was born.
I had the pleasure of attending their Spring show which you can read about here. Known for creating color-infused, textural garments featuring distinctive statement making prints this season was their finest yet.
The nineties are back and defiantly so—from futuristic Matrix like prints to velour track suits and punky tank girl ensembles this is the nineties done right. Track suits are having a moment, and the offerings from ACID NYC’s latest collection should please both the relax fit crowd and those who prefer their track suits a bit more close to the body.
Another vibrantly beautiful, stand-out collection from this dynamic duo
As are capped sleeved cocktail dresses and fitted tank frocks as well as traditionally cut suit dresses. The sporty chic vibe is evident, and is expressed in a two piece jogging skirt set, printed leggings, cropped tanks and a gorgeous quilted cropped bomber jacket. And the show stopper has to be the leather vest and topaz colored “chrome” belt.
The accessories this season are also note worthy—from prism printed cross body bags and clutches to frayed denim over the knee boots to cocktail purses in a silver hexagonal like print, it is all in the details. Another vibrantly beautiful, stand-out collection from this dynamic duo. To read more about ACID NYC please visit them at Acidnyc.com
