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

As promised here is the next installment of the Nolcha shows I attended for NYFW SS 2017. Acid NYC a sustainable NYC made label who also showed last season were the second designers to walk at the Main show. This seasons collection was inspired by the seashore and features looks for both men and women. With their trademark color infused and eclectic garments this collection did not disappoint. I so have my eye on the orange zebra print jumpsuit. I guess I will have to be patient until resort season rolls around!

Nolcha NYFW Fall 2016 Part One—Intrepid by AO’C & ACID NYC

Fashion - alimackin@gmail.com - February 22, 2016

The polar vortex still had NY firmly in it’s grip but temperatures had risen to the balmy upper twenties when I headed out to the Nolcha shows. However, now it was snowing, of course I had to dress the ever fashionable fashionista blogger that I am

The polar vortex still had NY firmly in it’s grip but temperatures had risen to the balmy upper twenties when I headed out to the Nolcha shows. However, now it was snowing, of course I had to dress the ever fashionable fashionista blogger that I am, but I did refrain from suede boots (although I was wearing a suede dress) and chose to wear my Cole Haan knee-high studded black leather beauties instead and although they are reinforced with technology via Nike, they are not intended for increment weather, and I almost face planted on to the snow covered street stepping out of my Uber car, luckily I rallied and off I went.

I was grateful to step in to the warm dark corridors of Art Beam where the Nolcha Shows were being held and after a brief wait to sign in I was escorted to my seat where I waited along with the rest of the eager attendees for the show to begin. As I waited I scanned the crowd and people watched, and I watched one young woman take selfies with her lit up iPhone, yes she had one of those iPhone cover devices that lights up with a blast of light for the perfect selfie, first Uber, now this, what will they come with next? At one point I had to stifle a yawn, a yawn? Wait, there’s no yawing in fashion. Though there may be some passing out due to lack of sustenance. I was so busy running around from event to event and then heading home to work on the computer that I would forget to eat. No wonder everyone is so skinny in fashion—there is no time to eat. Yes it was all catching up with me, but all of that was quickly forgotten once the show started.

The event kicked off with Intrepid by AOC. With a minimalist approach and an eye on the luxury market, the collection was an effortless expression of an easy breezy take on upscale edgy pieces. Sportswear with an attitude is one way to describe this decidedly understated yet memorable lineup. From sheer button down blouses, to feather bottomed dropped waist dresses and PBX like track pants this is one collection that will translate with ease from the runway to the street.

Next up was ACID NYC, a husband and wife design duo based in Brooklyn and known for creating one of kind prints and striking structural garments. Structure, color and texture all come to mind when viewing ACID NYC pieces and the collection that walked the runway embraced these elements in a frenetic statement of deviance and innovation. You will find vividly hued prints that run the gamut from industrial to psychedelic, over-size knits in unexpected shapes, coats and bags that appear to be stapled together, technology driven fabrics and lots of body con silhouettes—the lineup for fall 2016 is a declaration of dualistic beauty and an homage to the art of the garment. And one of those bags has my name on it for sure!
