NY Fashion Week opens with new fall trend: freedom

(Continued)

KENNETH COLE

An opening video beamed on multiple walls in a vast Chelsea basement acknowledged that much has changed in the world since Cole last showed during Fashion Week — and how important social media is to the industry.

These days, it's more important that the audience "like" something rather than love it, Cole said.

Chances of both are pretty good. His collection, dubbed "Urban Liberation," offered a lot of mixed textures, from perforated leather to cozy knits (and a few futuristic metallic touches thrown in, in a classic autumnal palette of bottle green, burgundy, black and gray.

The prints were mostly cityscapes, one printed on the back yoke of a tunic top that was a pleasant surprise when the model rounded the corner of the catwalk.
