Collina Strada’s New York Fashion Week shows are known for being compelling and irreverent, adapting traditional formats to convey the ethos and values of the socially conscious brand. Last season, that meant its spring 2022 debut on a rooftop farm in industrial Brooklyn. Designer Hillary Taymour takes a different approach – and medium – for fall.
Instead of a fashion show, Collina Strada hosted a premiere screening for “The Collinas,” a new series that follows Tommy Dorfman as she moves to New York City for her dream internship with the brand — only to find herself struggling with some of the less glamorous parts of the job, committing sustainability faux pas in front of shocked colleagues and making a highly controversial decision that will likely haunt her for years to come. (She just wants to make friends!)
Collina Strada’s favorites — Aaron Philip, Angel Prost, Indira Scott, Kimberly Drew, Molly Constable, Mannat and Sirat Kaur, among others — all make an appearance, alongside Whitney Port, Lisa Love, Cory Kennedy, Interview’s Mel Ottenberg and Vogue’s Liana Satenstein, all of whom are dressed in the fall 2022 collection. Their show has it all: one-liners, topical interviews, dramatic on-camera shots, and an original Frost Children theme song that is an hour and a half. (“Staring at the sunbeams in front of me, so bright I can see my future, no more CO2 emissions…”) Who should we call to pick this up for an entire season?
Watch “The Collinas” below, directed by Charlie Engman in collaboration with Freeka Tet.
