A surprisingly sparse crowd was seated at the Skylight at Moynihan Station in New York City. The surprise on the runway that awaited them was something for the masses. Comme Tu Es, a company founded in China, specialises in innovative streetwear for clientele of all ages – literally. A runway show ensued with updated and chic urban wear modeled by an age range of models as young as five. A refreshing twist on the classic New York Fashion Week show, child models as well as industry standard models presented an exciting and energy-packed showcase of youthful prints, unique fabrics, and contemporary cuts for spring/summer 2017.
The show opened with a definite Asian-flair. Animation-style graffiti prints dominated the collection, covering everything from track suit tops to children’s jackets. Models came out paired with racer helmets bearing the company’s gorilla logo.
