She Wears the Pants

Power bottoms are nothing new in Downtown NYC. But they weren’t the only fashion tricks up designer Victoria Bartlett’s sleeves.

Violet and red color-slashed silk trousers and (faux) leather and suede cocoon-meets-bomber coats turned as many heads as Bartlett’s nude-hued inner-as-outerwear design signatures.

Runway collaborations with LD Tuttle (ankle booties and color-block wedges) and Fleabags are further reason to spend as much time in her clothes as out of them come fall.

Suffice to say: She really put it out there.
