New York City – PRIVATE POLICY New York seized the spotlight during this New York Fashion Week with its FW24 collection, delving into the uncharted territories opened by the quick rise of artificial intelligence (AI). Called “Wild Wild World,” this new offer blends traditional Americana and old Wild West elements with contemporary and futuristic design features. It reflects the ongoing conversation about AI and captures the inherent contradictions of the technology, embodying the tension between trepidation and excitement, the sense of lawlessness and freedom raised by the technology, and explores how AI is shaping our present and will shape the future to come.
The collection showcases unique techniques, such as raised 3D silicone textures and intricate metal ball chain bead weaving. It blends distressed textiles with softly draped fabrics and gleaming hardware to create a visual story that reflects the intricacies of the AI landscape. The runway show functioned as a metaphorical fashion tunnel, symbolizing the unknown future that lies ahead with AI while offering a glimmer of hope and opportunity.
This season, PRIVATE POLICY New York also partnered with Coca-Cola® Creations to launch a limited-edition line of apparel and accessories. The line will be available worldwide on March 29th, 2024, offering vibrant pieces infused with youthful energy and innovative creativity. – GM
