CLIMATE CHANGE
New York: Lizzie Owens drew inspiration for the eco movements of her youth to create a technical collection meant to work in a post-climate change world. Owens went to Manitoba to ensure her translucent puffer jackets were authentic and updated climbing pants with tailored, city-ready fits. Authentic accessories like straps-on ice spikes over trekking boots and hemp jewelry added to the eco-friendly vibe of the show. — Andrew Luecke
