While fashion trends may change from season to season, fashion collaborations aren’t going out of style anytime soon. Don’t believe us? Just look at the news of Forever 21 teaming up with PONY, Reebok collaborating with ASOS, and an L.K. Bennett x Preen capsule collection launching, all announced in only the last 24 hours. Just when we think there are no more dynamic individuals left who can pair up, we learn about yet another collaboration we didn’t think we needed but now can’t imagine living without. With New York Fashion Week being an inspiration playground for fashion creatives, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that so many designers partner up during this time on capsule collaborations, ranging from accessories to full fashion lines, that create as much buzz as everything else coming down the runways.
So while New York Fashion Week may have wrapped up, the dust surrounding some of the highlight moments hasn’t settled. Ahead, the eight best fashion collaborations that debuted on the NYFW runways. Bonus: Some of them are even available to shop now.
Nomia x Absurda
For its 10-year anniversary, the ultra-cool NYC-based womenswear label Nomia cast real women off Instagram as models to embody its ethos and brought back staples from the past decade. In addition to the sleek separates and versatile dresses, the collection included a limited-edition collaboration with Absurda, an impossibly cool South American eyewear brand, featuring two of its best-selling sunglasses styles in exclusive new lens colors meant to complement the collection.

So happy to announce our collaboration with Nomia, developing exclusive eyewear for their SS18 Presentation at New York Fashion Week, on September 6th.
Womenswear line Nomia, based in New York and designed by Brazilian-American Yara Flinn, found their perfect match with our South American soul.
“Nomia is a brand that is influenced by art and architecture, which is exemplified in their product, making this partnership a perfect fit for us. Absurda also has a synchronicity of influences: design, art, and fashion. Between the designer’s Brazilian roots, our common inspiration and an overall unique vision, Nomia seemed to be the perfect opportunity for our first U.S Collaboration.” says Rafael Rodrigues, one of four partners of the Absurda team.
Our two best selling styles in the US were reimagined and recreated with exclusive lens colors, handpicked to compliment Nomia’s SS18 collection by the designer herself, Yara Flinn.
“I was drawn to work with Absurda because I felt a connection to their story and passion they put in their product. In an oversaturated eyewear market, they bring something unique and authentic to the table. My mother is from Rio de Janeiro and I love seeing more companies from South America breaking into the international market with new product and a strong philosophy. We’re very excited about this collaboration” says Yara.
Our collaboration will be revealed at Nomia’s SS18 NYFW presentation on September 6th, 2017 at Max Fish in New York City, from 8PM.

who are you before the eyes of the world?
who are we before your eyes?
i dare to say we are this absurd mix
of inspirations and passions
for the unknown, for the journey,
and if we stop to think, life is,
a great transformation movement
and our essence is to be
this constant change
that moves us, that makes us,
and propels us out
away from the comfort zone
And into the confrontation lines
of an imminent battle
between our ideas and our ideals.
and it leads us to explore ways
that break away, that disconnect,
and that reflect:
freedom is our vision of the world.
what are the mirrors printed
with your face and your experiences
other than you being part
of our identity, our dream
of our art.
what are the different cultures and stories
If not the sum of fragments that
we are the unexpected around the world
with each particle determined
to challenge the paradigms.
expand frontiers and
pioneer the real connection
between our essence
and our parallel universes.
we are, after all,
a collective of unique people.
we are ABSURDA.
creators, welcome to our odyssey.
quem é você aos olhos do mundo?
quem somos nós aos seus olhos?
ouso dizer que somos essa mistura absurda
de inspirações e paixões
pelo desconhecido, pela jornada,
e se pararmos para ver, a vida é,
um grande movimento de transformação
e a nossa essência é ser
essa mudança constante
que nos move, nos faz,
nos joga para fora
para longe da zona de conforto
para frente da linha de confronto
de uma batalha iminente
entre nossas ideias e nossos ideais.
e nos leva a explorar caminhos
que rompem, desconectam,
a liberdade é a nossa visão de mundo.
o que são os espelhos estampados
com seu rosto e suas experiências
senão você sendo parte
da nossa identidade, do nosso sonho
da nossa arte
o que são as diferentes culturas e histórias
senão a soma de fragmentos que
somos o inesperado ao redor do mundo
com cada partícula determinada
a desafiar paradigmas.
avançar fronteiras e
desbravar a real conexão
entre nossa essência
e nossos universos paralelos.
um coletivo de pessoas únicas.
Creators, welcome to our odyssey.
¿Quién sos ante los ojos del mundo?
¿quiénes somos nosotros ante tus ojos?
me atrevo a decir que somos esta mezcla absurda
de inspiraciones y pasiones
por lo desconocido, por el viaje,
por el destino.
Y si nos detenemos a pensar, la vida es, realmente,
un gran movimiento de transformación
y nuestra esencia es ser
este cambio constante
que nos mueve, que nos hace,
y nos impulsa fuera del contexto,
lejos de la zona de confort
y en las líneas de confrontación
de una batalla inminente
entre nuestras ideas y nuestros ideales.
Y nos lleva a explorar maneras
que rompen, desconectan, reinterpretan y reflejan.
La libertad es nuestra visión del mundo.
Qué son los espejos con la impresión
de tu cara y tus experiencias
si no una parte de nuestra identidad,
de nuestro sueño, de nuestro arte.
Cuáles son las diferentes culturas e historias
si no la suma de fragmentos que
somos lo inesperado en todo el mundo
con cada partícula destinada
a desafiar los paradigmas.
ampliar las fronteras y
ser pioneros de la conexión real
entre nuestra esencia
y nuestros universos paralelos.
somos, al final,
un colectivo de personas únicas.
Creadores: bienvenidos a nuestra odisea.
Miami arrived on the art scene in 2002 when Art Basel, the world’s premier contemporary art fair decided to expand its venue. Miami was then selected as a location that would attract North and Latin American participants. By then, contemporary art found a home, and soon after, so did street art: Wynwood Art District
Once a neighborhood of empty warehouses, Wynwood is now known for its colorful murals. Every weekend, thousands of people flock to the area to enjoy the gallery exhibits, street musicians, and Miami’s famous food trucks.

A bridge can be a simple bridge or a source of colors and shapes. Everything will depend on the eyes of the beholder. Photographer Mon Zamora chose the second option when making those unique clicks from the Williamsburg Bridge in New York. It binds in that composition.

Direct from our beloved tierra, a street artist (and architect) who embellishes the walls of the world with flowers: Francisco Diaz, but can call it Pastel.
Diaz has painted murals in Mexico, Portugal, Italy, Australia, Spain and the USA.
Far from conventional architecture, I understand working on the street as an urban acupuncture. Modern cities are filled with “non-places” because of irregular and non-inclusive planning. So these paintings work to rescue the local identity (…)
I try to base my work on experiences. (…) I try to understand the conditions that the environment imposes and not arrive with an already ready concept about that space. Work with symbolism, with arrowheads and flowers. My plays start a dialogue about the nature of the man and his surroundings.
From a very young age the photographer Manuel Pitta, better known as Sejkko, lives flying around the world.
In an eternal air bridge between Venezuela and Portugal, Sejkko began, as a teenager, to search the houses he found along the way. The ones chosen are always those with the vibration of the place where he grew up.
These records have profoundly influenced his work, in which there is a mixture of nostalgia, magical realism, minimalism, and an obsession with geometry and patterns.

Jumping from one continent to another, the Australian Guido Van Helten was at the end of October in Eastern Europe, where he painted a giant mural on the walls of Kiev, Ukraine.
Faced with the intense cold, the street artist took a few days to create this realistic portrait of a young woman wearing a print jacket typical of that region of the world.
We have one word to define this work: Awesome!
