Greg Lauren Spring 2016 Collection.

greg lauren beauty_fbGreg Lauren made a statement prior to the opening of his Spring 2016 collection, “I was so excited about this idea that women are the new men,” he said backstage. “We haven’t even scratched the surface of what women are doing — in terms of leadership, arts, business. I wanted to do a show about women where every character was saying, ‘Don’t tell me what I am because I am so many different things.’”

Lauren’s opening look — a sleeveless, floor-length nylon parka with tiered layers that appeared almost reptilian in their construction, mimicking the shell of an armadillo — set the tone for his lineup: His girls were an Army of strong, artistic nomads. Deconstructed, distressed and layered suiting done in blue, olive-green and black micro pinstripes was a highlight throughout. Lauren also played with lightweight parachute nylon for the first time, using it on languid skirts and utilitarian jumpsuits.
