Area is the brainchild of Beckett Fogg and Piotrek Panszczyk who happen to be a finalist at the Vogue Fashion Fund. Their presentation of their spring collection is a delicate time travel through the 60s and 80s fashion capitals like New York and Paris. The whimsy, the levity of fashion are not lost in Area as it sports one the most creative and quirky designs of this fashion week. From peach silk track pants to croc skin signature pieces Area hits the right kind of humor with the right kind of substantive expression.
Fogg and Panszczyk are special and they know it.
