>> I'm actually bored of talking about the weather now. Every coversation in New York has gone something like this "How's your New York Fashion Week going? Hasn't the weather been crazy?" to which my default reply has now become "Actually, I thought it was fine." On Friday, as this supposed storm Nemo was gradually building up throughout the day, my driver (!!!shoutout to Keith - we had some downright philosophical epiphanies in the car!!!) just kept on asking "It's gonna be rough. Are you sure you want to be out here?" The rough turned out to be just fine. Yes there were flurries and yes there was a lot more snow than we'd normally get in London but in the city, it wasn't the Day After Tomorrow scenario that the weathermen were painting previously. I've personally enjoyed playing the game of how many Uniqlo Heat Tech tops can one fit inside my cavernous J.W. Anderson sweater. The answer is about four. You can do five but then you start feeling the sweats inside a heated venue. I can also verify that anything with a raised flatform that has a bit of grip on the bottom like the Prada creepers can double up as snow shoes. No, I didn't bring snow boots and people might tut tut at that. In truth, I don't have any so I thought I'd fashion some out of shoes that are structurally equipped to do some snow-trudging, as well as deal with the evil black ice. Moonspoon Saloon's surprising on-the-downlow Buffalo shoe collaboration with Topshop, step forward. I have the original Moonspoon Saloon x Buffalo specimens, which have a good six/seven inches in the platform but these Toppers version have been reduced down to a mangeable three inches. Not only were they great for pounding the snow, the water didn't wreck the print job either. Snow weather - 0. Ridiculous yet practical footwear - 1.
