New York Fashion Week provides a platform for designers to express themselves and, among other recurrent themes, a major one this season has been how they would respond to current events (if they decided to do so at all). While some designers opted to embody a more “down with the people” feel, others – by design or not, pun unintended – opted for a touch of luxury, or at least their version of...
