Degen SS '16 Friendship is Magic!
The pony power was strong with DEGEN designer Lindsey and crew. Walking up the grey metal steps at the Pier 59 studio I entered a multicolored My Little Pony haven. I was definitely taken back. Like a 90's cartoon come to life with animatronic cartoon flowers designed by artist Chris Uphues, and kawaii dance pop mix (most notably my favourite Perfume's Natural Koishite) and beautiful glittery boys and girls modeling in Degen's SS '16 collection. It really was magical.

Color clashing and fabric mixing were abundant at Degen. A mix of Degen crazy knits, kitschy vinyl pieces and an array of sparkly My Little Pony eyes staring happily at me. My girlhood was definitely giddy.
Not only a collaboration of artists and brands were involved but diversity in models as well. Tall, short, black, white, androgynous were in full display. Completely fresh and in due time when people just need a smile on their face and know they have a friend out there.
