It was a smooth sailing operation backstage at Tony Cohen.
That was maybe the fullest frontrow this fashionweek at Tony Cohens show this afternoon. Young teenagers, grand old ladies, singers and editors. They enjoyed a good show.
Tony Cohen’s show was a 24/7 adventure. As the sun came up his first model came up wearing an orange shaded ensemble, including a pleated cotton maxi skirt and a leather biker jacket. After a few more looks in earthy tones, the color palette changed into nude, grey and later on black and white. Then Tony introduced a series of the brightest neon dresses, which gracefully moved at the pace of the models’ walk. After a short pause it was time for the evening wear to shine. As a full moon shined on the runway models appeared sporting glittery, asymmetrical pieces for a night out in style. Flared pants were combined with 70’s wedge shoes. Duo colored draped dresses, like we saw last season at Tony Cohen, made the models look elegant and party proof. Long evening dresses were vamped up by airy trains following the models in the air, throughout the night.
This was the fourth day of Amsterdam Fashion Week FW2012. An afternoon and evening filled with the Firestarters Talkshow, interesting shows of Custo, Tony Cohen and Gestuz. But the talk of the day was the Supertrash-show in the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam. Olcay Gulsen transformed the venue in a golden Las Vegas-space, where sailorgirls guarded the frontrow. She also launched her own perfume, Supertrash Phenomenal.

Tony Cohen’s new collection had some international allure today. Not only did the production of the show feel like some Paris fashion week show (Rick Owens?), even the designs seemed to aim more at an international market (Haider Ackermann?)
Tony’s designs were asymmetric, duocolored and formed a surprising mix of different textures. Nylon, wool, silk and fur came together in several looks.
Pointed vests and draped cardigans were tight together by leather waistbands and wintery scarves were tossed around the models’ bodies.
Some of dresses will look better on a more curvy woman, the silk pants on the other hand will look unflattering on any woman who’s larger than a size XS.
The deep colored looks (deep green, aubergine and plum) were styled off by dark ankle boots and leather & fur Laimbock gloves; simple, but strong.
It was a pleasant show to watch and we’re sure we’ll see some of these designs on Tony Cohen’s famous clientele (who sat front row this evening) very soon.

Backstage models were dressed in beautiful clothes for the Tony Cohen fashion show. Make-up looked elegant but also tough and punky and matched perfectly with the jewel-tones of the dresses.
On Sunday night designer Tony Cohen held his second show of the Amsterdam Fashion Week. This time he presented his brand new, second line named 2LOVETONYCOHEN. A more affordable line so more women can own a Tony Cohen.
The models wore colorful shades, Sacha Shoes and very feminine outfits. The first girls sported lots of nudes; frilly dresses, playful tops and elegant blouses. They looked confident as they strutted the runway, hair down (with two small braids), hands in their pockets.
The nudes slowly turned into all kinds of blue shades and even some kind of aqua print. Silk tops, charming scarfs, leather jackets, trenchcoats and T-shirts with sequins followed in red, blue and lilac.
It was a show full of great pieces. And the fact that these are now more affordable will probably make a lot of women happy.
