Lady Enyce  NY Fashion Week Fall 2002

Fashion Ledge - Lady Enyce

“New York State of Mind”
Lady Enyce fall 2002 collection

On March 19, 2002…. vintage memories of New York inspired the Fall collection from Lady Enyce as Creative Director Lisa Miyakado uses funky tie-dyed fleece, velvet denim, corduroy and plush velour to bring her vision to life.
“ENYCE is not just our company’s name,” says Miyakado. “A New York sensibility has always defined Lady Enyce and I wanted to use the attitudes of the city in autumn as the collection’s theme.” That means using a pallet of warm creams, browns, and olives, navy and rich garnets alongside the treated denims that have become a Lady Enyce staple. As always for Lady Enyce, body consciousness is key. Pant, skirt and jacket silhouettes defined by stretch denims and cords are a strong presence with the overall message being sexy, sassy and strong. A variety of fabrics bring scope to the line and contribute to each piece’s retro feel. Crisp tailored cotton military-style shirts are accented with an embroidered chest badge and a self-tie at the neck, witty recollection of aviatrix chic. Velour makes a strong showing, both in the classic Lady Enyce warm-up suit and in the completely unexpected dress with stripped ribbing at the sleeve and at the cinched waist. The velvet-topped denim jacket is sandblasted down at natural wear points to give a lush yet lived in feel!
Heeding the customer call for coordinated elements, Lady Enyce delivers them-with a twist. The dirty denim skirts and jeans can be paired with a traditional jean jacket, or with a bodice-hugging trench that sweeps mid calf. Tight jersey tees with openwork sleeves and one-shouldered tanks are made in colors that compliment the graffiti and splatter detailing on denim separates. The result is a selection of Lady Enyce pieces that can stand alone or be combined and layered to great effect. Lisa Miyakado has taken the Lady Enyce line, the brainchild of the trio men behind ENYCE, and infused it with a spirit of femininity to make it a fashion force. With style and substantive fabrics as its hallmarks, the Fall 2002 Lady Enyce collection is serving notice: it know what women want!
