The Happening: Penshoppe's "New Urbanite"

It's not everyday that I get personally invited to Fashion Week shows, so there was just no way in hell I was going to miss the unveiling of Penshoppe's latest offerings last Saturday. Entitled "The New Urbanite", it showcased the reimagining of the brand with three different incarnations of casualwear - sporty, dark and brooding, and military-inspired.

I must say, Penshoppe sure has come a long way from its teeny-bopper days with the grown outfits I saw in the show. The styling was basic yet spot-on (though with some minor WTFs), and the set-up - oh, that wonderful mirror set-up - was what I visualized all fashion week shows should look like. Overall, Penshoppe put on an enjoyable show (with a French-speaking Solenn-Heusaff) that left me excited for next year's version. I hope I still get invited then!
