Does New York City call to you? To some, the bright, glittering lights, never-ending bustle, and cloud-high skyscrapers are an unsurpassable wonder to behold. For creative director and founder, Kendel Neidermyer, the city represents the beauty, freedom, and liveliness of the world, and she dedicated her latest collection to its everlasting magic. Collection 4: My Love Letter to NYC from couture performance apparel brand, F.Words, is a tribute to not only the city but its traditional craftsmanship and contemporary approach to design.
With her work with luxury brands including Reem Acra and J Mendel, and her athletic history as a nationally competitive gymnast, Neidermyer created a line of couture performance apparel just for the city. Her NYC-based brand F.Words, offers up easy-to-wear athleisure with a modern color palette and sleek silhouettes that are made for today’s New Yorker. Additionally, her commitment to supporting a domestic economy and fair trade design ensures that each collection is held to both the highest quality and ethical standards. Using fabrics only available to F.Words, each garment starts and finishes with the same sewer, and is cut one at a time ensuring the best quality and design.
Blending juxtaposing concepts, the collection blurs the definition of architectural lines with feminine shapes, creating a line of luxury silhouettes that are made for the season. The color palette is contemporary yet dramatic in its use of neutrals and color with gorgeous greens, ballet pinks, and toasted oatmeal tones that feel grounded in the city. They’re fresh and beautiful but wearable with your current wardrobe for a seamless addition to your closet.
For Neidermyer, the collection is a tribute to the city, a love letter to the place that raised her and showed her the beauty of the world. In the line find comfortable tops, sleek leggings, wearable hoodies and sweatshirts, and jackets and coats that were made for NYC in the fall. Her collection showcases a luxurious sensibility, offering women a new way to dress up while dressing down, and feel comfortable while looking flawless in luxe, city-ready athleisure.
