Like smoked salmon and cream cheese to the classic NY bagel, indigo denim and ice white cotton are the foundations behind New York City cool. Dressed up or played down-in this case the latter-they are the basic pieces that every Tommy Ton peacock no doubt has in their closet, just as every (other) bright young thing retains them too.
Trainers and baseball caps are the token additions-like lemon and black pepper to that aforementioned bagel-interchangeable with every new get up. From Agyness Deyn’s button up dress for Dr Martens to Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply’s standard denim shirt (teamed with Lacoste and WeSC, respectively), Erika wears it all with ease; ease being the primary principle behind the Big Apple’s staple uniform.
