The Michael Bastian show, held at a Midtown art gallery space, had a moment
of diversion. A royal appearance! About halfway through, a model walked out who
didn’t look like the others — older, different — and he was greeted with shouts
and applause, the only time I heard that all week. I learned that he was Scott
Barnhill, a supermodel of the 1990s, and by fashion standards a veteran.
Obviously, for his longtime fans, he still rules. And since I was by that time
feeling the impact of Fashion Week’s wall of newness, that was nice to see. ~HOLLAND COTTER FOR NY TIMES STYLE
