New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg didn’t take a private car or a cab to the official kick-off to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. “I just took the Fashion Line,” the mayor said. In honor of Fashion Week’s new digs at Lincoln Center, the city has officially renamed the 1-line subway the Fashion Line.
Though the politician is clearly a suit-and-tie kind of guy. Who was he wearing? Tie by Hermès, shirt by Paul Stuart, suit by Brooklyn tailor Martin Greenfield, and underwear by Bloomies. “But you could ask me any other day and get the same answer. I’m a fashion designer’s nightmare,” Bloomberg said.
