A Collection by Equinox, a series of seven one-of-a-kind goods that redefine luxury, conceived by the brightest minds across fashion, art, and architecture to question the status quo of what it means to live life to its utmost potential. There’s a catch, however: nothing is for sale
"COMMITMENT IS THE NEW LUXURY "
- Elizabeth Nolan, Equinox Executive Creative Director
The idea behind Commitment began with a deep knowledge of consumers’ desire to commit to experiences, then translating that concept into works of art. “Knowing the moment we are at in the world in general and the mood of the time that we’re in,” says Elizabeth Nolan, Executive Creative Director of Equinox “we felt very strongly that the brands that are really capturing the imagination and resonating are the ones telling great stories.”
To tell the right story, Nolan and her team began with one of Equinox’s guiding principles: commitment is the new luxury. “It was a way of taking that insight and really something that we are already founding upon in a very honest and real way, and leveraging that into a campaign idea”

Feb. New York Fashion
Week to Be 10-Day Affair
Men’s will move slightly to abut
the women’s shows, creating
one big dual-gender event Feb.
5 to 14.
BY JEAN E. PALMIERI FOR WWD
New York Fashion Week: Men’s will be
cozying up to its women’s counterpart in
For the event’s sixth edition, its organizer,
the Council of Fashion Designers
of America, has shifted the dates slightly
to Feb. 5 through 7. NYFW: Women’s
will directly follow, running from Feb. 8
“It’s going to be one 10-day fashion
week,” said Mark Beckham, vice president
of marketing for the CFDA. “We will have
one schedule, not two and the shows will
be marked men’s, women’s or coed.”
He said the preliminary schedule
will be released on the CFDA’s web site
in the next few days but revealed that
Raf Simons will be back to close the
men’s-specific part of the week with a
show on Feb. 7.
Beckham said other returning men’s
designers will include Hugo Boss, Joseph
Abboud, Perry Ellis, Todd Snyder and
Ovadia & Sons.
He hinted that another “big-name”
designer is about to finalize his plans to participate during the men’s shows in February.
Abboud, whose last show was the
winter of 2016 when he held an event in
a former Gothic church to celebrate his
30th anniversary, said his show will be
held on the evening of Feb. 6“ in a very interesting venue.”
“I believe you only do shows when you
have something to say,” he said, “not as an
obligation to fill space. It’s not mandatory
to do one every season and fall shows are
much richer and fuller.”

The date shift actually works better
for him since it will give him a few extra
days to complete work on his collection,
Abboud said. And being closer to the women’s
shows is also a positive, he believes.
“The problem has been getting editors to
travel in for the men’s shows, so having
them closer to women’s is a benefit.”
Although Skylight Clarkson Sq, the
former home of the shows, will not be
the central location this time, Beckham
said Cadillac House on Hudson Street in
TriBeCa along with Pier 59 and Skylight
Modern in Chelsea will be the primary
venues — particularly for smaller brands.
As reported, CFDA said in July that it
would “decentralize” the New York Fashion
Week shows and use the “City of New
York as a backdrop,” Beckham reiterated.
He said the larger brands such as Simons,
Abboud and Perry Ellis would choose
their own venues, but CFDA would help
produce the shows that will be staged at
Skylight Modern and Cadillac House.
Pier 59, which has historically hosted women’s
shows, agreed to set up two of its venues
early to add men’s shows, he said. Many
emerging designers will show at Pier
59, Beckham said, but more established
brands such as Todd Snyder will use that
space as well.
New York Men’s Day, a grouping of
emerging designer presentations from
Agentry PR, will open the men’s part of the
week, showing 12 designers in two separate
time slots at Dune Studios at 55 Water Street
on Feb. 5.
This is New York Men’s Day’s ninth season
and its roster in February will include
returning designers David Hart, Private
Policy, Krammer & Stoudt, Descendant of
Thieves, Maiden Noir, Wood House, Head
of State, Life in Perfect Disorder and Bristol.
Newcomers will include Diplomacy,
PLC and Herman by Raif Adelberg.
According to Erin Hawker, owner of
Agentry, the presenting sponsor this year
will be Creative Drive. Other sponsors will
include Project, Lab Series Skincare of Men,
Albini, Oribe and Augment + Makeup Pro.
Beckham said CFDA is finalizing its sponsors,
and Cadillac, Nordstrom and the Four
Seasons are returning.
Beckham believes that shifting the men’s
dates slightly to abut women’s will give a
boost to the men’s designers — and to the
entire calendar. “We keep finding ways to
help designers find new outlets to show
their collections,” he said, “whether that’s
showing men’s and women’s together,
showing off-schedule or even overseas —
we’re here to help them all navigate. By
having the men’s shows adjacent to women’s,
we hope we will have strong showing
for NYFW” in February.
Beckham said there are no plans, however,
to shift the dates for NYFW: Men’s
“We wouldn’t move men’s to September
[to coincide with the women’s calendar].
That wouldn’t make sense,” he said. And
in fact, the July dates are already set: July 9
to 12, he said.
