NYFW Fall 2016: Pattie Yankee at Jay Godfrey

When bold colors merge with impeccable tailoring, the clothing begs to be worn with a beauty look that is strong yet subdued. Such is the case at Jay Godfrey‘s Fall 2016 show, where long almond nails coated in a two-tone neutral design support the sleek chicness of the wares without overpowering. “Jay’s collection is based off of an Italian artist who painted earthy vignettes, like plants and woods,” says lead manicurist Pattie Yankee. “We wanted a modern twist for the nails, so we went with an inverted chevron. It has a graphic edge like the lines and cuts in Jay’s collection.” To pull from the Italian painter inspiration, she chose a palette that mimicked the earthy, muted feel of the paintings. The two hues from Yankee’s eponymous lacquer line, Earth and Putty in His Hands, couldn’t have been a more serendipitous fit. “Earth, earthy! I like it when that happens, when my polish color names coincide with the inspiration!” she laughs.  -Karie L. Frost
