WELCOME TO OUR NEWEST SEGMENT HERE ON VMAN.COM, IN WHICH RISING CREATIVE DYAMI ALLEN GOES INTO THE BEST DRESSING ROOMS IN NEW YORK CITY WITH NOTHING BUT AN IPHONE AND THE PEOPLE WHO BEST KNOW HOW TO TRY ON CLOTHES: MODELS.
For the first installment of "Game Change," we took Stefan Krunic (Fusion Model Management) first to VFiles (12 Mercer St.) to check out their new Dirk Bikkembergs collection. Their dressing room checks out, although it could stand to expand (hint). Next stop: Maison Martin Margiela (801 Greenwich St. #1), which not only has a spacious fitting area, it gives the illusion of even more room with that famed trompe l'oeil decor. Marni (1 Gansevoort St.) and Nike (21 Mercer St.) even have those high ceilings, which, when you're a male model, you end up really appreciating. And the clothes? Stefan tried on everything shiny, fur, leather and limited edition—but for him, that's all in a day's work.
