They Are Wearing concertgoers the xx Hammerstein Ballroom New York

The xx can tell you, getting in the good graces of Karl Lagerfeld is a game changer. Nabbing gigs for Chanel has undoubtedly upped the ante for the broody Brit band, landing it at that sweet spot where fashion and music collide and the buzz amplifies exponentially. Fashiony fans came out in droves on Thursday and Friday nights to see the indie band at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom.


The art school crowd turned up early on Thursday, shivering while penned in behind the barricades outside, waiting patiently to get inside. “How can they do this on the coldest night of the year?” said one teeth-clattering teen, noting that the doors had still not opened 20 minutes after they were scheduled. “I can’t feel my toes.”


Concertgoers attempted to stave off the chill by bundling up in slouchy beanies, circle scarves and fingerless knit gloves. As for outré, black leather moto jackets (or, in many cases, Urban Outfitters pleather replicas), dark-hued dusters and overcoats, often with faux fur trim, were ubiquitous.


Once inside, layers were peeled off revealing grungy vintage T-shirts (or vintage revival look-alikes), Aztec print toppers, black skinny jeans or textured leggings. Footwear stayed pragmatic with either tricked-out Dr. Martens or more structured booties. Most completed the look with the hipster go-to: a red lip.
