Cody Ross of PRIESTESS NYC characterizes his label’s aesthetic as a blend of ‘transgression kitsch and street-style.’ Part ‘80s revival, part futurism with a smattering of goth-glam, Priestess NYC incorporates urban-girl cool with a contemporary take on vintage punk. Richly textured and in a range of kinetic colors
and prints, the looks embody an off-beat sophistication
and are polished, nuanced and highly directional. A-listers and pop-icons Bjork, M.I.A.,Natalie Portman, Katy Perry, etc. have all donned the label while Cody’s clothes sell in progressive stores and boutiques around the world. Priestess NYC is totally wearable and perfectly fuses bleeding-edge with outstanding construction,
fit and finish. Price range: $100-$650.
