Spring 2014 RTW at new York Fashion Week : Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein Collection and Marc Jacobs
The last collections for New York Fashion Week! For now the trends seem to go back to the 90′s but overall my usual suspects were the ones I liked the most.
This Ralph Lauren collection felt like a throwback to the previous ones. The black and white floral suits and dresses were a nice addition. When the pop of colour came threw, it was unexpected and made the collection more dynamic. The gowns in the end were phenomenal. The red cap gown is a...
Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : Reed Krakoff, Marchesa and Anna Sui
I love the modern look that this collection had. At the same time it had that feminine side with the light sheer fabrics. The panel blocking and layers made the look very interesting. I love the lime and grey dress. Also the finale black one.
The collection is flawless. There is that whimsical side to this collection with that gorgeous pale blue, ruffles, organza and intricate embroidery. I love...
Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : J. Mendel, Bibhu Mohapatra and Cynthia Rowley
J. Mendel’s collection had that lovely spring vibe with the intricate pattern blocking, the trellis like pattern, the lace and ofcourse, the lovely spring colours. The fishtail gowns are what impressed be the most. The coral gown with the pink piping all over is so gorgeous. The few separates in this collection are also very...
Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : Proenza Schouler, Rachel Zoe and Philosophy
I love the necklines and unique buttons in this collection, it all looks very edgy. I love that cream and black coat with the colour blocking around the waist and center. The latter half of the collection with the closed spaced sequins and glitter have a very interesting effect.
Staying true to it’s core, the Philosophy collection got the...
Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week: Oscar De La Renta, Michael Kors and Narciso Rodriguez
Oscar De La Renta
Oscar De La Renta had a well rounded collection that will certainly appeal to all his clients. There were lovely day dresses which looked timeless and smart. There were also more floral and opulent gowns and most people are buzzed about ‘how Galliano’ they are. I loved the polka dot suit with the lace trimmings. The voluminous gowns are...
Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : Sachin + Babi, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Elie Tahari
Sachin + Babi
I always love Sachin+Babi collections for how forward and wearable they are. This one is no exception. The laser cut patterns give a lovely texture to the pieces. The suede jacket and embellished ones are also very beautiful.
Marc by Marc Jacobs
Marc by Marc Jacobs, the slightly more afforable of the two lines is always a collection that’s worthy of...
Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week: Badgley Mischka, Naeem Khan and Nanette Lepore
The Badgley Mischka collection featured several trends and clothes worthy of any celebrity since most were evening wear. There were light summery dresses in lace and pastel ones with embellishment; both looking lovely. The navy gown with ruffles all the way to the bottom, the simple peach gown are some of the stunning pieces I...
Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : Vera Wang, Rodarte and Jenny Packham
It was a very athletically inclined collection. Lightness and comfort seemed top priorities and to that effect, the sheer layered dresses were right on the mark. I love the bright yellow dress.
What a shame. It’s just so ugly, tacky and distasteful. Other than a few blazers which attempt to save this collection, I find it very wasteful....
Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : Reem Acra, Tory Burch and J. Crew
As always, Reem Acra had a very glamorous collection fit for the red carpet. Apart from the metallic gowns and dresses, the simpler ones like the orange dress with the gold belt also look gorgeous.
There was a very garden party...
Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : 3.1 Phillip Lim, Donna Karan and Alice + Olivia
3.1 Phillip Lim
Inspired by geodes, this collection took the literal and embroidered it well to the silhouettes. The cross section patterns are woven really well in the fabric. This gives ‘earthy’ a new look! I love the duochrome metallic shirt as well, it has that molten crystal look that’s also very naturally...
Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : The Row, Y-3 and Vivienne Tam
The Row always portrays a city girl with a slight edge. This time the belts, cross body bags and that savannah flair do the trick. I love the different textiles used, overall the dresses have a very desert chic look.
With the difference being athleticism, Y-3 is far different from its peers but just as forceful. The collection...
Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : Ralph Rucci, Carolina Herrera and Ohne Titel
Ralph Rucci’s collection had an effortless elegance and finesse in his clothes. The collection felt younger for sure but the there was also a mature element in the fine coats and suits. The large sequin dresses definitely kept things light. I love the tops with the sheer inserts and the...
Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : Thakoon, Diane von Furstenberg and Zac Posen
Thakoon’s collection had that understated glam, that definitely came from the accessorising. The strand of pearls here and there, really elevated the look. The clothes are simple but that have that Parisian chicness to it. I like the bright pink red pleated dress though, it’s really...
Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : Lela Rose, Tracy Reese and Delpozo
Inspired by Danish architecture, Lela Rose’s collection has that modernist look with creating spaces and dimension within the garment with colours and shapes. I love the lilac dress and the satin orange floral one.
Tracy Reese had a very upbeat collection encompassing lace, checks, comfort etc....
Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : Tibi, Charlotte Ronson and Altuzarra
Conventional wisdom when it comes to summer, also known as comfortable clothes, reigned at Tibi. From fitted but airy separates, fringe and beautiful printed trousers, this collection had perhaps what you really need for spring.
Charlotte Ronson portrayed the girl everyone hopes to identify with, ‘a Parisian in New York’ as claimed by the designer. I for one,...
