Fall 2014 fashion week is almost over, and what a beautiful run it has been. Some incredible collections have hit the runways, ans waves of amazing new trends are bound to hit the streets. Asymmetry, fur in unexpected places, mismatched patterns.. I’m very excited to see what the next few months hold.
BCBG Max Azria
With new age color blocking and fur in unexpected places, BCBG holds true to its wearable high fashion nature and creates a collection that is body conscious in a new way. With virtually no fitted pieces, this collection accents the woman wearing it by leaving a little to the imagination.
A mix of modern hippie, rockabilly and slightly punk styles, Charlotte Ronson’s collection is on ode to the future, inspired by years past. The sort of dark meets light feel of this collection is evident through sheer layering and black on black looks that seem new in the context of the show.
Reminiscent of Saint Laurent of seasons past, Jill Stuart was the perfect mix of structure and sex appeal. Both extremes made their appearance on the runway, from daring netted dresses that left little to the imagination, to oversize boxy coats that hit the lower calf. No matter how covered up the women were, they always looked sultry and seductive; an ode to the idea that sometimes more is less and less is more.
By pairing pieces in innovative ways, Rebecca Minkoff has created a street style collection that is attainable and lust worthy. The sort of easy breezy looks we would all love to live in, Minkoff has a penchant for effortless downtown style. Details like thick beanies and sheer paneling in unexpected places help to create a collection that is both memorable and wearable.
With a neutral color pallet and many differing aesthetics woven throughout the collection, ICB’s show is one for the insatiable woman who lives life on the edge. Whether inspired by a more structural and origami style piece, or a leather tracksuit style, there is easily something to suit everyone’s desire throughout this show. This collection weaves together interesting silhouettes and darker themes to form the perfect fashion week web; high fashion and macabre in all its glory.
