Piece d’Anarchive Spring 2014 Collection Review

Edgy, dark, structure with an urban flair.Cool, crisp midnight blacks and stark whites emphasize the ┬ávision of this collection. Flatform sandals and converse, as well as patent boots, give an ode to Converse and Dr.Martins and tinker with the idea of low fashion inspiring high fashion. There is no lack of texture or pattern in this collection, grid-like cutouts, and stripes and checks all add detail that keeps the eyes wandering. New age style bowler hats and beanies also add a flavor of high street style to this collection. Layers of cutout skirts are thrown on and under leotards, shirts and dresses, while geometric style tee shirts and jackets are seen on almost every model, male or otherwise, There is easily a street and sport style influence and taste to this collection; high maintenance gone fussy, if you will. One of my favorite looks includes a button down black cardigan with oversize steel buttons, grid cutout inserts on the sleeves, a checkered pencil skirt over legging shorts, a black bowler inspired hat, and some platform white Converse inspired shoes worn with white socks. This collection is edgy and dark, just as seasons past were, but it has a whole new take on how it presents those tones. The grunge sort of feel is out, and urban is in. There’s no doubt about it either; this collection will be making its way onto every paved surface available.
