NY Fashion Week Spring 2014 collections continue at Lincoln Center. Here are a few highlights from some of the best shows from Days 2 and 3.
Herve Leger never really plays around, but this season they’re really, really, really not playing around – if you don’t have high-octane confidence look elsewhere.
Nearly every look this season was bodycon to the max. Most silhouettes were skin-grazing with just a smidgen of movement via fluttering hems or a tail of fabric. Dresses without the hem detailing often had wide pieces of leather cinching the models waists or corset tops giving them the brand’s signature bondage flair. Other looks took a geometric turn adding a tribal (of the sexy not boho kind) feel to the collection.
Mesh, cut-outs, lace and open knits ruled Rebecca Minkoff’s boho Spring 2014 collection. Fittingly Mexico-themed, the collection came complete with Frida Kahlo-inspired hair, floral appliqué, lots of geometric cut-outs, ikat-style designs, red floral prints, a recurring bright yellow fashioned into a variety of separates and Mexican print slogan tees, making for a welcome update to Minkoff’s signature city girl style.
Talk about taking a risk – in what will likely go down as the season’s boldest move, Alexander Wang splashed his name all over his Spring 2014 collection. It was emblazoned or punched out in repeated motifs on dresses, tops, opera gloves, waistbands, leather coats and pleated skirts, but before you think tacky, the lesson in branding looked fantastic. Take note, Kanye West, who was fittingly sitting front row.
