Wilddarts Edit – Fall 2013 Collections NEW YORK
Sighting boxing as an inspiration for this fall collection, Alexander Wang focused foremost on outerwear this season. Fur ‘boxing glove’ mittens and oversized coats with leather and zip details were our favourites.
Brazilian designer, Alexandre Herchcovich mixed various floral prints in his fall collection. The dresses and skirts were full of volume and the prints were clashed beautifully. Florals seemed to be an interesting pick for fall but Herchcovich pulled it off beautifully.
BCBG MAX AZRIA
This season, BCBG Max Azria culminated the influences of Istanbul and the contemporary art of Phil Frost to create a very wearable (and amazingly styled) collection. Each look was beautifully layered with silk slips, heavy coats and jackets and leather pants. Very enjoyable collection, very wearable for the everyday woman.
CREATURES OF COMFORT
Exciting times for designer Jade Lai as Creatures of Comfort officially joined the ranks at NYFW this season. I really enjoyed the quilted boxy coats and printed dresses of this collection, which was inspired by late artisit Louise Bourgeois.
CUSHNIE ET OCHS
Sexayyyy! Cushnie et Ochs stunned with this gorgeous emerald cut out thigh high split dress and this amazing digital printed image of the glow of sunlight though a canopy of trees on a beautiful flowing floor length skirt.
Bohemian spirit at Derek Lam this fall season. Favourite looks being the long navy tunic with geometric detailing and fur vest; the crisp white floor length gown and the ‘poncho dress’ with fringing detail.
DKNY’s Fall collection had a sporty quality about it. Favourite looks being the colour blocking sweatshirts, dresses and coats with leather detailing. Love!
ELIZABETH AND JAMES
Elizabeth and James fall 2013 collection was filled with gorgeous coats, like the rounded shouldered coat with patent leather sleeves and the watermelon colour mohair coat. Very Celine – without the heavy price tag!
Punk prince Jeremy Scott was no disappointment at his Fall 2013 show. Favourite looks include the black and lime green grid sweater and skirt; the animal print mini skirt with double zips; the matching animal print jacket with black leather lining and the crazy eyed purple sweater! A$AP would be loving this!
Jil Stuart looked to Stella Tennant and her aristocratic friends in inspiring her Fall 2013 collection. The darkly romantic collection which included shiny coats and blazers, laser cut shorts and skirts and gorgeous textured dresses utilised the darker shades of the colour wheel including blacks, navys and a splash of white and gold. Very romantic and elegant.
The Karen Walker Fall 2013 collection was a breath of fresh air. The pallet was very light, despite the blacks and greys. Favourite looks would have to be the dusty pink wrap vest, the black striped sweater, the khaki and grey dress with sash and easy black oversized vest. Simple yet perfection.
Lacoste celebrates their 80th Anniversary this year and has come far from its classic polo shirts. Favourite looks being the emerald coat/dress with diagonal zip and the grey coat, pant combo also featuring the diagonal zip which defined the torso. Very modern and sophisticated.
