NYFW F/W 2014 Part Two

Monday we started our look back at 2014 fall and winter New York fashion week. Today is part two of our look back and four great shows! 

Christian Siriano 

Christian Siriano is one designer that I have loved right from the beginning, when he was just starting out on Project Runway. I have always loved his designs, the quality and passion that goes into each piece. This collection is no exception to this rule! 
Siriano's inspiration this year was taken from photo's of Lisa Fonssagrives-Penn (taken by both husbands, Fernand Fonssagrives and Irving Penn.)  Silhouettes were very couture inspired and had a few pieces that reminded me of My Fair Lady. Great royal colours and may I say 50 shades of grey anyone? 

Derek Lam 

This collection had an overall feeling of rich fabrications yet clean lines. Lam's inspiration behind this collection was a mix of Buddhism, Tibetan prayer flags, and Central Asia. His idea was the idea of clawing yet harmonious energy. This was a great collection that just by watching it you could see the quality of each item that came out. Great colour contrast and lovely fall colours. 

Kate Spade

Aside from having the collection styled by one of my favourite stylist Brad Goreski, this collection was great. The one thing you can always expect from Kate Spade is fun, and was loads of fun. Her inspiration were separated in to two section of the presentation which almost made it feel like two separate collections. The first you go to Tokyo with bold colour block and mod bright colours. Shanghai was all about neutrals with black and beige. Just so much fun when at times fashion week can be taken very seriously.


Marc Jacobs 

I could never say anything bad about Marc Jacobs and this collection is no exception! When asked about this season he responded " What do you do after you've trimmed everything with every bead, sequin, bow and black tassel? You come up with something that came from a very powerful place, but in a fresh and soft way rather than an aggressive way." So basically in a nut shell its awesome and thats all you need to know. When the show started you got this unique experience with having spoke word by Jessica Lang reading Happy Days are here again. Once again Marc Jacobs blew another one out of the park with this collection.
