alexander wang ss 14


So it’s currently New York Fashion Week, perhaps you heard? I know, who cares right? Well you have a point, however, it’s always a good idea to keep your finger on the pulse, even if its just to decipher your come-backs and anti-fashions - who knows, you might even come across something you like. Besides, with my much anticipated first ever New York trip commencing in 25 days (not that I’m counting), it’s only responsible I brush up in the colours, silhouettes and combinations of the fashion island that is New York.
So ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to see the copies that will be infiltrating a Zara near you Spring/Summer ‘14

If last summer you got sports happy and went with that perforated leather pleated skirt and numbered jersey (shame on you), well good news is that Louise Goldin reaffirms that sports de luxe will be up for a second innings, think tennis on the moon.

Richard Chai Love announced that once again red is huge, but unlike A/W '13, it’s going to be brighty bright bright.

Wang was being Wang, meaning that the show was pretty awesome. Simple, sporty and occasionally shirted - top button done up obviously.

We’re still clinging on to those damn pastels, will they ever eff off? At leased Misha Nonoo had the decency to include some divine loose tailored jackets, ironically (or perhaps sadly seriously) layering them on varying shades of the same fondant tone.

Helmet oh Helmut (may I call you Helmut?) can you ever do wrong? Boxy silhouettes in creams, blacks, and whites, and although I’m frowning at those tummies, it’s definitely a workable look.

If there’s one trend I’m a little excited about it’s Creatures of the Wind’s top two buttoned trenches - we needed a new way to wear our trench coat, and with those bright tailored shorts we’ll be donning underneath, what better way to have them out for all to see?
