You Go Gingham

Fall 2014 may be pushing plaid, but Spring 2015 will shout “tiny check please”! That’s right, gingham is not just for picnics, plucky orphan girls, or cheesy Italian restaurants.

The gingham of Spring has a sexy, swingy vibe, sans the faintest trace of that Little House on The Prairie meets Pollyanna pattern you were forced to read in Junior High.

Major designers such as Altuzarra and Diane Von Furstenberg exuded swinging 70’s with the cheeky geometric print splayed over dreamy dresses and posh twin sets.

Designers at Altuzarra told reporters that they were inspired by cult classics like Rosemary’s Baby to blend the sweetness of gingham with ultra sexy, half unbuttoned ensembles.

Oscar de la Renta NYFW

 

Unfortunately, New York Fashion Week has come to a close, but with all the beautiful designs we previewed, we’re ready to be one step ahead and prepare for fall fashion! From leather looks, to bold prints, Haute Couture gowns, ‘70s throwbacks, and everything in between, our favorite designers delivered stunning pieces with terrific runway performances, and we love it all! In particular, the variety of patterns and usage of fur from shows such as Anna Sui, Oscar de la Renta, DVF, Ralph Lauren, and Prabal Gurung were exquisite and unique, and we can’t wait to get our hands on the latest and greatest come fall. The energy in New York City was electric during Fashion Week, and fashionistas braved Nemo and hit the streets in their most fabulous cold-weather getups. We saw a complete eclectic blend of styles and trends, and the runways inspired us to start planning ahead! Which designers wowed you most?

In her Fall/Winter 2013 Runway collection, Diane von Furstenberg returned to her roots with an eclectic collection of wrap dresses and prints set to a disco beat that had the crowd convinced of her motto “Life is a party!” The collection, termed “Glam Rock” was filled with 80’s inspired bold, bright, patterns mixed with a retro vibe. Prints have been a trademark since DVF’s 1970’s launch, and the range here was impressive and yet another reminder that prints are here to stay— and I couldn’t be more excited! The collection was extremely versatile: from looks for work, to wearable outerwear and gorgeous gowns, there’s easily something for everyone in the line. The show gave off a Studio 54 feel with plenty of disco, and the excitement was contagious! While the fashion at this show was incredible, the energy in the room made it truly a fun and memorable event. With gold lamé jackets, hot pink pants, belted chiffon dresses, and fur detailing on jackets and vests, this collection will be a must-have for fall and winter!
