September Fashion Week 2014: Steven Alan
Steven Alan S/S ’15 was menswear for women at its best. Slouchy silhouettes, a palate of blue, gray, and white, and and cool kid accessories like simple leather sandals and tortoise sunglasses combined to make a classic Alan collection that was as fresh and exciting as ever.
September Fashion Week 2014: Azede Jean-Pierre
Azede Jean-Pierre found inspiration for her S/S ’15 collection in Mother Nature and the correlation between the mystical being and man-made gardens. Celebrating the sophisticated free spirit that is the AJP woman, the collection was full of intricate lace and embroidery, engineered and embellished prints, and innovative lightweight knits.
September Fashion Week 2014: Milly
Drawing inspiration from the bold conceptual art of Dan Graham and John Baldessari, Milly S/S ’15 constructs an energetic collection through luxurious, futuristic fabrics and cascading silhouettes.
Backstage was bustling with hair, makeup, styling, and photography. The beauty look was urban and sophisticated, incorporating a fresh face with a hand-tied turban on each model.
The color spectrum of the collection, grounded in black and white, features kinetic bursts of saturated color including cobalt, poppy, yellow and mint. Complex textures and layered transparency are streamlined through minimal, sculptural shapes. In a nod to Dan Graham, Smith’s set design using two-way mirrors create a provocative, immersive experience, reflecting the precise tailoring and refined draping throughout the collection.
September Fashion Week 2014: Lela Rose
Lela Rose drew from many areas to form her S/S ’15 collection. Starting with a vintage kimono she bought at auction several years ago, inspiration was also taken from the graphic work of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. What resulted was a classically ladylike collection with graphic edges and bright pops of color that rings in spring beautifully.
Backstage was bustling at Lincoln Center. From makeup touchups to shoe fittings, models were primped until the very last moment.
Bobbin made a fantastic model during the final run-through!
September Fashion Week 2014: Jonathan Simkhai
Jonathan Simkhai kicked off the party at Milk Studios on Saturday night and did not disappoint. His S/S ’15 collection was full of shirting details, pastels, menswear accents, and girly silhouettes that combined into the quintessential tomboy Simkhai look.
The beauty look included sleek hair, a defined eye, and fresh dewy skin.
Tomboy chic was the name of the game, and the models were the cool crowd.
