Instead of having private appointments, Carolina Herrera decided to switch things up by presenting for Pre-Fall 2014 collection Cocktail Party style. The theme definately made perfect sense, as the collection showed off this Playful Spirit that’ll be sure to brighten up any festivity. A honeycomb patterned skirt gets paired with an olive sweater with black feathers on the bottom. Flowers get plastered onto your favorite evening gowns. White and Ruffles make a splash when paired with tweed. And white bumble bees get printed onto a tangerine skirt suit. Perfectly playing in with the collection’s catchphrase: “Bee Happy.”
As Dennis Basso reaches the 30th Anniversary of his label. He’s in none other than a celebratory mood, as he designs his Pre-Fall collection. Inspired by London in the 1960s, the collection takes a Vintage feel, but most definately with a Celebratory, modern twist. “Pre-fall can be uptown or it can be downtown,” the designer told WWD. “It’s all about the woman taking the pieces and making them her own.”
Getting to that point, a paisley printed top paired under a fur houndstoothShaw, gives off a “Ready to Party” vibe. While an LBD goes Edgy underneath a black crocodile skin jacket with a bedazzled collar, and thigh-high Equestrian boots underneath. And a Sparkled evening gown gets transformed into daywear, when worn underneath a fur top with black thigh-high Equestrian boots, and finished off with a Chocolate Crocodile skin handbag and black gloves. I’m just left extremely in love with the collection as a whole.
‘A Lace Garden’ is what Elie Saab titled his Spring 2014 collection, which was filled with: pastels, brights, and of course: Lace. There is this such timeless Beauty and Elegance in every Elie Saab collection, the clothing always really flattering the body of any women. As always, Saab uses an array of colors in his 58 look collection. The Red and Emerald hues and the Sparkles remind me of Saab’s Holiday inspired Haute Couture collection back in July. While the lace, white, and Peach hue remind of Springtime. But definitely don’t forget the floral printed evening gowns, giving the feel of a Rose Garden in bloom. And the Elie Saab girl continues to live in opulence.
With Kim & Kanye sitting front row, Givenchy’s show começou, with a Beautiful array of Evening gowns. Some in leather, others in a Neutral hue, and others, a Draped Dream. But what left me and everyone else speechless was the Beautiful array of Crystallized evening gowns, and those Masks???? According to Instagram, the Bedazzled faces was done by Iconic makeup artist, Pat McGrath. Which really added a suspense to the collection. What I’m begging for right now, though is that Sparkled evening gown, with those Sexy cutouts, which Julia Nobis sported. Speechless.
I’ve always been very fond of Alice Temperley‘s collections for Temperley London. And this time, Temperley definitely wowed me. The collection began with an array of Beautiful silk dresses, in dramatic shades of pink and black. Then came a Stunning array of pink and white lace and Baroque dresses. Each perfect for a tea party, work, or for Going Out.
Towards the middle of her collection, Temeperley gives her Traditonal, Ladylike dresses and Evening Gowns a Fun and Bold edge to it, adding hints of Leopard print into her white Cherry Blossomed evening Gowns. Really, the perfect Evening gown for anyone that likes to stand out.
The collection then ends with a Beautiful array of pastel, and floral printed evening gowns. In silk, Chiffon, and of course with a little bit of shimmer. The collection overal really, has such Glamour and Romance that was seen a lot throughout New York and London Fashion Week. And who wouldn’t want a Temperley London pink lace dress for their next tea?
