Carven Spring 2014

With an array of hyacinth camouflage prints at the beginning, Carven‘s Guillaume Henry uses Bright shades, mixing them with more conservative styles and silhouettes. The outcome: Just Stunning. The collection really brings more Excitement, in a season filled with anything but brights. The styles are just fun, Beautiful, and the silhouettes make the pieces even work appropriate. Making me want nothing another than brights for Spring.

Balenciaga Spring 2014

After his remarkable debut at the House of Balenciaga last season, Alexander Wang went way beyond his homage phase today. “I wanted to bring ease into the DNA and codes of the house that I’m working with,” Wang stated. As his collection showed such Feminity and Purity, while keeping a more Relaxed and Chill vibe at the same time. Many of the pieces remind me of Modern day 17th-Century fashions, with the many ruffles, and the many Baroque inspired prints. The collection also has this such Cool and Relaxed vibe, with many of the pieces exposing the midriff, and Classy trenches and suits, with some sheer fabric, showing off a little but still very conservative. The collection, really shows off Balenciaga’s DNA with an Alexander Wang vibe to it, extremely Chic and very wearable to the average women. There is definitely something for every woman in this collection.

Gareth Pugh Spring 2014

I’ve always been very fond of Gareth Pugh‘s ways of making his designs look bold, yet so Beautiful that you just HAVE to Have every piece. Pugh took on a very Lady Gaga like inspiration, but with a more ladylike spin. Using Sparkling fabrics of snakeskin and many Silver hues, Pugh gives his collection kind of an Out of this Galaxy like feel, but very Lady Gaga. The structured silhouettes of the Gowns really give the collection a nice, Chic statement. Who isn’t obsessed with that bold eye makeup?

The trench coats paired with the Sexy leather cocktail dresses, a must have of mine now, really give the collection a more Classy, and Ladylike feel. Reminding of a Classy woman walking down the streets of New York or Paris, but in an effort to make a Chic statement. While the fur headpieces bring a more Gaga feel, the long evening gowns paired with the fur really bring such a Ladylike, very Oscar de la Renta Fall 2013 feel. A Gareth Pugh leather trench and Cocktail dress pick-me-up in February? Yes please!

Guy Laroche Spring 2014

According the Guy Laroche‘s Marcel Marongiu’s show notes, a passion for Science fiction is what drove this Spring 2014 collection. But what really makes this collection appealing is the mixture of textures and, and styles used throughout the collection. Marongiu seems to have this super feminine girl, mixed with a Sports Jock be the theme for his collection. A style, which I really admire, has been a lot throughout Fashion Week, including the memorable lace dress, paired with a blue hoodie, worn over the dress at Rebecca Taylor. But Marongiu does his a little different.

Using more slouchy silhouettes and more long and flowing skirts, Marongiu really gives the looks a more Sporty feel to feminine elements. Marongiu also mixes up the styles, while pairing a hoodie over a feminine and flowing skirt. Unlike Rebecca Taylor, Marongiu doesn’t lace, rather uses many different more Scientific inspired textures. My favorite though: the grey Flapper inspired ruffled gowns.
