1940s Silohouettes Get Casual

From pure texturizing in the Spring, to Sexy cutouts with Donatella Versace, in a Versus collab, this time, JW Anderson looks towards the 1940s for inspiration. This time, Anderson gives the Classic and Elegant silhouettes of the decade, a bit more of a causal and modern feel. Perfectly wearable, then and now.

Couture Gets Cutouts at Christian Dior

As cutouts have been dominating the Spring runways at shows like: Cushnie et Ochs, Versace, Anthony Vaccarello, and Gucci; Christian Dior Creative Director, Raf Simons, decides to take the staple to his most recent Haute Couture collection, the Futuristic Way. Simons gives a Classic daytime ensemble, that I’d picture myself wearing on a Summer day for a lunch time gathering or tea or to Church, Chic and modern ruffles and circular cutouts. Along with a white floor length evening gown, draped in identical circular cutouts. Besides cutouts as key in the collection, Simons seems to incorporate another important element, which seems to go well with cutouts: structure. Strapless sheer gowns get a pointed texture. A basic, Ladylike Little Navy Dress gets circular cutouts, and then placed with jewels as embellishments, giving the collection this such fun and Chic character. And as solid hues and different textures may seem to be key, Simons incorporates a floral printed trench and scarf, here and there, for that extra dosage of floral print.
Now texture and structure may seem new to most during the Haute Couture season. Raf Simons most definately keeps us all lusting over our heels for his latest pieces. Especially since the cutouts and structure get a more Elegant and Couture like twist, similar to the contagiously obsessive JW Anderson Spring 2014 collection. This is actually not the first time that I’ve noticed Simons working his Magic with cutouts and structure; as he does so in his Pre-Fall collection released nothing but 3 days ago. Now what I think that most people want to know is what Jennifer Lawerence, muse to Simons, will be sporting at the Oscars, come February.

JW Anderson Spring 2014

image image image image image image

JW Anderson’s collection is by far one of my favorites this season! I just love how Anderson used a variety of different fabric textures from rouched to sheer to silk, and even leather. And I just love the many styles that Anderson incorporates into his collection. Like the bows, and the one shoulder tops, ruffles, and the peplum. The collection definitely has something for everybody!

One thing that Anderson does that I really like, that he shows off many different color variations in a certain style. I think it’s really nice to see a different color on a specific style from time to time.
