Angela Missoni Gets Inspired by Ornithology for Pre-Fall

Ornithology definately served as a key inspiration for Missoni‘s Pre-Fall 2014 collection, as feathers of all kinds were mixed with Missoni’s signature zig-zag print. Using lots of color, Missoni definately takes inspiration from the Peacock, as peacock feathers and the peacock print are Beautifully draped onto clothing. And fur is seen at the collar of zig-zagged trenches. While pleats are seen on your Traditonal sleeveless shift, making me think of architectural inspired lines. Giving sophisticated staples a fun twist. Overall, I’m pretty much begging for every single piece from the collection. Now who couldn’t resist a Missoni zig-zagged trench as you get ready to start your fall season next year?

Akris Pre-Fall 2014

Creative director, Albert Kriemlers always seem to look towards art and architecture for inspiration. This Pre-Fall, he went towards cinematic lines. The collection takes a more Vintage route, with the Classic berets, knee length pleated skirts, tweed, trench coats, and of course the fur. Making me think Parisian, as I look through the pictures of these fascinating pieces. And to me, this collection just screams, “So Right Now!” As the rich hues of Oxblood, Navy, and Red are coming back into play along with Vintage inspired pieces, and of course the Artsy vibe seen throughout the Spring 2014 collections. Now who would want a traditional lace dress, when you could get the same thing in a bolder, more Artsy, and more now fabric from Akris?

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.
