Hi everyone 😀
Today I have exciting collections to share with you in this third post dedicated to NYFW ! Hope you’ll enjoy them too 🙂
A genuine coup de coeur for a designer I didn’t know yet. That happens only a few time during Fashion Week. Tracy Reese comes from Detroit and this collection is an ode to her town. Indeed before the presentation a short movie about it was broadcast and she wanted to show how creation was moving fast there.
The very first outfit won my heart at once. I love the material and the herringbone patterns. The layering is perfect for me. The loose trousers with the matching jacket open on a bowed blouse look really cool, and they added a big cosy coat to finish the outfit. The black boots make the whole even more tomboyish.
However the collection goes more feminine after this. We have a plum oversize sweater with flounces at the bottom, with a ballerina neckline. Then enter knitwear dresses and long floral skirts. They are paired with high heels and transparent socks, giving a sexy twist. Romantic jabots ornate sheer tops, and long grey printed coats cover this delicate pieces.
The cherry on top detail is the veil. One could think wearing a item like this with such clothes is not appropriate, but I find the result gorgeous ! Tracy Reese is definitely on my fashion radar !
Remember, I first discovered this designer during Pre-Fall 2016. I love the way her creations compromises with classics and originality. For next winter, she made modern garments composed of rich materials like soft wool and velvet, highlighted by Lurex. Flared cropped trousers are paired with ankle boots. That’s a combo I adore and she totally masters it. The blazers have a nice cut. The first is more structured, while the other reminds me of a kimono with a precious fabric. It is fastened thanks to a lace-making belt, making it even more luxurious.
I am fond of the colors she has chosen. The deep burgundy hue she has picked for her knitwear and suits is truly beautiful. The coat I cannot say I am a big fan of crochet, but the skirt (there was a cape too) look amazing and super cosy ! The color range is what we want to wear for autumn. This mustard, green and red mix works well.
She sometimes put gloves and minaudières in the hands of her model to enhance the sophistication of her designs. Towards the end there was a couple of black lamé dresses, perfect for evening. Beautiful work !
I am always eager to see The Row‘s collection. For FW16 the Olsen sisters propose monochrome outfits with splendid materials. The reduced palette is composed of usual colors, like écru, beige, black, and navy blue with pops of burgundy and tan. Sleek cashmere coats reaching the ankles are worn open and look extremely fluid. Wide lapels almost act like a stole, especially on the red one. Buttons are rare so they do not interfere with the lines and textures. The cognac leather coat clearly stands out with its vibrant and gorgeous shade. The flared cut is very special, with oversize sleeves and waist emphasis.
See-through slip dresses were another major element in this presentation. They are the basis of many looks. They look very light and closely follow the frame of the models, without being tight. I love them associated with long coats, very chic. The rest of the collection includes some woolen sweaters and wide-leg trousers.
I must admit I have already been more enthusiastic about The Row. Even if they count on minimalism as their DNA (and I love that), I feel some outfits would need a little bit more character. But still, I wouldn’t say no to that burgundy coat 😉
That’s it for now ! What do you think about these shows guys ?
