Richard Chai Love
Chai executed his clothing with ‘military’ precision including strict tailoring, olive green tones & fitted silhouettes. The main element of the collection was discipline, displayed in high neck jackets, double breasted blazers and slick pencil skirts, to portray a controlled sexiness throughout. The most successful moments were when Chai incorporated a jacquard check print in contrast to metallic leathers and heavy wool.
BCBG Max Azria
For BCBG Max Azria layering was key to create a soft grunge theme throughout this season’s collection including tunics, puffer jackets, fur gilets, leather leggings & slouchy sweaters. Contrasting silk chiffon, leather, fur & knits in a combination of bold & intricate prints provides a sense of urban exoticism to a New York street style. A colour palette of monochrome and tonal greys was also extended to the styling on all the models with knitted beanies.
Kenneth Cole’s return to the catwalk revealed a dark futuristic style with pleated leather, ribbed knits and double breasted coats. Playing with silhouette proportions by extending the shoulders, elongating the jackets & graduating layers of chiffon. Emphasised with severe styling of slicked back hair, metal chokers and leather harnesses to add a gothic edge to this wearable collection.
