The Tracy Reese fall 2014 collection draws inspiration from juxtapositions, playing the loud and ecstatic against the pragmatic and quietly complex to create classically modern silhouettes in commanding cloths. The collection takes an intimate look at self-expression, intermixing utility pieces with unique elements that provide pops of personality and spirit. Collection highlights include menswear inspired silhouettes, oversized embroidered sweaters, fringe detailing, gold and gunmetal beading and lamé and heathered tweet knits, anchored by a palette of playful colors that are tempered by neutral, muted tones. A metallic anorak paired with a sexy slip creates an unexpected look that is undeniably modern. Self-expression is perpetuated by collection accents in metallic leathers, ostrich trims and jeweled and feather details.

 

For the fall 2014 season, Tracy Reese partnered with Tide Pods and the CFDA’s Washable Fashion initiative, which seeks to inspire more designers to create garments using washable fabrics.

New York, NY – February 12, 2014

Mexican designer, Ricardo Seco, who is known for his no‐nonsense tailoring and sophisticated garments, presented his Fall 2014 collection as part of the official calendar, Monday, February 10 at 5pm, at The Angel Orensanz Foundation Center for the Arts during Mercedes‐Benz New York Fashion Week.

Seco made his New York debut back in 2012 when he became the only Mexican menswear designer to take part in Fashion Week. Two years later, Mexico City’s famous Rufino Tamayo Museum was the setting for his runway show and subsequently he took his collections to Colombia and Miami. This year was his fifth time showing .

The theme that Seco choose for his current creations was the Kennedy era of the 60s. “I took the A‐line silhouette that Jackie liked so much and turned it into a masculine, urban chic style that her son John‐John would have worn,” the designer explained. “The Kennedy style is an American style. A lifestyle trend that is relevant today and timeless.”

The colors chosen by this Latino designer were somewhat unusual as they would more likely appear on a Spring stage. However, Seco used Jackie’s favorite pastels in shades of baby blue, lilac and pink and combines them with wintery shades of navy, gray and New York’s staple…black.

The spirit of spring, with a touch of contemporary glam.

Christian Dior Haute Couture spring/summer 2014 collection. Inspired by a sense of freedom and mobility, both in attitude and physicality, the effortless couture produced not just a beautiful aesthetic, but a wearable one at that. Light fabrics were cut into clean, easy shapes and embroidered onto pieces into repetitive patterns. Graphics played a huge role, as well as embellishments on clothes and accessories. Vast overlays and sheer fabrics allowed the female body to be of more of a focus in a modern Dior fashion.

The couture collection consisted of tailored jumpsuits, trousers with matching upper halves, and of course outrageous dresses for the season. And, to top it all off, Dior included a side of garnished sneakers.
