Bronze shimmering embellishments paired with black lace looked grown-up luxe. Early ’60s silhouettes dominated, with pencil skirts and cinched waists. A plain white shirt and long floor-grazing skirt embellished on the sides was a standout, ushering the grown-up feel toward sophisticated youth. The strongest fare came from the tweed numbers while a few looks, like a calf-hair skirt and a red lace print jacket with abbreviated sleeves, seemed outdated. As always, there was no shortage of glittering gowns in classic shapes. A muted eggplant shade with embellished gold shoulders balanced sultriness and sparkle especially well.
A vampy color scheme and the most luxurious looking silky separates paraded down the runway at Georgine’s Fall 2015 show. The whole affair reminded of a 1970’s disco glam a la Diana Ross with a bit of film noir demureness. But mostly disco glam.
An oh so smart and girly lineup from Lela Rose makes me want to revert into my early-20s. The cute gingham ensembles and lacey black evening dresses all had a youthful feel to them. Feathers on several pieces added a bouncy fun feel, despite being fastened to somewhat streamlined gray silhouettes. A fringe and feather trimmed black blazer can easily replace the typical staple in any girl’s closet. Speaking of fringe, a number of multicolor woven separates and dresses with fringe down the sides are bound to be successful in the sales department.
Wait a minute guys, did you see those gold-laced tights? Naeem Khan had me at his first look, but the second one sealed the deal at his Fall 2015 show. The impeccably pleasant to look at gold details shimmered against their nearly translucent counterparts before the looks moved into a less flashy and more colorful direction. A diamond pattern on several of the looked charming before giving way to Khan’s signature dazzling gowns with enough sparkle to put the most seasoned Mackie Barbie to shame.
Beautiful, languid silhouettes sashayed down the runway in dark brown and black. Zang Toi drew inspiration from the art & culture hub, Venice. Expert tailoring and the most subtle embellishments dressed up ultra-luxurious fabrics for daytime. The evening pieces were the heart of the show, however. Obscenely (yes, OBSCENELY) luxurious opera coats came not only trimmed in fur but in a shimmering bronze fabric. For the finale, he sent out a hand-beaded La Serenissima skyline.
