DESIGNER: KATIE GALLAGHER
Goth meets tech at Katie Gallagher‘s Fall 14 runway show. Flickering candles in a once convent turned Highline Hotel, made for the perfect back drop for this moody collection. Slippery tech nylon, grey faux fur, seamed tights and wet hair were the main stays. Over sized droopy bows were the icing on the cake.
DESIGNER: SIGERSON MORRISON
Sigerson Morrison holds a special place in my shoe heart. Their shoes are creative and trendy every season with out being so overtly so that they are out of style the following. Fall 14 at Sigerson was just as on point. Calf hair in perfect repeat prints and maroon menswear inspired heels made me want to skip spring and go straight into fall!
Fun and never stuffy, Spanish brand Desigual brings smiles to the runway. I don’t know if there was a show I attended where the models had more fun and showed off so much personality. Desigual is known for their bold fun prints,and sometimes quirky design. The show was completely in keeping with their brand, and additionally showed a few stretch pieces I would love for my Fall 14 wardrobe. The textured wool over coats and colorful graphic motifs on the below dresses and top were some of my favorites. Additionally what stole my heart were the cropped gloves with gold thumbs!
Till next time! xoxo Em
Houghton, designed by Katharine Polk
There’s an excitement in the air as we wait with baited breath to see Katharine Polk’s Fall 14 collection. She has been named one of the top up-and-coming designers to watch this season, and we’re ready!
Katharine’s muse this season was icon Katharine Hepburn. I loved how she took the elegance and beauty of her super silver screen star and played it up with cinched in waists, oversized coats and serious glam. The palette was easy and effortless in shades of ivory, camel, black and charcoal. There was a sense of classic menswear translated into super chic womenswear. The voluminous sleeves, burnout fabrics, and shimmering metallic polka dots were lush and yummy.
To top it all off the models were rocking some fabulous custom fuzzy, bejeweled Birkenstocks. (note, I need a pair of those!)
The best way of describing Katharine’s collection this season, VOLUME.
