Here are another two collections that I spotted at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York. As you may already recognise 3.1 Phillip Lim, there is also a novices that I have not seen before, Joie.
Read all about it after the jump!
3.1 Phillip Lim SS14 Runway
Flattering silhouethes. That´s what comes up in my head when I am looking at 3.1 Phillip Lim´s SS14 collection. White and black looks are crystal clear a good choice to be a good sellers (I´ve got eyes already on few pieces). Bloggers will be fighting with editors who will wear it better next season.
Lim´s tie-dye version of bomber jacket and tops will excite ´the jury´. On the other hand, do we really want to see tie-dye technique, especially on the bottom half?
Clear elements of nature, such as raw landscape and terrains are showing throughout the collection, as Lim explains his inspiration. Simple detaling using isnpiration ´of Mother earth´ brings up a sharp to its collection. However, how far shouldn´t he go?
Beautiful simple white jacket, elegant, but sharply defined sheer top, classic dress with a little twist. That´s why I like 3.1 Phillip Lim and always will.
Joie SS14 Runway
Alexa Chung.The first thing what does pop up is the Joie´s girl looks, don´t you think? I can definitely see Alexa Chung wearing cropped basic top and pleated skirt that is sliglty longer and covers knees. I don´t certainly know the inspiration, however, the sweet little girl that lives by the beautiful country side is very obvious.
Not only country side, the big city influence can be spotted as well. If you think of Alexa again. It cover girl, tv presenter, dj, but the only sweet girl on the inside.
There is no doubt that I do look at the simplicity of Joie´s collection, classic pieces, such a blazer, shorts and v-neck top will find its love among many customers. Who knows maybe Alexa herself is actually one of them.
