I was really curious to see what Coach would offer up for their Fall ’14 collection. I am a huge fan of previous designer, Reed Krakoff, who was replaced by British designer Stuart Vevers last year. Thankfully Krakoff has his own eponymous line, so we can still expect to see beautiful offerings from him in the future. Vevers presented a fashionably modern take on classics for the new Coach clothing line. The coats and jackets were standouts to me, especially the red and black oversized houndstooth print, and of course, I loved the bags. (The large, fringed black cross body and tri-color satchel being amongst my favorites). Even the shearling lined wedge boots were beckoning! The collection was solid and had good movement and use of color. I am looking forward to seeing what Stuart Vevers has in store for the Coach line in the future.
What do you think? Do any of these pieces strike your fancy?
As you probably already know, New York Fashion week officially starts today. However there were a few designers that showed earlier in the week. Josie Natori, showed her collection yesterday. Josie began her career making lingerie, (beautiful lingerie I might add…) and has proven to know a little something about cut and silhouette. While viewing her line I couldn’t help but be struck by her coats! Amazing pattern, texture and silhouette all wrapped up into some fabulous looking outerwear that I would LOVE to incorporate into my wardrobe.
Do you have any patterned coats in your wardrobe?
A few beautiful gowns from the collection . . .
I can’t believe it is already Thursday. I hope you are having a fabulous one!
For their Fall 2012 line, Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra designed beautifully floaty prints on rich silks, then twisted and draped them into gorgeous dresses. They use a process called AirDye technology, in which they create fabrics with contrasting colors on either side. Jeffrey designed all the prints used in the line. I love the rich fall colors and draping of the fabrics.
So, I know that I have a rather unnatural obsession with the color gray. I don’t know why I love it, but I do. It is the perfect backdrop for vibrant pops of color, and quite often a color that I gravitate to based on my mood. Italian designer, Gabriela Colangelo, has used the color gray as a backdrop to her new Pre Fall line. Gabriela keeps her silhouettes simple and classic, with clean lines and sharp cuts. She has even managed to capitalize on the explosion of prints we are seeing in the fashion world, in a way that is moody and intriguing. Um, Love!!!
