The first look said it all, a matelassé buoyant full midi skirt and cropped blouse in waffled pale pink silk. I pretty sure that captures a few spring 2014 trends all in one look.
I like that the jacket hit at the waistline which is defined with the broad waistband, this would look boxy if it were longer but its just right.
This coat reminds me of those old hollywood evening swing coats and I can see it worn with denim. I was wondering how the dress looks looked and then I saw...
this next look, which appears to be the short sleeve version of the one above. The hemline is beautiful. It looks like the dress is lined with the outer fabric also.
This duo was interesting to me, I wouldn't have thought to pair up this style skirt with this voluminous trapeze top but the slimming silhouette is just what this top needs.
I call this, mature stripes. Its a very interesting take on the faux wrap dress. I like the neckline, a high V neckline is not something you see all the time.
The billowing silk dress was also a theme in her collection. I love the effect of air whipping the fabric up as the model walked but I'm still on the fence about wearing a dress with this much volume on my body type. Its very glamourous though and I think it would be a great summer statement dress on the right frame.
At first, I was trying to figure out how the hemline of this dress was made because it looked like the classic mermaid dress but then I thought, how can the model walk in something so constricted.
There is a little bit of smoking mirrors going on here, the flounce is attached to the side of the skirt giving the wearer more ease to work even though the front looks very narrow.
I like the piano and music bar motif. The music bar is another way to get the look of "stripes".
The biggest surprise of the show was these two dresses.
The fashion journalist who reviewed the collection for style.com remarked that it was shocking to find out that these dresses were made from DENIM.
Yes, how amazing it that, I would have never thought and I guess seeing it in person didn't make a difference either.
Once again, I like the shape of the neckline and how simple the bodice is.
This is the back, there are a lot more pleats on the back skirt to give the dress this full effect.
I like the "racerback" neckline and the tulle peeking through under the skirt. Which reminds me of some of the wrap dresses featured in the Spring 2014 DVF collection.
