#6 Céline Fall 2014 Ready-to-Wear

It’s no secret that I love a good banana leaf, (fern leaf?) or any other tropical plant leaf. That being said, I have to give a shout out to my girl Phoebe Philo for giving a “primal spirit” to her show. The collection did not disappoint - however I’m having some trouble connecting fall knits to the jungle. Oh well… yay leaves!

#5 A Case For Dynamic Window Displays

After my internship I took a stroll through the polar vortex down Broadway in SoHo. Or maybe NoHo? Anyway, I am a complete sucker for a gorgeous window display.Mannequins run the risk of looking tacky, and do not always give the best idea of a store’s collection or theme. Forever 21, Zara, and American Eagle were perfect examples of this (see pictures 1, 2, & 3). Don’t get me wrong, I love Zara and naturally wanted to spend my life savings on everything garment. But what were the managers thinking by dressing the mannequins in black and white? Most of the Zara merchandise consisted of feminine pastels. I don’t get it. The American Eagle display is fun I guess. It reminds me of a bunch of teenagers sitting on the bleachers at a football game or something. And Forever 21’s display is….. well it just is.

But behold the magic and glory of the Kenneth Cole display window (see picture #4). Pretend those giant panels are video loops of the runway show. Just like a fashion show is meant to do, seeing the clothing moving on the models made everything much more attractive and stopped me in my tracks. Plus, I obviously gravitate towards bright lights and pretty colors like every other human. Seeing an entire collection in the display helps you to just… get it. No misinterpretations, no thinking that the store will be full of black and white while a baby pink sundress is waiting on a rack for you. Video displays give you an idea of the (in this case) Kenneth Cole girl, how the clothes look in motion, and what you can expect when walking into the store. I mean come on, it’s 2014. Can we please move past the creepy headless mannequins?

#4 Review of a Review: NY Times x Versace

Suzy Menkes of the NY Times reviewed the Versace FW ‘14 show on Friday, and I have a bone to pick. While her evaluation of the show’s military inspired silhouettes and bias cuts was spot on, there are a few details missing. For example, the pimp-tastic fur (see above), and fringe that adorned multiple coats and dresses. These are undoubtedly my favorite details of the entire show, which are true to classic Versace form. I guess Menkes was attempting to prove a point - that Donatella was experimenting was subtlety - but considering the fact that lavish fur is a huge trend for fall, it should not have been sidestepped. But then again, I’m not a NY Times journalist…

For those of you who like to cut to the chase, I’ve broken down Menkes’s review into some key categories and terms: 

  1. Silhouette: gown, bias-cut, taut jackets, pansuits, streamlined, over-the-knee boots, evening dresses
  2. Design/Details: open seams, embroidery, gilded, hardware, buttons, “V” cut, flashes of flesh
  3. Color: bright military red, blue
  4. Fabric: exotic-skin
  5. Creative jargon: simple, glamour, sweeping, slithering, “in the same way that a tabletop might show through a cutwork cloth”, military, seductive

“ You’d think it would have a little more fun,” he said of fashion. “To me, that’s the point of it. Ultimately, we need no more clothes. We could function with everything that’s on the earth right now. So you have to have this reason to want things. To me, it’s to make you happy, and to me, that’s linked to humor. ”
