The Show: Jill Stuart
The Theme: Rock N’ Roll Riviera
The Color Palette: Black and White
The Collection’s Best Look: If you can imagine being a rock n’ roller’s girlfriend, jet-setting to the French Riviera wearing flirty, flouncy baby doll dresses and short leather skirts with bohemian lace tops, then you’ll feel right at home with Jill Stuart’s Spring 2014 collection. Cut outs, strong shoulders, and coy shorts were not only cheeky but also a bit psychedelic, 1960’s chic. Black and white combined with leather and lace, give way to the pretty young things enroute to the Riviera, or at the least, a fabulously warm locale.
The Theme: Iconic Surrealism Meets Savile Row Tailoring, with a Feminine Twist.
The Color Palette: Pale pastels in Lavender, Blue, and Pink
The Collection’s Best Look: Finding inspiration from iconic German artist Gehard Richter’s squeegee series of work, Misha Nonoo paired the beauty and femininity of pastel-hued ladylike skirts and knit wool tees with edgy and playful elements such as sheer lavender track pants. Much like her inspiration, Nonoo effectively and creatively combined the best of her technical skills for design with the creativity of her whimsical fabric choices.
