by Celina ViciosoThe Show: Nonoo
The Theme: Natural light and space
The Color Palette: Neutral hues of white, blue, black, and gray
The Signature Piece: Oversized coats, fur, and versatile dresses dominated Nonoo’s fall 2014 collection, but Misha Nonoo’s plaid constructed blazer with a white fur trim is definitely a show stopper. The tailoring of the blazer exudes professional sophistication brought to the sportswear category, while the fur trim adds a bit of originality, personality, and intensity.
The Show: Emerson By Jackie Fraser-Swan
The Theme: Shiny Austerity
The Color Palette: Black and gray with a pop of pink
The Signature Piece: Fraser-Swan’s Fall 2014 collection was composed of androgyny, edge, and femininity. The dark colors, loosely proportioned jackets, and printed sweaters were fresh, young, and cool. Each piece brought to the surface a personality of its own, but Fraser-Swan’s sequined jumpsuit was a stunner. Heavily textured and padded, this jumpsuit exudes ski slope chic. If this piece isn’t making you jump for joy at the thought of six more weeks of winter, I don’t know what will.
