Did Fashion Week Expectation Meet Reality?

Sep 13 2014 - 4:30am

We didn't have to look into our fashion crystal balls to know what we could expect on the runways of New York Fashion Week. With just days to go, we rounded up the sketches of some of our favorite homegrown labels, including Monique Lhuillier [1], Jason Wu [2], Rebecca Taylor [3], and Nonoo, and predicted things to come from the Spring 2015 collections. Based on what we saw, we predicted it'd be a long wait until the weather warms again — and were we ever right.

Monique Lhuillier

“My Spring 2015 collection is inspired by the first few moments of sunrise, the instant right before the sun rises and paints the sky with luminous shades of pastels. This beauty of nature shaped my color palette and fabric selection for this season.” — Monique Lhuillier

Nonoo

"I was inspired by the melding of opposing forces as demonstrated in Dustin Yellin's three-dimensional Psychogeographies." — Misha Nonoo

Rebecca Minkoff

"Rebecca Minkoff's Spring 2015 collection looks to iconic photographer Deborah Turbeville, who inimitably captured the '70s boho chic era in fashion. Combining the free-spirited mood of that time with the ethereal grace of Turbeville's subjects, the collection celebrates modern femininity." — Rebecca Minkoff

L.A.M.B.

"L.A.M.B. Spring 2015 is a distinctive mash-up of soft pastels, warm blush tones, and fierce black and white graphic patterns featured in our 'New Nomad' collection." — Gwen Stefani [4]

Elie Tahari

"Future bohemian." — Elie Tahari [5]

Mara Hoffman

"This collection is my reminder to self to be light." — Mara Hoffman

Yigal Azrouël

"Reconstructed vibrations." — Yigal [6] Azrouël

Rebecca Taylor

"[This collection] imagines The Rolling Stones traveling to India and the dreamy ideal an Indian pilgrimage conjures, with a bit of a rock-and-roll edge." — Rebecca Taylor

Jason Wu

"Beauty." — Jason Wu

Nicole Miller

"While designing my Spring 2015 collection, I found myself referencing the art and culture of Brazil – who wouldn’t be inspired by the decadent carnaval costumes and rich history surrounding the celebration? The collection evokes the vibrancy and movement of the country." — Nicole Miller

Betsey Johnson

"From Soho to Boho, Startlet to Hartlet and Hip to Hop, Betsey Johnson [7]'s latest promises to bring something special for every girl." — Betsey Johnson

Dennis Basso

"The collection represents the glamour of the '60s on the Italian and French Riviera." — Dennis Basso

BCBG Max Azria

"Sun-bleached prints, earthy textures, and soft pastel shades create a chromatic experience." — Lubov Azria, chief creative officer of BCBG Max Azria Group

Tadashi Shoji

"The wealth and artistry of Venice." — Tadashi Shoji

Yoana Baraschi

"African sunsets and the bold mix of colors, the aesthetic of the African continent." — Yoana Baraschi

Pamella Roland

"The fusion of Japanese design and landscape as seen in the gardens of Kyoto." — Pamella Roland

Perry Ellis

"The collection plays with the duality of sportswear fabrics in active silhouettes and performance fabrics in tailored silhouettes." — Michael Maccari, creative director of Perry Ellis

Katie Gallagher

"Spring 2015 is titled Fantasm, the original spelling of the modern-day word phantasm, which describes something that exists in perception only." — Katie Gallagher

Degen

"Your brain is God." — Timothy Leary

Tse

"Shubuck." — Tina Lutz, creative director of Tse
