Color, color everywhere on NY Fashion Week, Day 3
Dresses like that and the “moonlight pieced T-shirt dress” looked both comfortable and delicate, but there were pieces with attitude, too, especially a series of garments made of “snake leather” (not the real thing): A dress, an apron top, a bomber jacket, a pair of pants.
There was also a digital printed army jacket, paired with a lemon yellow dress.
All in all, it was a user-friendly and accessible collection for people who want to look, well, pretty.
Raul Melgoza likes flowers, and for his latest collection the Luca Luca designer turned to a master for inspiration: The late American painter Georgia O’Keefe.
Florals were a prominent theme in Melgoza’s spring line, particularly rosettes, which he presented in prints and in embroidery, in bright colors and in black and white.
The latter combo made for a stunning gown to close out his show.
On the more casual side, a periwinkle silk wrap blazer was paired with a berry-colored silk blouse and a rosette-print pant.
Colors were bright and whimsical, such as several numbers that combined royal blue and teal _ a royal blue seersucker wrap blazer, for example, paired with a royal-and-teal striped bustier. A lime green silk crepe bustier dress managed to feel both light and sexy.
This latest collection was based less on a theme than a mood, Melgoza said backstage.
“I really wanted to emphasize sensuality and femininity, and the female figure,” he said. “So, for example, I expose the shoulders, or add some sheer inset detailing.”
Adam Lippes found inspiration in the energy of the West Chelsea neighborhood of his design studio for a collection filled with prints of large flowers and polka-dots.
He’d look at the High Line, the elevated, green pedestrian path, and see a “runway in the sky,” according to his notes.
That translated on the real runway at the Lincoln Center tents into classic tailored shapes _ think pantsuits and trench coats _ freshened up with touches of sheer, soft fabrics, and the feminine and optimistic colors of the season.
