NY Fashion Week inspired by faraway lands
By Look No. 4, she’s loosened up and wearing an eyelet sundress. Halfway through the spring collection, she’s wearing an embellished crocheted jacket, a knit T-shirt and fringed, crocheted raffia skirt. She has a fringed knit poncho with a hood that’s decorated with a floral applique.
Probably to the shock of her friends and family back home, this woman even wears tie-dye.
“This was an experiment in layering, an American remix,” explained Burch. “She’s layering on all the things she’s discovering. She wears an evening gown with Moroccan moccasins.”
Rachel Roy mixed smudges of blue and gray with an earthy print of birds and animal skulls in a loose one-shoulder jumpsuit and palazzo pants in an eclectic spring collection that included pops of bright coral, neon orange and ivory eyelet lace.
“For me, I do a lot of mixing and balancing,” she said Tuesday during a presentation at her Manhattan showroom. “I believe in mixing prints by taking opposites.”
A crepe racer tank in the smudged print was worn with an ivory silk trouser adorned with a cascade of purple and light brown dandelions _ and a belt offering a third design.
Roy used a wave of coral colorblocking in a more fitted sleeveless dress. She paired a colorblocked, bright orange knit top with long sleeves in blush and a bright, white pair of loose eyelet lace shorts.
“Getting dressed in the morning, you pick a vibrant color and maybe you’ll have a vibrant mood,” she said.
Designer Sophie Theallet recently won a big knitwear award. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that she incorporates knitwear into so many of her new designs.
What was striking about the French-born designer’s Spring 2013 collection was what she did with that knitwear _ pairing brightly colored, fitted little cardigans with filmy organza skirts and dresses.
“Why not?” she said with a smile backstage at Tuesday’s show.
There were lots of pretty dresses at Theallet’s show, and many bore an unmistakable image: A dragonfly.
“The dragonfly is viewed in different ways in different cultures,” Theallet explained backstage. “Sometimes evil, sometimes spiritual. I wanted to show how the woman I am dressing can be anything at any time _ she can be what she wants. She is dressing for herself.”
