|Erin Fetherston SS14|
In the middle of New York's signature crisp minimalisms, a surpring number of designers let their creativity bloom. Literally. A romantic wave turned some of the catwalks into the most bucolic gardens you cold think of. Yes, there were a lot of pretty flowers. But even if there were no flowers printed, embroidrered or attached any other way to the clothes, the bucolic gardens would still be popping splendurously before our eyes. They'd be in the nymph-like floating drappings... In the delicate sheer fabrics sensuously (un)covering the skin... In the softness of early spring colours... Well, there would be almost everywhere a little pinch of sweetness.
Alice + Olivia and (specially) Marchesa present two of the most bucolic collections for SS14. However, as I've devoted each a single post, their designs won't be feature in this little garden.
Island of Lovers
Above are some of the most romantic and ethereal dresses this "bucolic trend" brought us.
Zac Posen dazzled with the most wonderful, fit-for-goddesses, drappings. Oscar de la Renta delighted with the prettiest princesses. Anna Sui surprised with hippy chic creatures that earned their own fairytale. Even Lacoste took carried on the mood and presented sporty, yet absolutely feminine and breezy looks!
On the other hand, some of the most sporty and minimal chic designers - Michael Kors, Thakoon, Prabal Gurung, J. Mendel - translated their love for refreshing gardens to fashions perfectly fit for daywear. Modernizing the 50's and early 60's lady like silhouettes, they gave us a few looks to grab-and-wear right from the runway!
