New York Fashion Week is just around the corner, are you excited? Which shows are you anticipating? As the Spring 2014 show season is fast approaching, here are some inspirations and sketches from designers showing in NYFW. This post will be updated as I get more from the designers! Love it!
Tracy Reese SS14: “Tracy Reese spring 2014 radiates sensuality, energy and optimism with an array of bold, spirited styles infused with Afro-Cuban influences to create an aesthetic full of texture and movement. Balancing fresh, feminine styles and modern sportswear, the collection is rich in detail, including leather and raffia embroideries and authentic athletic accents. Silhouettes range from crop-tops paired with full midi-skirts and cropped trousers to signature fit and flare frocks. Textile highlights include geometric laces, tribal embroideries and bonded technical knits. Prints, always a staple of Tracy Reese collections, include mixed scale gingham and window pane, tropical floral placements and tribal geometrics in a spectrum of pinks, blues, greens and ochre. Building on Afro-Cuban cultural influences, key looks such as a bold lapis and scarlet floral flyaway frock with back ruffle detail, a striped scarlet and black flyaway tee, structured crisp white trousers and fisherman-inspired sandals express the effortless style of the modern woman who is sexy, assured and contemporary.”

BCBGMAXAZRIA SS14: “We were inspired by nature and modern art. Contemporary art inspired the choice of vivid colors, while more muted tones glean inspiration from the natural beauty of the world around us.” – Lubov Azria, Chief Creative Officer
“Intersection of form and function” – Lubov Azria, Chief Creative Officer
Herve Leger by Max Azria SS14: “Different cultural and geological references inspire the collection as seen in ancient tribes and tradition.” – Lubov Azria, Chief Creative Officer
“Transform” – Lubov Azria, Chief Creative Officer
Mara Hoffman SS14: The collection is inspired by references from South America with a focus on colors of the rainbow. A vibrant palette of prints set against playful silhouettes in whimsical chiffons and lightweight jerseys, pushing this season to be the boldest and brightest from the brand.
“I call this collection “a gang of rainbow warriors”. If there were ever a gang that worshipped rainbows, this is what they would wear!” – Mara Hoffman
