The Big Round Up Womenswear FW14, Part 3
This is part three of our trend-overview of season FW2014. Take a closer look at Cosmic, Warriors and With a Swirl.
(Dsquared2, Balenciaga, Gucci, Wang, Iceberg(
A touch of Barbarella spotted at Dsquared2 with a slice of lunatic glamor. Much more strict, square and bold, the sporty hybrids of Balenciaga show a playful touch of humor. Cosmic starlets in leather mini’s at Gucci. More utility at Balenciaga, ready to hunt or to enter the lab? Chunky sweaters treated with crinkly silver foil, like an astronaut’s space suit at Iceberg.
(Haider Ackermann, Rick Owens, Rick Owens, Haider Ackermann, Barbara Bui)
Brace yourself, the troups are nearing. The heroins of Haider Ackermann, show feminine and masculine symbiosis, in longer then long sumptuous slouchy suits.
Family tribes and high priestesses at Rick Owens wear sleeveless tunic dresses and ponchos in primal knit, felt and leather skins. Modern day cocooning goes elegant at Ackermann in lush jersey cap-sleeved onesies, the hit of the season. Barbara Bui shows chunky and sharp tailored jerseys.
WITH A SWIRL
(Chalayan, Dries van Noten, Christopher Kane, Roland Mouret, Just Cavalli)
Most excitement was in the added dynamics. All moving layers and slits in Hussein Chalayan’s gauzy gowns, glittering in liquid textures. Dries van Noten’s pattern mania shows psychedelic swirl with a rave quality. Christopher Kane’s organza dresses ruffle, since composed of fifty dark-trimmed leaves of the fabric. Sculptural as well as ethereal. Roland Mouret’s stiff coated tweed is animated by a swirling laser cut fringe skirt. Just Cavalli shows racy metallic collage prints, exuberant applications and skirts with an elegant swirl.
The dynamic promise of technology!
