ALEXANDER WANG

 The last time we heard about Alexander Wang it was when announced successor of the fashion house of Balenciaga, but now it’s time to see his creations in New York’s Fashion Week. The palette of colors that Wang played with was mainly gray and black. A safe combination but, absolutely amazing. The silhouettes consisted of oversized sweaters and swinging jackets, worn with lean skirts to the knee. Roomy coats in grey mélange fur, many of which were dark and aggressive to a degree, especially those in robust leather, but undoubtedly beautiful at the same time. The highlights of the show were the knitted hoods on models, combined with two-tone red ponytails and the gigantic fur gloves that looked like boxing mitts.

 

    

CAROLINA HERRERA

What can I say? It’s all about the Herrera thing. Classy, elegant, chic. The looks speak for themselves. This season Herrera’s influence was the heroine of the 40s. It was all about extravagant gowns and luxurious furs. Midi and long dresses with high keyhole necklines and tiny belted waists, that highlighted the graceful movement of the fluid crepe skirts. Nice blue silk charmeuse with purple fox-fur collars. Apart from gowns, furs, and floral prints, we also saw androgynous wool suits. The hair and the make-up were braid crowns and ruby red lips. Amonst the models we spotted gorgeous Cara Delevingne and our Greek top model Rosanna Georgiou, who she looked amazing in her light blue gown.
