NYFW Fall '13: Lacoste, Mara Hoffman, and Christian Siriano.
I started the day with a morning show at Lacoste who was celebrating their 80th anniversary (how crazy is that?!). Lacoste always go for clean cuts, and this season they followed through with that but also highlighted on a futuristic take – Monochromes, teals, cocoon structures, low pony tails and leather zipped up dresses. Lacoste Artistic director, Felipe Oliviera Baptista made sure to exaggerate the pieces and add a more structured silhouette. Happy birthday Lacoste!
Mara Hoffman’s show, which took place at the Lincoln Center was attended by friends on the front row, which included Pamela Love, Cory Kennedy and Rumi Neely. The theme of the collection was Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves. Hoffman delivered a collection with colors, prints, gypset inspired pieces and embellishments, alongside the designer’s popular signature chunky knits.
This season, the Christian Siriano woman has grown up, and has added more darks and glamour into her wardrobe. Siriano was inspired by the golden age of the Russian Opera. Classic, more put together pieces were going down the runway including pencil skirts, fur accents and slim fit trousers. Funeral ensembles with black scarves were also shown within the collection. In terms of beauty, I really liked the Russian inspired bun braids by Aveda. Christian Siriano is available at Symphony Boutique in Dubai Mall.
