IndaMagazine’s basic mission relies on this basic concept: Alchemy. We look for what wil become golden in matters of music and design. And such as alchemy, design needs many things such as time, practice, and the mastering of a certain technique. In Fashion Week season, there are many proposals. Almost too many. But we decided to talk about those whose technique, physical and intellectual quality made them our golden treasures for Spring Summer 2015.
We all know New York is the center of the fashion industry in America. The birthplace of the ready to wear concept and of course, her proud sons, including Ralph Lauren and Michael Kors, amongst others.
But we get to see a couple of collections that caught our eye and made us forget about the part of their reputation where they had a president who wore crocs and socks and the first place where the Normcore was detected.
These collections include Thom Browne and this awesome collection of fantastic well-made clothes in a perfect mixture of classic silhouettes and eccentric decorations, patterns and materials.
Let’s remember Proenza Schouler and Opening Ceremony, with collections that were particularly interesting. They both had a wide experimentation with fabrics, and processing techniques like laser cut or knitted leather.
And Rodarte just took us to an undersea trip. The nets and embroidery used in the collection made us wonder about mermaids, corals and some people even caught some Sofia Coppola’s ‘The Little Mermaid’ realness.
Versus and Anthony Vaccarello, a collaboration made to stay for a while. We could see the rocker spirit that has always been part of Donatella with Versace’s eccentricity. A label with the exact amount of rock. We will keep you in the loop.
“Marc Jacobs presented one of the most beautiful color palettes of the week.”
Finally, Alexander Wang presented sneakers. With promising silhouettes and excelent fabric managing, the cool kid from new york nailed it going back to his origins and doing what he knows best: cool-urban-girly-ish fashion.
And THOSE PANTS***
Erdem has been doing a fantastic job for the last couple of seasons. Clothes that showed not only great quality but also a fantastic, clever and perfectly detailed result. Take a look on the very dreamy, organic… but very British.
Christopher Kane and his homage to ropes. A collection that, like drawing, played with lines to create visual illusions, volume and different silhouettes.
Mary Katrantzou showed a particularly intelligent and conceptual collection. The Pangea and the years of catastrophic change on our planet were Katrantzou‘s inspiration for this season. Geometric cracked-like tops and fantastic creatures were shown in this perfectly crafted and well thought work for next spring.
Leaving Burberry’sodd contradiction speech aside, let’s remember this season’s colorful palette and the joyful dresses inspired by Matisse’s paintings.
“Youth and longevity is what we can say about this Fashion Week Season. We hope for more gold and transcending designs.”
