“Can’t wear skinny jeans ’cause my knots don’t fit” Was definitely the ongoing motto for Acne Studios Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Below is a link to the collection of Acne Studios Spring/Summer 2015.
The obvious is obvious! The collection is still richly portraying late trends that have been translated numerously to becoming a global language. The elements of oversized, plaid and leather are still part of the image. But, the execution gives it an Acne touch that is undeniable. Comparing it to Fall 2014, the difference minimal, it just feels warmer which is normal for the season.
Oversized remained the most obvious, from top to bottom, the pieces were maximized. When it came to colors, Acne Studios opted to earthy colors that represent Spring such as: yellow, green, brown, and burgundy. The collection remained low key compared to the previous Spring collection.
A mix of all things colorful and bold, Ricardo Seco presents his S/S 15 collection “DREAMS”. On the tenth floor of 7 World Trade Center, the designer presented a slew of classic silhouettes mixed with colorful essentials in his brand new collaboration with New Balance. The designer states that this isn’t just a collaboration with New Balance but ” with the Wixárika, an indigenous community from Mexico, who are known for their beadings.” He goes on to state that the tribe creates “each bedded piece” that they “put their dreams into their work.” A chic mix of all things fashionable and trendy, the collection was the first time the designer displayed both mens and womens wear together. A mix of all things essential, the collection featured leather jackets, jumpsuits, swimsuits, shorts, pants and a few other things. A mixture of suede, neoprene, cotton and silk were among the fabrics present and all were perfectly constructed. Many elements and inspirations could be found among the designer line. Most important were the elements of Wixárika culture, such as trippy, peyote graphics and geometric designs based on the Eye of God mixed with a very New York vibe. It will not be surprising to see the clothing fly off the shelves next year and your favorite fashionistas rocking it next year. Images by Isaac Nho
After the departure of Stefano Pilati in 2012, Hedi Slimane was appointed the Creative Director with one thing in mind, to reinvent the brand image. Along with designing a ready-to-wear line that flew off the shelves, Slimane shocked the world by changing the brand’s iconic name, Yves Saint Laurent, to the modern Saint Laurent. And this year, Slimane has once again set the fashion world ablaze with the Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 15 collection. Inspiration this year comes from the eccentric dress code of the hippies mixed with the modern silhouette of Slimane’s designs. All in all, this line is definitely something to watch out for next summer.
