Was it ironic for Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren to create an entire fall 2014 couture collection from red carpet, only to have their models strut on the crimson ceremonial rug? “It’s our idea of what the red carpet should be,” Snoeren said. The 22-look collection was sourced from synthetic, low-pile carpet from a factory in Holland, then wrapped, knotted…

Italian designer Giambattista Valli delivered what I would like to call, ‘Tupac Chic‘ for his fall 2014 namesake couture collection. Although Valli described his collection as, “a late-sixties, early-seventies kind of freedom and eccentricity,” the Eazy-E dark shades and scarf wrap resemble that of the late-great rapper. The idea was, the Valli girl stumbled out of bed into her partner’s pajamas,…

The Sonia by Sonia Rykiel fall 2014 collection was a delicious treat. A roundup of Japanese street-style fused with Rykiel’s signature flare included candy colors and pretty pastels. With a mix of tomboy elements and fuzzy materials, I would say this was one cheerful collection. It’s womenswear-meets-kidswear, if you will. Favorites include Rykiel’s striped obi belt, tri-colored scarf, and a plaid teddy…

Curtain chic, couture homewear, what is it that actually goes on at Maison Martin Margiela? The artisanal couture collection for spring 2014 was nothing less than clever, packed full of garments fashioned from furnishing fabrics that were collector’s items, curtain material, and repurposed vintage clothes. Each ensemble more extravagant than the last, meticulously made into desirable showstoppers. Surely those masks…

Inspired by theater production and set design, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli presented an impressive couture collection for Valentino this spring. The 2014 collection featured tulle ballerina dresses and colorless gowns that met the mark for both young and mature crowds. “My conversation is with all kinds of women,” said Chiuri. “I’m not just interested in dressing myself. We respect and…
