NYFW: FW14 Day 4

By: Laura Foster of Southern Femme

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” –Coco Chanel


The Lie Sang Bong Fall-Winter 2014 collection is a study in contrasts. Inspired by powerful photographs of volcanic eruptions, lava surging into the sea, and Yellowstone National Park’s majestic Grand Prismatic Spring, the collection is a visual dialogue between the passion of emotion and restraint of practicality. The Fall/Winter 2014 collection features molten rock reds and oceanic blues paired with neutrals. Precise tailoring provides the framework for several proprietary tech fabrics that combine two or more neutral fabrics to create unique textures. Materials include: fox fur, silk lace, cashmere and wool. Both the lava print and a modified houndstooth print are featured alone and combined, in a variety of fabrications. His collection left you awe struck with each piece. Living up to his ambitious artistic statement, I would happily welcome any of the pieces of his collection into my closet.

Kaufmanfranco FW14 collection lives in the tension that exists between opposites attracting. Created by designers Ken Kaufman and Issac Franco, their collection was minimal yet walked the fine line of raw and refine, released and restricted, virtuous and scandalous. Using Kate Moss as their muse, they said they drew from her sensual style and gave it their own spin. That meant languid dresses, both short and long, in an icy palette. The short styles were often shown under luxurious outerwear such as an ivory anorak with a fur collar and silver belt. A long black-and-white slipdress was paired with a more traditional herringbone duster coat.
