Jil Sander 2014 collection


1389464604056_Jil-Sander-Fall-Winter-2014-22In 2013, jewel tones color palettes were a hit and miss. Instead, we have seen a surplus amount of leather, Baroque inspired collection, and saturated amount of street goth labels. Personally, I love all 3 of them before the trend became rapid to the masses. needless to say, its time to give it a break and appreciate the simple things in life. Jil Sander‘s 2014 fall collection exhibits those things in minimal proportions. If you’re going to be basic (rather say minimal), you must possess the finest in silhouettes and fabrics. Basic garments being constructed in the finest quality is the synonymous with Jil Sander brand. What is so special about the color palette in its subtly. Who ever thought about creating plum with a blueberry blue with Emerald green, maroon, etc. Ironically, I believe each color can act as a neutral due to its subtle intensity.

Coming out in that new wang looking like Liu Kang


1389894661667_alexander-wang-fall-winter-2014-10The upcoming fall 2014 collection for Alexander Wang appears to be very promising. Since 2008, it has not been a dull moment for the designer. Being best friends with ASAP Rocky, giving free garments in NYC, being creative director for Balenciaga, being referenced on the Yeezus album is just a few of his accolades lately. In addition, I believe this collection truly demonstrates why he’s always in popular demand. He keeps it real and dark. However, the collection decided to flirt with colors of dusty tan or reddish-brown. It also appears leather is not going to be taking a backseat in the trend department anytime soon. Overall, I love how he uses basic garments (i.e. sweatshirts and sweatpants) and create in the most luxurious way which is simply irresistible.
