A/W 2014

Brazilian designer Alexandre Herchcovitch’s Autumn/Winter 2014 collection debuted at Milk Made studios in New York City. It featured shapes and cuts calling back to Victorian days with a splash of “Little House on The Prairie” thrown in. Doll-like ruffles, high collars, pin-tucking, pleating, embroidery, crocheting and lace were repetitive traits. The color schemes included virginal whites, creams, beiges and flesh tones set against contradictory bold blacks and a splash of vibrant red. We were enamored with the collection and loved the incorporation of the group of modern, tailored, bright red ensembles shown amidst the country, gothic and Victorian. All this was paired with the extremity of highly crimped, frizzed-out hair. Normally a look that most women avoid like the plague, it somehow worked very well with the overall aesthetic of this charming collection. Photography Alexander Thompson.
