Tickets to the Tents Day 4 & 5: DVF, Barcelona, Pamella Roland & More!

Day 4

Custo Barcelona, DVF, Joanna Mastroianni

Day 4 was crazy as ever, just like the other 3 days.  Our team went offsite to Chelsea to see Ricardo Seco’s Spring 2014 collection at Eyebeam studios. Mara and Arielle captured interviews with Joanna Mastroianni, Ricardo Seco and Melissa interviewed Jackie Fraser-Swan, the designer behind the Emerson label. Emerson was the last show of the night at 9pm and for celebration of our work, we went out on the town! Well not really, we went to the rooftop bar at INC48Hotel called The Press Lounge (How fitting for our media group), and then went for late night eats at Market Diner in Hell’s Kitchen. Needless to say it was a late night for us, but we love to give you the trends for the day…even if they are a little late :-p.

COLOR: Color seems to be popping up more and more as the days of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week pass us by.  By default Custo Barcelona’s runway had a bunch of color due to his use of very busy, colorful, graphic prints.  Joanna Mastroianni, being the master of evening gowns that she is, sent gorgeous gowns of color down the runway.

FIT:  The continuing movement away from tighter than tight garments is evident in the long A-line skirts and drop-waist dresses presented by DVF.  Both DVF and Custo Barcelona showed their love for the popular trend of the week: Crop Tops.  Custo presented a lot of Box-shaped jacket, moving away from the typical fitted trench-coats seen in the Spring.

PRINTS: Black and white prints, were the main focus of DVF’s runway, along with some graphic prints.  Joanna Mastroianni opened her show with a bunch of fun black and white patterns too! Custo’s collection was almost all prints in all kinds of designs and colors with a heavy focus on mixing prints.

FABRICSs: Custo Barcelona sent a lot of metallics down the runway bringing the shine and shimmer that we’ve been missing from Days 1-3.  Woven fabrics made an appearance on his runway like mesh.

ACCESSORIES: Visors are no longer just for tennis players! Custo Barcelona sent fun visors down the runway in the same materials as the garments. His collection of colorful, Mix-print shoes will be favored by any girl, looking to express her artistic side this Spring!  Vivienne Tam would love to see the socks and sandals trend return, as a few of her models rocked that trend from a few seasons back on the runway.

Day 5

 Pamella Roland, Falguni & Shane Peacock, Libertine, Czar by Cesar Galindo

Ladies and gentlement here is our Day 5 recap! We have made it past the halfway point! On Day 5 our team was once  again all over the city of Manhattan. We started together at Lincoln Center in the morning, but by the afternoon, Craig and Arielle were offsite at BlacMera for an interview and Shalanda headed to the Alice & Olivia presentation in the meat-packing district.  Finishing up the evening, Arielle attended the 9pm show by Libertine, back at Lincoln Center.  Throughout the day we ran into multiple celebrities from world-reknown photographer Nigel Barker to Paris Hilton!  Here’s our trend report from Day 5 of New York Fashion Week.

FIT – Just when we thought everyone was going with a looser fit, outside of  Lubov and Max Azria’s Herve Leger collections, we have discovered another runway collection by Falguni & Shane Peacock that also love to show off the curves of the female form.  Despite Falguni and Shane, the majority of collections show yesterday still featured A-line skirts, fit and flare silhouettes and asymmetrical hems.  Pamella Roland favored the high-low, asymmetrical hem for a lot of her garmets from dresses to tops. Short in the front, long in the back.

FABRIC: Sheers, Sheen, & Vinyl.  Falguni had fun placements of sheers in their collections, and Cesar Galindo played with shimmer in his dresses for his CZAR collection. Pamella Roland showcased a cape jacket that looked like it would be perfect for a rainy day!  Shiny fabrics like taffeta and lame seem to be a popular choice over the last few days, especially in the Libertine Collection.

COLOR:  The BlacMera collection showed off a beautiful array of garments in yellow and blue.  Yellow and purple are the complimentary color pairings, but Yuliana’s pairings were perfect for each other! The right shades of yellow to pair with blue.  Black and white were still popular color choices in collections that weren’t print heavy like Pamella Roland and Alice & Olivia.  Collection with tons of print were more colorful, like Libertine & Falguni & Shane Peacock.

PATTERN & PRINT: As always lots of print and mixing print on the runways, especially at Falguni & Shane  and Libertine.  Stripes and big patterned prints were used on the Pamella Roland runway.  Alice & Oliva focused on prints similar to houndstooth, etc.
