Reed Krakoff Spring/Summer 2015 Collection – New York Fashion Week

A little more than a year ago, Reed Krakoff left Coach (he had devoted 16 years of his life to the brand!) to concentrate on creating his own fashion brand that would bear his name. Although his first results did not impress most of the fashion critics, after seeing him unveil his Reed Krakoff spring/summer 2015 collection at New York Fashion Week, we believe his endeavors haven’t gone down the drain.
The Reed Krakoff spring/summer 2015 rtw collection had lots of blue and included the most diverse patterns and textures. Blue, brown, black, beige and white were the colors Krakoff had used and they had been combined in the most miscellaneous ways. The designer had managed to achieve geometry through drapery, asymmetrical cutouts and hems of skirts and dresses. And yet there are no statutory outlined forms, most of them are pretty simple and relaxed.

The collection in general was feminine, with a touch of sportiness. “As always it’s a slight minimalist take on this kind of feminine ideal, trying to make things feminine and sensual but still have this minimalist modernity”, Krakoff commented on his new collection. As a recurring pattern, we had vertical stripes on skirts and oversized vests, the blouses and skirts were patched with geometric shapes, mainly overlapping squares. The most characteristic feature of dresses and skirts that reached below knees most of the time was asymmetry. As for dresses, we had spaghetti strap long dresses, black, blue and brown silky ones and we also had mini dresses, one of which was of particular interest to us. For this mini dress, Krakoff had combined small patches of leather with cotton, and as a result presented a very effective long sleeve mini shift dress in light orange, black and brown.
Krakoff also used snakeskin patterns to create pants and matching jackets and asymmetrical skirts that were paired with white and beige leather vests. Another thing we could not but notice about the American designer’s creations was the wide use of the lace-like fabric, which Krakoff had implemented when designing deep V-neck dresses and collared black blouses that he paired with above the mentioned snakeskin skirts. The material was also used as a bangle-looking addition to the hems of blouses paired with short asymmetrical skirts and rather long leather beige jackets.

Krakoff’s models were also sporting all sorts of accessories that made the looks even more complete and eye-catching. Short handle small (looks like these are going to be very much in trend next season, what do you think?) and bigger handbags, long necklaces with round pendants, bracelets and chunky rings adorned the looks of the models. The footwear was rather interesting as well: T strap open toe high heels added more elegance and strictness to the collection.
Reed Krakoff collections are not for everyone, we’ll give you that. But his designs are and have always been unique and unmatched. And the unique and the unmatched can’t be without fans, can it?
