Reformation has teamed up with 4th & Bleeker to create the perfect NYE collection, which graciously waves goodbye to 2015 and eclectically celebrates the arrival of 2016. “Same you, different dress – The NYE Collection is here.” That’s the concept behind the Reformation x 4th & Bleeker NYE 2015 collection, which features an incredible array of Reformation’s famous sustainable and manufactured items spiced up with Alexandra Spencer’s attention to details and keen eye for trends and fashion. As a result, we get a combination of elements that, when mixed together, make it possible to create cool party looks that are just meant for everybody.
The news that Reformation was teaming up with 4th & Bleeker was confirmed not that while ago, and Reformation’s CEO and founder Yael Aflalo couldn’t be happier with the decision. “If Reformation was to wake up and look in the mirror, it would probably look like 4th & Bleeker,” she recently stated.
Behind 4th & Bleeker is an Australian (now New York-based) stylist, model, photographer and blogger, whose career is basically that any girl would covet. She is mainly renowned for often mixing high and low fashion pieces, creating outfits that somehow manage to embrace both a low-key profile and an edgy attitude. And that’s also how we could describe Reformation’s NYE 2015 collection: a fusion of streestyle pieces with more conventionally elegant outfits, which will make anyone stand out from the crowd, whether one wants to opt for a jaw-dropping long evening dress or a pair of high-waist jeans combined with a curve-hugging bodysuit.
With most of the pieces exposing skin, the Reformation 4th & Bleeker NYE 2015 collection also features silky satin back crepe bomber jackets that could accentuate the contrasts between the feminine dresses and the bodysuits, being perfect pieces to match with any pair of jeans or pants at any time.
As for the Reformation party dresses, there are two distinctive themes available within the collection. On the one hand, we have elliptical cut-outs that strategically interrupt the dresses’ silhouettes, while on the other a great amount of plunging necklines and slits symmetrically give dynamicity to the designs. There’s, for example, the Bourbon dress made of a metallic fabric that comes in three different hues and features an uber-plunging neckline, spaghetti straps and knotted detail at the waist. There’s the Madori dress in sheer chiffon, the squared neckline of which recalls the open skirt’s cut; and there’s even the Scotch dress, one of the collection’s key pieces along with the golden Daiquiri maxi dress, with the plunging neckline perfectly paired with the open back keyhole detail and the cutout sides.
The Reformation 4th & Bleeker NYE 2015 collection also has room for some kimono-inspired pieces, such as the silky and limited edition Pollock dress with kimono sleeves, a detachable belt and a fluid wrap skirt, basically meant to celebrate femininity.
As far as the brand’s iconic bodysuits go, the collection plays with a more sensual side. Creating the Peoria bodysuit, the brand managed to give the collection a sultry urban-chic turn, thanks to Peoria’s wrap bodice with ruched side and tactic cutout neckline that will perfectly hug any curve. If you are looking for an unconventional New Year’s Eve party outfit, try combining the Peoria bodysuit (which comes in various colors) with any of Reformation’s bomber jackets and a pair of jeans: you won’t regret it!
