Vera Wang Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – New York Fashion Week

The Vera Wang spring/summer 2014 collection unveiled at New York Fashion Week seemed to be a flawless play of the chiffon fabric and languid silhouettes that create a movement in the designs, making them utterly sophisticated and ladylike. If you expect breathtaking wedding dresses and evening gowns, as the brand has got us used to, this is definitely not the exact time for that! Instead, the Vera Wang spring collection was an entire story about movement, as she explained it before her show: “Artsy meets athletic. I really wanted to see the body in action.”

Flowing silhouettes, draping, chiffon, chiffon and transparent, breathing chiffon are the key details of the Vera Wang spring/summer 2014 collection. The show started with a handful of black looks with a sporty touch, including lots of crop tops, knit skirts, mesh dresses and full-length baseball jackets that were finished off with heavy peep-toe ankle platform shoes, broad black headbands and ponytails. Then, slowly the runway was filled with a blow mood with an array of cobalt blue pieces that were mixed and matched either with black or white. Here, lots of layers took the lead. She also used occasional sequins to several looks to make them pop out in the dark.
Overall, “Rothko red, Franz Kline blue, Van Gogh golden yellow” comprised the color palette of the entire Vera Wang spring/summer 2014 collection. After the dark black and blue designs, eventually Ms. Wang cast slightly brighter looks, namely a couple of yellow and very bright red dresses, flowing pants and blouses. The show was closed with long airy gowns that stuck to the main theme of the entire line.

Wholly, all the looks presented from the very beginning to the end revolved around the idea of lightness and a breezy mood. That was a very “windy” line that represented a love affair towards airy layers, colorful chiffons and spectacular lace. In all the cases, sporty style and movement were the key points of the designs. This time, the designer managed to skillfully alter the idea that her brand is about wedding and formal wear only!
