This collection reminds me of the early nineties for some reason. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s full on nostalgia happening. Anyway, this show featured sharp middle of the head parts, somber expressions, and leather jackets everywhere. The fit ranges from close to body and tailored to loose and boxy. I loved the leather moto jackets and crop top/maxi skirt sets. Other than that, I feel like I’ve been there and done that.
When I looked at the VINCE Fall 2013 collection I immediately thought, Now here’s a designer who gets me. Who understands that one of my dreams is to look like a cast extra from 2002’s Minority Report. Do you remember that movie? I love it. Everything is dark and somber and the days all have a grayish overtone. I imagine it’s like living in London.
Fall usually brings about the subdued colors and deeper, richer tones of brown, gray, burgundy, and emerald. There’s an understated luxury to the fall collections. I, for one, cannot wait for the days to get colder, nights to get crisper, and the kiddies to get the hell out of the streets. Go back to school already, you crazy whippersnappers!
It’s no secret I love a well dressed man. What’s not to love? A well fitted suit, the perfect pair of jeans, a great shawl collared sweater…it all looks good. Luckily for me, Ralph Lauren’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection checks off all of those looks and more. Prepare yourselves and gird your loins.
