Are you ready for this? Take a deep breath because this is one collection that will blow anyone away, and by anyone I mean you. The talented Brazilian designer Alexandre Herchovitch takes us back in time this season with his Fall 2014 collection.
Served on a silver platter, Herchovitch brought Victorian glamour straight into the 21st century. Herchovitch had two different inspirations for this specific collection, undergarments and Victorian camisoles and the other, structured tailoring. The collection featured a plethora of long billowing sleeves, frilly ruffles and high neck silhouettes with lace detailing.
As the soundtrack started and the violin in the background played, the first of Herchovitch’s looks were delicate, in the color palette of nudes, beiges, and creams. Camisoles and undergarments were layered over each other, some even shrugged off the shoulders. The designer was thoughtful, adding belts to certain silhouettes to create shape and give a more feminine feel.
Seeing most of these looks in New York’s freezing temperature was surprising, but Herchovitch’s collection was for the fashionista who is not afraid to show some skin after taking her coat off. But have no fear – as the show went on and the beat of the violin grew faster, it didn’t seem as cold anymore as the more structured menswear inspired pieces took over the runway in bright fuchsias, charcoals blacks and whites.
Pictures definitely do not do this collection justice and once again Herchovitch shocked the audience with his attention to detail talents. For all you daring fashionistas out there who are willing to show some skin, take some pointers from Mr. Herchovitch – This collection is one to look out for.
