#NYFW Recap: @Lela_Rose

September 8, 2013


Last season, Lela Rose had one of the stand out shows with a beautiful yet dark fairy tale story told. This season, she continued to toy with some of those dark elements, but took her collection in a totally new direction, inspired by Danish industrial design and the lines of mid-century modern furniture.

The show began with geometric printed separates and most notably coats with bold contrasting shapes. The gold foil crumbles that Ted Gibson applied to models’ hair created a surprising yet magical look, as the gold flew onto the runway like fairy dust. When the second half of Lela’s collection came out, it was evident why it was chosen.

The collection played with unique sheer fabrics that rivaled even the master of that territory, Miuccia Prada. Sheer tweeds that complimented chiffon, along with wood grain lace and embroidered silk were dreamy, mimicking the gold leaf falling behind the models.

When the watercolor silk dresses appeared, it was as if this was the moment we had all been waiting for—a floral feminine frock that is Lela’s signature.

A white organza trench that paired perfectly with a light reflected blue crop shell (I hereby declare that the crop top is here to stay next season!), along with an embroidered skirt with red linear detailing was one of her most successful looks as far as separates, in addition to the acid lime colored dresses that were equally as striking. (Do I dare to declare that acid lime may be the color of spring 2014 as well?).

Of course, Lela did what Lela does best; her evening wear did not disappoint. An ivory gown with wood grain lace inserts was a wedding look that we all will remember.
