More styles from the New York Fashion Week runways
by Sam Kidd
Bouncing to some of the best beats yet supplied by NYFW, models strutted down the catwalk bedecked in yellows and peaches from Timo Weiland’s Spring/Summer 2013 at Lincoln Center. The eighties hip-hop influence was evident in the men’s and women’s clothes, ranging from knit hoodies to collared sleeveless dresses and coral anoraks. The looks started out in monochromatic white, but slowly segued into bigger and bolder prints as well as colors. Magnified houndstooth and herringbone prints adorned pants and pencil skirts, in acid yellows and camel. Pamela Love did the jewelry for the show, crafting enlarged hexagonal hoop earrings that paired perfectly with the overall hip-hop vibe. The bedazzled and beaded evening dresses were spectacular, a rich finish to the upbeat and charming Timo Weiland show.
Much to the enjoyment of the audience, Alexandre Herchovitch’s sent models clad in his latest latest collection down the runway to Culture Club’s hits. Shirtdresses, jumpsuits, and checkerboard shirts bedecked the girls. An oversize heart motif was splashed on tops, skirts and dresses, predominately in bold, primary colors. Hunter green and shades of fuchsia were incorporated into the looks, but for the most part Herchovitch stuck to a Piet Mondrian palette of canary yellows, vivid reds, bold blues, black, and white. Exaggerated checks and plaids graced boxy tops, dresses, scarves and felt hats. As the show transformed, the geometric prints gave way to bejeweled collars and bags, adding to the playful vibe of Alexandre Herchovitch’s Spring 2013 show.
