NYFW Designer Desires: 4 Spring Shows, 4 Pined-For Pieces
1. Nicole Miller
Whimsical romanticism meets chic sophistication with this Nicole Miller shift, featuring a shattered mirror effect on top and sequined stripes below. We thought it was the epitome of modern, young elegance. Offbeat pattern pairing made for fantastically fresh fashion, but a classically feminine silhouette and palette brought it down to earth.
2. Christian Siriano
Our next favorite look has us dreaming of a vacation in Mexico's Isla Mujeres, the place that inspired Siriano’s spring collection. The two-piece ensemble features voluminous shoulders attached to a tailored crop top, paired perfectly with a geometrically cut pencil. The woven effect of the black and beige pieces is like nothing we’ve seen of late—a unique and beautiful detail.
3. Custo Barcelona
While the spring 2014 season tends to steer away from electrifying prints and instead works the monochromatic angle, Custo Barcelona made a style statement with bright colors and exotic patterns instead. Combining blood orange, avocado green, glistening black, and fuchsia, this mini geometric romper and jacket pairing should be enough reason to start planning your May getaway.
4. Zac Posen
This metallic gray number inspired by impressionist florals and early fashion couture was a standout on Posen’s spring runway. The sleek, fitted gown came to life with a folded fabric skirt, making for a rounded, voluminous bottom. Delicately layered draping along the hips provided an intricate detail around the waist.
