Day 2 of Fashion Week had the FashionMingle.net media team going in all directions. Melissa & Marco captured footage at Chelsea Pier for a behind-the-scenes documentary on fashion show producer Melissa d’Attilio as she produced four fashion shows this season for Tess Giberson, Rebecca Taylor, Trina Turk and Naeem Kahn. Meanwhile back at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Shalanda, Maryna, and Ashley conducting street style interviews and attending shows by Noon by Noor, Nautica, Rebecca Minkoff, Nicole Miller, Mark and Estel and a presentation of designers from Argentina. From their coverage at the The Tents, we are providing you with our take on Spring 2014 trends seen Day 2 on the runway.
COLOR – Day 2 collections followed the same trend as Day 1 with very little in the way of bright and warm colors and a strong focus on contrast pairing mixing pastels with bold hues of cool colors (think purples, greens, and blues) and black. Beige, rose and other flesh tones were popular color choices. Neon, which has been around for a few seasons as a strong color hue seems to have run it’s course.
PRINT – Stripes are still holding strong, and florals are always a popular choice for Spring. Instead of abstract prints with designs placed sporadically, prints for Spring 2014 are streamlined and concise, following exact lines and rows as seen in the Noon by Noor show. With this streamlining, prints are taking on a more geometric feel. Bold trimmings give the appearance of lines and geometric shapes, further cementing the movement to print conciseness.
FIT – Welcome back length! From Rebecca Minkoff’s shorts to Nicole Miller’s knee-length skirts, the return of modest length to the female silhouette is a refreshing change after a season of (sometimes obscenely) short bottoms from yesteryear. Designers are also moving away from the skinny pant trend, and offering more options in pant leg fits from straight-leg (Noon by Noor) to palazzo pants (Argentine Designers)
MAKEUP & HAIR– Though a bold red lip was seen on the models in the Nicole Miller show, the continuing theme of “enhancing” natural beauty was the popular choice for the designers. The models were again styled with that beach-tousled, wavy hair and crown braids.
