While Lela Rose’s Resort 2014 collection remains true to the designer’s feminine aesthetic, a thread of graphic edge runs through it. László Moholy-Nagy’s black-and-white photographs were the source inspiration for this season’s geometric pattern-work and prints. The linear motifs were carefully balanced with romantic florals, which were even occasionally worked straight into some finely appliqued details. It is precisely this mix of Rose’s feminine sensibilities with a dash of the unexpected that keeps her collections fresh.

Inspired by Edward Ruscha’s “a few palm trees’ Elle Sasson Spring 14 collection is an ode to simplistic retro mod 1970’s glam with a modern downtown girl twist. Moved by Ruscha’s portrayl of palm trees as obscure and unique objects, Elle designed a collection which transforms the vivid and colorful aesthetic of the 70’s era into a look that is slightly more urban, individual and rough around the edges.
The Elle Sasson collection uses various linen, cottons and silks in an array of colorful pan-tones such as tangerine, lipstick red and green miced with classic color stories such as black, cream, navy, white and periwinkle. She pairs playful yet intricate beading and embroideries with feminine yet edgy print work to create a contrast between her colorful patterns and her more minimalist silhouetes.
The collection gives a youthful to the classic twin sets with crop tops and min skirt ensambles as well as matching print top and bottoms sets. Over sized boy friend jackets and printed trench coats are paired with super slim skinny pants and knitter tops with tongue n cheek garter clasps. A Line mod dresses and fitted pencil skirt/ blouse combnations are shown along side hot pants and long sleeve sheer button up shirts. Hand pleated denim dresses and skirts add an effortlessly easy to wear touch to every silhouettes.
