Bugs, Plaid and Silk Tulle: Vera Wang Fall/Winter 2014

“It’s very me! It’s dark, it’s gothic, it’s depressing . . .” said Vera Wang, designer famous for her romantic wedding dresses much loved by celebrities. This time she was inspired by grunge, goth style and insects, and even made a sweatshirt with “You Bug Me” words printed on it. The collection is mostly dark, sporty and casual with pieces like plaid coats and dresses, leather skirts and trousers and chunky sweaters, but she also used romantic printed chiffon, cobweb lace and pleated silk tulle for sexy evening dresses.

The whole collection is very youthful but it features some grown-up glamour with details like fur accessories, leather gloves and big insect brooches. “People think of me for romance, but there’s always the old references to what our brand stands for. There’s a tomboy, male energy mixed in with a sensuality”, she said.

Fall/Winter Trends: Leather

This fall is not just about leather jackets and coats, but everything from dresses and skirts to gloves and boots. Leather is this season’s must and it is completely reinvented and used in unexpected ways. While Prada fall/winter collection features some beautiful and extravagant long red leather skirts, Viktor & Rolf designed leather jackets with huge bows, and Valentino royal blue A line dresses with white lace left everyone breathless. Dior, Mulberry, Lanvin and Haider Ackermann produced some inventive leather coats and, among many others, Fendi, House of Holland and Roksanda Ilincic designed beautiful leather shirts and tops.

Trend varies from fierce looking jackets and trousers inspired by grunge and architectural shapes to romantic ladylike dresses in 40s style. It is leather head to toe quite literally, since Phillip Lim and Chanel even covered legs in it.
