Jill Stuart FW13 NYFW
No fashion week collection quite portrays the posh essence of a New York City socialite, like the way Jill Stuart does. The fall 2013 collection etched together Victorian Age inspired attire and modern elegance captivatingly. Midnight blue and oxblood hues energized the tailored tops and trousers effortlessly. The dark and deep tonality of the ensembles really banded together through the romantically aristocratic theme the entire collection possessed.
This royal retrospective was exhibited through the the layered folds that lined the lapels of many coats, and build-up of the shoulder and arm detailing, all of which were exaggerated sculptural details that lavished the ensembles of Royalty in the nineteenth century. Eloquent elements framed pieces endlessly, such as the bow-neck detail that was seen adorning the collar of many chimerical dresses and whimsical blouses.
The collection was one composed off of an elementary clean palette which was restricted to crispy whites, melancholic blues and blacks, and poetic, oxblood and crimson reds. The richness of these beautifully colored pieces ended up ornamented with jewel and metallic nuanced details, laser-cut floral perforations and preppy structured bows. The ensembles possessed a simple developed symmetry, as they were plentiful in A-line skirts, carved-out coats, and traditional tuxedo button downs. The garments seemed to dangle and swivel gently though the lightly textures fabrics.
The complexity and dynamic of her aesthetic beamed “modern day socialite”. Stuart’s classic dignified approach this season portrayed the timelessly chic looks of what would be a modern Jackie Kennedy, and brought traditional looks back into our contemporary world. fdmLOVES Jill Stuart fall 2013 selects by Brigitte Segura.
