Reed Krakoff Resort 2014 made simple silhouettes bold for warmer weather. Taking notes from Robert Motherwell’s Open Series, Krakoff revamped the artist’s abstracts for his own fashionable canvas. Uniting warm weather freedom with sleek function makes this collection one to remember beyond the resort presentations.
Ranging from whites to tans to blues, was a superior way of showing hotter hues. The abundance of white wasn’t minimalist, but simply warming viewers up for the powerhouse prints. Traditional florals went modern for resort, by zooming in and plastering them onto sleek outerwear. Lightweight jackets, from translucent graphics to the patterned variety, provided chic coverage for those crisp nights. A caramel cropped trench, either with the collection’s tailored shorts or a trouser, will surely be a hit past resort.
The soft fabrics gave way to sharp silhouettes. Hemlines hitting at the knee weren’t matronly, but mesmerizing, by adding a dash of asymmetry. Mixing materials also gave these basic pieces their extra punch, such as a leather tulip skirt with a slouchy sweatshirt. By covering a leather baseball top in holes, made the piece more breathable (and breathtaking too) when paired with blue pants. Completing the looks, barely-there heels and structured handbags helped the collection become effortless, not extreme. Joining leathers, flowers, and graphics, Reed Krakoff has us ready to standout this season. fdmLOVES selects from REED KRAKOFF resort 2014 Brigitte Segura, written by Mary Anderson.
