WILDFOX‘s Creative Director Kimberley Gordon presented the label’s Fall 2014 collection, Sense & Eccentricity, which was inspired by “Jane Austen, England and sisters.” This was the brand’s first runway show at New York Fashion Week. How EXCITING & WOW what a show! When you think about the collection, remember these inspirational words from Austen — “There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.”
Words that certainly come to mind with this collection are cozy, romantic, & dramatic. The looks are ones you might find yes, while lounging around at home. But you could also find it for streetwear casual chic style, out for the day with the girls (lunch, shopping) or really anywhere you want to invoke an easy breezy vibe.
Romanticism comes about in the soft color tones & bright florals. There are certainly some bolder prints & colors, but also intermixed are soft greys, blush pinks, sky blues, nudes, & whites. No collection is complete without a little bit of drama. And for WILDFOX that includes the textual messages, the flowing long skirts, and the imaginative figures on some of the blouses, such as a swan or drummer.
So what can be seen in this collection — gorgeous wooly knits, super-soft thermals, sets & separates, rich/dark/lavish colors, florals, fun prints, stand-out texts, & more! The brand listed it’s own stand-out styles, but here are some of mine!
The show featured music by Hannah Bronfman and Brendan Fallis, hair by Jorge Luis for PRIVE, make up by Sarah Lucero for STILA, nails by INCOCO, location being Pier 59 Studios, set design by Andrea Huelse, and Production & PR by People’s Revolution.
