NYFW: Killing me Softly

February 15, 2014

After a very intense, overtly colorful and exuberantly arty spring season, the gang of NY seemed to retrieve back in their (soft) shell, killing softly all kinds of loud color. In fact, the urban almost agressive vibe that NY normally offers, seemed to soften up to the point of pastel and fuzzy material. From mohair overdose at Costa’s take on Calvin Klein, cashmere OTT at the Olsens’ brand and Jeremy Scott’s subversive take on lockroom action, or even Wang’s first shy steps to slighly more feminine shapes, the message was loud and clear: go soft or go home.

The biggest hommage to soft was done by none other than Marc Jacobs who got his inspiration somewhere over the rainbow. The question still remains whether this season will end up being a total snooze. Here’s hoping that Muccia, Phoebe, Nicolas et al will give us yet another season to remember.
