The Disciplined Modernists: Alexander Wang, Michael Kors,Victoria Beckham and Jason Wu! Xx

Perhaps the most Modern and forward looking
 of all shows in NYC 
this September was Alexander Wang
which received a standing ovation.  
At the end the lights were turned off and his designs 
appeared in all their fluorescent beauty.

backstage before his show 
“tension and subtraction expressed through structure and fluidity.”
The separate deconstructed elements were 
held together with threads so that the clothes could 
 "float on the girls, but not in an ethereal way,” 
Wang explained, “always keeping the structure.”

Michael Kors echoed Marc Jacobs' take on the sixties
 with a limited colour palette - black, white
accented with the primaries - red, green, yellow and blue.

There were stripes, checks, studded leather and 
structured Jackie O type Jackets
with a modern futurist feel.

Victoria Beckham
Very Puritan, disciplined lines, strict colour palette 
black white, beige and bright red.
For perfect dressing

 Jason Wu
Still Monochrome - black, white, very dark navy 
and beige accented with red.
Jason Wu's collection may veer towards the more decorative
with his use of lace, print and tulle but remains 
very Disciplined in silhouette and cut.


Until next time J Xx
