At the Allston location we created five looks that highlight how current NYFW trends will translate into spring 2014.
A major look seen go down the runway was witchy, bohemian-inspired but a little darker than the past. This includes lots of fringe, embellishments, flowy constructions and tons of suede in neutral tones.
Spring 2014 is all about black and white, muted colors and two tone prints. We took this black and white trend and put an edge to it by mixing and layering leather, since we’re continuing to see leather in all forms everywhere.
This next look you may find at a local coffee shop swarming with college students. By adding classic red, we allowed the black and white trend to pop.
To mirror the muted palette seen in multiple designer collections, we’ve created a look that takes pastel to a whole new level. We’ve taken ethereal light colors with two tone prints on a structured pattern, perfect for the modern young professional.
Lastly, instead of mixing prints as we’ve seen in the last few seasons, matching prints is huge. We can see this fashion-forward girl with a coordinating two-piece outfit with splashes of chartreuse to make it pop.
How will you translate spring’s trends?
