I attended the digital showcase of the soon-to-be released designer collaboration featuring Narciso Rodriguez x Design Nation last night. It was a cute, kitschy event held at the IAC building in the Meatpacking District. (Last time I was here was for the Prabal Gurung AW12 show back in February..) Still trying to wrap my head around the idea of multiple voices in fashion showing up to a party to LITERALLY watch a slideshow of clothing, but it worked! So great to meet the design team behind this project...we talked colors and pairings for quite awhile. They presented an approachable, wearable collection featuring most of the basic staples every woman needs in her closet (shift dress, matching jumpsuit, easy shirt, cropped suit pants, etc) in simple monochromatic mashups and striking patterns.
After watching numerous collections during fashion week and analyzing these new collection, i've concluded color blocking is back to stay for fall and spring next year..and being as that i have a emotionally platonic relationship with color, I totally dig it!
Can't wait to try on all the new pieces they gifted me!
(This sporty printed silk 2 piece suit set is killing me... )
I'm serving major androgyny in it!
The collection will be available at all major Kohl's retailers nationwide on Nov 7.
