Hair by Linh Nguyen

Noon by Noor’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection was inspired by the idea of renewal and the lush blooms and greenery that the season brings. This concept translated into beautiful separates in vivid prints in modern cuts. Lead hairstylist Linh Nguyen was inspired by a sporty chic girl and created a sleek, loose ponytail with face-framing wisps that felt as young and fresh as the clothes. “I love how the ponytail looks as if it’s slowly falling out,” said Nguyen. “This is a perfect look for girls in the real world too…it’ll easily take you from day to night.”


For their spring collection at Noon by Noor, designers Shaikha Noor Al Khalifa and Shaikha Haya Al Khalifa cited spring — as in the very season itself — as their inspiration. More specifically, they focused on the idea of renewal, youth and beginnings.

Drawing on the season’s lush blooms and greenery, the duo sent out a fresh, painstakingly detailed collection that juxtaposed clean, minimalist silhouettes with playful prints and embellishment.

Daywear was the strongest; a pair of loose-fitting, pale pink and orange floral-printed silk pants perfectly captured the lineup’s femininity, while a peach panel dress with a sheer panel underlay featured impressive embroidered floral appliqués. The lineup ended with a series of silver looks, including a shift dress, a bomber jacket and a relaxed blazer, which added an edge of masculine cool.

Patrik Ervell’s spring 2015 collection was inspired by interior and industrial design, and features various technical fabrics such as polyurethane and vinyl on bombers, raincoats and shorts. Among the collection was a transparent vinyl rain duffle, a cerulean polyurethane vented macintosh, tourquise metallic polyurethane track pants, a black leather calfskin racing jacket and a watercolor print silk shirt (one of my favorites).

Also for his spring 2015 presentation, Ervell customized Dr. Marten leather strapped clogs to feature nylon straps in different colors. See how they were put together, get a closer look at the clothes and see the backstage moments with the models during hair, makeup and while getting ready for the presentation:

For spring, creative director Hanako Maeda looked at Yves Klein’s “Anthropometry” paintings — blue imprints of models’ bodies on white sheets of paper. The inspiration translated not only in the artsy print decorating the cropped Neoprene top and matching skirt that opened the show but also into less literal interpretations of the theme.

In particular, the dynamics of Klein’s art was echoed in flowing plissé panels and ruffles that added movement to feminine dresses worked in technical and knitted fabrics, which sometimes turned a bit too elaborate.

Keeping the silhouettes simple, Maeda scored her best results with a range of plissé knit pieces, including a straight-lined blue number embellished with cutouts on the shoulders and graphic, neon-orange details.

THEYSKENS THEORY | NEW YORK FASHION WEEK | SPRING/SUMMER 2015

THEORY

 

Hair by: Paul Hanlon

Theory’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection is its first since parting ways with former creative director Olivier Theyskens, who was at the helm for nearly four years. “In the past, a lot of people have seen Theory as super minimal and architectural, and they wanted to do something different,” said lead hairstylist Paul Hanlon. Hanlon created an undone ponytail with volume and face-framing wisps that felt fresh, young and sexy—and perfect for spring. “The look is sophisticated and beautiful, not sterile. Sometimes when the hair is too graphic, the girls end up looking a bit alienating—as if they’re part of a tribe. With this look, they each get to be individual characters,” said Hanlon.

TIM COPPENS

Hair by Yannick d’Is

When asked about the inspiration behind the hair for Tim Coppen’s Spring/Summer 2015 show, lead hairstylist Yannick d’Is replied, “What we’re trying to communicate is a feeling.” D’Is wanted to create a sexy, youthful style for both male and female models that would make them look and feel as if they were part of an urban tribe. “Imagine hopping out of the shower and throwing a beanie over your wet hair,” d’Is explained. “You take your hat off right before stepping into the club and your hair is flat at the top and textured on the bottom. That is the look and feeling we are trying to recreate.” The result is a fun and fresh hairstyle that goes perfectly with the tough clothes from Coppens’ collection entitled “Jungle Sunrise.”

NEW YORK (AP) — "When your halo slips for good, you'll have to wear your hood."

So sang British rocker Ian Brown — and so wrote designer Tim Coppens in his notes Sunday for a New York Fashion Week show of brightly colored outerwear and slouchy crew-and-shorts sets in white, gray and black for both men and women.

Coppens began as a womenswear designer but has focused of late on men. Now, he's looking to beef up his offerings for women.

In a backstage interview, he said his inspirations for spring were part Brown, part papery sleeves used to protect vinyl records when they're slipped into album covers — and part Manchester soccer fans who used to wear trenchcoats.

He used his signature "jungle sunrise" print but added blurred neons inspired by "basic laser lighting from back in the day."

Known for his use of technical fabrics, this time around there was a more fluid but still structured feel.

For women, he used tight flowing pleating that flowed at the back.

As for those trenchcoats, his bright reds and blues might be a welcome sight in menswear departments.

"There's not a lot of color around. I guess sneakers are colorful," Coppens mused.

And he didn't forget the hoods.

Hair by Ramona Eschbach

Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta, the talented young designers behind brand-on-the-rise Eckhaus Latta, avoided referencing any concrete concepts for their Spring/Summer 2015 collection. The design duo focused on textiles treated with rust and interesting cuts that fused creativity with wearability. Lead hairstylist Ramona Eschbach created two looks with rope braids—one down and one up—for the girls and a highly textured look for the guys to complement the clothes. “The hair was inspired by the texture of the clothes, so we wanted something rough and unfinished,” said Eschbach.

KOONHOR | NEW YORK FASHION WEEK | SPRING/SUMMER 2015 | NOWFASHION

There’s a focus on artisanal and handcrafted happening right now, likely one of endless attempts to push away from the table of fast, homogenized fashion and step into something a little more individualized and exclusive. Koonhor was just one of the brands doing this with fringe, intricate prints, graphic and cotton tapestry tunics. 

Proportions and silhouette were an important component of the presentation told in part by the Balenciaga-esque sculptural hats that shielded the heads of a few models. Silhouettes were loose with long sweeping sweatshirts and pleated skirts, turning the feminine figure into a column. Sleeveless asymmetrical vests, trench coats and leather pouches (the fringe was here as well) embedded the city and a sportiness into the collection, which was at its strongest with the aforementioned doodle graphic print in black and white.

VFILES | ZDDZ | RTW SPRING/SUMMER 2015 | STYLE.COM

ZDDZ BY DASHA SELYANOVA

There's something about a group show that brings out a festive spirit. At VFiles tonight—following a feel-good video message about togetherness from top model Carolyn Murphy—four relatively unknown men's and women's designers from around the world each presented a mini-collection to encouraging hoots and hollers from the audience. The receptive crowd included plenty of colorful downtown stars and Tumblr sensations, as well as enough bold-faced mentors—most notably, Calvin Klein's men's creative director Italo Zucchelli, who was all smiles—to keep the fresh-faced young things giddy with excitement well into the wee hours. Or, however late the VFiles x Def Jam DJ Championship, which doubled as the after-party, raged on. 

The democratic process of allowing designers anywhere to upload pictures and videos of their work to VFiles naturally favors extremes in shapes, colors, and concepts. The first and most promising of the group, Tigran Avestiyan, exhibited these in spades. The graduate of Central Saint Martins in London, who returned to his native Russia to found his label, based his collection on five actual bottles of name-brand fragrances he bought from duty-free stores in airports and fused them together into one unwieldy bottle that his models carried in clear plastic bags. They also wore tunics and shorts with a mishmash of crinkles and flashes of the words "Duty Free"—just enough to suggest cellophane packaging. The designer's message, that of the corruptive, corrosive nature of globalism, came through loud and clear. "It's good to be outside of fashion, seeing it from a distance," he said with a grin backstage, quickly adding, "Not that I wouldn't love to work in New York!" 

Next up was Hye Gin Hamm. Graduating from Parsons earlier this year, she drew inspiration from, she said, "a mix of American and Korean cultures," specifically, American denim and bulky silhouettes evocative of traditional Korean monks. Careful hand-bleaching of each oversized and layered item gave the collection an alluringly timeless, placeless quality. Showings by ZDDZ's Dasha Selyanova, another Russian, and Detto Kazuma of D.TT.K, both of whom produced highly graphic, slightly athletic collections, rounded out the very international showcase. 

Given the excellent IRL platform of VFiles, which is only a year old, it'll be interesting to see how these young hopefuls matriculate through the global fashion system. "It was challenging to choose four designers out of the hundreds who entered," said founder Julie Anne Quay, "but we work closely with our community and mentors [to look] for a point of view, salability, quality, and that's something special."
