NYFW: Chromat SS14
It was Fashion Week here in NY and I was off to see the Chromat SS14 Mathletes collection at The Out NYC with my aunt Alex. The designer, Becca McCharen, is extraordinary and talented beyond measure. She creates structural and abstract architectural cages and other accessories for the female form. All of which add edge and character to any ensemble. Her knowledge of architecture and urban design has made her a household name in fashion as an innovative genius all over the world. I was extremely excited when I got the invite to her show. I am a huge fan of her work and was so excited to see her new collection. I was also excited that I had the opportunity to wear my new Karen Millen dress as it fit the theme of the event perfectly. The show was amazing and the venue was beautiful. Models were dressed in cages and other structural accessories that made them look like warriors in armor. The models even had awesome platform boots and wedges designed by Becca. My aunt and I were completely blown away. I have to own one of these pieces at some point of my life lol. It is so good to watch Becca’s success grow and watch her continue to push the envelope with new and innovative designs every year. If you haven’t already seen the collection, take a gander inside!
This dress is definitely a statement piece! Karen Millen has designed most of my best dresses. This one is like nothing I have ever seen or ever owned until now. I love the pleated skirt and sheer sleeves. Very intergalactic if you ask me.
The pattern is consistent through the back of the dress as well.
To compliment the dress I gave myself a metallic smokey eye and painted my nails in OPI’s “Peace and Love” color which shines of purple and teal. It is such an incredible color.
To accessorize the dress, I wore some silver gems and a simple black Kate Spade purse. For shoes I wore these Zara pumps. I was going to wear a boot with a clear heel but they looked weird so I just went with these. Voila! Off I go! Chromat SS14 Mathletes! The Out NYC.
