Boxy shoulders, wide-legged trousers and pin stripe suits were commonplace on the runway during the Fall 2014 RTW collection presentations. Designer Phillip Lim opted for the wide-leg trouser with boxy, color-block tops, lending a masculine silhouette overall, while Dior kept his cuts slim and feminine, while taking inspirtation from the tuxedo in his vest and trouser pairings. Also, adding elegance and charm were the long satin gloves paired with v-cut vests.
Alexander Wang’s collection had a military-inspired, utilitarian vibe, as models donned heavy over-sized shirt dresses with leather collars that featured multiple cargo pockets. The ensembles were paired with knee-high leather rainboots and hair was cut short, and makeup neutral.
Alexis Mabille put a vintage spin on her suit collection. Though still featuring the wide-legged trousers and oversized hats, her details were soft and sophisticated. For example, the buttons that embellished the coats, or the way the white undershirts had a bias cut and ruffled accents.
