Alexandre HerchcovitchFall Winter 2014 New York

Runway Review
2/9/2014 Ed Kavishe/fashionwirepress.com

This fall, Alexandre Herchcovitch would have us step back to a daintier time. His AW14 offering was decidedly lighter than moodier collections of seasons past, while kept relevant with carefully curated looks presented impeccably styled. Accessories delivered their intended effect, the Karen Walker-esqe eyewear worked flawlessly across the collection and neat belts reigned in looks to give a sharper silhouettes. Pointed lace-ups gave weight to the airy look; worn over sheer sockettes they felt modern, toughened by loosely buckled ankle straps.

Disheveled models arrived on the runway in an intentional state of undress, as though missing their final layer, still preparing to head out from their cosy little house on the prairie. Garments were strategically layered in perfected disarray, baring the straps of simple camisoles and revealing maiden skin underneath.

A palette that began seeping in peaches and cream lent an air of innocence to the dewy models, before just a few slam-dunks of precise garnet tailoring introduced darker, more gothic looks.

Vintage-inspired lace and embroidery was created with traditional techniques in Herchcovitch’s home Brazil, some taking months to carefully construct. And while the designer paid tribute to a simple country girl, don’t mistake her for genteel: this collection was at once determined and capable.
