A moment for Narciso

December 16, 2013
SIMPLICITY IS THE ULTIMATE SOPHISTICATION. And if anyone is the master of elegant simplicity, his name is Narciso Rodriguez. His thoughtfully executed clothes feel timeless and cool, but something about his quiet designs is undeniably sexy (may I add that he - along with Galliano & Calvin Klein - invented the slip dress as we know it?). So it was no surprise to see that he took something as simple as the T-shirt as a starting point for his 2014 Pre-fall collection, and then, he geniusly alchemized it.


The result was something I can only classify as ingenious. A luxuriously simplistic collection with clean lines and rigorous purity - from that minimalist take on the tradicional tweed suit, the tee dresses, two-tone cigarette trousers and jacquard tops; to the mostly black & white colour palette with some touches of blush and royal purple, and that bold-printed silk charmeuse cut on the bias to gently rework the classic. That subtle curvilinear line also made its way through to the accessories; structured boomerang-like clutches were a clever ergonomic answer to the ubiquitous pliable pouch... I've only got one word: magnificent.




I am honestly so enamoured by the look above... What about you? Which look is your favourite?

  1. I have always been an admirer of Narciso Rodriguez. His designs are minimalist chic personified and he gives us a fresh spin on feminine garments with the sporty and linear details. My favorite looks are the first few in your post. Thanks for sharing.
