NY Fashion Week Fall ’08. Alexandre Herchcovitch: Geometry, Futuristism and Color

February 2, 2008 • New York Fashion Week Fall '08







Summary: While it seemed that Fashion Week started out decidedly safe this year, we thankfully had Brazilian designer Alexandre Herchcovitch to go the other direction, and frankly, it was needed. Ladies, no more cinched waists, it’s all about the shoulders and bright colors in Herchcovoitch’s world. True the show began with 14 black looks consisting of jumpsuits, dresses and gowns which were standouts with black fur embellishments melded to wool, but then the infusion of color began. Silk, softly constructed, flowing short and long dresses began to spill down the runway sometimes mixed with the aforementioned black fur or wool plaid. Color blocking, strong shoulders, geometric and architectural shapes came into play to culminate into a very sixties futuristic, yet feminine and quite striking display. The progression from very structured to free-flowing came together beautifully with the prefect orange dress finishing the show. The blocky, patent Miu Miu’esque booties and boots had me at hello.
