Summary: Sally LaPointe’s Fall 2013 RTW collection takes a serious turn towards the dark side. Inspired by Depeche Mode’s “In Your Room,” LaPointe presents us with a collection centered on a strict color palette: neutrals, black, and red. Set at New York City’s Pier 59, the venue was a fitting urban backdrop to showcase this collection.

Silk, wool, and leather come together in boxy silhouettes to create a perfect balance of both masculine and feminine. Ombre fabrics keep burgundy looks from being boring, while a bright, almost fire engine red in leather and silk make a dramatic appearance in cutout dresses and jumpsuits. All black numbers are kept from being boring by LaPointe’s intricate use of leather detailing, and skirt draping.

In all, LaPointe gives us a devilish collection of versatile clothing fit for a modern city girl.

Textures and Fabrics: Wool, suede paired with patent leather, silk, crocodile print, jersey, and colored leather.

Colors: Lots of black, pink, red, camel, bone, ocelet, burgundy ombre, and crocodile print in shades of grey.

Key Looks: Pink and red bonded mohair sweater, red leather skirt, black leather gators; Pink leather dress, black leather gators; and Camel suede jacket, camel and bone suede/crepe jumpsuit.
