New York Fashion Week Spring ’08. Alexandre Herchcovitch Throws A Curve Ball. Second City Style Fashion Blog.

Fountain of 30

September 6, 2007 • New York Fashion Week Spring '08

Summary: There
was something about Alexandre Herchcovitch’s Spring 08 collection that was
devilishly charming. And it wasn’t just the predominant red and black numbers,
but also the quirky interpretation of the classic tuxedo and its evolution into
flirty cocktail dresses. Herchcovitch continued in his tradition of impeccable
tailoring, and made a statement that began as dark androgyny and ended light
and feminine.

Color
Palette:
Limited, yet dapper, Herchcovitch showed only black, white, red, and a
surprising chartreuse.

Textures
& Details:
Presenting no shortage of details, the collection showcased double
breasted coats, lapel necklaces,
white cuffs, bow-ties, jackets
with tails, cummerbunds, suspenders
and corsages. Also making an appearance were exaggerated
collars, paper sack skirts, and necklines that alluded to the petals of springtime’s
crocuses and tulips. The styling was severe: models donned smoky eyes, red
matte lips and their hair tight in buns.

Key Looks: I
named it the yin-yang dress because its black and red waves were harmonious and
symmetrical, and it seemed to float airily as the model walked down the runway.
Another standout was the 3-piece suit inspired black halter dress that is sure
to inspire layering in a more constructed, tailored manner.

    oohhh i think AH is probably one of those designers who does a much better job with spring than autumn. i loved spring 07’s no do much fall, and i love this spring 08. so nice to see they aren’t getting too much into the easter egg look that most people associate with spring.
