Texture was a huge trend on the FW14 runways. A slew of upcoming designers as well as the most influential ones played with textures in such fun ways. From fur and tweed to suede and even embellishments, this not so new trend is here to stay and will make a stylish and intriguing addition to both your post 9-5 cocktail stop look and your spicy hot night time ensembles. Finish it off with sultry makeup a clutch and heels and you'll be unstoppable. Visual boredom? Nah!
This blazer with it's ribbed nubby appearance and an exaggerated collar that added depth to it, the skirt with the cascading pleat detail and visible luster, and the mock turtle neck top all had different textures yet worked well together - Texture Heaven! They had enough drama and zero competition from my accessories.
How did you feel about the Yves Saint Laurent brand dropping the ‘Yves'? Are you one of those that wore the controversial and headline making 'Ain’t Laurent without Yves' tees? I am with you on that one. It felt like the brand would never be the same. And what about the iconic logo? Die hard YSL fans worried and still worry. But it appears to have been a seamless transition. Saint Laurent pieces remain very highly priced, very exclusive, and available only in upscale stores and boutiques. The quality and high style they are known for has also stayed the same. One of the most influential and celebrated designers of our time may be gone but his impact in the fashion industry is not going anywhere anytime soon. "Chanel freed women and I empowered them". - Yves Saint Laurent and dare I add 'and continue to empower them'.
