New York Fashion Week: Charlotte Ronson S/S’14
Charlotte Ronson put her feminine foot forward for her Spring 2014 collection, leaving behind her signature grungy aesthetic, and replacing it with Parisian gamine, with a tomboyish twist of course. A completely charming little collection, that has a feel of the swinging sixties clashing with the fifties, with all the adorable Peter Pan collars and flared trousers, merged with neck ties and polka dots.
Accessorising to perfection, the models wore fantastically ginormous block heeled shoes, along with some truly hipster style granny glasses and a kitsch little cherry bag. One model was even draped with a diagonally tied sweater. How very cool!
By mixing pretty, feminine designs with leather and zipper accents, it toughened up the cutesy pieces, which provided the perfect balance between pretty and cool, steering away from overly girly territory.
From seersucker gingham and pastel palette florals, to white eyelet fabrics and monochrome polka dots, the collection blended so well and came off as so wearable, that we could see every single piece becoming staples in our wardrobes. All in all, an incredibly lust worthy collection from Charlotte Ronson this year. Hats off!
