American designer Vera Wang with an inviting sentiment of summer prepares the elegant Spring Summer 2014 collection presented during New York Fashion Week. Vera masterfully almost excludes the often essential white, daringly replacing it with the dominance of black. This stark colour often synonymous to a winter wardrobe with beautifully light design and structure of the garments fits with ease into the spring mood. Wang whose name is instantly connected to bridal-wear can understandably shy away from the white colour. Yet this bold move gives the new collection an attention worthy push in the right direction.
The other side of the palette, displays tones of red, green, and blue together with the light and modern cuts it can be seen as reminiscent to the four elements. We can even romantically see the collection divided in such a manner – earth, wind, water and fire take their walk on New York's runway.
Vera's woman is not on a trip to safari, or a lush vacation in Paris, she's ethereally connected in an empowering way with nature. The garments also in an eye-catching way connect elements of sportswear with classic lines of women's formalwear. What is a defining point of the collection, is most importantly the relaxing note of spring ease.
