Jackets on jackets on jackets! For the upcoming Fall/Winter 14 season designers are earning major outerwear style points. Heavy layering of the usual outerwear materials such as shearling, wool, and leather are taken to new heights with their thought out color combinations, and varying silhouettes. Technical details in the outerwear reflect a respect given to the functionality of a piece as well as its individual innovation for whomever wears it. Classic baroque, floral, and tartan patterns make an appearance on a few different runways reminding us that the past is always in. Although we could have predicted the charcoal and pop jewel tones peppered throughout the shows of NYFW the real surprise came in the unconventional designs of the handbags and knee-high footwear. Chinese take out boxes, fur lined muffs, and a modern take on the brown lunch bag have us wanting more. In conclusion the Fall/Winter 14 season might have you more prepared for the unpredictable while staying of the ahead of the fashion curve. Stay tuned for our reviews from LFW!
