Fashion Week 2014: Perfect Pairings

by Grace Bonney

fashion_week_matchup_header
New York City is abuzz with the insanity that is fashion week. I say that like I know anything about it, but I’ve actually never been to a real live show. But just being in the city this week feels like being a part of it because every street seems to be packed with glamorous people, impossibly-tall women and every interesting artist that’s ever dyed their hair bright green or worn a pair of crazy platform shoes. I remember thinking every day in NYC felt like that when I started my freshman year at NYU, but this week it really is true. To celebrate the fun that is fashion week, we thought we’d bring it home – literally – with interiors that remind us of some of our favorite fashion designers. From a classic black-and-white interior for (the master of the black dress) to a dramatic, vintage-inspired interior for , these are spaces in which we think these talented designers would feel right at home. xo, grace

: Feminine, pattern-oriented and with a healthy dose of texture, Lela Rose’s Spring 2015 collection is a wonderfully modern spin on her signature style. Patterns get oversized (like her gorgeous polka dots) and paired with more pulled-together checks and blue-and-white (china pattern inspired?) florals make a big appearance, too. But her use of pink is what always pulls me in. So to match her Spring 2015 collection I paired her with Caitlin Wilson’s beautiful home! Click here to see more of this pink-filled interior.

: Mara’s green-and-white prints reminded me so much of modern jungle and plant prints – sort of like a modern California spin on Josef Frank’s work. To go with Mara’s flare for bold, jungle-style prints, I paired her with Jon & Nina’s sunny California loft, which is filled with the sort of lush green prints Mara seems to love. Click here to see more of their home! I also paired Mara with Panama City’s American Trade Hotel, which looks like an island-pattern-filled space she would love.

: Diane Von Furstenberg’s 2015 presentation felt like a blast from the past to me. A quick blast back to the early 90s, to be specific. There are lots of black-and-white gingham prints and sunflowers. But I also really love the curve-hugging dresses in bright florals. Those black-and-white patterns reminded me of Maison 24’s home tour the most. All those strong patterns against curvy lines feels like Diane Von Furstenberg to me.

: This show made a major splash because it included a play presentation with some well-known actors, but it also showcased some bold, black-and-white colors and shapes. There were also spots of bright coral and orange mixed with black and white that felt equal parts retro and modern. To go with Opening Ceremony’s collection, I chose the Vento home, which makes great use of black-and-white patterns and shapes, as well as the occasional dose of color.

: This might be my favorite show of the whole season so far. I love Tanya’s mix of bright white and rich persimmon reds. That perfect orange/red hue feels so fresh and exciting. There was a great mix of modern wide stripes, but the patterns feel primarily feminine and floral-inspired. Cara Ore’s home, with its orange floral patterns, reminded me most of Tanya’s beautiful collection.

: Floral patterns, black and stripes: this is pretty much my dream collection in one fell swoop. I love the way Nicole created floral patterns that feel a bit blurred. Up against the clean, crisp stripes they feel so modern. I thought Naomi Stein’s home – with its stripes, bright pink and floral detailing – reminded me most of Nicole’s latest collection.

: The flower and stripe theme continues, but with a dash of Palm Beach green and pink in this Spring 2015 presentation. You can’t beat a classic, wide Kate Spade stripe. To go with this collection we chose Caitlin Wilson’s home with the perfect amount of wide stripe and floral detailing.

: The queen of the little black dress takes on neutrals this season with a HUGE collection full of neutral/tan garments. That’s never a color I love, so I was happy to see a nice dose of black and metallic/beaded details mixed in there, too. So to complement her collection, I paired her with a home in Portland designed by interior designer Jessica Helgerson. It’s got the right mix of neutrals and shiny black shadow detailing that reminds me of this collection.

: I always think of Tibi as a very pattern- and texture-focused line with a dash of retro, but this new collection is super minimal with oversized and blousy pieces that make me think of Tibi’s spin on Calvin Klein 90s minimalism. This chic minimalism is reminiscent of Laura Aviva’s NYC home. It’s all about simple, drapey style.

: Black and white was a major theme with the collections so far, but Alexander Wang’s show had some amazing pops of neoprene-style color. There was also a BIG dose of red/black/white mixed together. Sort of like the fancy clothing version of motorcycle gear. But I prefer the bright neon greens against black and white, so I’ve paired this collection with Raina Kattelson’s Hudson Valley home, which has a great lime green wall against minimalist black-and-white decor.

: Zac Posen is my new Oscar De La Renta (although, I still dream of wearing Oscar De La Renta) in the sense that he is all about modern glamour. There’s a little bit of old world glamour to his style, so I’ve paired him with the Edinburgh home of Roséline Lohr, founder and editor in chief of This is Glamorous.
