NYFW – A Détacher A/W 2014 collection
For her autumn/winter 2014 show, A Détacher cleverly displayed her love of sportswear through layering and a fabulous line of knits. It’s obvious she has a gift with knitwear, as most of her sweaters, dresses and cardigans could have easily been pulled off a model and worn out into the night. A particularly striking technique was a kind of quilting done to an orange, 70s-inspired plaid; along the stripes in the plaid were quilted stitches that added texture to a flat pattern.
The most athletic looks paired basketball-length shorts on top of longer, leather pants. While this may sound like a fashion disaster, it actually worked in pretty much all of the ensembles. This collection’s ease of walking the line between wearable and editorial seemed too good to be true. Even the somewhat off-putting orange plaid grew on you after a few outfits walked past.
A Détacher topped off her girls in, what appeared to be, helmets made of the models’ hair. The amount of hairspray it took to achieve the helmet and hair coming out from underneath we may never know. Make-up was kept pretty simple, save for bright, rosy cheeks, as if the girls had just run in from playing a game of football. This collection was incredibly smart, and we should expect to see fashion trend-setters rock some A Détacher come autumn.
