The fall 2014 New York shows have nearly come to a close and while subdued, sophisticated and somewhat practical pieces have dominated the collections, a few statement-making themes have surfaced as well. Several influential designers showed bold color in strong ways; while all-red looks appeared at Prabal Gurung, Donna Karan and Victoria Beckham, modernist color-blocking popped up at Derek Lam, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Thakoon.
One use of color we especially loved: pops of Yves Klein blue at Alexander Wang, Altuzarra and Proenza Schouler’s fall shows. The shade was used on sporty, almost futuristic looks and set against graphic black and white for a dramatic effect. Want to incorporate this beautiful hue into your wardrobe now?
