Lorry Newhouse RTW Fall 2014

The upcoming Charles James show at the Met, the draping techniques of Madame Grès and the Forties served as inspiration for Lorry Newhouse’s elegant presentation, shown vignette-style in the Soho House library.


Newhouse has a love of vintage and techniques of yore — she unearthed one factory on Long Island that still does the Forties-style shirring that appears throughout the collection.


A beautiful neutral palette of brown, camel and navy predominated her day looks, which featured a gorgeous brown silk crepe dress with swaths and drapes in all the right places. The lone white dress, a sharp-looking number with piped seams, crisp collar and nipped waist, was accented with her new belt collection. Newhouse is also introducing scarves and elbow-length gloves this season, and they accompanied most looks.


The era’s inspiration was most evident for evening. Silk charmeuse spaghetti-strap gowns with open backs and draping on the derrière were set against a gray wool felt bustier dress with a voluminous layered skirt, and a black and burgundy version made from an exquisite French fille coupe fabric.
