Marios Schwab RTW Fall 2014

You can’t hold a candle to the little black dress. That seemed to be Marios Schwab’s message at his pert fall show, which featured versions of that eternal style parading past rows of flickering candles lined up on the runway.

They were short and vaguely A-line, with kitten heels and blunt haircuts telegraphing a Sixties London vibe. Schwab varied the dresses with rivets of corset and bra details, as well as kicky panels at the sides of skirts. Black leather military bombers, cropped just under the rib cage, looked great tossed over them.

The designer rarely strayed from the theme, softening the LBDs here and there with pieces of chiffon. Handkerchief gowns came in glossy Art Nouveau lace, layered over pastel chiffons.

There was a hint of danger to the show: A tasseled scarf drifting from the throat of one model brought to mind Isadora Duncan’s tragic end.
