Wes Gordon RTW Fall 2014

With his second runway show, Wes Gordon reached his goal: shaping a more defined identity for his woman.

“The inspiration for this season was the city after a rain,” said the designer backstage before the show. Gordon re-created that feeling of surreal calm following the storm through the use of a sophisticated color palette of delicate hues and soft fabrics.

The pretty lineup was heavier on daywear than in past seasons — but none of its elegance was lost. Dresses and separates in streamlined, elongated silhouettes were worked in rich fabrics, like a woven wool and rubber tweed bell skirt worn with a cropped dégradé color-blocked sweater, and a baby blue silk georgette sheath with a sheer tulle insert paired with an oversize cashmere cardigan. The look was hyper-chic yet cool.

Gordon also injected a powerful twist in the lineup via strong outerwear with a masculine, almost military, feel. These included a double-breasted felt maxi coat over a plunging V-neck dress, and a loden wool felt overcoat with fox fur collar worn with a brushed wool double-breasted power suit.
