For Spring 2015, Sally LaPointe thought about the idea of spring cleaning — approaching the season by cleaning the visual palate. The result, a fresh, confident, and committed collection. And the looks were really just that — clean lines, crisp feel, and so chic!
LaPointe describes the collection as being “void of confusion and excess. It is boiled down to only core essentials. The act of stripping away reveals a sense of confidence and ease in the clothing.” With this there is a clear focus on each look being very cool and with a high luxury vibe. LaPointe has applied her traditional powerfully feminine, linear aesthetic to relaxed silhouettes, which even further aides in delivering this clear and focused message and point of view for her S/S 2015 collection!
This collection has a lot to offer and takes one on a fashion-filled journey —
easy going silhouettes and separates
lower hemlines on full-cut trousers
carefully draped tops, and some even cropped!
The color palette goes with the relaxed, chic, and easygoing vibe of the overall collection in that of cool hues and tones. As seen above, there is tons of black and optic white, but also varying shades of purple, i.e. magenta & lavender;
Stand-out featured pieces for the collection include sculpted dresses in techno jersey
and artisanal knits with ostrich feather accents.
Feathers are featured on several key dresses, furthering the concept of a fresh start. Lapointe considers them as uplifting and symbolic of a higher power. The feather-work is translated into oversized graphic prints. Images of feathers were magnified, producing a painterly effect. Key fabrications include lightweight bonded silk, double-faced jersey, printed chiffon, pebbled leather, and silk gazaar.
LaPointe adds, “The idea of letting go was my focus this season. I wanted to deliver a collection that was clear and concise, amplifying the power and conviction of the clothes.” This collection didn’t have a lot of fuss; it was the clothes, the garments themselves, that did all of the talking. And I loved this collection and what it had to say. The pieces were well made, high quality, very luxurious, and versatile. Kudos and high marks from Fashion Nexus to Sally LaPointe!
The beauty, make-up look was very clean, very fresh, to keep in line with the underlying theme of the collection — lightly bronzed cheeks, light coral lip, and lavender eyes.
There were some amazing accessories that were also a part of this show, from coordinating handbags/totes to exquisite silver belts.
