Proenza Schouler - Runway - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014

Art on the runway: Proenza Schouler
Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez extended fashion's love affair with clashing abstract prints through a series of hyper-graphic patterns that are so mesmerizing, they make you feel like you're staring into a fire. Think: a computerized, pixelated version of Jackson Pollock. Rounded, sculptural shapes on coats, suits and dresses kept the arty feeling going throughout the collection. — Kenya Hunt
Anna Sui - Runway - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014

Chinoiserie and then some at Anna Sui
Sui’s print-happy collection kicked off with looks in bold red and black. Images of old Chinese cityscapes and dragon prints — the designer drew inspiration from Twenties-era movie star Anna May Wong, the first Chinese-American to cross over — adorned some of her psychedelic, layered looks, which ranged from flowy pajama dressing to Chanel-style tweed skirt suits. — Tina Chadha

Hugo Boss - Runway - Fall 2014 Mercedes - Benz Fashion Week

 

Hugo Boss, no longer a boys’ club
Jason Wu’s debut collection for Hugo Boss, which was the brand’s first womenswear runway show, was all polish and immaculate tailoring in a very brand-appropriate neutral palette of gray, camel and black. Looks including a strappy charcoal cocktail dress and snug coats were tightly belted at the waist and reached well below the knee. They oozed Wu’s signature ladylike aesthetic and clearly stated,“Move over, boys.” — Tina Chadha
