They say what goes up must come down – and as it turns out, fashion is not immune to the basic rules of physics. While the runways were alive with sumptuous, dramatic materials and silhouettes, and bold gold proved the hue du jour, the flipside of this decadence was an American classic sportswear revival. Wearable, functional, easy and classic were the buzzwords this season as traditional cuts, tailoring and attention to detail defined the collections of endless designers. Vivienne Westwood sent out pragmatic preppy-chic ensembles, New Yorker Alexander Wang, who has long been blazing a trail for understated luxury, delivered seamless day-to-night dresses, tailored suit jackets and wear-with-anything biker jackets, while fellow New York label, Opening Ceremony, again infused their unique brand of sportswear with the effortless cool they’ve become known for – with Chloe Sevigny this season designing their menswear line after the previous success of her womenswear collection.
