Juice, Fast: Orange Emerges as the Surprise Color Trend of the Moment

-------

Now Trending: OrangePantone may have named Radiant Orchid—a dusty magenta—its color of the year for 2014, but judging from the latest Pre-Fall lineups, designers beg to differ. The hue that’s cropped up time and time again is orange, from true, juicy shades to red-tinged bricks and rusts. Pastel outerwear was all the rage in 2013, but now Narciso Rodriguez, Joseph Altuzarra, and Gucci’s Frida Giannini have pumped things up with tailored coats in spicy shades. Proenza Schouler added fire to the tonal trend with wrap dresses and separates done in paprika-colored buttery suede. Bottega Veneta’s Tomas Maier did his part, too, showing a cozy Creamsicle sweater and complementary tangerine trousers (and on It redhead Magdalena Jasek, no less). Will menswear designers take up the torch for Fall ’14? Tune in this January to find out.

Kering Invests in Tomas Maier

-------

Tomas MaierIt’s a good day to be Tomas Maier. This morning, Kering announced that it was entering into a joint venture with the designer in order to further develop his namesake label, which he founded in 1997. “I could not imagine a better partner than Kering for the Tomas Maier brand,” said Maier, who is perhaps best known for his role as the creative director of the Kering-owned Bottega Veneta, a post he’s held since 2001. “We speak the same language and have a mutual understanding of how to take this business we started fifteen years ago to new heights.”

A Frill a Minute

-------

Isabel Marant's Dramatic RufflesForget your average everyday ruffles. The flounces that count for Spring are exaggerated and bold. Bottega Veneta’s Tomas Maier sculpted mille-feuille shapes on day dresses from a cotton woven with copper so that the fabric held its exuberant form. Dries Van Noten covered several of his finale numbers with clusters of voluminous, unfurling rosettes. Isabel Marant showed a one-shoulder frock featuring endless tiers of rippling tulle, and Mary Katrantzou whipped up printed baby-dolls decorated with both real and (for good measure) trompe l’oeil frills.

Here, a slide show of Spring’s most dramatic ruffled looks.

Shop the look: Geometric

Holding strong since Spring ’12 (and going even stronger for Resort and Spring ’14), geometric shapes and patterns have remained a wardrobe necessity. Designers have managed to take a different angle with this graphic trend each season, giving the consumer a sure way to stand out. Let a single piece do the talking, or pair up different patterns to create an eye-catching tangle of geometry. Let your inner Mathlete out with Givenchy, Jimmy Choo, and more, below.
