New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013 [Day 3]: Mimi Plange

Written by . Posted in Blog, Events, Fashion Shows, Features.

In true nature of the Mimi Plange brand, the designer took us on a compelling journey of versatility – Season after season, the label churns out a totally different assemblage from the former; Sophisticated, Grown with the substantial amount of sexy infused. This collection which was said to have been inspired by the Victorian era tea party was translated into a pastel-dominated collection featuring 50s pleated swing skirts, bell sleeved blouses, as well as maxi,knife-pleated,collared Victorian-era dresses – all synonymous to one and the other due to the printed floral motif on each. A striking color contrast might we add, fushia pink against  mint green silhouettes. On a plainer note, the designer further pushed the pastel story; this time, there were no motifs involved – subtle color blocking and crop trousers were involved.

On the other side of the room, there was more vivaciousness – brighter tones, intricate beading/embroidery as well as a sheathed piece. Interestingly, the designer didn’t get carried away by all that, the aesthetic of the collection remained – Parisian type glamour, midi lengths and intricate work showed attention to detail. A quieter bit of the collection were the shift work-wear numbers; some sheathed, others shoulder-caged. There was a stand alone piece that for us summarized the entire collection story; intricate detailing involved, pastel silhouette as well as length.
