Sally Lapointe - NYFW

According to LaPointe's show notes she stated that "Pina Bausch [a late modern-dance choreographer] had the ability to both shock and inspire. Raw, honest and a bit crude, it was an assault on all expectations," and in an interview says that that girl she is designing for is the woman we call our "dark beauty. She is this sophisticated modern woman who is still very feminine but she's got a little bit of an edge to her. And we also kind of throw around the word handsome, so she's not overly girlie or overly sexy - she's got this kind of quiet allure to her, thats very attractive and handsome." These kind of set the scene for the runway show but I was absolutely thrilled when the first look came out. This collection featured clashing textures of which included furs, ostrich feathers, artisanal knits, chiffon, jersey, pebbled leather and an array of silks on loose fitting trousers, flowing gowns and oversized knits. 

Much like Wu's collection, this new designer gave a feminine and sophisticated look with the fur, silks, linear aesthetic and straight silhouette but with a little bit of a contemporary edge, by slashing her grey wool skirts and tops. This collection is absolutely to die for. I want it.
