Kaufmanfranco is one of my absolute favorites from NYFW. The Kaufmanfranco woman is chic, complex yet simple, confident, and understated sexy. In essence, the characteristics that I believe are the foundation of great style.
Designers Ken Kaufman and Isaac Franco created a collection for S/S '14 that stayed true to their vision. The looks were clean, understated, and a brilliant mix of body conscious and refined. The colors were mostly neutral shades such as white, black, blush and beige with two featured shades: neon red and gold.
The collection also portrayed an element of contrast. Sleek silhouettes, precise tailoring, and edgy bandage and zipper detail were juxtaposed with softer elements like organza or tissue suede, embroidery, and lace. Other fabrics used in the collection were white leather, silk sheeting and linen.
Although the Kaufmanfranco collection for S/S '14 was predominantly sportswear, one of the standout looks was a gold embroidered gown (pictured below). Definitely, a red carpet look!
Love, love loved this show and already looking forward to the next one!
