Traditional Oriental outfits are the new urban uniform in NY. Kimono-cut dresses, soft blouses inspired by Samurai uniforms. The precious materials recall those found along the Silk Road. This time though the destination is not Europe, yet the hectic and contemporary New York Brocade silk recalls the precious elements of traditional costumes: kimono-cut for Suno, while Proenza proposes a destructured, multi-layered shape. A sleeveless ink blue top for Erdem that choose orchid-shapes embroideries, like the typical flower of these Asian areas. The same austere mood is seen in the satinized silk ensemble with black background by Derek Lam. The pattern of the silk satin dress with slit by Barbara Bui is inspired by Chinese zodiac signs. As for separates, the Samurai tunic is destructured: a sleeveless model for Alysi, a romantic revisitation in orange with black bow for Au Jour le Jour. For the evening, with its elegant simplicity but eclectic hues: the long dress by Dries Van Noten worn with the lacquer red suede wedge shoe-boots that recall the geta, the traditional Japanese sandals.
