Fashion Week Fall / Winter 2015: Charlotte Ronson, Ricardo Seco

Charlotte Ronson
Charlotte Ronson has perfected the ready-to-wear runway look. Not only is she a celebrity favorite among notables like Nicole Richie, Diane Kruger, Kate Moss and Leighton Meester, but her looks appeal to the everyday young professional who is both on point in the office and ready to go out after work.

The overall palette was predominantly neutral sticking mostly to grey, black, olive green, blue, and pink. Ronson added some unexpected pops of deeper colors with a burgundy lace dress which stood out among the softer neutral colors. Although I could have walked away with the entire collection, the burgundy lace dress was one of my favorites.

Her pieces are not only stunning but practical. They are effortlessly chic and combine high fashion and sophistication with wear-ability. Ronson’s collection was inspired by the balance of nature in an abstract setting and the purity of 60’s sportswear and construction paired with very feminine and delicate details. Her collection featured military- inspired trousers, cropped jackets, jersey dresses, sheer tops and knit sweaters. The chunky sweater and slowing fabrics exuded a cool effortlessness that made me envy the woman wearing them. Charlotte Ronson absolutely knows what girls want right now.

Ricardo Seco
Menswear with attitude is the simplest way to describe Seco’s collection. Effortless black and white pieces were selected for the Fall/Winter presentation at the New Museum. Leather, wool and cotton were some of the selected fabrics paired with impeccable and sophisticated fits. A pop of color was present on the on-going collaboration of the designer with New Balance, which complemented perfectly the monochromatic outfits. True to Seco’s Mexican origins, every piece had unique details inspired by traditional Mexican artisan’s work.
