Indigo is my most prominent color. Overall, I paid attention to dark industrial tones. This included a mix of Black, Gray, Olive Green, Gunmetal and Mocha with accents of Wine, Neon Flame, Pale Blue and Pomegranate Red.
I looked to New York City in the 1930s, specifically when it was in a period of industrialization and the country was in a postwar state. I was also inspired by the Art Deco movement, which influenced architecture, fashion, and art in the city.
Indigo stands out as the most important color in fall 2014, because it encompasses many of the themes and eras I was inspired by. It worked really well with the use of work wear, men’s wear, shirting, and even the more glamorous pieces. In a way it represents the duality of that time period, a mix of luxury and utilitarian.
