Alexandre Herchcovitch's vibrant but moody spring collection was a departure from last season's embellished, urban wears. The collection was made up almost entirely of sheath dresses with futuristic shapes, many of which had dramatic but less-than-flattering puff sleeves and pleated backs. The color scheme was bright and fun but, on such sophisticated silhouettes, not to be taken lightly. While Herchcovitch did some of this last spring, this time the pieces were simpler. But perhaps better executed.
Only a few looks conformed to the muted color scheme we keep seeing. The rest featured either bold pixelized graphics or shiny jewel-toned ombre (which was not as successful, in my opinion). Overall, the inspiration from abstract expressionist artists Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman was evident and well-interpreted. The shapes were impressive and interesting, but not the most wearable.
