The New York fashion scene is like a rotating door, constantly churning people out and making room for their replacements. Here at Nu-Mode´, a lot of our favorite designs come from some of those who are fresh into the rotation; we love the risk and ingenuity that young designers are forced to grapple with to make a name for themselves, and few seem to be doing it as well as Azede Jean-Pierre. With seemingly quite the jump from her energetic, bug-inspired frenzy of color last season, Jean-Pierre continues to show us her versatile design skills with her 2014 fall/winter collection.
Always focusing on wearability, Jean-Pierre stuck to mostly white, black, and grey, with a surprising burst of color halfway through the runway show in the form of a gorgeous orange-black metallic fabric. Garments took easy, draping silhouettes in touchable materials, and knit baubles tied in a little bit of the cheeky vibe Jean-Pierre has lent in previous collections. Loose, romantic waves worn under slouchy beanies added a touch of who-cares coolness to each look, while strappy leather sandals and leg warmers provided an unexpected contrast to loose-fit pants and heavy knits.
