Roksanda Ilincic Spring 2014 Collection

Another collection that pushes boundaries. I love the use of color and the play of proportion.
Is that beading on those last four looks? I can’t tell…
I believe that it is, yeah.
Apropos of nothing… I saw pictures from an acquaintance’s wedding, and all of the gents in the wedding party (and a lot of the guests) were wearing kilts, and I thought of my virtual “friend” Kiltd. They all looked rather smashing, too.
Sweet of you to think of me. Truly.
I thought of you too when I was watching a recent episode of McMillan & Wife on Netflix. It took place in Scotland. Rock Hudson looked particularly smashing in a kilt, though I do prefer him with a mustache, personally.
Sweet! How about a moustache and goatee?
I found myself staring at the shoes and ignoring the clothes. I doubt that was the intent.
One I actually looked at the clothes, I found the color blocking to be intriguing and I’m coveting the black/white/yellow dress. After the last batch of florals, this is a nice contrast (well played TLo on the back to back posts.)
Second half is interesting, but I really want the t-strap shoes.
Kinda love the red/yellow skirt.
And Bjork was happy. The end.
We have yet to see Ginnifer Goodwin convinced she is making one of the gowns work.
I have stumpy legs with thick ankles – man am I going to be in style next spring!
I can see Elle Fanning going buck wild over this collection.
I was just trying to figure out how to express that I felt this collection was entirely devoted to celebrating the cankle, and here you’ve done it. And yes, Elle Fanning!
Viva la cankles!
This expresses exactly one of major complaints of this collection.
I’d like a do-over in colors I find more pleasing to the eye. Not a huge fan of that beige, or that yellow, or that orange.
The yellow actually hurts.
I actually *love* that yellow! I actually bought yarn in that color (though, I also bought a soft grey to go with it, to soften the yellow a little).
What are you making?
I think I’m going to make a colorblocked shawl or scarf – that is, after I finish all of the baby gifts I’m working on (and Christmas gifts for my nephews, and the scarf that I started for my dad last year but haven’t finished yet…). A knitter’s work is never done.
A lot on your plate. I’m not a knitter (all thumbs and I keep losing my place), I’m a sewer. My sister is a big time knitter and tatter and sometimes she makes me something nice.
My aunt gave me a sewing machine last year, and I’ve been meaning to find the time to take lessons. One day…
I like this collection, but their giant hair bows make me think of the Flying Nun. Now I can’t unsee it.
Some young thing will knock it out of the park with the black dress with the square neckline and yellow posies at the hem.
Really like a lot of this particularly the last few pieces and the color block pieces at the beginning. Hate all of the shoes. Hate dresses with pants (yes also hate it if they are “tunics” which they are not).
A tad too many RAF SIMON / DIOR looks!
I guess these clothes are only for white people, seeing as there isn’t one African American model. yuk.
Paired down a lot of this would work on the RC, but other than Gaga & Rhianna I can’t imagine anyone wearing those oversized pieces.
Rita Ora, maybe? Not that it would go well, but she might try, bless her heart.
I really like this! I especially love the grey, yellow and white print. Some pieces are a little “out there,” but the majority of this collection is something that I’d love to see on the red carpet.
Love a lot of this, very clean and sleek.
That yellow coat, though? Couturewear for the one-eyed character in Despicable Me.
Eh. Interesting colors, but that length skirt is good on NO ONE.
This is challenging to me. If a model looks schlubby and larger than she is in your clothes, what chance do the rest of us have? I do love the ribbon/T-Strap heels thought…way cute.
OK, so, no one will ever do that rounded shoulder better than Balenciaga and Ghesquière. Celine did a nice update and Stella McCartney did a shapeless one (shocker). And here it is again this season, non-successfully (see: Marc Jacobs). That shape can only work – and usually won’t – when it is impeccably tailored couture. Showing it as RTW is just silly.
A few of the looks at the beginning made me think “futuristic bobby-soxer”–in the best possible way, of course. And I am this close to sending a bouquet to Ms. Ilincic for bucking the visible-nipples trend.
In theory I like the pants/leggings under dresses look. In practice, not much of it works well, at least for me. The only ones I really care for are the two dresses with vertical stripes. An aside note, doing a fast scroll down was a very unpleasant visual experience. Dunno why.
the shapes, the color blocking – it’s all been done, and done in more interesting ways. I’m not sure what boundaries are being pushed, except those of good taste.
Yellow really is my favorite color.
I like this in general, but I am not feeling the length of most of the skirts nor do I feel we should go back to the dresses over pants look. I do love her use of pattern and her sense of color.
Love the last look. I love the skinny jeans/leggings under long tops & sweaters look – but this dress/skirt over pants situation simply escapes me.
I need a pair of the black shoes with white bows!
Kind of reminiscent of the late 80s, in a good way.
I particularly like the looks with the black sheer ‘boxes’ work and the black cutout pieces.
A lot of yellow. Would anyone really wear huge blocks of yellow?
Someone’s been scoffing at the Raf at Dior buffet. Not complaining, mind you.
…this is spectacularly awful.
