Cacharel Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2014 Paris
Cacharel has always been about reinterpreting the brand's iconic shirt dress, and we must admit, creative directors Ling Lui and Dawei Suan have done quite a good job, as they referred to the brand's DNA, and edged their looks with contemporary details.
And the job wasn't easy: the Chinese designer-duo was appointed after a row of fast-paced successions at Cacharel's creative direction, but Lui and Suan proved that they were not only able to hold the reins of the brand but actually eager to add a fresh statement to the existing design inventory.
And this freshness was mainly expressed through the prominent use of colors. Even if the palette remained rather tame on the runways this season, Cacharel opted for the contrary and introduced a vibrant magenta sky blue and emerald green hues on silky, peplum shirt dresses, flared jumpsuits and boxy coats.
Mixing business and cocktail looks, the designers played with clean flared fits, and added a feminine touch with floral explosions of eye-popping, hand-drawn prints that were literally invading the silhouettes. Boxy neoprene coats with oversize herringbone patterns, were thus, sported with crispy cotton poplin shirt dresses, while striped Lolita-worthy, cocktail dresses came with the mentioned flowery garden prints. All airy and lighthearted, just like the typical Cacharel girl.
