Tanya Taylor Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2015 New York
It's come to seem that the print (and of course the preference for skirts and dresses) is the takeaway from Tanya Taylor. Last Fall it was the sketches of a girl with a camera which were easily spotted on a front row attendee, and this season it was a geometric pinwheel of sorts that hit its stride best when done oversized and used sparingly on a black backdrop (or orange even as in the case of a standout wrap skirt).
For silhouette it was mostly a sort of fit through the waist, flare through hips look that has fallen back into the spotlight since Nicolas Ghesquiere championed it. It was quite appealing, with patent two tone belts accentuating the waist, but that's not where the Ghesquiere trends ended. Though the current creative director can't take full credit for it, that same first collection also pushed forward a trend of more wearable collections to be shown on the runway, which Cathy Horyn returned to the New York Times to write about not long ago. That trend was present here.
The result meant that the looks from the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist seemed retail ready, the small octagonal plexiglass bag in orange and black included.
