The vibe at Elene Cassis’ first show under the tents at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, was a good one. With energetic music by Santigold and more, it was the perfect vibe to start off a great evening of the last night of Fashion Week.
Now about the clothes. I really liked many of the pieces and loved the detailing. The line was inspired by the New York skyline. The wine color gown, a black textured mini, with a scalloped hem was my favorite, and a leather skirt with a zipper slit.
I didn’t have the best seat in the house, but I did my best to get pictures. The line was filled with textured (maybe wool or cotton) blends, leather, suede, and silk; all great elements for the Fall season. She used a lot large blocking detail, which was particularly successful with the leather and suede. Fur was also incorporated in the collection is a sort of Russia meets New York kind of way. The line seems to be geared to the sophisticated 30 something New York woman, but I look forward to seeing more.
I lost my paperwork that would have told me who the make-up artist was but I loved the clean, flawless, dewy look of the models.
